Word Art Wednesday Challenge #14

Word Art Wednesday challenge is featuring the scripture:

Job 19:25     I know my Redeemer lives.

I haven't always truly understood this verse. Until 2005 I hadn't really had my faith tested.  When you hear the words "you have a very aggressive type of cancer" you start thinking about life & death.

Do I really believe God is with me? 
Psalm 23 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 

I spent 11 months in the hospital from Tuesday to Friday almost every week for chemo treatments. In the middle I had surgery where they removed my right bottom jaw & replaced it with a bone from my leg. 
God was with me every day! He carried me right thru.  I found out for sure-MY REDEEMER LIVES!

He loves me so much that he never left me. He blessed me with excellent doctors, nurses, CNA's.  He proved HE LIVES in the many people that crossed by path. He sent me strangers to be my friends who encouraged me. He made my family stronger. When I'd come home, I was met by cards, calls, food, prayer from my many friends and family. I have never felt so loved in my life!

God loves you just as much!  That's the great news.  You can ask him to live in your heart & forgive you of your sins and you'll never be alone again.   

If you have questions or have a prayer request-leave a reply or send me an email. My God hears and answers every prayer. I'd be honored to pray with you.

In thinking about how could I represent a Redeemer who's alive? I chose butterflies in color. You'll notice I didn't color in all of them. Sometimes we don't "see" God in our lives-but he's there.  
 I started with plan white card stock. I stamped my butterflies using Tim Holtz Distress ink. I fussy cut the purple one & used a dimensional to make it pop.

 I want you to see this beautiful word art for yourself. You can print and use it for free @ Word Art Wednesday.
