Word Art Wednesday-Galatians 6:14

Happy Wednesday!

Thank you for stopping by for this week’s WORDart.  I hope you will take a moment or two to stop by the Word Art Wednesday challenge blog as well.  Even if you are not able to play along in the challenge, you will be uplifted by the cards and words of encouragement.

Galatians 6:14 WORDart by Karen for WAW personal use

I listen to a lot of Christian music and often that is what encourages and inspires me.  Quite often the simplest of things will trigger a song in my head and I will find myself singing it (most often in my head to spare those around me.)  When I read this verse the song Rescue by Newsong popped in my head.  The lyrics go like this:

You are the source of life
I can't be left behind
No one else will do
I will take hold of You


I need You Jesus, I need You Jesus
My heart is Yours for life

I need Your hand in mine
No one else will do
Lord I put my trust in You


chorus
I need You Jesus to come to my rescue
Where else can I go?
There's no other Name by which I am saved
Capture me with grace
I will follow You


My heart is Yours for life
I need Your hand in mine
No one else will do
Lord I put my trust in You


This world has nothing for me,
I will follow You.
This world has nothing for me,
I will follow You.

This world truly has nothing for me, and it must be crucified if I am going to live an overcoming life.  Crucifying the world (or our fleshly desires) is only possible by the grace of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for me that I might live a life of freedom in Him.  It is not His desire for me to be overcome by sin, worry, guilt, or the burdens that the world thrusts upon us.  He is my glory and my source of life! No one else will do!  I am so thankful for the name of Jesus that still saves today!

Thanks so much for sharing this today! I love to read the WAW posts even if I can't join in. All the scripture is so encouraging and this one is so convicting. To always keep in mind what is most important and to cling to what is true! Christ Jesus the Lord.
I love to sing to, but my kids are always asking me to stop! LOL
Have a beautiful day!
