Hey Y’all! Hope your week has gotten off to a great start.
Are you believing that you were MADE FOR MORE? I happen to know that some of you are and there are many of you who are struggling also. Let me speak to the strugglers.
I know some of you are feeling a little discouraged. If this is you, let me tell you what I told the ladies on the conference call last night.
~“Anytime God starts a movement, the enemy starts opposition.” ~Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still
~“The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” ~ Jesus, John 10:10
So basically, find some comfort in your struggles. We have an enemy who does not want you to succeed and will use your weaknesses and thoughts to bring you down. That is not the voice of God. Because you are striving to find your identity in Christ alone, to meet your needs with God and not __________, you will encounter opposition. I want to encourage you to hang on, don’t quit, don’t give up. We got this! Why? Because we have God Almighty on our side. Do not allow a setback, a relapse, a person, your health, failure, your past, being behind in this study, doubt, discouragement, or any other obstacle keep you from believing that this time is different. Talk to Jesus often. Go to the Verses by Chapter on p. 195 and the Healthy Eating Go-To Scripts on p. 215 of MTC. Pray. Ask someone to pray for you, with you. Comment here on this blog. There has been so much encouragement here, I love that.
How are you doing?
If you are down, just don’t stay there. No pity parties! “Turn your pity into purpose.” ~ Lysa TerKeurst
If you are feeling amazing, share the love sistas! Encourage the rest of us.
One more thing. I have a devotion running on Proverbs31.org tomorrow and right here on this blog I’ll be introducing our next study, An Untroubled Heart by Micca Campbell and giving away a copy of the book. The message in our next study is replacing our fear with faith. Sign ups for An Untroubled Heart will begin soon.
Ok, that’s it for now! Thank you for doing Bible study with me! I love our “group”….all 8900 of us!
