A Personal Message from Author, Glynnis Whitwer
Hey! Happy Memorial Day to you! To all of you who are serving, have served, or are friends or family of someone serving or has served in our armed forces, I am so thankful for you! I am so thankful for those who have fought for our freedom.
If you are visiting from Glynnis Whitwer’s devotion on Encouragement for Today, welcome! We are getting ready to begin our summer online Bible study in exactly a week! If you haven’t signed up, it’s not too late! All you need is a copy of the book, I Used to Be So Organized, by Glynnis Whitwer and internet access. The study takes place here! We will be uncluttering our homes, lives, and minds. It’s going to be fun, practical, and Biblical. I would love for you to join us!
Glynnis is so excited about us studying her book here online. Read a message she has just for you below.
I’m delighted to welcome you to Melissa’s next study using my book, “I Used to Be So Organized.” Thank you for investing part of your next nine weeks with us. We trust that the Lord has something amazing planned for you.
Each week you’ll hear from Melissa as she guides you through the chapters of my book. And on Friday, she’ll direct you to my blog, where I’ll step in with a practical application of the theme for the week, and some weekend “home” work. I promise it will be fun and easy to accomplish.
But before we get started I want to share a short message. If you are starting this study feeling overwhelmed, I want to begin with some encouragement and sisterly advice. First, be open to whatever God wants to do in your life through this study. I find that God and I often have different goals. I may want to get my house in order, and He may want to get my heart in order. I’m learning to hold my goals with open hands rather than clinched fists.
Second, remember even small steps forward are worth celebrating. Too many of us are perfectionists, and end up being our own worst enemies. So don’t be discouraged if it takes longer than you wish to get your schedule or home back in order. There’s no deadline for this. Just make one change at a time. And Melissa and I will be on the sidelines cheering you on
Thank you again for participating in this study. I’ll be praying weekly for you, and would love to hear your thoughts on my book, and how God is using it in your life. So please stop by my blog and post a comment when you think about it.
Grace & Peace,
If you haven’t already, sign up for this Bible study in the right column of this page. We can spend the next nine weeks growing closer to God while getting our lives in better order, and making some friends along the way.
Thanks for stopping by today. Just so you know, I don’t consider this page just a blog, but I consider it a gathering place of friends. Please leave me a comment and introduce yourself.
