Can you believe we have come this far? Over the past 11 weeks, we have discovered the real problem (Week 1), decided if it really matters (Week 2), learned the side effects of stress (Week 3), realized that things need to change (Week 4), resolved to take our lives back (Week 5), realized we can’t do it alone (Week 6), learned how to not only face but to overcome our giants (Week 7), examined ourselves to determine if we are perhaps addicted to adrenaline (Week 8), learned how to arm ourselves with spiritual weapons (Week 9), and have learned that sometimes we come to the broken points in our lives so that we can recognize that we don’t have the control and turn to the one who does (last week). It has been an eye opening experience, but we aren’t done yet! This week we are pressing the reset button. Tracie Miles and Stephanie Raquel (our awesome guide this week) will lead us as we learn how to realign our lives, recognize our needs, adjust our focus, be filled with the Spirit, be faithful in our prayer lives and to truly believe God is who He says He is. That sounds like a lot, but we have been building up to this and we are sooooooo ready for it. So here is our line-up….
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. ~Romans 8:26 NIV
