Can I say amazing!?!? Saying “good job girls” would be the understatement of the year! There should be no doubt in our minds after looking at these amazing visual testaments of His Word that He indeed binds up the brokenhearted and bandages our wounds! He heals us and because of His grace we can focus on the Healer  rather than the hurt. We may be broken for a time, but we are going to break through. Stressed Less Living is ours to have through the peace only He can bring.

Steph here again! I just want to say how much I am in love with all of the pictures you girls are sending! Seeing His Word and messages of love written on our arms reminded me of this verse from Song of Solomon…

“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire like a mighty flame.” Song of Solomon 8:6

Love stronger than death. Love that has overcome the grave. Love that heals the brokenhearted. Love that binds up wounds. Love that frees, stills our anxious hearts, and restores. I am simply in tears over the idea of His love placed so sweetly upon our hearts and our arms.

Today our assignment is to read Chapter 10, Broken for Breakthrough. Let me tell you, this chapter is powerful. So powerful, I need to share some of it right here just to make sure you don’t miss it!

If you are in a pit of stress or despair, don’t succumb to defeat. Don’t accept that difficult place as your fate. Even though God has allowed you to be there right now, he never intended for you to live there. Our God is bigger than whatever problem you are facing. The only way to see past the problem is to believe that he has not forgotten or abandoned you and that, at the exact time that he has ordained, he will reach down and pick you up….even if you have not been looking for him, he has been looking for you. (From Stressed Less Living Chapter 10)

Even when I was in a pit of depression. Even when I was angry about being raped as a teenager. Even when I was having panic attacks because I couldn’t achieve perfection…He was there. And when I finally chose to believe that He loved me and began to act “as if” His promises were true…I began to see the way out of the grave and move into true freedom in Christ. And the good news is this freedom is not just for one of us, or for a few of us, Christ’s freedom is available to all of us!

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Chapter 10. Read the chapter and be sure you take time to answer the questions at the end of the chapter. They are phenomenal and really help you personalize the material.

In the comment section, please share with us a call or dream you have on your heart that you have ignored. After you share, commit to pray for at least a week for God to show you direction (just the next small step). Also, commit to pray for the person who comments above you and leave them a few words of encouragement as part of your comment.  I can’t wait to see how God moves and gives each of us the strength to step out in faith as we find the breakthrough in our brokenness.

 

And don’t forget every time you comment you are entered to win this week’s suprise (and no I haven’t announced what it is yet but I will on Friday)!!!!
