Permission to Say Yes

Hey Y’all!

Happy Sunday morning to you!  (or possibly Sunday night…Monday morning…depending on where you are!)

I just got out of church~ fabulous message from Pastor Steven Furtick at Elevation Church. Our current series is titled Permission Slip.

This is Your Permission Slip

A few notes I want to share:

“God, what do you want to say to me today?”

How long will you live in the past…stuck?

How long will you allow the imagination of what might have been go rob you of what is to come?

You have permission to bury a dream you’ve had SO THAT God’s dream in your life can happen.

Wisdom from failure. Move forward in faith.

Just because a dream dies doesn’t mean your hope has to.

No magic, quick fix. It’s a process.

You can have the promises of God (His Word is full of them) but you also have to pursue them. Otherwise they remain words on paper when they are indeed meant to be alive and active. God’s promises are your permission, but you have to pursue…move forward…believe and act.

When the enemy has stolen from you, draw your sword (Word of God) and fight back.

In most highly successful people, their greatest victory came exactly one step beyond their greatest defeat had taken over them.

Don’t quit.

When what you’ve done has brought pain and shame to you and those around you, what do you do?   Change your clothes.

What you did does not change who God is.

“I wish I hadn’t done those things, but I can’t stay sorry and in a pit of regret and shame forever.”

I believe the grace of God covers me. Because of this I can and will move on.

His robe of righteousness covers me…I’m changing clothes. Trading in my rags for his robe of righteousness.

What you did isn’t greater than who Christ is.

It’s time to go forward in the name of the Lord.

This is your permission to move forward.

God wants to fill you with fresh hope today.

 

Those are all the notes I took in church today! The message really spoke to me and I thought someone else might need to hear it too. If you’d like to listen to this message, visit Elevation Church online for information on this message and other powerful sermons too. (this particular message will be available in a few days on the Elevation site)

Just Say Yes

Anyone here saying “Yes to God?”  The latest Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study begins TODAY and it’s not too late to join. Check out our first post for the #YesToGod study here.   I’m leading this study along with my beautiful friend Nicki Koziarz. We’d love for everyone to join us!  We believe that these Online studies are backed by the power of God. We have almost 23,000 ladies from 120 countries around the world participating. Consider yourself invited. The study takes place on the Proverbs 31 website.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be redecorating soon so stay tuned as changes to this site begin to take place!

Have a wonderful day!

Love to You <3

Reminder To All My Blog Friends~ Yes to God

Hey Sweet Friends!  Hope you all are doing well today!

In case you are wondering what in the world is going on here at MelissaTaylor.org, here’s an update for you.

The What Happens When Women Say Yes to God OBS begins August 4th. This date is different than the original date. We moved it back to accommodate those still waiting on a book.

Our Online Bible Studies ministry has moved. We have a new awesome home!  It can be found on the Proverbs 31 Ministries website.

This site here, MelissaTaylor.org, will return to being just my personal blog. There are a few of you who remember when I used to blog. I’m really looking forward to it again!

If you have any questions, email angie@proverbs31.org.

For more information on the move, click here.

I’m so excited about all of our changes! Hope you will be joining 21,343 other women from 119 different countries as we say “Yes to God!”

Love you!  <3
