Today many welcomed summer as kids ran out the school front doors!
I had swarms of kids over, wet towels from the pool, food and the common phrase said over and over, “do not run in and out please.”
Summer can add more stress lets be honest!
So I want to offer you a great set of devotionals to keep you focused and filled with positive hope and joy!
Click the link below and join me this summer for a 25 day mini devotional using my published RUN study. I pray this will keep you renewed and ready to Run your best race this summer. We all have challenges that keep us preoccupied and overwhelmed. I pray this is a blessing for you!
Also Take a peak below at My SUMMER BUCKET LIST!
Start your summer off with a bucket list, get a poster board and make your list with the kids this week. I also suggest you make one for yourself.
MINI SUMMER DEVOTIONAL JUST FOR YOU!
Navigating through seasons in life can be difficult. The one thing that I learned in those times was how to really grab and grasp onto truth.
Learning truth has a system or lets say rhythm of how it needs to get down in our hearts. I love today’s podcast because it’s a great visual that you can keep in mind when you are in a season and just feel stuck.
When I was going through marriage difficulties as a young mom and wife this really helped. When I was trying to let go of my past and the shame of my past awful mistakes this helped me gain the freedom Christ came to give us.
Satan is ready every morning with a new set of punches. This tool will have you swinging back in no time!
Yesterday we ended a 10 week study with my recently published book study, Run.
We had a total of 80 amazing women involved. Last night we gave the opportunity for women to SHARE what kind of pearl they received from this study or just the opportunity to share their story!
On page 66 of the RUN study we where taught that to see and understand God’s glory in our life we must be positioned so that we are ready and He alone is in the line of sight. This study teaches an individual how to Run in such a way so they may WIN!
The key is how we position ourselves during the week to train to run!
A physical runner is rooted in discipline and a spiritual women also needs to be rooted and grounded in her faith run.
Women from all walks of life stood up last night to share what their GOD has done. Wow! in the midst of clouds and fog God appeared in their valleys. Many that fell out of their race got back up and ran these past 10 weeks.
Many learned these past 10 weeks that to be rooted in their race and firm in their faith demanded a little work. Its not for the LAZY.
Everybody is going through something and during this study ladies realized they can achieve new goals and dreams. Many recognized that when we run with God we achieve much more then what we set out to accomplish on our own. God knows your need He will bless those rooted and grounded in their faith. What does that look like for you?
Let me share briefly what I saw and heard last night
Ladies from all walks of life declared what God has done in their lives. Many even stated that they tried everything else.
A beautiful lady shared her story of abuse, addiction and a brain tumor. One blow after another. We where reminded in this study that God positions other runners or may I say angels all around us. She shared how God had brought her through each time. She also said the only way she got away from her addictions was her faithfulness to working at being grounded and rooted in the faith.
A physicist from UofM shared her story of desiring to understand Gods timing and purpose for her life. A physicist is one who studies matter, space, time and energy. Imagine that, she was a student of the word and never missed a class. Bottom line she knows God has amazing dreams for her and she is learning to rest in HIS anointed energy. That was a powerful story to hear from someone that has to have it all figured and tested out.
I listened to 3 sisters declare that their family has tried everything and nothing has worked. The family is falling apart, mom and dad divorcing and everyone overwhelmed. Yet, one sister chose to be rooted and grounded in the faith which made many question her peace in the midst of the mess. The father and sisters have began to turn toward faith. See what happens when one positions themselves within the family? God uses that one!
I sat next to a women who is currently raising her 2 teenager boys on her own. Her husband took his life and she felt that was the end of the story. Yet her faith because she has stayed rooted and grounded even on the weakest days, God has reminded her this is not the end of the story. Many times we get angry at God and that is ok. The key is she remained rooted and grounded daily and God will take care of us even when we’re angry. Her story can be found on page 221 in the Run study. This is a faith jolter for sure!
Each lady that shared had an irritant in her life. Did you know a pearl is formed from an irritant? We need to grab the pearls of truth from our faith and let that create a pearl in our situation. Another great lesson tucked in session 6 of the Run study.
Ladies continued to share their pearls throughout the night. Some very tough stories mixed in with many stories of average ladies just craving to know God better and see Him in their lives.
So many good things come out of tragedy and hardship but we need to take the time to get to get to our mountain top so we can study, grow and just listen. The more we study and open our mind to this the more magic takes place. Remember God is the ultimate physicist!
How are you currently learning to stay rooted and grounded in faith?
This may sound silly or a joke to many but I am here to tell you that this is the one important question you need to ask.
I have met the single mom, the lady suffering with addiction, the one with cancer, the lady going through the divorce, the sweet lady that was abused as a child, the one with the rough family upbringing and the list goes on. THE ONE thing they all had in common was a real God was working on their behalf and changing their stories because they put forth an effort even when tired to stay rooted and grounded in the faith.
You can change the ending of your story, I sure did!
Just like training to Run, we train ourselves to be rooted and built up in the faith.
Colossians 2:7 “rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith”
Strike your roots deeper and deeper in the faith!
Thanks for letting me encourage and motive you!
Please join me on You Tube , my faith based messages will help your roots go deeper! Focused faith brings a focused, fun life.
COMMITMENT DETERMINES OUR DIRECTION IN LIFE!
I just heard today that successful people are committed to a few GOOD routines every single day!
My word for 2016 is HABIT. So with that in mind I am studying all kinds of information on the importance of habits.
I cannot believe how many successful people have habits. All being very unique.
We learned in previous videos that a TENACIOUS spirit means that one is driven toward a goal!
In today’s teaching lesson we will look a DANIEL in the bible. He was very tenacious and we can learn from him.
Listen today as we look deeply together into Daniels life!
How strong and committed are you to your faith and goals?
You can do this!
Tenacity is determination to stay driven to do or achieve something. I call it the grown up redfined cousin of stubborness!
Hebrews 12:2 teaches us to keep our EYES FIXED on JESUS the author and finisher of our faith! I like the phrase FIXED ON! That demonstrates a very driven focused behavior. We need to stay driven in our faith during the setbacks in life.
Every day we take a tenacity step!
Pages 81-116 in the RUN workbook you will find lessons packed to increase your tenacity.
God wants us to work in the super natural and push toward Holy Determination on a daily basis!
I pray today’s lesson is a blessing. If you grab the run workbook and work through the lessons and want more help please consider connecting with me on my coaching link!
