everybodymattersBrake 5 Ladies!

This here is the 1st Small Group Online/Live or recorded that we will begin October 7th. We may be having others on other topics BUT for now we are only beginning with one. Read on your own and come back every 2 weeks and learn from open discussion amongst many women who are growing together.
This has been a mind transforming book for myself over the last few years and really teaches how to align our body, soul, and spirit man with God’s word and in living a healthy lifestyle.

Amazon shares:  “Few pastors or Christian writers have dared to approach the subject of how proper eating and an active lifestyle can affect how we serve God. Author Gary Thomas does just that. And he reaches all the way back to the apostle Paul, who wrote that we need to prime our bodies to become, “an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” To illustrate the body/soul correlation, Thomas presents engaging and diverse stories that include a young mom who got fit through volleyball and reaped spiritual rewards in her marriage, a 300-pound pastor who realized his obesity was eroding his ministry impact, and a woman who gained the spiritual strength to survive a contentious divorce by training for a marathon. In every instance, Thomas makes a direct connection between the physical challenge and its spiritual consequence. This book is a must read for anyone seeking new and compelling motivation for strengthening their bodies and fortifying their souls.”

What defines you . . .


Something I have learned over the years and want to share with those who are having a hard time grasping who they are in Christ. Circumstances, past experiences do NOT define who you are they only strengthen your character & relationship with Christ – that is if you run to Christ in the ‘good’ & ‘bad’ moments – meaning establish & build upon that relationship daily moment by moment. By walking in this principle, an individual creates a bond of trust with their Creator that increases their faith in all that Christ can do within the circumstance & the individual. Overtime this creates a lasting image of who Christ is & who the individual is in Christ. When we are able to speak in faith & declare to the ‘mountain of whatever’ the image of Christ is released – our identity in HIM begins to form. However, when we continue to allow the present circumstance to bully us, beat us up, cause doubt & confusion, we forget the person who Christ has made us to be. I encourage you to speak & declare who you are every day. Don’t allow your past, your present to dictate who you are or who you are becoming. Take some authority – walk in it – get mean with it – don’t allow it to be stolen anymore! Establish the image of Christ in your life . . . moment by moment. So that when something comes up – you are ready – feet planted, face set forward, unswayable, intolerable – the image of Christ starring down the enemy in waiting.

Undeniable Love


 

unconditionallovepic“Giving of ourselves first to our spouse 100% may be unheard of in today’s culture BUT in order to defy that culture we must create God’s Culture by allowing God to teach us to die to self. Walking in unconditional love towards our spouse begins by allowing the love of Christ to lead. It may not seem fair, it may feel like a sandpaper scream, and there may be a justified right, BUT walking in unconditional love towards our spouse creates a level of strength and trust in a marriage that when fear, intimidation, resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness come knocking on the heart’s door entrance will NOT be permitted. It’s called guarding what you have been gifted. Your spouse is a gift to you from God – someone to respect, to love, to cherish.  A gift given to create character and to teach us how to love the way Christ loves us.  Aren’t there times when we don’t deserve God’s grace, mercy, or love; but He never denies Himself to us.” ~ Jennifer Goodson Copyright © 2014.

Are We Sleepwalking? Part 3


Are We Sleepwalking?

PART THREE

When we are asleep we allow our souls to rule our emotions, to control our words, and our actions speak loud and clear what is deep on the inside of us that is not of God’s nature.  Our perspective rings true of something that is desolate, dry, and withering away.  
God is wanting us to awaken to His truth and light, His freedom and anointing power of well-being.  This begins in our thought process – we must begin by bringing every thought captive.  
Transitioning from slumber to being awaken to truth and freedom?
“When a set mind is imposed upon with a new belief, it is rather hard to accept, as it brings with it a fear of not knowing the outcome.  For some believe it is better for one to stay set in mind then to embrace the new to not continually compare their actions and live a life not trusting.  Truth is stepping out of the old into the new bringing life and freedom.  A chance to become someone better than one is.  A chance to reach higher than before.  A chance that takes one from a rigid plateau and forges onward to a new awakening.”  ~ Insightful Reflections of the Human Kind ~by Jennifer Goodson © 2012.  All Rights Reserved.
I encourage you to awaken your spirit man and take captive your mind.  Begin by thinking on the truths that God has spoken over your life.  Then, slowly set time aside to rest in the presence of the Father that He may speak to you and give you direction.  His desire for you is to be aware of Him at all times, in all areas of our lives for He has created us to be interwoven with His presence as He is interwoven with ours.  In this, we grow discovery Him in new ways.
Suggested Reading for further devotional time:
2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Philippians 4:8: Matthew 13:25; Psalm 73:20
