+-*Train a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old, he will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6) I was raised as a Catholic. I went to Catholic school and learned the gospel of Jesus Christ: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts mostly. And some other really cool things like […]
+-*I’m not a mother. To my own children. But at least twice a week, AuntieMom (that’s me) is privileged to love on two nieces and a nephew. And by love on, I mean chase baby niece, paint masterpieces or create dolly dresses with le middle niece, and improvise when nephew runs the battery out of […]
+-*Hannah had issues. Although she was one of Elkanah’s two wives, and was loved dearly and treated well, she could not have children. To make matters worse, the other wife, Peninnah, taunted her mercilessly. I can imagine her talking to her BFF while walking through the marketplace: Hannah: Girl. I just can’t stand this. BFF: […]
+-*Forgiveness. We love to receive it, but sometimes it’s difficult to give it. Let me tell you something, I am so thankful to know that God is willing to forgive me on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. Every night I thank God for loving me throughout the day, bad attitude and all. And every morning […]
Before attending the program, I didn’t have a clear vision of how to grow in my walk with God. I knew God was calling me higher but I needed insight and wisdom to do what He was requiring. Then I was blessed to receive practical Bible based instruction, support, and steps to live out God’s plan for my life thanks to Girlfriends Pray Life Camp. I finally understand some of the ways I have been blocking God’s good plans for my life. My eyes and ears are now noticing how I spend my time, the clutter in my personal space and mind and if my thoughts and words line up.
The 7 Day Challenge could not have come at a better time. I have recently gone through the passing of many people I loved and I am retiring after 34 years of teaching. God ordered my steps when He led me to commit to doing the 7 Day Challenge. I received a gift with each call and each activity that held me accountable. I just signed up for the 7 Week Challenge. God has more for me and I am not going to miss it. I am willing to do the work. Then rest and trust Him to tell me what to do next. Thanks Dee.
I just wanted to share with you how much of a blessing this 7 Day Challenge has been for me. Yesterday’s lesson was for me! When Dee spoke about hoarding and specifically the examples of keeping old medicines, near empty lotion bottles in the medicine cabinet or mail piled on the kitchen table. Well, that was me! I never looked at it as hoarding, I really didn’t know why I kept the near empty lotion bottles, or travel toiletries from hotels. But yes…holding on to those things is fear, a mentality of scarcity. I rebuke that in the name of Jesus and I have cleared my space, I am getting my life and my environment in order. I am making room for God to bless me. Every day Dee has shared practical lessons that I can immediately apply to my life to make a change. This challenge is more than I could have hoped for and I thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am now a DOER!
After the Day 1 call the charge was on Thoughts: Philippians 4:8. I was going to work to meet with my boss regarding the disrespect of another staff member. Normally wearing my emotions on my sleeve, I would take you down the emotional lane about how it was not right and how disrespectful it was, but instead, I reflected on the scripture and the Day 1 charge. It was a real challenge for me, but a humble posture and a direct question gave me better results in the end.
I am so thankful for the reinforcement of “thoughts” and if you reflect on the will of God for your life true and honorable things will take place.
