There are so many events that are unfolding in today’s society, that have the ability to cause us to be fearful. Lone gunman walking into movie theaters opening fires, angry ex-employee’s taking out revenge on bosses, shake ups in our government that have caused the ugliness of th…e nation to rise up. We face so […]
What do you know how to do? What are you passionate about? Are you good at it? Know someone in the same field as you? Feel threatened? Well you shouldn’t! All of us have been giving gifts, talents and abilities that have the dual purpose of glorifying God and edifying each other. But too often […]
At the age of 17 Michael Smith was wrongly accused of second degree murder, and was sentenced to 15 years to life. While in prison he fervently fought for his freedom all the while maintaining his innocence. Then after 10 long years of fighting, appeals, prayers and waiting Michael got the break he needed. New […]
What if you have experienced more failures than successes, more losses than wins and had more fear than courage? As women, many of us face this reality. However, from the outside looking in, we seem strong and courageous; but to ourselves, we feel like a fraud or an imposter. We are often broken and confused. […]
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.
