I would be lying to you and myself if I sat here and wrote some awesome words about something that really touched me through these two lessons. To be honest I didn't get much out of them. Maybe I missed something; maybe a small child running around distracted me! There... Continue reading

Just got to this lesson! Thanks for sharing Aunt Sammie! The church (court of praise) being a family has been a strong desire for me ever since God showed me the message that I preached! As I think about my own physical family, it’s not always roses and they are not always easy to work with but there is one thing about it, I KNOW that they have my back and that we have the same common goal! That is what I thought about while reading this last study. It may have been harder to work with swords and with only one hand but they had each other’s back. As a spiritual family we should fight for one another no matter how difficult or how hurt you have been. We should have each other’s back! No matter the attack!

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me!" Yea right! Whoever made that saying up is wrong wrong wrong! However, when words hurt us or we feel physical threats we do have someone to carry them to. This study reminded me of a time last... Continue reading

One relationship that will always mean something to me is the spiritual connection that Kaylor and I had dancing together. It was like we were called together at that time to Dance for him! I really can't explain the connection except that it was from God! I also think about starting a store with Alesha and how much I need her gifts. It really made me think when reading 1 Corinthians 1-11. I don't need to be jealous or want someone elses gift but use them when I need that gift. Maybe I'm not good at the gift of discerning Spirits (just an example)but when needed find someone who has the gift and use them. I'm not to pray for the gift or wish for the gift. I am to use others and their gifts. That is why we are all togther. That is the body of Christ!
Just finished this lesson and it stirred up so much in me that I really don't want to share right now! However one thing I do want to encourage everyone with is to not give up! Don't stop and give up on what God has called you to do. The world is looking at us and we need to continue to do what God has placed in our hearts. Luke 14:29 spoke volumes to me! Just because I feel defeated at times don't give others a reason to mock you! Continue laying your foundation!
I have been eating off of Sunday’s message all week. It was so fresh and refreshing! I have been pondering over the word that God gave Momma and Daddy through Aunt Betty. This spoke to me too. Put the things that God gives us in a basket and let it float and trust in him! Our callings, our jobs, our families, our business! Give it back to him and trust! So needed this!

I don't have much to write! Just wanted to say I'm here and that I'm doing the study! I do want to encourage people to share. God has given us things and carried us through things so that we can testify to others.
To be completely honest the calling that God has given me scares me. Each and every time I get a message or a word from God I am so scared to deliver it. How will people take it? Have I said and studied everything God wants me to? I am also afraid of how far God wants me to go with my calling and if I'm doing all that I can at this very moment. This is where praying and waiting comes in for me. I pray that God will show me when and how I'm supposed to fully walk in my calling. On the welfare of others, there has been many times that we have felt lead to take care of other’s needs. This is scary for us because very rarely do we have extra income in our home. However, we have never done without. God has always provided our needs!

I must say that I probably talk about my problems or things in life more to friends and family more than I run to God about them. I'm working on this. One thing that stood out to me through this lesson is how my knowledge of the Bible helps me to pray. So thankful that I have the bible that teaches me the promises and the authority I have in Christ. This makes prayer life easier for me!
I can honestly say that I have always been concerned with others and my heart does break for people. However it has been very hard for me to care for those that hurt me! I think that God gives us our church family and our spiritual friends for a reason. We should be able to be there for one another and never take each other’s relationships for granted!

I can honestly say that I would not choose my in-laws over my own family. Not that they are bad or that I don't get along but its hard to leave your own family. I think that this tells us what kind of person Ruth is. She was willing to move foward and keep her covenant with her mother-in-law. I must say that there are countless times that I have wept but still kept moving forward. I actualy believe I'm in one of those times now. I have been attacked, hurt, punched in the face (not really), and have wept but kept moving forward in everything that God has called me to. No matter the hurt I'm in God can't do anything If I'm not willing to move forward and change my atmosphere. Maybe Ruth just needed to change her atmosphere. The word hesed is something that I strive to do in my relationships. I can't say that I'm there but pray I can be. I want to have a love and a realtionship that causes me to act for the benefit of others and not myself. When thinking of this hesed relationship I can't help but think about Mrs. Paula and Mrs. Susan who fill in in the nursery any time they are asked so that I can benefit fromt the message. They give up thier wants a desires so that the rest of us can get fed.
