Words for the Soul ~ October 5

Just a thought as I continue to think about yesterday’s Bible Verse:

Identity is a tricky concept.

The dictionary lists two definitions:

  • 1. the fact of being who or what a person or thing is, such as “the identity of the owner”
    “he knows the identity of the students”
    ID= Identity
  • 2. a close similarity or affinity.
    “the initiative created an identity between the city and the suburbs”
    I personally do better when I keep my mind and my heart focused on who God says I am.

 

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.            ~2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Monday Event for the Soul: IF:Pray Tonight at 8:00pm est

If:Pray

What could happen if we came, all together, before God, to pray?

If:Pray #IFLEAD2015 is an authentic and community-driven movement to pray with one voice at the time in your timezone that matches 8:00pm Eastern time.

“We’re going to come together with our people, in our places, and we are going to pray- as a generation of women. Let’s humble ourselves and ask God to open our eyes to the places that He wants us to rebuild. We are going to beg Him to use it for His glory. Because like with Nehemiah, we believe that we can be a part of rebuilding all that is broken in this world.” from the  If:Pray website

Here is a map of existing IF:Pray gatherings. (Check it out) to see if there is one near you.
Also, an IF:Pray livestream on September 14 starting at 8:00 PM Eastern from the IF:Local Leader Gathering in Orlando, Florida is intended and available for women who are not close to an IF:Pray gathering or are with a handful of friends and want to be lead in prayer. To participate in the livestream, visit www.ifgathering.com on the night of the 14th. IF:Pray Livestream begins at 8:00 PM Eastern time. Sign up to get a reminder to tune into the livestream.

Monday Words for The Soul ~ August 24 ~ The 1 Thing Grace IS

GraceIsGodsBest

Been carrying this around and loving the sentiment more and more as I re-read.

The start of school has brought so many meetings with their emphasis on “benchmarks,” “goals,” “outcomes,” etc… In short, the emphasis is on what to do to earn promotion, tenure, an “A”, or the proverbial brash brass ring.  When I re-read the statement above in light of fluorescent glare of meetings I am so grateful that, because of grace, God is not in the continuing benchmark business!

What is our response? Praise Him. Love, Serve, and Tell others about the Gift (with a capital “g”) of Grace!

Because Jesus is humble, He calls us not to serve ourselves, nor live for selfish advancement. ~Os Hillman

Follow your passion. The rest will attend to itself. If I can do it, anybody can do it. It’s possible. And it’s your turn. So go for it. It’s never too late to become what you always wanted to be in the first place.

Here is a lived experience example of this quote in action:
