Surrender Class-Week 2-Listening

Listen to yourself and in that quietude, you might hear the voice of God~Maya Angelou

 

HELLO LOVELIES!! I am so sorry-I’ve been a little backwards this week and i’m sorry for not getting all this goodness out sooner. Week 2 of my 4 week class at Concord Dallas, Consisted of Listening. Listening requires being still(Psalms 46:10. Before moving we should seek God by calling on him and praying. God speaks to us through his word, our thoughts, through others, and circumstances. If you don’t hear from God, take a step; and if you don’t fell at peace, then step back. Ask God for discernment(The ability to judge well). Remember that God is sovereign. Let Him Work.

I believe that is a lot of whats wrong with our society today and me. If we just still back and be still and let Him guide us–Then the rest will Follow. I find that very difficult for me as i am trying to achieve everything on my own and always to stubborn to ask for help. But GOD ain’t done with me yet!

There were a series of questions along with this lesson.

  1. Is there anything specific that you need to hear from GOD on?
  2. What will you ask God to reveal?
  3. What time will you sit aside to meditate daily?
  4. What’s Your Prayer?

My answers to the above questions.

  1. I need to hear GOD that its okay to mess up and what is my purpose.
  2. I have asked GOD my true-self and reveal the mentioned above.
  3. 10 pm(I know its late but i get off from my corporate job so late)
  4. My prayer is to stop and listen and let GOD lead.

I do hope week 2 class has served you well.

Included in week 2 at your Leisure, Write down 3 blessings in your life and 3 things you would like to change about yourself.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and i in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain  in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”-John 15:5-7

 

The Ultimate Date Night Guide

Hello Lovelies!

Valentine’s date night doesn’t  have to be extreme or fancy. Share the love with these simple but yet romantic date night ideas that could go beyond just Valentine’s Day.

Some are simple as just going out to eat or if your a family of 4 like me taking time off to enjoy the day for yourselves while the kiddos are in school.

Eat In. Avoid the crowd of a restaurant and pick up your favorite dinner to go.

Relax together. Book a day at the spa or better yet arrange a day at home or at a hotel and give each other massage’s and enjoy the outcome after that.

Fun In The Sun. Remember back in the day when you’d go on a date and they would take you out on a little drive-Find a cozy spot to watch the Sunrise-Its a great excuse to cuddle up with your valentine.

Get Cultural. Break free and go to a museum or art gallery.It can spark interesting conversation and reveal more about you and your mate on how they see the world.

Spark It Up. Make sure the kiddos(if any) are in the bed or at least at a sitter while you wear something new to bed.(No Flannel!!!)

Go to the movies. A good’ol’fashion movie never fails.

Keep it light. No serious discussions about finances, kids, or criticisms.

Go Bowling. Challenge a game between you and your mate. Make It Fun!

Paintball. Rough it up for your mated and find a local paintball field and be loose.

Comedy Club. Enjoy each other with a few laughs.(Me and My Hubby Love The Improv-Check Your Local City For One)

Go Dancing. Find a local swing club or lounge and walk-it-out!

Have a board game night. Choose your favorite board game and play the traditional way or throw in a romantic twist.

Set The Mood. For this you will want the kiddos gone. Think candles. Think flowers. Recreate your own fine dining centered around your dining room.

Last Minute Stay-cation. Book a nice hotel in your local area and just relax. Just the two of ya’ll.

Do Something Adventurous. Skydiving(so not me) Bungee Jumping. Rock Climbing. Anything out of the Norm.

Take A Cooking Class. Do you love to cook? Explore gourmet goodies or take a local cooking class together.

Runaway. Plan a daring getaway just the two of you, No cell phones, No contact form others(unless you have kids-but hopefully they’ll be at a secure place).

DIY paint night. Are you creative? Do you love the arts? Make it a paint night.

Pack a Picnic. Make is simple and thoughtful. You don’t necessarily have to go to a park-Spread a blanket on the living room floor and enjoy some fun homemade treats.

 

These are just a few ideas compared to the 100’s that are out there that you can do. What did you and your mate do for Valentine? Be sure to post below!

XOXO

Verse Of The Day- Colossians 3:17

Hello Lovelies! Do everything with sincerity. Do everything in the eyes of GOD and you will never have to worry. I often have to come this when i am in doubt. When i am not sure if my actions are of God or of flesh. I am learning each and everyday to walk in Jesus and by Grace i will get there. I write this to say, Whatever your intentions are-Take it to Jesus and ensure they are pure and true.

 I hope your day was as awesome as mine and sorry for the LATE post. I promise i will get better

 Talk Soon. Drop Me A Comment.

The Narrow Road

 

HEY LOVELIES! How is your week going so

far? Its been a little rough for me due to all this changing weather. My sinuses have been in full force! I just want to shoot to you my devotional. GOD is truly guiding me and working on my path and want you to GROW with me as well. Spiritual growth takes place when we turn from our sins and turn toward the new life GOD has for us.When enough is enough then we must ask GOD to redeem our lives. The path to Christ is not easy and calls for us to follow a narrow and sometimes difficult path. Jesus said,” Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it”(Matthew 7: 13-14) We all have our own path we choose to live but without GOD it can be a LOOONG narrow adventure. When we realize the possibilities of the wonderful life here and in eternity that GOD has called us to, we will eagerly ask him to transform our lives and make us living testimonies to his grace.

BE BLESSED
