HELLO LOVELIES!! It’s been yet another exciting and Looong week for me. How about you? This is week was very hard but I pushed through very nicely. This week during class was our week to listen. This week we were to sit back and relax and just LISTEN to what GOD has in store for our lives. I have to admit it was hard. We had to shut out that number one thing keeping us distracted from God and being close to him. My distraction was Social Media, so for a whole week I did not check any of my social media sites nor did I post anything. I have to say that was soooo hard-Because weather we realize it or not Social Media is the new age right now and it’s impossible not to be addicted? How many times a day do you check your Facebook? How many times do you check your Twitter per day? Even Instagram—Come on be honest. For me it’s every 5 minutes- Its bad I know.
Anyway, just like last week we had to meditate off 5 points and they were as follows.
Listening requires being still (Psalms 46:10)
Before moving you should seek God first by calling him and praying.
God speaks to us through his word, our thoughts, others, and circumstances. If you don’t hear from God, take a step, and if you don’t feel at peace, then step back.
Ask God for discernment (The Ability to Judge Well)
Remember that God is Sovereign let Him work.
Along with these 5 points we were asked some questions. Answer these in your own spare time or share with family or friends.
- Is there anything specific that you need to hear from God?
- What will you ask God to reveal?
- What time will you sit aside daily to meditate daily
- What’s your prayer?
We were also instructed to write down 3 blessings in our life and 3 things you would like to change about yourself?
My 3 Blessings Are…
- My 2 Daughters
- My Husband
- My Mother
3 Things I Would Like To Change about Myself
- To Open Up More(I tend to shut down on anything new)
- Be Confident
- Be More Of Myself
“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(NIV)
I do hope this renews your week and come back for Week 4 “Renewal”
