I’d like to get a bit of a pulse on where each of you are as we look out over a new year together.
- What kinds of things do you desire to learn about God?
- How do you most long to grow spiritually in Christ?
- What kinds of topics about relationships would be most helpful to you?
- Are there any stumbling blocks in your life that you would like for us to talk about – how we can have victory over those specific temptations and trials?
I’d love to hear from you about what kinds of topics would be the greatest blessing to you in your walk with Jesus and the things you are praying for this year.
Also – if any of you feel led by God to share something He has shown you that is a spiritual treasure in your life – please let me know! I’d be glad to consider your story for a post.
I lift up thanksgiving and praise to You for each woman here. I thank You for Your goodness and that You have made all of Your goodness available to us through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross on our behalf. Open our eyes to the abundant Life You have provided for us! Let us taste and see that You are good. Increase our faith mightily! Help us to tear out every doubt and sin that would entangle and ensnare us. Let us build our lives fearlessly and joyfully on the truth of Your Word and on Jesus. Let us willingly surrender everything to You. We seek only Your will – all of Your will – and nothing but Your will for 2017 and for the rest of our lives. Let this be a place of great spiritual growth, fellowship, and blessing to all who come to drink here from Your goodness. Empower us to become the women You call us to be. Let us rise – by Your Spirit’s power – to become a holy generation, pleasing in Your sight. Use us to pour out Your love and light in a land of great darkness, fear, and hopelessness. Use us to set the prisoners free by sharing Your good news!
In the Name and power of Christ,
Much love and may God richly bless your walk with Him and all of your relationships for His greatest glory!
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
