Friday Encouragement

It has been a busy blessed week, at times I felt overwhelmed. I struggle some days finding balance with all that is on my plate. God is still speaking to me through knots, because I still haven't got it right, but I am a work in progress, not perfect! http://momlifetoday.com/2013/09/no-pretty-little-bow/

This week was our first offical Moms Connect!! What a blessing it was to see a group of moms come together. If you missed the first one, you are welcome to join us at anytime. Check us out here: http://www.firstmissionary.net/#/ministries/moms-connect

Have you thought about the use of your time? "God gives us our time to steward and use for his glory just as he does our money. Time is a resource and when we view it as something to use for God, it changes our perspective in how we use it. In fact, when we “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” then all the little distractions in our life lose their draw. Time wasters become less desirable. We become more conscious of how we are using each and every moment. Time, like money, can be invested in what is worthy or it can be consumed and wasted." http://toshowthemjesus.com/2013/09/16/when-i-give-god-my-time/

"No matter how long we’ve walked with Jesus, we all encounter new seasons of change." http://www.incourage.me/2011/09/the-new-you-why-kindergarten-isnt-just-for-kids.html

I taught my first week of yoga classes this week, and also a friend and I are doing a fitness challenge together. It has been fun checking in and encouraging one another, see more here: http://ajourney4life.blogspot.com/2013/09/living-and-active-challenge.html 
"Are you always running around, doing a million things at once? Multi tasking, being productive, and essentially being a wonder-woman! Warrior pose in yoga strengthens us as women. It reminds us to stand tall, reach up for God’s assistance, while using our entire bodies." http://rachaelleestroud.wordpress.com/raylee-yoga/


"Jesus said that we need to abide in him because apart from him, we can do nothing (John 15:5). Parenthood has revealed this truth to me in so many ways. I can do nothing apart from the gospel, including parenting. It may sound trite, but it’s true: I need the gospel more than I think I do — every single day." http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/we-really-need-the-gospel

What has God shared with you this week? How has He spoke with you? Give it some thought and write it down and if you feel like sharing, post a comment. Love to hear how God is speaking to you!

Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NIV)

Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
