Breaking Free has begun!

It is not too late to join us for Breaking Free on Wed nights.  We met last night with 17 present and 1 coming next week!  We would love to have you too!

This weekend is Jennifer Kennedy Dean live and in person at our church.  I can't wait.  She is an awesome speaker!  You can still sign up...just be there at 8:30 Saturday morning...$12 includes lunch :)

Pray for me as I travel to denmark this weekend.  I will miss y'all!  And please say an extra prayer for my friend Tammy...cancer stinks...I don't know any other way to say it.  Pray for God's healing if it is His Will and peace and guidance for the next few decisions she has to make over the course of the next weeks.

Stay in His Word!!!

This letter is from...

James,  a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I am writing to the 12 tribes, Jewish believers scatter abroad - Greetings!  Dear brother and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  (James 1:1-3, NLT)

Y'all will love this image.  This week a friend of mine and I started running at 5am again due to heat and night time baseball schedules.  If you have been a reader for any length of time (poor thing!), you know that I hate to get up early.  I mean I pure DESPISE it.  But I love to run, so it offsets I guess =)

Well this morning my friend surprised me...she brought memory verse cards!  You see we took the Beth Moore challenge to memorize the entire book of James in 5 months starting May 1st!  I had planned to get my cards together tonight...but let me tell you that it really passed the running time this morning!  Granted...I have a neighbor (or two) that now has confirmed my sanity level...

It was hilarious.  I giggled so much it slowed us down a tad...ha! 

If you aren't currently memorizing anything for eternity...join us in the challenge...James is an awesome book full of amazing advice and life lessons that apply today!

Well, I am off to read the rest of Judges for my daily reading...if you aren't currently using a daily Bible reading plan...join me in that too =)  You won't waste a minute on either of these tasks!

"A Forgetful Listener"

It seems I have been away from the blog world for ages!!! I have not followed a single blog since Nov and have barely updated mine. Life just keeps getting in the way. I had to re-prioritize a lot of things with my job change as well as my husband's job change...and on the web ranks where it belongs...dead last. I made several whole hearted attempts to get back to at least updating my blog...but as you notice...I failed...ha! I even thought a new background would keep me engaged. It didn't. But is raining, baseball is cancelled, and my next calendar item is an hour away! =) And boy do I have some things to share with the two of you if you still exist ;)

I am doing the Beth Moore - James Bible study. And it is really hurting my toes. Here are a few things that slapped my face and I would like to share with you so you can feel the pain...ha!

Paraphrasing from my notes...Being touched by God's Word and being CHANGED by God's Word are two entirely different things! You can cry all day over how a message or Scripture touched your heart but if you wipe away the tears and continue living life the might as well have saved the tissues. When you walk out the door and say "wow that was a great lesson" but are not changed by are in TROUBLE! You have become "a forgetful listener" read James 1:23-25.

Y'all, it occurred to me...I haven't been changing...I have become a forgetful listener. So I am crying out Lord help me! I have let the world and circumstance in the way...and I haven't been changed by God's Word lately. I let others misery and bad attitudes invade my space. And it has changed me...negatively. I have still been reading my daily Scripture and keeping up my Bible Study homework, but it has been part of my routine and not a step on your toes, hit your head experience. James got my toes and hit my head...all at the same time...and I am so grateful to God for His perfect timing. If I had done this study 2 months wouldn't have the impact it is having today. Amen anyone? It always works that way. I have always believed that timing is everything...and God's timing is perfect! to go...meeting coming soon...I am so is the planning meeting for the JBA WMU meeting May 19. Jennifer Kennedy Dean is speaking!!!!!!! SAVE THE DATE! Sign ups coming soon!

Go Bless someone...and if you don't mind pray for me to keep my toes sore and head swollen from the 2x4! Get in His Word won't waste a single minute!!!!

In Him,
Kristy =)
