is our MCNRC bible study by “WOMEN OF FAITH-STUDY GUIDE SERIES” that we began 6-7 weeks ago.
WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! We finally met and completed lesson #4 at Panera Bread this morning, Saturday, 11/7/15. I was struck DEEPLY, RIGHT through my heart, by some bullet points from today’s lesson, titled “Encouraging Growth”.
I struggle, folks. God’s word is not ALWAYS clear to me. “HELPING” teammates to grow, spiritually, behooves me. I am, however, stumbling to find the “RIGHT” approach. I STILL get a bit “passionate,” during verbal attempts at “HELPING” to guide mates the right direction when it is apparent they have drifted off course.
Knowing what, when and how to say what needs to be said in tense moments is a skill I continue harvesting. “Tact” is not a forte of mine. I am too direct. I heard myself professing to teammates that the words I was about to speak were NOT meant to be hurtful. :/ Is that corny??? “THAT”…is where I found myself along “MY” JOURNEY this past week, folks!!! I will keep moving forward, however, knowing that God will guide my steps with His loving encouragement.
WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! “This” week’s trinket for the treasure chest = KERNELS OF CORN. Hhhmmm…“kernels of corn,” indicative of God’s encouragement to guide His followers as a metaphor of coaxing a chicken to follow a specific path by dropping kernels of corn along the desired path as encouragement…to “WALK THIS WAY” (song by Aerosmith) 😉 We have decided…to follow Jesus. No turning back. No turning back. :/ Sorry. We have decided to provide scripture laced containers of popcorn and candy corn for ALL teammates on the “SHARING TABLE” in our documentation room at work on Monday, 11/9/15. SHARING…is CARING, right??? DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
