**Good morning sisters...
no verse chosen for today...I will read back later and enjoy the ones you choose
Annette: good question...when does God want us to stay clear? All I can say is keep praying and if you do go...give your self the option to leave if it turns really sour...About the goals...I would say Satan is trying to undermine your good choices..
I think it is fine to make goals and then take steps to accomplish them...I keep going back to that side walk poem for a while ago. Goals have to be realistic and we have to take steps to accomplish them...including back up plans. (ex: my goal today is to eat what I bring and nothing else...so I made a huge veggie plate and I know I can munch on that instead of anything else) The Lord is my strength and my shield! So true...now with goals we have to make them and then advance behind our shields! Not always easy.
Erika: I love it! We should rename the thread! Maybe even create a whole new group. Sometimes I look at the 300+ plus members and think we should re-create...COFFEE CLUB PRAYER TIME...I LOVE IT!
I love your advice on goals...so true...I can do all things through HIm who strengthens me! yes ma'am! stupid, stupid flesh...always derouting us.
Love this too: Show us what is repent-able and what is repairable, and help us quiet our noisy hearts so we can hear you speak. We need your presence so much, much more than we need circumstances and people to change.
Steph: busy weekend?
Lord, thank you for this group. I really would like to rename and re-group. Father, you have given us something powerful here...children, connected to you, who pray for one another.Please bless and protect this little group Lord, direct our steps and take care of us. We want to follow you and seek your will in every situation. It's not easy, but it's not impossible either. Thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to help and guide...let us be attentive to that still small voice.
Off to church soon...have a great one sisters! You three mean a lot to me
Victory = series of right choices....
Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!
God bless you and yours!
