Week 12: A Week of Reflection

This is our last week for the James GMG Book Club! I can’t believe how fast these past 12 weeks have gone! I hope you have learned and enjoyed it as much as I have! It’s been such a joy doing this study with each and everyone of you! I pray you have developed the discipline of spending time in God’s Word and making it a priority in your life! Please consider joining us this summer for the next Good Morning Girls book club! Courtney and I will announce it on Friday! CAN’T WAIT!!!!

Week 12 Challenge: As a group share with each other your response to the day’s assignment. For example on Monday share what your favorite verse in James was. On Tuesday share one thing that you learned about God etc. This will be a fun week of reflection!

Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

-James 2:15-17-

I’d also like to personally thank everyone who participated in The Mercy House Challenge and put James 2:17 into ACTION! Your contributions, big or small, are making a HUGE impact in those girls lives! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

This week instead of me making a video, Kristen from WeareTHATfamily and the incredible blogger behind The Mercy House, wanted to make a video and personally thank each of you for your contributions!

If your group hasn’t participated in The Mercy House Challenge and would like to, there is still time! You have from now until April 15th to do this GMG group challenge. Once your group has done the challenge, I’d like for you to either make a video that we can share on our GMG site or have someone in the group send an email to me at lovegodgreatly@gmail.com telling me how your group put God’s Words into action by helping the Mercy House. If you could attach a picture to the email that would be SUPER! I will then start sharing the videos and emails on our GMG as they come in!

Week 11: Learning to Pray Like Elijah

We’re heard there is power in prayer but do we really believe it? James points this week to Elijah as an example of how mightily God can use us if we earnestly pray to Him. Our prayers ignite God’s power in our lives! Don’t get discouraged if you don’t get an answer right away, KEEP PRAYING!!! Keep asking, seeking and knocking until you do get an answer from our Lord!!! Don’t forget what James says this week, “The prayer of a righteous man is POWERFUL and EFFECTIVE!” Claim that verse this week as you petition God!

Week 11 Challenge: Our challenge this week is to step out in faith and pray specific prayers…..just like Elijah did. Move beyond the umbrella prayers and start deepening your fellowship with God, stepping out in faith with your specific prayers. Remember what Jesus said in John 15:7 “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you.” Share your specific prayers with your GMG group and together pray for each other!!! Become neutron prayer warriors!!!

As always, we’ll be praying over you as you spend time reading God’s Word!

Week 10 What Are We Investing Our Money In?

Sweet friends, we are starting our LAST chapter of James this week! I can’t believe our James Book Club is almost done! I have so enjoyed going through James with each and everyone of you! This week we are going to focus on money and patience, two areas I’m sure many of us can always improve in.

Week 10 Challenge: As you start James chapter 5 this week, take time to evaluate how you are investing your money. Are you investing in material things that hold no heavenly value or are you investing in people’s lives and what will last for eternity? Have you given not just your heart, but your life-style over to God? I know these are tough questions. Discuss with your GMG group what, if any, changes God is laying upon your heart as you read James 5:1-12. Many times money is the final and hardest area of our lives to give over to God, ask Him to speak to you this week and help you be obedient to His Word.

Week 9 Our Lives Are A Vapor

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan today. My heart is breaking because of their loss, because of the pain they are going through. From one mom, sister, daughter, aunt and friend to another…..I hurt for them. This week in James we are reminded that our lives are “but a vapor”…….sadly this past weekend we saw the reality of James’s words. We all received a wake-up call….invest our lives wisely, make a difference today, no one is guaranteed tomorrow.

Week 9 Challenge: Mediate on every verse. Slow down, and listen. What is God speaking to you through these verses? Our lives are but a vapor. How can we maximize our time here? Is there something that God is wanting you to do? Is there something that God is wanting you to give up? Listen to Him. Pray. Dig deep this week. Seek Him and draw near. We are here on this earth for just a moment. What legacy is God wanting to leave through your life? What action steps do you need to take to begin that legacy? Share what God is speaking to you with your GMG group and together pray for each other. Pray and encourage each other to be obedient to God’s call on your lives.
