Week 2 – Your Spiritual Life {Are You Too Busy for God?}

Intentionally Focused Week 2 Banner

Today I want to get serious about our walk with God.

Over at my blog we’ve been talking for the past two week’s about our daily quiet times, how the voice of social media gets in the way of listening to God’s voice, and how important it is to have community and accountability in our walk with God – but here – I want to go just one step deeper.

chapter 1 quote 3

What is it that we are focusing on?  What is our driving force?

“It is in the secret discipline of private prayer and meditation on God’s word that our roots grow deep into the rich soil of holiness.

But the reality is…holiness has never been the driving force of the majority.

We live in a culture where prayerless tweets and status updates fly through our fingers without a thought toward holiness.  The lines between principle and impulse have been blurred as information rapidly swirls like wind about us, moving us one direction and then the next.

All the information of every library in the world, we carry in our purses in the form of iPhones.  But most of the food for our minds found there is emptiness; emptiness served on a platter for our starved souls to feed on…If our roots are not deep into the rich soil of God’s Word, we will be swayed by the empty soul food we feed on. If holiness is not our driving force, we will be blown to and fro by the ways of the world and the emotions of our hearts.  Remember, holiness has never been the driving force of the majority.”
~excerpt from the book, Women Living Well

I’ve been told by many women over the years, the reason they miss their quiet times is because they are simply “too busy”...

I believe it goes a bit deeper than that.  Watch my video below to see what I think is the real problem.

Week 2 Challenge:

Open to Revelation Chapter 1 and read what John saw when he saw Jesus in all his glory.  When you close your eyes to pray – pause and imagine what John saw.  Then begin praying.  I believe it will change the power of your quiet times this week.

Week 7 Vlog- Learning About Wisdom & Peace

“The kind of wisdom a person possesses will be revealed by the kind of life she lives.”

– John MacArthur-



Proverbs 2:1-7

My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you,

So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding;

Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding,

If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures;

Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk uprightly.

If you’re like me…you can’t get enough wisdom! I think praying for wisdom in my life is one of my top 10 reoccurring prayer requests. This week we are going to learn about two types of wisdom, Godly wisdom vs. worldly wisdom. Which type of wisdom do you feel you are listening to right now in your life? By the end of the week you will be able to discern if the wisdom you are receiving is Godly or worldly by looking at the characteristics of each type. James is going to explain to us this week what wisdom looks like in action! I can’t wait to get started with you!

Week 7 Challenge: This week our challenge is to memorize James 3:17- the 8 traits of Godly wisdom. I’ve provided a print-out for you to download to help you look over and memorize this verse!
