It’s the only way to live.
That’s what I learned through our Proverbs 31 summer study……to live a life that is intentional and focused on Jesus.
(If you are reading this in an email or feed – click here to view the video)- Gotta love the still shot of this video…! Keeping me humble!!! Ha!
Today I’d like to share one of the many testimonies I received last week, testifying to the importance of getting up early to be in God’s Word and the difference it makes in your life, home and the attitude you have towards the people you love!
I found GMG last year, when you were mid-study, so a friend and I jumped in and began with the Prov. 31 book as our “test trial” to see if we could handle running a GMG group. (More specifically, if we could ever get off our poor habits and actually get up and read most mornings!!!!) It was a smashing success – we are totally addicted to God’s word in the mornings now, and we even have a few ladies who join us for all the studies now! We keep in touch via texting each day. I love that our group spans two different states and women from different seasons of my life whom I would never be able to meet with over coffee.
Here we are encouraging each other daily across the miles through GMG!
Through the Proverbs study I had my vision renewed on how to bless my husband in the little things. It’s not the big ones that “get me.” Praise God I am still seeing fruit from this study even months later - the Word is so powerful and active. It keeps coming back to me when I need the correction to stay on track.
The other thing I was challenged by – getting up early – most days – and jumping into the word first.
Otherwise it never happens. There were many more things, too – - oh, I think on praising God and loving my family through the “mundane tasks” ALL the time. It has infused my to-do list with joy and strength on many occasions. I always felt guilty about not “loving” parts of the housewife routine. This new perspective helped me realize not many love the task – - it is the people we serve THROUGH the tasks that we love.
My home is more and more comfortable and cozy as this new attitude develops in my heart – to protect our safe haven in what we call “home.”
Thank you everyone who makes this ministry possible! You are changing lives, by pointing us consistently to the One who changes our Hearts.
Thank YOU, Rebecca for sharing with our GMG community the power of being in God’s Word and how that affects all areas of our lives! I know your testimony has encouraged many women’s lives today!!!
