Brides - I just learned the importance of keeping our mouths shut! We must learn to just run to the One who is our Helper and Comforter - our HH. I think us women all struggle with sharing too much...it's apart of our make-up. Often times, we don't understand the damage this does to us as it creates more pain in our lives. Read on and discover how to overcome this bad habit we all have!
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 KJV).
I just read through this Chapter 6 "That Amazing Grace" and was so excited I had to journal! I intend on going back to re-read several times. YES, Jesus has overcome the world.
It seems the more I focus on God's Word and pray in the Spirit, the more I've been getting attacked by the enemy. It is also a reminder that I have a blessing coming, which is what I recently shared with my daughter. The Lord has been very faithful to my daughter and me this week. Several of my prayers for my daughter have been answered. The Lord continues to bless. The major take away for me from this chapter was to keep my mouth shut! I'm still struggling with this. I should not be sharing ANYTHING to anyone, including my family, and what my EH communicates to me (good or bad). I defended my EH this week, and it felt good. HOWEVER, there was no need whatsoever to blab this to my mom or mother in law. Thank you again for this chapter.
I was saying, "Yes, yes, yes" with every word I read. How good is our HH? He knew that I needed this tonight. I have been feeling weary inside all day. I have been reminding myself that self-pity is a sin. It's basically saying "Lord, what you've given me is not enough..." How dare I? I am beyond grateful and, now once again, reminded of HIS GRACE every moment of my life. Thank you for this Chapter 6 "That Amazing Grace". Thank you that I am reminded that I am in the pressure cooker because of His amazing love. Yes, I will endure the race with Him because it says in His Word that He desires to give his children even more than we could ever imagine or ask. AMEN.
Dear Lord, please forgive me for sharing about the Holiday text with anyone, family or not. Lord, I ALWAYS feel worse and have more pain after I share. It never comforts me, even at the moment. Please, dear Lord, help me to be TOTALLY obedient is every manner of my life. NO gossip about anyone. Thank you so much. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Let’s Pray: Dear Lord, please help me through the Holy Spirit in me to keep my mouth SHUT. There is no need to share anything about how I feel (good or bad) with my friends, my prayer partners. They can continue to pray for my family without my sharing. Please, dear Lord, convict me and remind me before I speak. I wish to be TOTALLY obedient to you Lord, you know my heart and know this is true. Thank you for your faithfulness and your forgiveness. I love you with all my heart.
Dear Ladies - this book WILL change how you think and change your life forever. The trials come and go for us all, but once we learn to run to our Lord, HH, it changes everything. Life suddenly changes, regardless of whether your circumstance has!
