Oh Holy Night

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend!
He knows our need—to our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His Gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His Name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy Name!
Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!

Accountability group?

We encourage you to talk/text/email with your accountability group once a week this month. If you need a group please let us know!!

  • Behavioral accountability is choosing to be honest with another person or group of people about our obvious habits or tendencies.  Do we overspend or blow our budget? Are we lazy at our jobs? Do we gossip or slander someone’s reputation? Do we lose our temper with our spouses or children? Are we addicted to anything? Is technology or work stealing attention from our families? Do we lack spiritual discipline? Do we neglect making opportunities to share our faith? Confessing these sorts of struggles is very important: it stops bad habits from festering into deeper issues. But it is only the beginning of helpful accountability.
  • Motivational accountability is choosing to be honest with another person or group of people about the desires and thoughts that truly drive and move us. This is about getting to the “sin beneath the sin.” It may not even be sin of which we are consciously aware, so we need another set of eyes to help us see what we cannot. Motivational accountability requires really knowing one another and asking the hard heart questions. Are we fascinated with Christ and the gospel? Do I find great joy in God? What do we desire more than anything else? What do we find ourselves daydreaming or fantasizing about? Do we covet anything? Do we think more about how we can serve ourselves or how we can boast in Christ and serve others? Are we holding on to bitterness? Where do our thoughts drift to when we enter social settings? Where do our thoughts take us when we are all alone? What lies do we believe that continually drive us to disobey God? Do we love anything more than God?
We would love to hear how your groups are doing!!

Costume Zumba is 29 this month. Start planning what you are going to wear. We will have drawings for prizes for everyone that participates!!

The Aroma….

Think of it now… cookies baking fresh flowers clean laundry out of the dryer the beach All of these things bring to mind things that have a definite smell. And not just any smell, but one that we like, one that we experience, one that we can recognize without even seeing it. This, ladies, is how we are to be to the world! We are to radiate Christ through ourselves that everyone can see Him living in us. We are to transform the very air we live in because He lives in us. Please try to remember this as you go about your day. We can help people see Jesus living in us by: giving someone a drink of water on a hot day, sponsoring a child in a destitute land, teaching a Sunday School class, donating our time to help at a food bank, opening a door for someone and smiling at them (and maybe even talking to them). Let's be the fragrance of a merciful God, a loving God, a compassionate God to this lost world! 2 Corinthians 2:14New International Version (NIV) 14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.

God's Great Mercy and Our New Birth

( Here is a great sermon from John Piper on our verse this month. You can listen to it at the top of the page on the website link above. Thought it was very fitting for Easter. Please let us know if you need a place to worship this Easter (Saturday night at 6 or Sunday morning) we would love to have you.

Loving ourselves!!

So as women, we are sometimes (almost all the time) putting others before ourselves. Caring for our kids, spouse (or boyfriend), family, job, volunteering…the list can go on and on! A lot of times by putting these other people and things above ourselves can wear us out! This month our focus is going to be loving ourselves! This is going to look different to each lady that comes, but overall the purpose is going to be the same! We are going to be positive about our images, our talents and abilities, our intelligence. You get the idea? This month, any negative thought is going to be pushed away from our initial thoughts. This is going to take time and practice but I know we can do it. Our challenge this month will not cost you time in any way. It is all about our thoughts…especially about ourselves. We are going to remember that we are created in God's image and HE doesn't create anything wrong. Although we might not look like the model on the magazine or we might not sing like the people on the radio, God made us and we are GOING to thank Him for that and we are going to look at the good things he gives us each day. That is the challenge. Do you accept? Can you stop putting yourself down and instead thank God for not making you wrong? Because He didn't! You are perfect just the way you are!! Who's in? I love when you tell us that you finished your challenge for the day. Tell us on FB or email us each day when you finish. We can change our mindset! We can encourage each other and be accountable to each other. Who's in?? We love y'all!!

What is best for us??

Philippians 1:9-10New International Version (NIV) 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, So I'm reading this new book to go with a Bible study I do with my awesome coworkers called The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst. Here is a link for more info on the book/study and you can read chapter one ( I'm learning how (with my own type A personality) that it is not always in the best interest of me or others to say yes when asked to do things. I think I have always been in the mindset of if someone asked me to do it and I feel like I can do a good job then I should say "yes" to whatever. This book is really teaching me about taking time to really pray about each decision I make and really weigh my schedule and my emotions with my answer. As I get busier and busier this can be a blessing and a curse! I am someone who loves to be busy and I love to do things myself…really I think it is that I don't trust that others will do things the way that I think they should be done…but anyway, I needed to hear to stop and really pray and evaluate the situation. I really want to be able to discern what is best for me and my family and my time. I don't get tomorrow back, so I have to be cautious about how I use my day and I also want to glorify God in everything I do. I want to have a positive attitude with my child and if I'm too tired from staying up making cookies for school when I should have gone to bed so that I'd be in a better mood and have more sweet words for him than bitter ones, then I probably should have said no to something in my day. Or if I say yes to helping someone when emotionally I need to be filled myself, I could be taking a blessing away from someone else who could have helped my friend when I just needed some grace myself. How many of us are like this!!?? I for one have really enjoyed this book…although sometimes it feels like ripping off the bandaid. I want my "yes" to mean that I can put 100% in and have a good attitude and not take away from my family and others. It is hard but I feel like I'm learning, step by step, to use my best "yes."
