Good Morning Girls – Week 1: Reflection

Loving Like Jesus 3D icon

It has been an amazing week…God has showed me allot in the GMG bible study this week. I was refreshed, enlighten and just so blessed by what my sisters shared with me as well. I had some things I was dealing with at the beginning of this week but by Friday God had totally did a work. when we are drawing closer to Him He is working in us.

The time we spend with Him should far exceed anything else we do. It should and needs to be our first priority. Now granted, I know us mommies have pressing issues like a hungry infant or toddlers. For me I have to carve out that time in the morning, even if it’s sacrificing extra time before they all wake up. It never fails, when I do that my day is blessed. And not to say it doesn’t have it’s trials, but I am less likely to act out in my flesh once I fill myself with Him.

This week I learned more about forgiveness, what faith looks like, how faith is cleansing, Jesus’ coming. Forgiveness I can honestly say is one I struggle with at times. Sometimes is easier, and sometimes it’s really not. I was reminded that forgiveness is best for me and those I love. Trials and offenses and anything else that causes you to have forgiveness towards another is part of our growth. It draws us closer to Him, it reminds us of what Jesus has done for us. It’s the least we could do in return. Forgiveness is humbling, it brings us to our knees. Forgiving grows us, it strengthens us, it’s all part of the pruning process.

I also wanted to share this video with you….it was funny I heard it this week and it was perfect.

This week I was reminded of my faith, and just having faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains. I had some mountains this week, and that small faith that I had removed them. God is good and He is faithful! Also I was reminded that we are to humble ourselves when serving God, and not accept an award, thank you or a pat on the back. I love what Matthew Henry’s commentary said

That, whatever we do in the service of Christ, we must be very humble, and not imagine that we can merit any favor at his hand, or claim it as a debt; even the apostles themselves, who did so much more for Christ than others, must not think that they had thereby made him their debtor. 1. We are all God’s servants (his apostles and ministers are in a special manner so), and, as servants, are bound to do all we can for his honor. Our whole strength and our whole time are to be employed for him; for we are not our own, nor at our own disposal, but at our Master’s. 2. As God’s servants, it becomes us to fill up our time with duty, and we have a variety of work appointed us to do; we ought to make the end of one service the beginning of another. The servant that has been ploughing, or feeding cattle, in the field, when he comes home at night has work to do still; he must wait at table.

Very humbling indeed. I was also reminded of remembering to always give thanks for the work or healing He has done in my life. I don’t want to be like one of the 10 lepers who did not return to thank Him for what He has done. 

I was also reminded of His coming, sometimes we can forget JESUS IS COMING and soon! I believe we are living in the Birth Pang stage of His return. There are so many warnings, are we listening to them? Or are the things of this world getting in the way. This was a great reminder for me, the verse that stood out to me was in Luke 17:37..
” Where will this happen, Lord?” the disciples asked. Jesus replied, ” Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.” 
It is near, all you have to do is turn on the news and see that those vultures are already gathering! 
May you have a blessed weekend!!
