RFW:The Secret

Resolution for Women: The Secret

A woman of contentment is aware of her needs and what God has already supplied to meet them. Begin your journey to contentment by making a list. Label one side “My Needs.” Label the other “God’s Provision.” Then match up your needs with the way God is currently meeting them. Place your list in a handy place for the times you are tempted to lean toward dissatisfaction.

My Needs -->God’s Provision
To have a career that matters-->He led me back to school to become a teacher
To have a support system -->Introduction of new friends and reconnect with old friends
To be loved and supported -->Given me a wonderful husband and family
To be challenged spiritually -->Re-kindled a fire in my soul to know God better
To have financial security--> Provided me and Kyle with stable working environments

What might God be trying to grow in your character or cement in your relationship with Him by keeping you separated from some of the things you want but don’t yet have?

I believe that God may be trying to grow my faith and dependency on Him. I believe He also wants to teach me that He is in control, and His ways are better than my ways. Whatever He is denying me, He will use it to bring glory and honor to His name. Because, He is a good God, even when He is saying “no” or “not now.

Please stay tuned. I have a review/giveaway that I will post this weekend from Daysprings!

There is a song we hear at church sometimes that says
e"You never pray a prayer, your Father will not answer
He can't ignore His child's earnest request
While you're waiting and believing
For what you thought was best
Trust God if He says no….. You're still Blessed
There must be a greater yes" That's what I was reminded of when I did this lesson. You and Thomas have to go see the movie Courageous!!! Its so awesome!

I began blogging several years ago in search of new friends who, like me, were having a difficult time getting pregnant. Five years, 2 miscarriages, 4 failed IUI's, and a doctor who told us "It will never happen" later, we are the proud parents of Kade and Kohen. They are each an example of God's absolute perfection. We thank God where medical intervention stops, Divine intervention begins.
