The Beauty of Jesus Revealed in the Feasts

If you missed any of the Rest and Release Bible Study , you can find ALL of the resources (including the videos) on one page – here.  My next Bible study will be announced mid-December. That Bible Study will begin in January 2018 – so please watch for those details coming soon!

But until then, if you are looking for a Bible Study to begin this month, then check out my friend’s newly released Bible study titled: The Beauty of Jesus Revealed in the Feasts.

Darlene from TimeWarpWife.com writes…

To understand the holy days is to appreciate and recognize the heart of God. In The Beauty of Jesus Revealed in the Feasts, we take an in-depth look at the holy feasts set forth by the Lord Himself. You might be learning all of this for the first time, or you may already know how the life of Jesus and future world events are clearly expressed in the feasts. In any case, there are new things to learn each time we open God’s Word.

Here’s a brief overview of the 7 feasts...

The 3 Qualities of a Woman Who Is Resting Well

A cell phone that is always on, will quickly drain.  Sometimes we are tempted to remain “on”, trying to get more done in a day or putting more on our plate than we should.

The end result: we feel drained.

We need rest.

Join me on today’s video,  as I discuss The 3 Qualities of a Woman Who is Resting Well.

Let God Restore Your Soul


He restores my soul.
Psalm 23:3

Resting is good.

Releasing is good.

Music and candles and flowers are good.

Sleeping is good and bubble baths are good.

BUT…if that is all we do and we miss connecting with God each day…

That is not good.

We may rest our body but it is God who restores our soul.

Did you used to have a fire and passion for God and then because of troubles and trials it fizzled? God wants to restore that fire in you.

In Psalm 23, we are reminded that the Lord is our shepherd. He is personal – He is YOURS! We can lie down in green pastures because he keeps us safe and secure. He leads us beside still waters so we don’t fall in. He restores and refreshes our soul.

Even though we walk through dark valleys, we do not have to fear – the shadows won’t hurt us. God is with us and guides us. He provides victory through our difficulties now and in the future.

Sometimes I don’t like God’s plans for me.

Sometimes I wonder why he doesn’t just fix...

I AM THANKFUL... ��I love the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends. ��I love the taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed. ��I love the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat. ��I love a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home. ��I love all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech. ��I love the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking. ��I love my huge heating bill because it means I am warm. ��I love the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I can hear. ��I love the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby. ��I love weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive. ��I love the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I'm alive! – Author Unknown ������I Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.” ������We have so much to be thankful for – sometimes we just need to adjust our perspective and open our eyes to all the many many blessings that we have been given – then our hearts will overflow with thanksgiving. ������What are you thankful for today? #givethanks #givethanksdaily #givethankstothelord #WomenLivingWell #GoodMorningGirls #scriptureoftheday
