A four letter word.

A four letter word.  A teeny tiny four letter word.  Fear.

I found this photo I took years ago just recently.  The find came at the perfect time.  So appropriate for this week.  We just completed week 4 of the Good Morning Girls bible study.

Wow…4 weeks.

These 4 weeks went by so quickly that I can hardly believe it. Week one brought a ton of emotions.  I was nervous that I wouldn’t have any time at all to even complete this now I’m looking forward to it on a daily basis. I’m finishing it before anything else, early in the morning before my kids are up.  Something I’ve wanted to do for a while. This study helped me make that happen!

This little word tries to hold me back. A small four letter word.  Fear.

It didn’t hold me back from this. I’m looking forward to even more adventures now that I’m staring fear in the face and walking the other way.

Ladder to growth.

Am I extraordinary? Am I a woman of character? Am I a priceless jewel to my husband?

Midway through the second week of the learning about the Proverbs 31 woman and this woman is so far up on a pedestal I may never reach but I’m creeping up on her.  I’m on rung two of this journey and learning that this woman is astounding!  Will I ever be so noble, so rare?   Many of us already ‘know’ about the Proverbs 31 woman. By that I mean we’ve probably heard of her but have we studied intently about her to promote change within?  To be completely transparent, I honestly have not.

I am loving every minute this study. I’m struggling less and less to find the time during my already busy day to make this happen.  I’m making the time! It’s true that when you truly have the desire you find the time.  The deeper we delve into learning about her the more I want to know, the more more questions I have.  Creating a hunger for the Word with a group of Godly women is something I have craved for a while now.

Are you craving too? Are you looking to work on yourself, change your life? Are you looking to become a better wife, daughter, sister, mom, friend?

It is not too late to get started. It’s a 3-month journey up this ladder and we’re only at rung number two.

If you are reading this and feeling a nudge or feeling a little sick to your stomach after reading this it’s not heartburn from breakfast. It’s God saying He’s ready for you!!

Excitement….chaos….remorse oh my!

Hmmm…where to begin.  It all began last week, four days ago to be exact.  It was a complete spur of the moment decision. During my blog travels to find some new blogger friends I stumbled onto a blog named Finding Hope. YES, YES, YES!!  I immediately connected with the author. We seemed to have a lot in common.  Would this truly be where I found my hope?

Finding Hope
 

Things have been crazy here lately. Companies closing down, other companies on the downturn, my husband going back to school full time, wilder than normal kids and no time for really anything other than the day to day.  I felt as if I was drowning. It’s up to me to keep this family running during this next year and I’m feeling more than overwhelmed (can we say triple overwhelmed?!) about what I need to do. I wanted to do something I wanted to do instead off always what I must do. Not necessarily in a selfish way but I needed some quiet time alone with Him. I’ve known for a while. This is my chance to rekindle.

The most current post on this blog was about an upcoming bible study about the Proverbs 31 woman through Good Morning Girls. A woman I so desperately would love to be but is it at all possible? I decided in all of about 15 seconds that I was going to do this. I email the author of the blog to join the group.  A three month, five day a week study about this ‘perfect’ woman.  Two to three verses per day – how hard can that be? I can surely find 5-10 minutes of quiet time to myself to study and meditate on these verses so I can be an integral part of this group.

I’m all set…printed my study guide, printed the e-book, joined the Facebook discussion group.  I am ready to go.

Day one. Monday May 14th. I struggled with finding my quiet time. I really wanted to get up early so I could grab an iced coffee and enjoy this quiet time. I set my alarm and of course the children that never get up early get up 10 minutes before my alarm is due to go off. Failure. Fast forward through the day. I find my 15 minutes at the very end of the day. 11:45pm. I’m wondering what I’ve gotten myself into. Was this a mistake? Was this not the right time? Everyone else in the group seems so put together. Great…now I’m intimidated but determined.

Day two. Same story. I’m now wondering if day three will pick up. I’ll be sure to let you know!
