CHALLENGE ONE: Overcome A Challenge

 

Written by: Cindy Morrone

As we now meet with Jesus regularly in our own personal sanctuaries, enveloped in His Word and by the convictions of the Holy Spirit; amazing things start to happen.

This is just the start, my friends!  Let’s not just be attentive to the leading of God during our intentional times with Him but at all times; all throughout our day.

Karen, in Chapter 1, urges us to “…do it all with an attitude of openness that continues throughout the day. Be attentive to the Holy Spirit’s whispers to you—keep silent if that is the Spirit’s leading.  Or open your mouth and allow the words he is whispering and urging you to say to come out in your own sweet little voice.  It isn’t easy. It takes effort.”  (page 19)

Ready for Keep It Shut, Challenge #1?

Let’s read over pages 30-37 and take our cues from Joseph.  Notice Karen’s 8 learning points she has taken from Joseph’s life story.

Identify which one of these cues is your biggest challenge.  And in your meetings with the Lord, ask Him how He can help you with this challenge.

My page 39 is highlighted and underlined from the top to the bottom with Karen’s teaching on how to help us, Keep It Shut.  One word, my friends, one word……Grace. Grace. And more Grace!

Resist our urge to lash out? Yes! Bite down on our tongues? Yes! Do the right thing? Yes! Show Grace?!! Yes, and Yes!

Why?

“When we lace our words with grace, healing happens.” (page 39)

Post it!  We love to hear from you!  Share your biggest challenge from the cues from Joseph # 1-8 and how God helped you address and overcome this challenge this week!  There is so much learning in the sharing!
