Longevity in Ministry -#1

Kicked off our first “Longevity in Ministry” time with some godly women!! Our first point: Know how to encourage yourself. Here’s how:
1. Be in the Word all the time. God’s word is still active & meant to be your favorite food.
2. Pray honestly. Tell Him what He already knows. You need Him to need Him!
3. Be around people you want to be like. Who do you hang with? Do you leave encouraged to go deep with Jesus or like you’ve been to a “Fuss Fest”? Sadly, some godly folks seem to thrive on complaining. Find thankful women to be around-it’ll rub off on you!
4. Speak truth to yourself! Replace lies with Scripture (Try Colossians 1-2!) Actively train yourself: the enemy tries to speak first person to you (“I’m not godly enough!”) when your faith makes him nervous! Speak the Name of Jesus.
5. Read old journals -remember when you fell for Jesus? He was your everything. Go back to this place: you don’t need to whip up some legalism to solve your intimacy problem with Christ! Realize you need Him to need Him. Ask for a fresh heart to remember your First Love. #moretocome#longevityinministry @leslielewis3 @lindsayjacobus @jolynneaster @ryanntvrner @vickibrent @kristinbrooke___ @moettelim @tristief @breedlove21 @susansmith415 @emmyaballard @knigliazzo

 

Get Your Fierce Face On

When your romantic overnight trip is plagued by a lost wallet, missing eyeglasses, a nearly flat tire, & a heavy downpour, you take stock of the situation. You give God your honest disappointment & then actively protect that birthright gift of JOY God gives all His kids. You get your fierce face on & talk about all you’ve been given from God. In the battle against a complaining spirit , you just crossed into victory land! Now, you must eat ice cream because it’s the dessert of warriors-I think. (Or at least, it should be. ) #enemydown #choosejoy #icecream#protectyourheart #fighttraining #activeduty — with Brian G. Fisher at Marble Slab Creamery – College Station.

 

How do you smile again?

This has been a full & just plain hard week. So many people suffering & exhaustion settling in for all. What to do? How do you find strength? How do you smile again? I think it’s two-fold: Hope in God & celebrate the people He’s given you. In the midst of the downpour, lean in to Him. When surrounded by chaos, hold your people close. Tragedies-personal & corporate -always refine us to remember what’s most important. Strangely, we can sense a new peace. Ironically, pain brings perspective. We remember what we were made for: God & people. #lovegod #lovepeople #hurricane#hurricaneharvey #tragedy #pain #perspective #truth
