I’m thrilled to launch Women of the Word Wednesday here at Refocused Bible Study! This project is near and dear to my heart. Every Wednesday, a fellow blogger will share with us how the Lord spoke to them through the day’s chapter.
The mission of Refocused is to “equip women to engage in God’s Word in a practical way and to know Jesus more intimately.”
“All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” 2 Timothy 3:16
I believe to know His Word is to know Him and to Love Him. His Word is alive and He wants it fresh on our hearts, minds, and lips so we can walk with Him daily. It’s for the everyday woman and man; not just pastors and full time ministers.
That’s why I’m so excited to showcase some other daughters of God in this space whose hearts echo a love and daily dependence on his Word! So without further ado, I give you our first Women of the Word Wednesday from a blogging friend, Britney Clair!
There are surprises around every corner, surprises both good and bad.
Happiness finds us when we least expect it and God picks us up when we have no strength left to stand.
There are many things we have to leave in Gods hands.
Many things we cannot and will not ever understand.
We cannot control the future, we cannot change the past and we cannot move the present.
As women of faith you must remember to, “trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart.”
To trust in the Lord is to surrender control, to trust in the Lord with all your heart is to lay it at Gods feet.
“Do not depend on your understanding,”
In order to truly strengthen our faith we must lay it at Gods feet without any understanding at all. We must remember God has always been in control and His plan and purposes for our lives are greater than anything we could have ever imagined.
“Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
As women of faith we must seek God everyday, in every situation and through any trial or tribulation. By doing this God will guide our footsteps and show us the way.
Through this word God reminded me that life can be much more simple, much less stressful and filled with more joy! He reminded me that by giving my worries and cares to Him I am free!
Hi, my name is Britney Clair! I am just a girl trying to inspire the world one woman at a time! Due to the love I hold for digging into Gods word and then journaling about it, I decided to create a blog. My hope is to inspire other girls, woman, wives and mothers to dig deeper into Gods word and listen closer to what it is he has called you to do. Visit my blog today at theproverbs31wife.com
