Humility – Week 3: He Guides the Humble

Hello Ladies,
It is Talk-able Tuesday!
Humility-Week-3-Humble-InstWe are continuing our talks on Humility and Psalm 25 is a great psalm. David starts the Psalm by saying:
Unto You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, I trust in You;
Let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies triumph over me.

Do you recognize these verses? I sang these verses as a praise song in church when I was a little girl.  There is nothing like singing the Word!

David began by telling the Lord that he trusts Him.  David is acknowledging the Lord and putting on humility.  He then goes on in verses 8-10 to tell us about the Lord and His character.  

Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
The humble He guides in justice,
And the humble He teaches His way.

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth,
To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

Let’s look at the questions we are asking ourselves about being Humble in relations to Psalm 25:8-10 

  • Am I humble?
    • Are you humble?  Are you able to hear the Lord?  Are you able to listen to the Lord.  If so, you are on your way to obtaining humility.
  • What does being humble look like?
    • When we are humble we can listen and hear the Lord.  We are not letting ourselves, our sin, our desires, or our ambitions get in the way.  We are repentant.
  • Why does God tell us/you to be humble?
    • God calls you to be humble so he can guide you in the ways that are just, and right AND He can teach you His way, not the worlds way, but His way to live and exist.
  • And… How would the world look if we did this one thing: Be Humble? 
    • If we were all being humble, listening the Lord and being guided by Him to be just and be taught by Him in His ways we would see the 10 commandments being lived out FOR REAL.  How exciting would that be? And this is just the beginning of what the Lord wants to teach us about His way.
Ladies, as you go through your week this week.  Print off my print-able (links below) and be reminded and encouraged to be Humble.  The Lord wants to guide and teach you in His way.  And where can we find the Lord’s way?  His way to live?  IN HIS WORD 🙂  Thank you Lord for your Word.  Start digging into His Word today!

May you have a wonderful week and I will see you next week!

Blessings, Krista

Humility – Week 1 Introduction

Hello Ladies,
It is talk-able Tuesday!  I am so glad that you are here!
Humility-Week-1-Intro-PrintI hope that you were encouraged from the “Chapel Times” I shared with you these past four weeks about allowing God to Wash, Clean, and Refresh you.  In these days, it sure is important that we allow the Lord to continually wash, clean and refresh us.  I know that I need to be in God’s word every day and so do you, so we are refreshed and are able to be wide awake and in tune with His spirit to discern the times we are living in.

As I was studying Priscilla Shirer’s bible study, Elijah, this week, I read a section about being humble and how the Lord chooses to use those who are humble for His purposes. And I started to think to myself,

  • Am I humble?
  • Are we as Christians, the body of Christ, humble?
  • And does the world promote humility?
  • And then I thought… what would it look like if I was, if you were, if we were truly humble?
So, with that being said, I would like to look into God’s word for the rest of July and August and talk with you about HUMILITY.

Just as a little tid bit: 

  • God could not use Elijah for perform the miracle at Mt. Carmel until he had learned humility.
  • What could God do through you if you learned humility?
I am looking forward to this journey!

I have a print-able for you to print off to start thinking about humility and what God wants to start doing in you in regards to being humble.  AND I am learning some new lettering fonts during this study on humility and the font I used this week is called “octopus”  So fun!  Enjoy the Print-able!!!

May you have a super “Summery” week and I will talk to you next Tuesday!

Washed. Cleaned. Refreshed! “Chapel Time” Series, Introduction

Hello Ladies,
It is so good to be back with you all!  Have you ever heard the phrase, “May Madness”?  I totally felt that May was this way and I am glad to be back into now the routine of Summer.  My husband is on Summer break from teaching and home school for my son is on a light Summer schedule.  My garden is planted and the rain has fallen to moisten our soil from a very dry May.
It feels like a long time ago…do you remember that
last month I left you with a couple questions?
  • What are you suppose to do in this time?
  • What activities are you to commit your time to?

that was inspired from Eccl. 3:1, which says,

  • There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
I would love to hear what you and the Lord did or did not do this last month.  You can comment below to encourage everyone.  I do not know about you , but when I hear how God is moving in others lives I am encouraged!

Washed Cleand Refreshed on clotheslineAlso, I mentioned last month, I was speaking as well as planning the Women’s Retreat for my local church.  All of us at the retreat made a commitment to allow the Lord to meet us right where we were and then allow Him to wash, clean, and refresh us throughout the weekend.  Then on Sunday, our last “chapel time” together  I challenged the ladies as well as myself to continually be washed, cleaned and refreshed, so we could be a refreshment to others.

I would like to take the next three Tuesdays in June to talk with you and encourage you to be Washed, Cleaned, and Refreshed! These are the talks I shared with the ladies at the retreat during chapel time.  So, for the next three Tuesdays you could say we are going to have a little “Chapel Time”.  I am excited and are you ready?

Watch your inbox next Tuesday and we will get started!

Blessings to you, Krista
Do not forget to leave a comment to share with all of us as to what the Lord and you have been doing this last month.
Here is your print-able for this week:

There is a time for everything

Hello Ladies,

It’s Talk-able Tuesday! Are you ready for a short talk with a hand lettered print-able I made that is attached for you to print off, remember, and be encouraged by God’s word?
Let’s get going:)

2021-May-Week-1-There-is-a-I have an announcement to make.
I am going to be taking a little break from my posts, print-ables and podcasts with LASF for the rest of this month, the month of May.  I will be back in June ready to continue in Ecclesiastes.

For today, I would like to look at Eccl 3:1.  It says:

  • There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens:

I have been asked to speak at my local churches Women’s Retreat this year and the retreat is over Memorial Weekend. I am very honored and excited to be able to share what God and His word have to say about being “Washed, Cleaned, and Refreshed”.  I am going to be giving “Talk-ables”,  you could say, to the women in my church. How fun is that? How humbling is that? I am needing some extra time this month to prepare.

As I read in Ecclesiastes, there is a time for every activity under heaven and right now I need to put LASF on pause.  Thank you for your understanding.

Let me ask you, What are you suppose to do in this time?  What activities are you to commit your time to?  It is OK to stop some things for a time and then pick them up again.

Isn’t it comforting to know that there are certain times to do things and that there is a season to every activity we do here on earth.

Ladies, enjoy your time this month doing the activities the Lord wants you to do.  I look forward to seeing you in June.

Blessings to you, Krista

Direction: Where do you go to get directions?

Hello Ladies,
This month I have asked the questions
  • Where are you looking and
  • In what direction are you looking?
Today, I would like to ask a final question about direction:
  • Where do you go to get directions?
Do you go to your friends? Your spouse?  Your parents? Do you go to social media?  Do you go to specialists to get directions?  Do you go to “influencers” in specific areas?  Do you go to the “experts”?  Am I saying never go to these people for some advise?  No.  But, where are you going first to get some “direction”?  Where are you going the most to ask for directions?

I want to pose to you that you can go to God’s word to get all the directions you need for your life.

God’s word says:
  • Psalm 119:103-105 – How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore, I hate every wrong path. Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
  • Proverb 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
  • 2 Timothy 3:16-17 – All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Ladies, I would like to encourage you that when you have decisions in life to make and you need some directions, you do not know what to choose, which path to take, or who to listen to, that you go to God in prayer, be still, and then dig into God’s word. 
  • It will direct your life. 
  • It will direct your decisions. 
  • It will direct your relationships. 
  • It will direct your feet.
  • It will give you directions!
Get your directions from God’s word today and every day!Have a blessed week.

Krista
