Who am I? You are…

Ladies, Welcome to Talk-able Tuesday!

We have been reading all month in God’s word about who He says you are.  So far, we have read that you are: Chosen, Adopted, Forgiven, Sanctified, Holy, Pure, and Free.

Priscilla Shirer in her bible study, The Armor of God, had a page where she listed who we are in Christ and she had been given this list from someone.

Today, I want to share this list with you just as Priscilla Shirer shared it in her study.  Let me go on and continue one last time and tell you who you are.  You are:

  • Holy and without blame, Ephesians 1:4
  • God’s temple, 1Corinthians 3:16
  • A child of God, John 1:12
  • At Peace with God, Romans 5:1
  • Christ’s friend, John 15:5
  • Redeemed, Ephesians 1:7
  • An ambassador, 2 Cor. 5:20
  • Loved by God, Jeremiah 31:3
  • One of God’s living stones being built up in Christ as a spiritual house, 1 Peter 2:5
  • The salt of the earth, Matthew 5:13
  • Made alive, Ephesians 2:1
  • The light of the world, Matthew 5:14
  • Given the spirit of power, love, and self-discipline, 2 Timothy 1:7
  • You are a Citizen of Heaven, Philippians 3:20
  • Raised up and seated with Christ in the heavenly places, Ephesians 2:6
  • His workmanship created for good works. Ephesians 1:10
  • Made wise, Colossians 1:13
  • A member of God’s household, Ephesians 2:19
  • A member of a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, and created to sing PRAISES. 1 Peter 2:9-10
  • A joint heir. Romans 8:17, and
  • You are a child of the LIGHT. Thessalonians 5:5

Now that is AWESOME!  Ladies take hold of who you are!  Do not let the enemy tell you otherwise and steel it from you.  Give praise to the Lord for He is good.

You know what?  I find that when I get my identity from Christ, I know how to respond in situations.  I know what kind of life I want lead.  I know where I am going when my life here is complete.  I know how to treat my physical body, my mind, and my soul.  I know the type of man God wants me to marry.  I know what kind of friends I should keep.  I know how to be a mom, wife, daughter, friend.  I know who I am.

Ladies, you too can know who you are.  All you need to do is have Jesus as your savior and dive into His word where you will find your identity.  You will find who you are!

Now you and I can walk boldly in this world with assurance in our heart, mind, and soul.

Praise the Lord.

Here is your print-able that I created for you to print off and be encouraged and reminded of Who you are.

I will see you next week for Talk-able Tuesday.  AND next month we are going to talk about Direction!  Come and join me to read where God wants to direct you.

May you truly have a blessed week.

Who am I? You are FREE!

Ladies, Welcome to Talk-able Tuesday!

I am so glad that you are here.  Last week we talked about who God says you are and we discovered that God says you are sanctified, made pure, and made clean.  Isn’t it reassuring to continue to know who you are?

Today we will continue talking and reading about who God says you are.

Did you know that you are FREE!

I want to encourage you today with a bunch of scripture to let you know that God says you are FREE.

  • FREE from what?  FREE from sin and death.
  • Are you ready to set your heart, mind, and soul FREE?
  • By the way, when is your Independence Day?  Do you not have one?  Read the verses below and I will tell you how to be FREE and have your very own Independence Day. OK?

Let’s go and get reading!

  • John 8:32 says: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you FREE.
  • James 1:25 says: Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set FREE from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.
  • 2 Corinthians 3:17 says: So, if the Son sets you FREE, you will be FREE indeed.
  • Romans 8:1-2 says:  But now that you have been set FREE from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life
  • Galatians 5:1 says: Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us FREE, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
  • John 8:36 says: You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be FREE. But do not use your FREEDOM to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
  • Galatians 5:13 says: Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you FREE from the law of sin and death.

Ladies, isn’t it exciting to know that you are FREE & that you will be able to be with God in Heaven when you have Jesus as your savior. 

  • The day Jesus became your savior is your Independence Day!  How wonderful is that? 
  • Do you not have an Independence Day? Have you not made Jesus your savior? There is no better time than now.
    • John 3:16 says, for God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. And then as we just read above in
    • James 1:25 , Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set FREE from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.
      • Right now you can pray and ask Jesus to forgive your sins and that you want him to be your savior.  If you just prayed for Jesus to forgive you, today is your Independence Day.  You are FREE!  How absolutely awesome!!  I encourage you, write this date down and go tell someone who also has Jesus as their savior. Start reading the Bible and a great book in the Bible to start reading is Luke.  Then look in your town for a church that preaches and teaches from the Bible.  Praying, reading your Bible , and being around fellow believers is key in growing in your relationship with the Lord.  You have a new identity. You are FREE!

Here is a little challenge:  Ladies, let’s start living like FREE women.  We do not need to let our past, our fear, or life’s pressures derail us and get our eyes off Jesus and therefore off of God.  Let’s live as women who have been made FREE! 

I hand lettered a print-able for you this week to remind and encourage you that you are FREE.  Have fun printing it off in large or small format.

Have a great week and join me next week as we look one last time into God’s word to see who God says you are.

See you next week for talk-able Tuesday!

Blessings, Krista

Let’s get Praying – Is Prayer Your Default Response?

Hello Ladies!

Welcome to talk-able Tuesday.  This is where I want to encourage you to be in God’s word because when you are you will grow in your faith and your life will be full.  Let’s get started.  You and your soul are going to love it!

We have been talking about prayer the past three weeks.

  1. Week 1 – I encouraged you and myself to “Get Started Praying.”
    • We created a Prayer Jar to be able to pick one bible verse a day from the jar for 35 days to be able to read what the Lord says about prayer and how to pray.
    • I also created a Prayer Card that was a print-able for you that has bible verse on it so we can pray bible verses and have a prayer strategy when we are praying.
    • Lastly, I encouraged you to set a goal in regard to prayer. What you want to accomplish in your prayer life.  Here is a link this blog post so you can print these print-ables if you have not already done so.  CLICK HERE
  2. Week 2 – We talked about “how to pray”. On the Prayer Card there is a 5 step strategy as to how we can begin to pray.  As Sheila Walsh has said, “Pray hardest when it is hardest to pray.”
  3. Week 3 – I encouraged you to keep praying. Keep moving toward your goal.  Keep obeying God’s word.  He calls us to pray always.  Ephesians 6:18 – And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. And Romans 12:12 says, rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

After putting all these things in place, is PRAYER beginning to be your default response to your life circumstances?

You know what I have noticed this month since I have been intentional about making prayer a part of my daily life (my prayer goal is to pray 5 minutes each day) and using all the things I talked about in the past 3 weeks?  Prayer is becoming more and more my default response to the various circumstances in my life.

  • I have noticed that my response to life situations has slowed down.
    • Example: When my son becomes upset over a situation in his life, I am more apt to respond in a voice and manner that is calmer and deescalating.
  • When my husband and I are discussing current events we both go to prayer quicker to make our requests known to the Lord and to lay them there.
  • I find myself making sure that I am set up to be able to finish my morning activities before my son is up and husband is ready for our morning cup of coffee together, so I can pray and then read God’s word.
    • I have my spot in my house where I go to pray and read God’s word. This time is becoming more and more precious times for me.
  • I have been giving prayers of thanks more often and this has filled up my own heart with gratitude for all the Lord has given me and my family.
  • While driving in my car, I am quicker to pray and give praise as I see things happen around me.
  • I have been praying God’s word more and claiming it as truth.

Is this happening to you?  Is prayer becoming a default response for you as you go through your day?  I am excited to continue growing in my prayer life and I pray the same for you!  God wants to have a close relationship with you.  Keep making prayer your default response to your circumstance

I will see you next week in March as we talk about Direction: Where do I go?

Can’t wait.  Talk to you soon,

Blessings, Krista

    Have You Made Your “Cup of PEACE?”

    Hello Ladies!

    Have you made your “Cup of Peace”? It is not too late and it is so worth it! I have all the links below.

    A verse I picked this last week from my Cup of Peace that stood our to me was Isaiah 26:3-4:  It reads:

    • “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.  Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.”
    • I am reminded that when I am steadfast, moving in God’s direction, the Lord will keep me in His peace and I am told that the Lord is the ROCK ETERNAL!  He is forever solid, like a rick, and I can trust in that and have His peace. Amen!

    Is there a verse that has touched you in some way?  I would love to hear about it and so would the other ladies.  I am always strengthened and encouraged by other believers testimonies. (You can comment below)

    JOY! (Week 2)

    Hello Ladies!

    Welcome to this weeks talk-able.

    Have you made your Cup of JOY?

    If not, I want to encourage you to go to last weeks talk-able entitled “Cup of JOY” and print off the print-able and make one. You will love it! It’s like unwrapping a present from God Every day.

    How has your week been?  Mine has been GREAT! Hard. and full of growth.  The older I get the more I am learning to enjoy the moments.

    Have you ever said to yourself:

    • There is no way I am going to have joy again.
    • It is not possible to have joy in this situation.
    • Joy is something you have when life is going right.

    How can we have JOY in any circumstance?

    I want to invite you to download this weeks print-ables to:

    1. Read with me how we can have joy in any circumstance
    2. and while coloring this week’s print-able and posting it up, be reminded what God says about how to have JOY in any circumstance.

    Having JOY in any circumstance will take practice, but when we obey God’s word and put it into action it is amazing what God can do.

    Talk to you next Tuesday and Blessings, Krista

    He Makes All Things New (Part 2): Let’s Take a Moment & Praise God for Our Living Hope

    Hello Ladies,

    My phone camera broke!  Eeek!

    As a result, I am unable to offer a video talk-able this week because I use my phone for video taping my talks and video taping myself hand-lettering the print-ables you print as well as any still pictures I use to insert into my posts.

    So I thought it would be fun to make available to you DAY 2 from my 15 Days Encouraging You that He Makes All Thing New. (This will be available to you real soon as a download-able! Can’t wait!!!)

    My desire for writing “15 Days Encouraging you that He Makes All Things New” is to

    • Encourage you to be in the word daily,
    • because when you are
    • Your relationship with God will come live,
    • you will be able to sustain your faith,
    • and you will have peace in your life.

    Let’s get started today to really live and read how Jesus is our living Hope and has given us new birth.
