Hello Ladies!  It’s talk-able Tuesday!
I am so looking forward to sharing with you today and for the next three weeks the “chapel time” talks I shared at the Women’s Retreat my local church held.  I will be focusing all my talks on the theme: Washed. Cleaned. and Refreshed!

  • 1st print-able is the t-shirt.  This is for you to print off and cut out to make a commitment to yourself and to the Lord that you are willing to allow the Lord to meet you right where you are, to listen to Him and then do what He tells you to do.

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.

Direction: In what direction are you looking?

Hello Ladies!
This week I want to ask you:
  • In what direction are you looking?
And I want to encourage you to look up!  God’s word says:
  • Therefore we do not lose heart.  Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen in eternal. 2Corinthians 4:16-18 
  • And in Psalm 5:1-3 is says, Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.  Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and My God, For to you I will pray.  My voice you shall hear in the morning, Oh, Lord; In the morning I will direct it to you, and I will look up. 
Ladies, as you go through your week I want to encourage you to take a moment in
  • your quiet time,
  • as you go through your day,
  • when you on break at work, or
  • when you are in the car driving
to look up.  God wants you to direct your prayers to Him and direct you eyes on Him to the things that are “unseen”, which is heaven and all that is holds for you.

To remind you to look up, I have my hand-lettered print-able ready for you to print off.

May you have a week filled with God’s assurance and keep looking up! 

Blessings, Krista

Direction.

Hello Ladies,
How was Easter?  Easter has become one of my favorite holidays to celebrate.  I treasure this time of reflection, remembrance, and then celebration.  If Jesus had not come in physical form, had not died on the cross, and then had not risen from the dead, I cannot imagine what hope I would have.  Jesus is our savior. Jesus is our redeemer.  Jesus is our intercessor.  Jesus is our HOPE!  Ladies, Jesus is your savior, redeemer, intercessor, and HOPE too.  May you be encouraged and filled with hope this week as you go about your days this week.
This month we are going to be talking about DIRECTION.
Let me ask you a few questions:
  1. Where are you looking?
  2. In what direction are you looking? AND
  3. Where do you go to get directions?
Join me next week as we continue to read God’s word to gain understanding in regards to DIRECTION and will begin to answer these few questions.
I look forward to talking with you next week!  Keep watch in your inbox.  Talk to you soon!
Blessings, Krista

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.

Krista
