Prayer: Putting Your Faith in Action

Hello Ladies!
You may have noticed that I am a week late.  I am sorry for the delay.  Have you ever had those weeks that are just plain difficult and difficult in more than on area?  Well these past couple weeks have been just that.
So much so that I have been on my knees in prayer to my Father, our Father, to give me peace, guidance and wisdom. 

Isn’t it just like the Lord to to give you what you need just when you need it? 

God knew that these past couple weeks would require prayer and some times prayer on my knees in obedience to His word to bring everything to Him in prayer, and to pray without ceasing. So, as I was video taping, editing the videos, and creating the print-ables for today’s talk-able entitled Putting Your Faith into action through prayer, I was putting my own Faith into action through prayer.  It is amazing to come to the other side of a difficult time and see how God carried you and had you study and learn something in His word that you would need to use. He is a mighty God who cares for each of us.

With that being said, thank you for your patience and understanding.

Are you ready to put your FAITH into ACTION through PRAYER!?!

In today’s talk-able I want to share with you:

  • What God has to say about prayer.
  • How God says we should pray.
  • Why I have a passion to encourage you to be in God’s word.
  • 5 mind sets you can change to move yourself in the direction of praying.
  • and remind you that the enemy does not want you to pray.

AND

  • Give you 4 actions you can do to encourage yourself to make prayer part of your daily time with the Lord.

Come and join me for my talk-able and let’s be encouraged to put our faith into action and PRAY!

Blessings,
Krista

Pray Always

Hello Ladies and welcome to Talk-able Tuesday!

September is here and I can hardly believe it. Summer is starting to turn into Fall. Can you feel it in the air? Here in Idaho, our nights are cooler and our mornings are taking longer to warm up. Not sure I am ready for FALL just yet.

We went through three “Cups” this Summer and I can hardly believe it. We read what God has to say about JOY, PEACE, and FAITH. We are now ready to look into what God has to say about PRAYER.

Before diving into PRAYER, let me step back for a moment and ask, how did you like making all the “Cups” this Summer?

What was one take away you had from reading God’s word regarding FAITH, since we just finished our “Cup of FAITH”?  (I would love to hear form you in the in the comment section below.)

For me it was fun to be able to read a verse each day for a month on a specific word and really start to wrap my mind around that one word and what God thinks and says about it.

I think the biggest take away for me was starting to think of FAITH as an Action.

This month, September, I would like to put our FAITH into action!
How?
By following God’s instruction from His word to PRAY.  Prayer is our biggest weapon against the enemy and yet we tend to use this the least or as a last resort much of the time.

I do not know about you,  but I want to change this in my life!  I  would like to become a prayer warrior.  Do you?!?

Prayer is essential and necessary to be able to talk to God, make our requests known to Him, have our praises heard, and to hear from God ourselves.

In Ephesians 6:14-17, Paul talks about putting on the whole armor of God.  Why?  Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness of this age.  We need to be prepared and ready and once we have on God’s armor we are told in verse 18 to PRAY always, with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.

Ladies, We need to have Prayer be our “first line of offense and defense” not just used as our “last resort”!

When your world is out of control, events go wrong, friends hurt you, or your spirit is in the dumps, what do you do?

  • Talk about the other side being wrong?
  • Blame someone?
  • Gossip to others?
  • Binge eat or go into a deep depression?

I want to encourage you that your best line of offense and defense is to PRAY!

For the next two weeks I would like to encourage you to start to think about praying first and praying always.
Before

  • you do anything about a problem,
  • say anything,
  • or react on your feelings.

Take a minute (or maybe 2 or maybe even 10) to PRAY.  Allow God to be the first to stop the spinning, right the wrong, heal your heart, and lift you up!

*** Then in two weeks, Sept. 15th, I am going to email you again with a video talk-able to encourage you to continue to PRAY first and PRAY Always, so that PRAYER starts to be in the forefront of your mind.  We need to form a new habit. And when you form for yourself the habit to go to God in Prayer first and Always, you will have taken a huge step in putting your FAITH into Action and allowing God to direct your path. Something to remember:

  •  Our “fight” is not against other people, but against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness of this age and the only way to “fight” back is to go to battle through prayer.

God notices when we obey and change more and more into the people He wants us to be.  His blessings flow!

*** To encourage and remind you to PRAY first and PRAY Always, I have hand-lettered a print-able just for you!  Please, copy it, pin it, and post it to remind yourself to PRAY Always and I will see you in two weeks!  I am excited to put our Faith into Action and obey God’s word to PRAY Always!  Let’s get started!

Blessings and Smiles, Krista

See you in 2 Weeks 🙂

Clean Life, Clean Living (Part 1)

Hello ladies and thank you for joining me today!

I have to tell you, I have had the flu/cold sickness for the past week and a half and I am ready to be feeling better.  I sill have a lingering cough and so with that being said my talk-able this week is short, but sweet.  Thank you for your understanding.

As Winter is ending and Spring is approaching, I decided to postpone my talks “He Makes All Things New” until April when Spring is in full motion.  This month with the Winter days getting longer, the snow melting up here in Northern Idaho and with starting to physically feel better, I feel the need to start to clean things up in my life.   I am getting the urge to deep clean my house and feel the need to have the Lord deep clean my life as well.  Do you ever feel this way?

I want to encourage you today that the Lord wants to clean us up! He wants to clean you up. Why?  So we can have a clean life and be righteous, full of right living, so we can be in a great relationship with our God and with others around us.

Enjoy todays talk-able and join me March 24th for the second part of Clean Life, Clean Living.

Be Still

Hell Ladies,

I am so glad that you have joined me today to be encouraged to “Be Still and Know that He is God.”  This is what Psalm 46:10 encourages us to do.

What does it mean to be still?  It means to:

  • Stop your body from moving.
  • Stop you mind and get our thoughts together.
  • Stop your soul from spinning our of control.
  • Stop listening to everyone and everything around you.

And Know:

  • Know that God is your refuge. (Ps. 46:1)
  • Know that God is your strength. (Ps. 46:1)
  • Know that God is present.  He is there for you right now. (Ps. 46:1)
  • Know that God is there for you in your time of trouble. (Ps. 46:1)
  • Know that you do not need to fear. (Ps. 46:2)

Come, join me and be encouraged!

Clear Vision

Hello Ladies!

It has been a while and I am so glad to be back with you this year, 2020.  Last year a phrase I kept in mind was, Be Intentional.  This year’s phrase is, you guessed it, Have Clear Vision.

Today I want to encourage you to have Clear Vision in 2020.  How can you have clear vision?  I believe that you can gain clear or 20/20 vision by taking time to be still, be in prayer and be in God’s Word.  Psalm 119:105 days, your word is a lamp to my feet and light to my path.  God wants to light your path and give you clear vision.

I am going to share with you 3 things you can do to encourage yourself to be still, pray and be in God’s word to gain clear vision, 20/20 vision, in 2020!

Enjoy my talk-able and be encouraged to have Clear Vision in 2020!
