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:

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 – Where are you looking?


Hello LASF Ladies!
This week we are going to be looking into God’s word to answer the question. 
  • Where are you looking?
Come and join me on my podcast as we answer this question by looking into God’s word. 
I am excited to dive into the word with you.  Click the link below to start listening.  See you there! 
May your week be peaceful and keep you eyes on Jesus.  Be watching your inbox next Tuesday as we continue to seek God’s direction.

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.

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

Who am I? – You are Sanctified.

Hello Ladies and Welcome to “Talk-able Tuesday.”

Last week we read in God’s word from Ephesians 1: 4-8 that you are

  • Chosen
  • Adopted
  • Forgiven

Isn’t it awesome to know who God says you are?

This week I am going to continue to talk with you about Who God says you are.  We read in I John 1, Hebrews 2:11

  • For both He who SANCTIFIES and those who are being SANCTIFIED are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
  • 1 John 1:7-9 says, but if we are living in the light of God’s presence, just as Christ does, then we have wonderful fellowship and joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins.
  • Ladies, from what we just read you are SANCTIFIED.

Do you know what this means?

  • You are set apart for a purpose
  • You are made pure
  • You are made clean
  • You are given a moral sanction; sanction means to be made valid by a formal procedure
    • Ladies this is GOOD NEWS! Why? Because:
      • we cannot SANCTIFIY ourselves.
      • we cannot purify ourselves
      • we cannot clean ourselves
    • We need a moral sanction, a “formal procedure” to SANCTIFY us.
      • Jesus is the one who gave us the moral sanction in order for us to be sanctified, made us clean and pure. He had to go through the “formal procedure” of living here on earth, dying and rising again to give us a moral sanction so we can be SANCTIFIED, made clean and pure.
      • This is GOOD NEWS because it is a gift and our enemy cannot take it away or tell us we are not good enough. Because we already know we are not good enough and know that Jesus sanctioned us and we are therefore SANCTIFIED – made pure.
      • WOW!
    • Ladies, let this soak in for a moment….
      • You – are – SANCTIFIED, made pure and Jesus is the one who can make you pure and therefore no one or thing can take it from you.
      • Do not let the enemy trick you and tell you otherwise.

Isn’t it assuring to know who you are?  When you allow Jesus to be your savior, you gain such a rich identity.

  • An identity that does not change over time.
  • An identity that does not change as society changes.
  • An identity that does not change because another person decides to change their mind.

So, ladies, who are you?   Last week we read you are Chosen, adopted, and forgiven.  This week we read you are SANCTIFIED, made pure, clean, holy.

  • I have a print-able for you today that I made and it says “you are sanctified”. I want to encourage you to print it off and be reminded from God’s word of Who you are.
    • For your You are sanctified print-able – large: Click Here
    • For your You are sanctified print-able small: Click Here

Ladies, have a super week and remember as you go about your daily happenings, job, meetings, errands, remember who you are and stand firm in knowing this is who God says you are.

  • You are Chosen, Adopted, Forgiven, SANCTIFIED, Pure, and Clean!

See you next week for Talk-able Tuesday.

Blessings,

Krista
