Let’s Get Praying – Keep it up!

Hello LASF Ladies!

It is talk-able Tuesday and I am so glad you are here.

I have a serious question.  How are things going for you? Really?  How are things regarding your relationships?  Your family? Your city? Your state? Your country? If the answer is that things are not going well, then it is time to PRAY and time to keep PRAYING!

Ladies, I believe it is not a coincidence that this month we are focusing on PRAYER.  I believe it is not a coincidence that I keep hearing Christian leaders calling for God’s people to PRAY.  I just read a letter from Dr. James Dobson and a letter from Rabbi Johnathan Cahn calling God’s people to PRAY.  I believe it is not a coincidence that I was reading 1 Peter 4 & 5 last week just before I met with the Fervent Book Club Ladies, and it says

1 Peter 4:7-8: But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.  And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.

1 Peter 5: 8-10: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.  But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

I believe all these things are happening because it is time for me to PRAY and it is time for you to PRAY.  To PRAY Ladies!  Pray for your marriage.  Pray for your family.  Pray for your church.  Pray for your city, your state, and your country.  We need to be on our knees before God Praising Him, confessing our sin to Him, pleading with Him to restore these things back to himself and that His TRUTH will reign, and thanking God for Jesus and His sacrifice.  Then be still and rest in the Lord knowing He hears your Prayers

Ladies keep PRAYING!  Be fervent in your PRAYER.  I feel an urgency.  Pray for God to have forgiveness and mercy on you and on your spouse, family, city, state, and country.

Keep Praying, in the good times and in the bad times.  We are living in a post-christian time.  God’s TRUTH is not accepted or respected by the majority.  We need to be in PRAYER in these days, so we can be strong and in direct communication with our Lord, the Lord of the Bible.  Keep PRAYING!

As always, I have a print-able for you. Your print-able this week is to encourage you to PRAY ALWAYS.  Please take a moment to print your Craft-able print-able and make your two bookmarks.  Use them as you read a book and use them in your Bible to be reminded to PRAY ALWAYS.  You can also keep one and give one away to encourage a friend to PRAY ALWAYS.

Love you ladies and blessings to you as you keep praying and making prayer a default response to your life circumstances.

See you next Tuesday for Talk-able Tuesday!

Krista

    Be a REFRESHMENT to Others

    Hello LASF Ladies and thank you for joining me at the Blog.

    Moose-smHow has your week been?  I pray that you have taken time this month to allow the Lord to REFRESH your soul.

    Last December I told my husband that I would love to see a moose this Winter on our property.  I love nature and all God has created and living on our piece of property in a rural setting allows me to see and live right in the middle of God’s creation.  Well…one morning last week I opened my font door to go feed our chickens and when I looked to my right there was a female moose getting ready to approach the salt lick, which we set out for the wild deer, elk and moose who cross through our property.  I hurried back inside to grab my phone and take a picture.  After I took the picture, I was able to stand there and watch her.  So awesome to watch and just take a moment to breathe and allow the Lord to “refresh” my soul.  Do you ever have moments like that?  A moment where you were able to be refreshed in your soul?  Our God is so good.

    Whoever refreshes_20210118_0002I would like to invite you to listen to my podcast this week to look into God’s word  and be encouraged to not only allow the Lord to REFRESH your soul, but to allow the Lord to use you as a REFRESHMENT to others.  His word says that when we refresh others we too will be refreshed.

    Come, listen and be REFRESHED by God’s word! See you there!!

    Also, as always here is your pint-able to be able to keep God’s word in front of you each day.

    I will see you next week for Talk-able Tuesday.  We are gearing up to talk about PRAYER during the month of February.

    Blessings to you,

    Krista

    Being REFRESHED

    Refresh-the-weary-smallHello LASF Ladies!

    Have you ever taken a moment and noticed your surroundings?  Noticed all the things that grow and happen in creation?  Noticed a sunrise on a crisp, clear, Winter morning and all the colors it produces?  And when we take that moment and take a deep breathe a sense of refreshing begins to happen.  Why is this?

    In Isaiah 6:3 we read:  And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”

    Nature, all living things, the awesome array of colors we see are made by God and show us His glory.  The whole earth is full of His glory.  In Genesis it says that we are made in God’s image and He breathed life into us.  So, it totally makes sense why we feel refreshed when we spend time in God’s creation.  We are being washed in His glory, being refreshed by God and His glory.

    Ladies, are you weary and need to be refreshed?

    Jeremiah 31:25 says, I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.

    A Little Challenge:  One way to allow the Lord to refresh you and your soul is to let His creation refresh you.

    • I want to encourage you this week to take a moment, breathe deep and observe God’s creation: His glory.
      • I know that when you do you will begin to feel the Lord refresh your weary soul.
      • For me, whenever I watch a sunrise or sunset I am filled up with awe and wonder and my soul feels refreshed.  The colors in the sky are amazing and it just fills me up!
    • I would love to hear what you observed in creation and how the Lord refreshed you.
      • Leave a comment below. I would love to hear from you and be encouraged.

    As always, your print-able is ready for you to print off to continue to be reminded that God wants to refresh the weary and will satisfy the faint, that means He wants to refresh and satisfy you and your soul.  How awesome is that!  God is so good.

    Have a super week and keep watch in your inbox next Tuesday for your gift of encouragement!

    Blessings Always, Krista

    July 2020 – Pass on PEACE

    Hello Ladies!

    Do you know someone who needs a little PEACE sent their way?
    Let’s make a note card and encourage someone today by letting them know that they can have PEACE, God’s PEACE today!

    Let’s first dig into God’s word!

    This week let’s look further into what God says about peace. Let’s look specifically at Romans 15:1-13. with an emphasis on verse 13. I have a print-able worksheet ready for you!

    Second, let’s make a couple note cards and tangibly Pass on PEACE.  There is no better time than now to let someone you know that God wants them to have PEACE, His PEACE in their lives

    I have two more print-ables that will help you make two note cards and envelopes. (Make sure you print my worksheet print-able because there are further ideas about sending your note cards!)

    Are you ready to Pass on PEACE? Let’s get going and send a note to someone today! (So Fun!)

    I would love to hear from you about how it went sending a note to someone whom you feel led to encourage in the area of encouragement. You can leave a comment below. I look forward to hearing form you!

    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.

    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!

    Here is your printable for this week!  Click to print

    Enjoy printing it and posting it up to remind you to Be Still and Know that He is God!

    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!
