Washed. Cleaned. Refreshed! “Chapel Time” Series, Week 1: Let’s allow the Lord to wash and clean us!

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:

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.

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

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
