REFRESH Your Soul

Refresh-colorable-staged-smHello Ladies,

We are mid-way through January.  How are you doing?  How is your soul?  Are you taking moments to allow the Lord to refresh your soul? This last week, did you take a moment and allow the Lord’s creation, His glory, to refresh you?  If not, it is not too late and whenever you are needing a refreshing from the Lord remember to take a moment in His creation.  He will refresh you!

I have been reading through the book of James.  It has been a while since I have read this book.  James does such a great job outlining how we are to live and behave as those who have been saved through Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.  It has been a refreshing time to take a moment and look at how I am to live as one saved through Jesus.  Am I following and obeying God’s word?  Because when I am my soul is at peace and I feel fresh and ready to face each day.

When you are in need of refreshing your soul, go to God’s word.  It is full of truth and wisdom.

Psalm 19:7 says:

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.

This is such a simple thing to do and yet sometimes we go to everything else but God’s word. 

  • Ladies, right now and each day this week take some time to be in God’s word. 
  • It is prefect for REFRESHING your soul. 
  • It is trustworthy and will give you wisdom.
  • Do not wait another day!  Go to His word and dwell there.  Your soul will thank you 🙂

As always, your print-able is ready.  This week it is a color-able print-able! May you continue to be encouraged by God’s word as you read it and color your color-able.  It is there to refresh your soul and give you wisdom.

I will see you next week for Talk-able Tuesday and it is a Talk-able Podcast! (Spoiler alert!)  I am excited to talk with you.  Keep watch in your inbox for your gift of encouragement!

Blessings Always,

Krista

He REFRESHES Your Soul!

refreshes-printable-smHello LASF Ladies!

I am ready for a new year. 

Are you?

I am ready for the Lord to wash over my soul and be REFRESHED!

Are you?

Let’s take this month to allow the Lord to do just this:  Allow the Lord to make your soul fresh again.  Once you are refreshed, you will be ready to follow what the Lord has planned for you this year.  Let’s get started!

I was reading Psalm 23 and what a great place to start and begin allowing the Lord to REFRESH our soul.  He wants to REFRESH your soul.

Psalm 23:1-3 (NIV) says:

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.

I believe that when we follow our Shepherd (we follow Him by obeying His word) we will lack nothing in our soul. It is like lying in green pastures.  God’s word is like being by quiet waters.  It REFRESHES your soul.  Also, when we obey and follow His word we will be walking on the right path, the path that leads to Him and ultimately heaven.

Our circumstances do not really matter.  They can be calm or crazy, awesome or horrific, grounding or unsettling.  What really matters is our soul.  When our soul is refreshed, we can then live.  Truly live no matter the circumstances.

I want to encourage you to take a moment and read PSALM 23.  Then as you print off your print-able may you be encouraged and reminded this week to allow the Lord to REFRESH your soul.  Oh, I also have a print-able that you can use as wallpaper on your electronic device to be reminded that the Lord wants to refresh your soul.  Mine is on my phone as my lock screen saver!  I love it!!!

I look forward to seeing you next week for Talk-able Tuesday!

Blessings Always, Krista

P.S.  LASF is going to implement some new changes this year.   You can read about them below your print-ables!

A Note from me to you:   We are changing a few things this year! (YAY!) I believe that when we have God’s word in our minds, we are better equipped to live each day and impact our world for Him.  I also believe that as believers encouraging each other is vital and biblical.  So with this in mind:

  • This year I want to send you weekly encouragement from God’s word. 
    • Each Tuesday in your inbox there will be encouragement waiting for you to open! 
    • It’s like receiving a gift every week 🙂
    • You do not know exactly what you will get, but you know it will be encouraging to you and your soul!
    • If you know other ladies who would love weekly encouragement, you can send them this link, https://atomic-temporary-97180545.wpcomstaging.com/join-our-email-list/.  All they have to do is join my email list and they will get a gift of encouragement each Tuesday!
  • I will be producing one podcast Talk-able a month.  This is where I like to share more personally with you about the topic we are focusing on in that month.
  • “LASF 4 Ladies” Facebook page (I am excited about this) will be a more interactive place where we can all share and encourage each other with what God is doing in our lives through posts, pics, quotes, and bible verses.
      • God’s word says in Hebrews 10:24-25  And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
      • And says in Romans 14:19 says, So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual up-building.
    • I would love for you to join “LASF 4 Ladies” FB page CLICK HERE and click the Follow button at the top of the page and start posting encouragement for all to be built up!
    • I will keep you posted as this rolls out more during this month!

Again, blessings and see you next week for Talk-alble Tuesday. ~ Krista
