Limitless Life Blog Hop – Week 4

P31 OBS Blog Hop

Sweet, beautiful, Jesus-loving friends,

I have good news today. God is doing great things! And He is totally setting us up in this study.

I think every label we’ve thrown off and replaced thus far runs us smack dab into the middle of Chapter Eight this week: From Purposeless to Purposeful.

Every label of defeat we remove and every label of promise we put on reveal another part of who we are in Christ. And the more we discover our identity, the clearer our purpose becomes.

Thousands of women armed with purpose, knowledgeable and secure in their identity in Christ, can change the world around them.

Isn’t that exciting?!

That’s YOU, my friend. You can change your world.

We’re not here to build a social club. We are here to link arms with our sisters far and wide and make a difference. This is about Kingdom building.

Today, we are using our voices to make a difference by sharing our words, our testimonies, and most importantly the powerful, life-changing, life-giving, life-sustaining Word of God. Each blog represents an arm reaching out to its own community, its own sphere of influence.

We were reminded in Chapter Seven and on the blog Tuesday that we are ambassadors. His mission is our mission.

And today is filled with divine possibilities.

Time to represent, girls! Let’s do this!

Speaking and acting on behalf of our King,

Shelly

Limitless Life Blog Hop ~ Week 3

So, it’s Week 3. And I know exactly what that means. It means we are almost halfway through this amazing study and YOU are still going strong! Yay!! But it also means that some of you are tired and really having to push forward to finish.

One of this week’s chapters is perfect for this very moment. (Don’t you love how God works these little details out? How He not only goes with us but also goes before us and makes provision for our every need?)

In Chapter Six, From Religious to Grace-Covered, Derwin says, “Works-based righteousness produces performance-based living, which suffocates our souls. It’s limiting.”

I know this life of performance-based living. I’ve lived it and it almost destroyed me. After years of performing and pleasing and working in and for ministry, my husband and I found ourselves burned out, worn out, and distant in our relationship with Jesus. God graciously lifted us out and gently drew us to Himself where we were restored, refreshed, renewed and introduced to love and grace as we had never known before.

You see, we don’t have to finish this study so that God will be pleased with us. He’s already pleased with us.

We don’t have to finish it so that He will love and accept us. He already loves and accepts us.

Derwin nails it when he says, “Many Christ-followers try to live for God’s acceptance, love, and blessings instead of living from God’s love, acceptance, and blessings to us based on the Jesus’ accomplishments for us.

Jesus has already accomplished and provided everything we need to have and walk and live in relationship with our heavenly Father.

So, as we move forward, let’s do more than just finish. Let’s do more than just check off our assignments each day.

Are you suffocating a little? Take a deep breath right now. Allow God to breathe into you winds of refreshment, renewal and restoration.

Peer into these scriptures expecting to see Him. Press in to our study ready to know Him. Turn the pages with desire to live and abide in His very presence. It’s not about performance and doing. It’s about knowing and becoming.

“Let the floodgates of God’s grace sweep you off your feet.”

Love and grace, grace, grace,

Shelly
