For those who have already viewed these videos over on GoodMorningGirls.org, I hope you are gearing up to begin the Summer Book Club~ The Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson! We begin May 23rd but the Good Morning Girls groups are enrolling NOW – this is the final week! We need all the returning groups to re-enroll and can’t wait to meet all the new groups too! (Questions about what Good Morning Girls are? Read here.)
In the video, I talk about a dark time in my life – which actually led to the birth of Women Living Well! I hope you will listen and follow along in James 1:1-12!
James 1:1-12 (ESV)
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings. 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. 9 Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, 10 and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away. 11 For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits. 12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
“Our fight for joy is a fight to see God.” ~ John Piper
Wednesday I’ll be covering James 1:12-18 (and talk more about a marital clash we faced during this trial). I encourage you to read ahead in your Bible!
Walk with the King!
