“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
Welcome Home Good Morning Girls!
We are about to begin a new series titled: Blogging Through the Bible.
For those who were a part of the old GMG, you may notice there are a few changes as we begin.
No requirement to subscribe.
Just come and join in as you can. If you would like to do this alone and at your own pace that is fine. I will be your accountability partner here at the blog. Just come visit me a few times a week – I’ll be here for you.
What is Good Morning Girls?
“Good Morning Girls” is a title for a group of women who use email, Facebook, Twitter or text messaging to keep each other accountable for their quiet times.
Do Good Morning Girls groups have to follow your reading plans?
No, you may have an accountability group that is named “Good Morning Girls” but be in a group Bible study at your church, you may be following another on-line Bible study or each be doing your devotions in different books of the Bible. You do not have to all be studying the same passage but you do have to want to share openly what God is teaching you, pray for one another and support each other on an on-going basis.
How to Start a Good Morning Girls accountability group.
1.) Invite some of your friends to join you. Pray about who from your church, Bible study group, family, neighborhood or workplace would be a good fit.
2.) Groups that are smaller generally work better – 5-12 is a good number especially for email and text messaging groups. Facebook groups can go quite a bit larger and still work.
Not sure who to invite?
Visit the forum here at Women Living Well (go to the bottom of the forum) and find a group to join. Groups are forming based on interests like military wives, international women, homeschool moms, working moms and more. This forum will close on September 7th and not re-open until January.
Are you a leader of a GMG group?
There’s a GMG Leadership Facebook Group created just for you! This group is a place where group leaders can come together with ideas, questions, concerns and gather graphics for their group studies. This is a closed group. Go here and request to join in.
How do we notify you and let you know that our group exists?
I am not tracking the numbers. This ministry is not about numbers but about depth. But I do want to welcome you as your groups begin. So on the first Sunday of each month, I will ask those who are committed to that months’ reading plan to comment in the comment section. I will also ask for those who are not using the GMG reading plan but do have a GMG group, to share what their group is studying that month. I’d love to hear what you all are doing!!!
Are you a blogger who would like to join me on this journey?
If you have a blog and plan to blog your way through the Bible with me, I will have a link-up on Fridays for you. Simply post your post anytime during the week and then come here on Fridays sand share it with all of us! You are welcome to use all of the GMG graphics on your blog.
How are you doing all of this alone?
Here at Women Living Well, I have never had an assistant or helper. When you see me pop up on facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram, or comments here at the blog – that is me. All of the things I do under the “Women Living Well” name will continue to be 100% me.
But at Good Morning Girls, we had many teams and women who worked under the GMG name.
I have a team of 4 that will be helping me. When they answer your questions here, on Facebook or serve at the forum they will always be answering as themselves. They will never answer under my profile.
These are the lovely ladies who have generously offered up their time and talents to serve the GMGs:
The GMG Team
I praise God for these women who quickly came to my aid and have gotten this ministry back on its feet.
In closing, let me share with you a passage of scripture that God has impressed on me recently.
It’s so important that you know – I know – I am broken. I am flawed. I’m just a girl. A girl on this journey with you. I might fall down along the way – but I’m committed to getting back up. I might need a break for a week or two, but I’ll be back. I might say something that is not quite accurate and you might need to help me see my flaw – iron sharpening iron (Proverbs 27:17). I have not arrived – I am growing right along side of you. I desperately need Jesus every hour. So thank you in advance for your patience and grace. It is my humble honor to serve you in this way as we walk with the king.
I Corinthians 3:5-23 says:
“What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.
By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.
Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephasc or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.” (esv)
Welcome home Good Morning Girls. I’m so glad you are here.
