Grace Day

Open Your Bible

Micah 6:8

Take this day to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.

Mankind, he has told each of you what is good
and what it is the LORD requires of you:
to act justly,
to love faithfulness,
and to walk humbly with your God.
—Micah 6:8

    So thankful for a perfect Jesus who loves me despite my imperfections! Also very thankful for another study with you ladies! Lifting each of your prayers up- He hears you, He sees you and most importantly He is with you!!!

      Thank you Allison, this is what I needed to hear today.

    RHONDA J – BECAUSE OF BETHLEHEM by Max Lucado sound like it could be a good fit for your jail ministry. A friend of mine recently mentioned it. Read more at Amazon – just a snippet here:

    “For some, Christmas is a time of excitement, celebration, and family, while for others it is a time of loneliness, grief, and loss. No matter what this season holds for you, the promise of Christmas will bring you a lifetime of hope.

    The Because of Bethlehem Study Guide includes video notes and discussion questions, Bible exploration, an individual application activity, and an Advent practice to complete between meetings.”

    Good morning! It is also foggy and drizzly here this morning. We watched 5 deer rooting through the leaves behind the house. What beauty to behold!

    Charles Stanley had quite a bit to say on this verse, but I am sharing only a small portion:
    NASB Charles F. Stanley Life Principles Bible Notes
    “We cannot expect anyone to embrace a Savior they know nothing about. Yet as the body of Christ, we are His hands and feet, His mouthpiece, His representatives, and His “fragrance…among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing” (2 Cor. 2:15). And as ambassadors for Christ, we have the God-given responsibility to live in such a way that others see Him in us by doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with our God. Therefore, set a goal to know Him better and to allow Him to love you with His infinite and unconditional love. When you abide in Him—obeying His commands and expressing His character—others will “see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 5:16).”

    Reminding us again that it all begins with our personal relationship with Jesus and that this life is not all about us (as Rhonda J just mentioned).

    What a fabulous study! What a fantastic and beautiful community! Today’s verse has been a favorite of mine for a while and I see these actions in each of you precious sisters. I don’t think I have said this before, but thank you for being my church! I have my physical church and I have all of you – the best!

    He most certainly IS “MY Jesus” ❤️ and yes I’m so happy (and not at all jealous) that He belongs to so many others… because in the “proving it”, there are so many rich testimonies to bless our lives and reinvigorate our faith.

    I am a very, very affectionate person and have a mother who so early on gave me a mental picture of climbing into my Heavenly Daddy’s lap, being held in His bosom when I needed to talk. When I needed to walk alone from the bus stop, it was His hand that I held. He was and is MY Jesus. (May He be that until my very last breath.)

    As for the song,… my very first time hearing it was at the K-Love awards when Anne Wilson performed it live…it was ESPECIALLY awesome and touching to watch some of my favourite singers lovingly singing along with Anne from the audience…my whole being was bursting…

    “Let my Jesus chaaaange your life. Hallelujah Hallelujah!! Amen Amen”

    I love. Love. LOVE that verse in Micah… It helps me remember to humble myself, rather than being SELF righteous. (There is a difference between righteousness and self righteousness, eh?)

    Have a wonderful day, sweet sisters!

    See you in the Advent study! (I think it is so weird that Advent didn’t start last week… but this week instead!) I just love Advent, don’t you?!?!?!

    From yesterday’s comments:

    RHONDA J — LoL!! Sooo funny that image of the lady simply continuing her phone conversation but with you!! Yes, perhaps nice to transition to more quiet time on the plane :D

    BUTTONBERRY and CEEGEE — YES!!!! Praise God for our far-reaching community. Technology is not always my favourite thing but the idea that we are able to share with woman who, in the past, we would have been completely cut off from because of distance.

    LINDA IN NC — That was such a powerful sharing. Thank you for that. For the beauty of the looking back with gratitude while being honest that we don’t always remember to be thankful in the MIDST of it! What a testimony.

    God bless you and yours.

  7. D W says:

    Thankful for this study and for your posts, even though I don’t comment often. You all are so encouraging and inspiring. I pray for you!

    Good Morning She’s!

    That’s a great scripture this morning!
    Walk humbly. I need to keep working on that!
    I’m off to our Saturday group which has been wonderful- learning to be Free Of Me! Great study that goes with being humble, it’s not all about us in this self-focus world, it is about living FOR GOD! Our Savior, King, Almighty Counselor, ruler of Heaven and Earth!!
    We get to go Christmas caroling at a local nursing home to bless them this morning for part of our group today, I am so excited. It brings back my church memories growing up! We ALWAYS went caroling to the shut ins in our community and the nursing home!
    Have a great day/wkd! I am excited for Advent starting!! We are looking to do an advent 4 week study in our jail ministry and play Christmas songs. Does anyone know of one to use?
