God calls all Christians to develop the fruits of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The NLT version says it best to author Melanie Hill, “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives…” It is not up us to produce the fruit. It is up to the Holy Spirit. It is up to us to be flexible, to be completely open to God, and to desire God’s work in our life more than anything. Join us in this study, What’s in Your Fruit Bowl?, to learn what fruit should be in your fruit bowl and what God expects us to do with it. Posts will be available every Monday and Wednesday.
Even though we want to be content and trust God, we can still feel overwhelmed by worry. This Lent, we want you to experience the freedom of living in Jesus when we give Him our worries and anxieties. This freedom will help you find contentment, learn how to work with your circumstances, and start to choose our faith over our feelings.
Challenge yourself to begin this year by asking God what His plans are for you. What if, for 21 days, you focused on what God wants for your life? If you accept this challenge, you will commit to praying with the purpose of learning how to have an undivided heart for God in a very divided world. Are you in?
This holiday season, Undivided Women will utilize our online Bible Study to bring women together by sharing holiday traditions that are near and dear to the hearts of the women of the wiregrass. We will share traditions that have been passed down through families for generations as well as new traditions. Most importantly we will share traditions that encourage women to draw near to the Lord, unite family and friends together, and find joy in the true meaning of the holidays. We know there is a fight against commercialism, over scheduling, and allowing stress to creep in during these busy months and our hope is to encourage and inspire women with these bi-weekly devotionals that share holiday traditions in November and December. This study will begin on Wednesday, November 15.
Do you ever feel like you are chasing perfection?
Perfection is passion, an ideal that makes us feel so strongly about the matters of our hearts that we act in ways that make us later feel shame and unworthiness, like we will never quite measure up. Passion doesn’t always lead to positive results. How can we pursue perfection without becoming undone?
In Invited, Bible teacher Christen Price weaves together personal stories with a practical party planning handbook as she shares about her own struggle with perfection when she moved home and began to build community. Her desire for perfection causes her to experience anxiety and meltdown when parties (and life!) don’t always go as planned.
