Paid In Full
Week 6: It's All Under Control.We cannot believe we are at the end of this book. We have enjoyed it so much and learned a lot along the way. We hope you have as well. This week we are talking about plans, pinings and a promise. Jesus already paid every single one of our debts in full when He died on the cross. Too often, we forget that! God plants us in a place we never even wanted to be yet find it's what we really need. When Jennifer said that, we were both like, wow how true is that. So often we are brought to places we have no desire to be but it's in those places God uses us and we look back on them finding that was exactly where we needed to be at. So, wherever He is planting your seeds at, tend to them well. Help them to sprout up into strong flowers. Flourish in the calling He is leading you into. You will face struggles throughout every planting but it's in that you grow and become something so beautiful! Be sure to tune in next week for our Season Finale! We have a HUGE surprise for you!!

It's All Under Control Week 5:Do you know that familiar feeling of being placed in the waiting room? Where you sit and play the waiting game. Every time the door opens, your eyes quickly shift to see if it’s your doctor coming out to give you the report on your loved one. It’s not a fun or pleasant feeling. What if we told you that God often places us in the waiting room? The waiting room is a place where we are only told to trust Him to work it all out. There are no hints shared about what’s to come out of the waiting or on the timing of when it will all play out. Nothing about waiting is easy. When we try and take the lead over the drivers seat, we are interfering with the work only God can do; delaying the process of His perfect plan for our lives. God's delay sometimes seems like denial. While sometimes this is true, other times it's not. Embrace the wait and trust God through it all, giving God all the control!It's in the waiting where God works on us. Think back on past times when you were placed in the waiting room, can you see now that God's hand was all over it and He was up to something so amazing? Rest in knowing that waiting is a pathway to protection.

Quiet My Soul
It's All Under Control Week 4.Well y'all, this week has been such a good reading. The Lord is working on us and our hearts, teaching us so many things through this study and we hope and pray He is doing the same for you. This week we talk about the importance of quieting our souls so that we can better hear from God. Jennifer writes about Do, Delegate, Dismiss. We've got to allow our schedules to line up with God's plans for us, not ours. Getting caught up in every yes, takes away from others opportunities to shine but also wear us down, keeping us from our full potential in the areas God is calling us to serve in. HELP! I think we can all agree that asking for help is something most of us have a hard time doing. Pride gets in the way, our need to control everything stands in the way, worrying about how it will get done keeps us from asking. There are many reasons why we don't ask for help. But we learn that even Jesus asked for help on multiple occasions throughout His time here on earth. We too, should learn from this and step out to ask for help more often.

Welcome to It's All Under Control: Week 3! We are halfway done already. Please share with us how much y'all are learning and enjoying this study. We love hearing your feedback. Did you ever learn the obedience song in Sunday school or children's church? Obedience is the very best way to show that you believeDoing exactly as the Lord commands, doing it happilyAction is the key, do it immediately, joy you will receiveObedience is the very best way to show that you believeO-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-EObedience is the very best way to show that you believe We want to live pure, we want to live 'clean, we want to do our bestSweetly submitting to authority, leaving to God the restWalking in the light, keeping our attitude right, on the narrow wayFor if we believe the Word we receive, we always will obeyO-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-EObedience is the very best way to show that you believeLet's face it y'all, being obedient isn't easy! Being obedient is hard work, it takes discipline and self control. BUT we are learning through this study that being obedient to God is so rewarding. You are in charge of obedience, God is in charge of the results. Whew y'all! That is some powerful stuff. The results are in His control, not yours.

We All Have Superpowers
Welcome to Week 2 of It's All Under Control! We hope you are enjoying it and getting as much from it as we are. This week we are talking about superpowers. God designed each of us with a superpower that only we have. I know that's hard to believe but it's true. We compared it to Superwoman, she is the only one who can complete specific tasks, that's why she's relied on. God created you with purpose, He designed you uniquely and specifically for your calling. There is no one else on this earth that can complete the tasks He's given you. We often miss out on our superpowers when we keep holding onto the same old path. We do not have to pick one road and walk that path for the rest of you life. We hang onto the place we are right now thinking we are stuck there. We are to come back to the fork in the road daily, asking God to help you choose which way to go. Are you to go left, right, straight or around the round about? We will be the miracle for other people and at some point they will be the miracle for us! God needs you to be that miracle for someone else, focus on what He wants of you and surrender everything keeping you from seeing it through! You can't walk in your calling when you're still hanging onto control because it stunts your growth.The harvest always comes! Don't give up, don't hang on to your difficult circumstances. It will get better and you will come out of it if you just trust God and let Him lead you.

Pull The Plug
Are there things in your life that you need to literally pull the plug on? Maybe it's over committing yourself to way too many things, a toxic relationship, a negative situation, thoughts in your mind and so forth. We all can take some time to think of a few things that need to be removed from our lives. Some of our plugs are distractions, keeping us from hearing directly from God. They get in the way and it clouds our way of thinking, talking and even acting at times. Join us on this episode as we dive into a great discussion of the things in our personal lives we've had to pull the plug on. We challenge you to evaluate your life and see what plugs need to be pulled.When I am plugged into so many things, I have such a hard time hearing from God. I choose to replace those things with worship, praise, bible reading, prayer and taking time for gratitude!

Plug It In
Plug it in, plug it in. We are so deeply in need of Jesus juice every single day. We need the restoration that He offers us. All we have to do is plug into Him. We don't even have to chase Him down, He is waiting for you and for me.Have you ever been stranded out in the middle of nowhere and your phone dies? Your GPS goes out, you have no idea of how to get to where you're going. You're in a panic and in desperate need of help. In life, we often die because we haven't been plugging ourselves in daily. Plugging into the word, prayer, worship and time spent with God are all such an important part of our daily lives, so when we don't take the time to plug in we slowly start to fade off until we die. Then we become panicked by it, fear and anxiety set in and our mind goes to a place it doesn't want to be.There are times when we need to plug into another source as well. Our friends are the extension cord to help plug us in when we can't seem to do it on our own. We all carry a little more weight from time to time and need others to help lift us up. That is where true Christian friends come into place, they help pick up your cord and connect it to their extension cord. Sometimes we just need a helping hand!

He Doesn't Wait For Perfection
Season Finale! Join us for our final episode of season 3 as we speak truth into how and when God uses us. Too often we believe we have to be perfect for God to use us. We get lost in our past and think God could never use someone like us with such a dark and dirty past. God knows what you've been through and God's timing is perfect so if it's now that He wants to use you, then now is the time. Despite everything you've been through, He can and will use you, you just have to be willing. He knows your heart. Ecclesiastes 11:4.In life we should strive to be Christ like, not worry about where we have been and try to be perfect but be the best version that we can be. We often waste our lives by sitting and waiting on perfection because perfection never comes.God uses so many people in the Bible who were imperfect. We hope this episode encourages you to know that you don't have to strive for perfection but to be Christ like and let Jesus meet you exactly where you're at. His power is made perfect in our weakness.

He Is Who He Says He Is
Do you know who God is? Like Who He truly is? On this episode we share only a handful of Who and What God is. When we don't understand Who God is, it's hard to understand what we mean to Him and Who He is to us. We get to know who people are by spending time with them. That's exactly how we get to know God; By spending time with God and reading about Him in scripture. We will be talking about a few attributes of God, as well as sharing scriptures to go along with them. Get your notepad ready and take note because we think you'll learn just as much as we did from this!

We discuss how it applies to women in the day and time that we live in and the main focus of what it's all about. It's so easy to get wrapped up in what we feel are rules when reading through Proverbs 31 and if we aren't careful we can miss some pretty amazing things! Tune in if you'd like to hear more about the importance of being a woman living her life for God and what God expects out of us as women living our lives for Him.

Have you ever pulled in your driveway only to forget how you made it home? Like you don't remember the stop lights you went through or the turns made. Or maybe you missed the beautiful sunflower field on the side of the road or the beautiful tunnel of trees towering over the road.We tend to miss a lot of things in life when we don't look up. We can't keep our heads down, we must keep our eyes fixed on God. He is the Author and Creator of our lives and we need Him just as much as we need air in our lungs.We may go through difficult times but our eyes should remain on Him and not the storm. Keeping our eyes on Him doesn't change your circumstances but it does keep your mind off the circumstances on more focused on Him. The closer you draw to Him, the easier it is to navigate through difficult situations in life.

It's Always Something
Do you ever feel like when it rains, it pours? You aren't alone! We constantly feel like IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING. One thing after another.Just when things seem to be going great, it's too good to be true and out of nowhere something else comes. Scripture tell us that we are going to go through trials in life. It's just part of living. Until we get to Heaven, we will continuously face things. We also believe that's where our growth comes in at as well. Sometimes we need a good cry and other times we need a good laugh. Either way, we have to stay close to God throughout the trials we are facing because without Him, it's impossible to get through! The enemy will try to use our situations against us but God will use them for His glory and our good.

No Judgement Zone
Have you ever judged someone? We all can go ahead and raise our hands on this one. There have been times we have judged others when we shouldn’t have and ended up in a similar place regretting that judgement. Maybe you know what it’s like to be judged. It’s not a good feeling and often leaves us feeling inadequate. Remember that feeling the next time you start feeling judgement creep in. It’s so much easier to judge than love. Love takes work. This is a no judgement zone! We shouldn’t judge others because they sin differently than we do. We are all sinners in need of a Savior. None of us are exempt from sin. Be thankful that God doesn’t judge you like you judge others.
