Week Two

A Woman After God’s Own Heart

1 Thess. 5:17
“Pray without ceasing”

Ok, so how was it?
How was your first week seeking to be a woman after God’s own heart?
Did you find it easy to add this to your schedule; or was it a challenge, like it was for me?
Either way I spent more time with God this past week than the week before!
I’ll take it!
I really liked the challenge given on page 10: we were challenged to commit to do three simple things this week. 1. Get a prayer journal, 2. Set a must keep appointment with God, 3.Designate a place.
How did you do?
Me? I grabbed my small 3-ring binder prayer journal and tried to sit down in my living room at about 8:15am. I put a cardboard box under my coffee table that holds all I need: my bible, pens, index cards, workbook. We can do this!

3. Pray without ceasing

5. I find my attitude much more Christ-centered when I have spent time in prayer. I set my alarm for 5 minutes and knelt down and prayed, I desire to do that everyday.

I am still waiting for my book. But everyday I am more aware of how much I must rely on Jesus for strength. I have done internet studies with friends before so am really looking forward to getting started.
