What an exciting week!
Seriously, it really is! Here we are, just on the cusp of it, and I can already sense a enthusiasm simmering for you and I.
Part of the reason for my high level of anticipation is that your responses on Friday regarding the Resolution Revolution Book club and the idea of nabbing a pen pal to share the experience with was highly favorable. Apparently, the idea of making a connection and building a rapport with another woman virtually excites you.
And it should!
Psalm 133 is the only place in Scripture where God commands a blessing. This blessing is in response to “brethren (or in this case “sistren”) dwelling together in unity”. Well, as we venture into new friendships, you and I are building bridges across lines that would normally divide – geographically, denominationally, culturally – and inviting the commanded blessing of God.
Watch your head sister! You are underneath an open heaven of God’s favor!
Together, you and your pen pal will have an opportunity to encourage each other in the book club process, ask each other questions, keep each other accountable and maybe even eventually meet up at some point down the line – maybe at a Going Beyond Event or some other conference that you both plan to attend.
So, to solidify the relationship between you and your pen pal today, I need you to go and “claim” her, if you’ve not done so already. If you posted your email address on Friday’s post, but did not respond to someone else’s post to “claim them” as your pal, take time to do that today. Click here to go to Friday’s blog and look through the comments. Prayerfully choose a sister to “claim” by responding to her post to let her know that you’re excited to walk the resolution book club journey with her. Obviously, you may end up with more than one pen pal as someone else might claim you just as you are claiming someone else! Not to worry, the more the merrier!
I am praying and believing God to begin making matches that can only be divinely inspired. And you don’t have to wait until the book club begins on Friday to start building the relationship between you and your “pal”. Email her right away. Tell her about yourself and invite her to do the same. Let the friendships begin!
Today is also a fun opportunity to reveal the winners of the three subscriptions to “For Girl’s Like You” Magazine. You will enjoy this publication so much and so will your sweet little angel.
The winners are:
Congratulations to all three of you – please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you secure your subscription! And I encourage all of you to look into getting one for your daughter. It’s not too expensive and will help you continue to shape your daughter’s mind and heart in a way that you’ll be proud of.
Have a great day today my friend! No matter where you are or what you are doing – no matter how mundane or run-of-the-mill you think it might be -expect great things from God in your life this week. I have a feeling you and I are going to get more than we could ever ask or imagine!
That’s something to be excited about!
Looking forward to spending this week with you here on the blog!
