Hello Beloved! Today we're talking about the danger of being a lukewarm Christian. I say it's dangerous because most people that are lukewarm think they are ok with God when they are not. In this week's video we learn what makes someone lukewarm and how to sincerely follow Christ instead. Enjoy! ~ Christina

Hello Beloved! You know the feeling like never having, doing or being enough. We have so much pressure on us to do and be everything and it is sucking us dry. In this week's video fill up on this truth: we don't have to be, do, or have enough, when our God is enough. Enjoy! ~Christina

Aug 15, 2016

The other day the kids and I were in the back yard playing and getting some fresh air. It was one of those days were the temperature was perfect. Just a few plush white clouds in the sky, the sun shining to warm our skin and the wind blowing just enough to keep us cool at the same time. 

The neighborhood was quiet and all I heard were birds chirping. Then we noticed a bright yellow butterfly fluttering across our yard. My daughter noticed it first and giggling with delight she ran off in hopes to catch it. Like the little brother he is, my son ran after her. They ran in circles chasing this butterfly, laughing with joy. And while they were captivated by this insect, I was captivated by them.

Now, I still have my fair share of breaking up fights, toddler whining, baby diaper blowout type of days. So when we have moments like this I savor them. I squeeze my brain muscles as hard as I know how to make sure I remember these moments forever. The moments where I can't believe this is my life. Where it feels like a dream in the best possible way and my joy is full.

But I don't want you to confuse my joy with the things and relationships. The joy comes from opening my heart to receive whatever it is that God has for me. For me, it's being a wife, a stay-at-home momma of two, and ministering to women through Beloved (this was totally not my life plan but that's another story for another day). But for you it might be something completely different. A fast paced career life, a missionary traveling the world, or even a professional athlete. The joy does not come from what we have or do, but from simply being in the will of God. In this week's video Bible Study, "That Your Joy May Be Full", I add:

"Now many times the kids and promotion and/or degree will be God’s will for our life, but when we abide in Christ our joy will not be dependent on them. When we abide in Christ we have the freedom to wake up each day, loosed from the chains of people pleasing, self-doubt, pity parties, and comparison and simply find joy in doing God's will . . . that day."

I leave you with Colossians 1:9-10:

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” - Colossians 1:9-10 ESV

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the fruitful, joyful and full life that You offer. I pray for help to live an obedient life that glorifies You. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Well, Beloved. This is the last video in our "Abide" Bible study series. I hope you enjoyed it and it was a blessing to you, bringing you hope and freedom where you needed it most. Comment and let me know which video was your favorite. I'd love to know. And next week .... Girl, I've got BIG SUPER HUGE NEWS coming your way!!! Stay tuned!

You are loved,

Christina

If there is anything we've learned from this "Abide" Bible study series it's that God wants us to be fruitful. He wants us to shine and flourish. Then He wants us to remember that all we have is from Him and because of Him. It's our fruit, but for His glory. 

Now we can go on two extremes when it comes to living fruitful lives that prevent us from giving God His due glory.

1.) The first is pride. This is where we take credit for what God has done. We think life is all about us. Rick Warren's New York Times best seller "The Purpose Driven Life" has sold well over 30 million copies worldwide.  Many would consider this their most favorite book ever. I think the book's popularity comes from its topic. It's about understating your purpose in life and how to achieve that purpose. The most alarming thing about the book for most readers is probably the first sentence that says "It's not about you." Your whole purpose in life is not all about you, that's because your purpose is greater than just you. 

2.) The second is an incorrect understanding of humility. This is when we hide our talents and fruit thinking this is humility. This is not humility. I use to think that being humble meant being invisible. I then learned humility does not have to do with how many people see you, it's about who you give credit to for all that happens in your life. Humility is not about hiding your gifts and talents but about giving credit to the One who blessed you with them.

God wants us to be fruitful and He wants the world to see it, so He can be glorified. Jesus tells is in Matthew 5:15:

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” - Matthew 5:16 NIV

In this week's video Bible study, "By This My Father Is Glorified", Jesus tells us that our fruitful lives are not only for us but also to glorify God. So that others my see our fruit and bring God even more honor and praise. 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for abiding in me as I abide in You, strengthening me to live a purposeful and fruitful life. May I live in such a way that always gives You glory, honor and praise. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved! Be sure to comment and let me know what talents and gifts God has given you to be fruitful for His glory? I can't wait to hear all God is using you for to bring much light into this dark world.

Love,

Christina

Sometimes life can just feel like too much. Too much to do. Too much to think about. Too much to process.

At the same time, it can feel like it's not enough. Not enough time in the day, energy in the body and money in the bank.

Yep, life will have you feeling like you just CAN. NOT. EVEN! Well, in today's video Bible study, "Abide In Me And I In You", Jesus lets us know that we can't. 

I mean He makes it really clear. There is nothing that we can do without Him. Now this may seem extreme but chew on this quote from today's video:

"On a physical level, if God does not provide me with health and strength I cannot even get out of the bed. On a mental level if God does not wake me up in the morning in my right mind I can’t do anything productive. On a spiritual level if God does not protect me and keep me I have no hope and joy to motivate me to do what He’s called me to do. We can’t take for granted even the little things God has provided for us on a daily basis."

Abiding in Jesus is the realization of just how desperately we need Him. The good news is that when we abide in Him, He also abides in us. Although we can do nothing without Him, that is never a concern for the woman that believes in Him, because He is always with her. 

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for everything You do for me, even the things I do not realize. I pray for the wisdom to keep a thankful heart that always gives You the glory You deserve from my life. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved! Comment and let me know, what's one thing God helped you do today? It doesn't have to be grand, I just want us thinking of how good He is all the time.

love,

Christina

The hardest part about losing weight is keeping it off once you've lost it. The hardest part about marriage is not the wedding, it's staying married. The hardest part about being a parent is not having kids, but raising them.

Sometimes our greatest challenge is not starting a race, but staying in the race until the end. Jesus knew this would be true for His disciples. They had already been cleansed and set apart by the truth revealed to them by Jesus. Their challenge now would be to stay that way even when Jesus was not physically with them.

Your challenges may look the same today. You're on the right path, headed in the right direction. Your goal now is to stay the course; to not get distracted with boredom, curiosity, fatigue or frustration. What does Jesus tell his disciples to do to stay the course? You guessed it: abide in Him. 

And as we’ll learn in this week's video Bible Study, "You Are Already Clean", our strength to persevere not only comes from abiding in Jesus but that when we do, He too abides in us. All the power and fuel we need to keep running the good race is not all up to us. It's a comforting reminder that Jesus is with us helping us all along.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for abiding in me and strengthening me with Your Holy Spirit. I pray for the courage and faith to run the race You have marked out for me. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved. Let me know in the comments what types of challenges you've faced while running your race for Christ.

Much love,

Christina

So the other day I'm folding up clothes while my son was playing in the room with me. Next thing I know I see him just as content walking around with a pacifier in his mouth. 

Now, normally this would have not presented a problem except that we weaned him from the pacifier months earlier. I'm surprised he even knew what to do with it. But somehow, someway, he found a pacifier that had probably been lost for who knows how long and pops it right in his mouth. 

I kindly took it from him and he went on his merry little way. This was a completely different reaction from when we first took the pacifier from him. As you moms, grand-mothers, aunts and god-mothers know, weaning a baby from a pacifier, bottle, or even thumb can be challenging. The baby has grown used to doing things one way and here we come changing up the whole game. Who do we think we are? And with screams, tears, tantrums and even sleepless nights they let us know how they really feel.

Just like we let God know how we feel when He allows certain things or relationships to leave our lives. But like a good parent He does not want anything in our lives that prevent the growth and fruit He desires of us. Now, I do not believe God is the cause of our pain but many times He will use our pain to grow and develop us.

In our text for this series Jesus calls this process pruning. This is the gardening technique where a gardener removes useless stubs and shoots from a plant so it can produce more fruit. And in this week's video Bible study, "Every Branch That Does Bear Fruit He Prunes", Jesus lets us know God does the same thing to us.

I wonder how many things we complain about that are actually God growing us and stretching us to be the women we've been called to be? Maybe the challenges we are facing are not because God is mad at us but that He's using certain undesired situations and relationships to grow us for our good and His glory. When it comes to pruning I believe the process can be painful but the outcome is always fruitful.

If you know a sista-girl going through be sure to share this week's devotion and video with her. You never know who might need some Beloved encouragement today.

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for growing me to live a fruitful life. I pray for the correct perspective during pruning seasons to trust You through the process. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved! Comment and let me know if you have ever been through a pruning season that you are currently enjoying the fruit from today. Let me know about a difficult time in your life that worked out for your good and God's glory. 

you are loved,

Christina

Each year my family and I grow a small garden in our back yard. It is fun to plant, take care of and watch grow; especially with the kids. But we don't grow this garden just for fun. We also want fruit to enjoy. The same is true for God. In this week's video Bible study, "You Are The Branches", we learn that God is growing a garden. He is the gardener, Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. This garden He has been so careful and watchful over is His Church. Not the building you go to on Sunday mornings but you and me. It's those that believe in His Son as Lord and Savior.

And after all the care God is investing in His Church you better believe like any good gardener, He is looking for fruit. God wants us to be fruitful. So let me ask you: what is fruit? And what does a fruitful life look like? These are the questions we're answering in this week's video but here's a quote from today's Bible study to get you thinking in the right direction. 

"Our fruit is not just knowing about Jesus but actually knowing Him. Our fruit is not just reading God’s Word but actually doing what it says. Our fruit is not just thinking of love as this great concept or cute cliché that we like to throw around. Our fruit is actually laying our lives down and being the love we so highly esteem. This is the fruit God is looking for from our lives."

Be fruitful today Beloved and be sure to share today's devotion and video with a friend. You never know who might need some Beloved encouragement today.

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for planting me in Your truth and love and allowing me to be a part of Your perfect plan. I pray You make it clear to me the fruit You desire of me and the power to produce it. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved! Comment and let me know if you have a garden this year and what you're planting. If you do not have a garden then let me know what you would want to plant and grow if you did have one?

With love,

Christina

I love a good bargain. The words "sale", "discount" and of course "clearance" are my dearest friends. Oh the joys of never paying full price! I like to think I'm pretty good at finding a deal. I actually schedule our family meal plan around which items are on sale that week at the grocery store. Oh, chicken breasts are $1.99/lb that week? Looks like we'll be eating chicken and rice, chicken salad and chicken fettuccine that week. Want to know what's for dinner? Just look at this week's super saver deals, ok?

Now, as much as I love a good deal I've also learned there are some things I just can't go cheap on. Fruit, mattresses, and contact lenses; just to name a few. For me, with items such as these price matters. Sometimes you just have to pay full price to get better quality. It's ok to buy knockoffs or off-label sometimes, but other times you just have to get the real deal. You know what I'm saying?

I think the same is true with where we place our faith. There are a lot of knockoffs out there for where we can place our faith and hope, but the satisfaction and joy does not compare to what Jesus offers. It may work for a while but like the cheap pantyhose that only last one time, it won't last for long.

This is why in this week's video Bible study, "I Am The True Vine", Jesus makes it clear He is not just any vine but the TRUE vine. He is the one offering fullness of life and joy to all that place their faith in Him. And girlfriend let me tell you, this salvation He offers was not on sale or clearance. It was the highest of prices. Good for us we didn't have to pay it. Jesus paid it all. So if you want to best life has to offer? Make sure you are serving the best God: Jesus Christ.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for paying the high price for my salvation. I pray for the courage and strength to live the life You died for me to live. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved! I know I'm not the only one who loves a good deal. Comment and let me know where do you find your best deals and bargains?

love always,

Christina

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! Today is also the day that we start a NEW Bible study series called "Abide: How To Live A Fruitful And Joyful Life". I feel our last two Bible study series were pretty intense. With "Believing Better" we learned about Jesus' temptations in the wilderness and how we can fight those same temptations. With "Unshaken" we faced our fiery furnaces with our friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. I'm excited to say we're going to slow things down for a bit. Today's study looks at some of Jesus' last words to his disciples before His crucifixion. His words are filled with hope and love as He prepares both them and us for what is to come. 

His last instruction is for them to simply abide in Him, His love and His word. It's a charge to not make life as complicated as we do and a wonderful reminder that no matter how much we hustle, the fruitful life that God desires of us is only found in abiding in Him. So how do we do that? And what does a fruitful life even look like? Well, this study will answer these questions and more. Check out this week's video, “The Vine And The Branches”, to introduce our "Abide" Bible study series. Enjoy and be sure to share with someone you love.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that You guide me to abide in You and experience the fruitful and joyful life You've called me to. I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Let's keep this conversation going Beloved! Comment and let me know how do you slowdown from all the hustle of life to connect with God?

you are loved,

Next week we are starting a new Bible study series called "Abide: How To Live A Fruitful And Joyful Life." This series started the same way all my studies do. I have a problem and I seek the Lord about it. I start studying a topic or scripture in the Bible that speaks to this specific problem and I become obsessed with it until I end up with a full Bible Study that I have to share with you. My thought process is if I have this problem you might too and if God has helped me to find freedom, wisdom or healing in this area I feel it is my responsibility as your sister in Christ to share that with you.

So what was the problem that lead to this "Abide" study? I was tired of striving. I was burnt out from thinking I needed to work my fingers to the bones and lose sleep to grow Beloved Women. I was looking at other ministries and trying to do more and be more than I was called to do. So at the beginning of this year I cried out to the Lord and told Him I was done striving. And I'm sure He was in heaven like "Good Christina, it's about time." I was lead to study John 15 where Jesus tells His disciples to abide in Him. And I was reminded God is not calling me to hustle and strive. He's calling me to abide in Him. As I've learned more about what it really means to abide in Jesus I've found much joy and fullness of life. So this “Abide” study is my opportunity to share all these lessons with you.

Are you weary of always trying so hard? Are you sick of hustling and feeling like you are not making the impact you desire? I truly believe this Bible study will help you to live free from all the expectations we place on ourselves and live joyful, fruitful and full lives. I believe this because this is exactly what this study has done for me.

So enjoy this sneak peek at our "Abide" study that starts next week. Then be sure to invite a friend that you know needs to slow down and enjoy life. You never know who might need some Beloved encouragement today.

Love,

Christina

I’ve grown very fond of our friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego during this study and I’m a little sad to say this is our last video from this series. They have encouraged us in a boldness of faith to stand firm when the struggle is real, or real hot like in their case. But it’s this very faith that gets them thrown into the blazing furnace. It’s a hard truth to accept but even with unshaken faith there are still struggles we will have to walk through.

However, in today’s video Bible Study “Unbound, Unharmed and Unshaken” we learn that when God goes through the fire with us miracles happen. We learn that the very fire the enemy meant to destroy us will be the very thing God uses to free, promote and bless us. James 1:2 tells us to:

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,”

I think James knew that as believers in Christ, when we go through the fire with faith in God and Him with us, we come out unbound, unharmed and unshaken; just like our good friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Thank You Jesus!

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for being with me in the fire. Thank You that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. I have decided to follow You because You alone are my defender, You are able and You are altogether worthy! Hallelujah! I love You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

This series might be over but this conversation is not Beloved. Comment and let me know, has God ever delivered you from a struggle and you came out better than when you first went in? Can’t wait to hear your stories! Then be sure to share today’s devotion and video with a friend. You never know who might need to some Beloved encouragement today.

Love,

Christina
