Made To Crave: Week One.

Mississippi Mrs. Made To Crave


Hello there, my lovely blog friends.  I mentioned back in the beginning of the year that I was planning on being more involved with various Bible studies.  I also invited each of you to participate with me in the Made To Crave Bible Study.  If you haven't had a chance to look into the study (and would like to) all the information you could need / want can be found by clicking here.  We are only in the first week, so there is plenty of time for catching up!
 
This particular bible study is based on the book by Lysa TerKeurst.

I have a Kindle (Thanks hubby!) so that's how I'm choosing to do my study.  But if you want the order yourself a hard copy, you can certainly do so.  Also, if you have an Ipad or Iphone, you can download the Kindle app and use it as I'm using my Kindle.  Pretty neat technology these days!
 
 
This week's word: Empowered.
 
What comes to mind when you see this word?
I see someone I'm currently not.  Yes, I said NOT.  This blog and this study are going to be real ya'll.  I'm not going to fake it and make like I'm getting so much out of something if I'm not.  I want God to break down my walls and EMPOWER me. 
 
And even though I don't think I'm currently empowered, does not mean that I cannot be later on in this study.  This is a long study for a reason.  We didn't gain all the weight overnight, so we cannot expect lose all temptations and cravings overnight.  It's a study, a test. 
 
In chapter three, Lysa talks about wishing for a flower garden after seeing a man planting one.  This, too, she realizes is not something that happens over night.  But yet, it takes time, patience, and even good and bad days. 
 
For many of us, this bible study will seem hard at first, and even harder to continue, but with the things we learn and the skills to become empowerd- WE CAN DO IT.
 
Are you a planner? Do you thrive on plans?
I certainly do, almost sometimes working it's way into a flaw.  I love guidelines, rules, time limits, etc.
 
The Bible and your body are your timeline, your reason, your empowerment.
 
Let's make the most of it together.
 
Dear God, Unsettle Me.

  1. I love how I am finding cross over with the SITS tribe in other areas in the blogging world. I too am doing the Made To Crave study. I keep telling myself the same thing, it didn't happen over night. Look forward to following you on this long, God craving journey!
