I literally almost cried.
Lately I’ve been so burdened to be more intentional with my busy family about how we speak to each other, treat each other, and how we can grow in the fruits of the Spirit. I’ve been thinking I needed to write some sort of study to go through and just really shift our focus to deliberate, daily studying of how God’s Word says to handle conflicts, control our tongues and treat each other with gentleness.
Because I know without a doubt, I can “remind” and rebuke all day long, but what I want is heart change. And that only comes through the power of God’s Spirit, planted in our hearts by His Word. All else is outward pruning.
And it’s too easy to just go through the motions of a day, allowing ourselves to get distracted by the trivial so we don’t have to do the hard stuff of the eternal.
Do you struggle with this?
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21
This year I was asked again to be a part of the The Ultimate Bundle, it’s focus on Christian living. To be able to tell you about it, I opened up the document with the list of ebooks. The first one I saw and chose to open was Learning to Speak Life. That’s when I almost cried.
It was exactly what I need and I got so excited, I almost stopped what I was doing to print it off and get started right then! (I love to print off ebooks and put them in a binder, or easier than that, have an office store do it and bind it for me!)
The 9-week study includes the following categories for each of the fruits of the Spirit, found in Galatians:
Scripture What is? (Explanation of the particular characteristic for that lessons) -Confessions – Copy Work (I love copy work!) – Role Play – Silly Sayings – Short Story – Family Discussion – Family Project – Prayer – and Digging Deeper
It’s a tool that will force us to be intentional, to look into God’s Word and remind us every day how we are to live in a way that honors the Father.
When I feel burned out as a mom, I can almost be sure that part of the problem is a lack of intentional discipleship on my part. But I feel so inspired to go through this study with my children!
