Lessons from Asenath on how to be productive

Lessons from Asenath on how to be productive

So for the last 2 weeks, lovely, we’ve been doing a lot of talking about Asenath and what she gave birth to- particularly with regards to the significance of her first son’s name (Manasseh).

Today, we’ll be moving right along to decoding the significance of her second son’s name (Ephraim) and what she has to teach us about being productive- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from Elizabeth and Mary on how to walk in God's purpose for your life

Lessons from Elizabeth and Mary on how to walk in God's purpose for your life

A few years ago, I wrote about the fact that- aside from celebrating Jesus- Christmas is a huge reminder to share our gifts with the world. Not sure how, lovely? Well, here’s a hint:

The most effective way to share your gifts with the world is by walking in God’s purpose for your life.

I elaborated on the 5 whys, wherefores and more of all of this on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

How to Overcome Overwhelm with Your God-given Vision (The Birthing Process Part 2)

How to Overcome Overwhelm with Your God-given Vision (The Birthing Process Part 2)

Last Sunday's devotional was different in that rather than basing my musings on a particular woman of the Bible, I spoke on a an experience that is unique to women- giving birth.

Whilst this process is understood as a natural or physical (reproductive) process, I spoke about it and related it to the process of giving birth to our spiritual children or brainchildren (ideas, goals, dreams, vision). This will be summarised briefly in today's post but, just in case you prefer to see the whole thing in detail, you can do that here).

On thinking about this process further I realised that birthing brainchildren doesn't just cause labour pains, it can also cause feelings of overwhelm (particularly when our goals and dreams are in the early stages of being manifest or their infancy).

Well... I say "realised" but it was less a realisation and more a personal experience with overwhelm myself in the beginning of the week (more about that in the video..)

So this is where the inspiration to give 4 tips for overcoming overwhelm (really 5, if I include the bonus one) came from- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Today's devotional is different in that rather than basing my musings on a particular woman of the Bible, I will be speaking on a an experience that is unique to women- giving birth.

Whilst this process is understood as a natural or physical (reproductive) process, today I am going to be speaking about the process of giving birth to our spiritual children or brainchildren (ideas, goals, dreams, vision).

"What got you thinking along these lines, Nina?"

Glad you asked...
