Lessons from the Israelite Women on How to Claim your Dreams

Lessons from the Israelite Women on How to Claim your Dreams

Raise your hand if:

  • You know you're significant and that, like Esther, God made you "for such a time as this"?

  • God has already confirmed this to you by showing you what that significant thing about you is (your purpose)?

  • Your purpose involves turning the gifts, talents and passions that He gave you into profits by using them to serve others (business)?

BUT you’re also not sure how to make this manifest…

Well, the Israelite women in Exodus 3 give us 3 simple steps that will help you do exactly that- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from 3 Biblical women on How to Abide in God

Lessons from 3 Biblical women on How to Abide in God

Last week, while talking about what The Woman with the Issue of Blood teaches us about how to live by faith, I mentioned that one of the things that she demonstrates about living a life of faith is that it requires steadfastness. I mean the fact that she waited 12 years to be healed and never gave up hope says it all, right?

Right!

I then went on to say that this whole concept of remaining steadfast reminded me of John 15:7, a scripture that I had literally been studying obsessively recently, which says:

"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you"

But- because I had other points to get through- I couldn't break this scripture all the way down the way I wanted to; so I promised to do it later.

Well, lovely, this week I did!

And not only did I talk about 3 different strategies regarding how to abide in God, I also talked about not 1; not 2 but 3 different female Biblical examples of this. Namely:

  1. The Woman with the Issue of Blood

  2. Sarah 

  3. Anna

All of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from The Woman with the Issue of Blood on How to Live by Faith

Lessons from The Woman with the Issue of Blood on How to Live by Faith

In the last few weeks I have been drawing loads of inspiration from our spiritual mother- The Woman with the Issue of Blood. For example, I've uncovered what she teaches us about:

  1. The 2 ways in which we can subconsciously; inadvertently sabotage our own prayers.

  2. How our tests are actually our testimonies. 

  3. The importance and use of affirmations.

Today we are going to discuss:

  • How she was a living testimony of what it means to live a life of faith

  • The 5 steps that we can take from her example and incorporate into our lives in order to do the same

All of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from The Woman with the Issue of Blood on How to not Sabotage your Prayers

Last week, I talked about what The Woman with the Issue of Blood has to teach us about how our tests are actually our testimonies.

On continuing to reflect upon her story this week, I realised that her story also has some hidden gems about the 2 ways in which we can subconsciously; inadvertently sabotage our own prayers- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

SOUND GOOD, LOVELY?

Lessons from Anna on Being a House of Prayer

Lessons from Anna on Being a House of Prayer

We first hear of Anna in Luke 2 which details, amongst other things, Jesus':

  • Birth
  • Circumcision
  • Presentation at the temple in Jerusalem.

It is during Jesus and His parents' stint in Jerusalem that Anna makes her debut in Luke 2:36-38, which says:

"Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem".

When I read that scripture it reminds me of Matthew 21 which tells of Jesus' triumphant return to Jerusalem many years later, as a grown man. The part of this passage that I am particularly put in mind of is Matthew 21:12-13:-

"Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’”

Whilst these scriptures speak of contrasting moments in Jesus' life (the beginning of His life and the end of His life respectively), there are some common themes that I would like to explore. Namely, what it means to be a "house of prayer".

Lessons from 30 amazing Women of the Bible

Lessons from 30 amazing Women of the Bible

This week (October 3rd to be exact) was my birthday and- it wasn't just any birthday- it was my 30th! Also, although I didn't actually make it public until late November, this month will mark a year since I started this blog with a view to:

  • Raise the profile of the contributions of the women of the Bible and how the lessons contained in these can be practically applied in our modern spiritual walks
  • Empower Christian women to fully embrace their unique identities and purpose in Christ, free of the stereotypes and traditions that can "so easily best" us

To celebrate, I am going to share my top 30 women of the Bible along with what they taught me either about Christian womanhood/femininity or life in general. So, in alphabetical order, here goes!
