Guilt. It’s a heavy topic and heavy on our shoulders. You used to live by all the rules that man created.
You left all that, but why do you still get this immense pang of guilt when you order non-fat soy late with extra whip or pick up the bottle of wine with the cows with cute parachutes on the label at the supermarket?
Why the guilt? Will it always feel like this?
How do we change our mindset, ditch the guilt and enjoy a Christian lifestyle all at the same time?
You can not truly give anyone faith. Faith comes from trust, from surrender, from a relationship with our Creator. But what we can do, should do, were commanded to do is the great commission…
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” Mathew 28:19

Today’s Challenge will take you from religion to relationship…But in today’s challenge, if you chose to accept it, try reading the bible as we discussed.
Spend as little as 5 minutes reading His word. Pick a spot. It does not have to be in order. In between clients at the salon, I’ll often pop open my pocket bible to psalms and read just one. Then take a few minutes to talk to God about it. What questions do you have for Him? What are your worries? What are your praises? Then do what the Bible tells us and meditate on His word. Think about what you read and let your heart be open to what it says to you. Sometimes it takes days, months years before it all makes sense.
God’s timing is perfect.
Just open your heart to His perfect will.

How many of you are sitting right now hesitant to pick up the bible. We know we are told how it can move in our lives, but it’s intimidating, uncomfortable and we question, will He really speak to us?

Pretty girl, I know you left a strong community. Maybe it was great, and you’re mourning it because it will never be the same now that you left. Perhaps it never felt accepted, and you struggled to fit in. Maybe you are lonely right now. Perhaps you are okay with your friends, but they are not bringing you to God.
