Week 5: Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted

Hello ladies,

I have to start this blog by thanking all the ladies who helped decorate our Vineyard for Christmas.  The Christmas trees and poinsettias look amazing.  Thank you so much for being God’s faithful servants.

I’ll start by talking about our DVD session.  Priscilla Shirer started by continuing to talk to us about the promises that come from living a life of complete obedience to God no matter how hard or impossible the task before us might look.  We learned that when we choose to go with God, when our life is divinely intervened, we are in fact getting “an exceedingly great opportunity”.  An opportunity to see God do the impossible, whether that impossible is redeeming the part of our lives we thought were wasted or seeing God work through us in miraculous ways.

The second promise we get is His “divine anointing”.  I love this the most because like Priscilla, I don’t just want God in me , I want him “on” me.  I want those who come in contact with me to sense the presence of God on me.  For his fruit, as listed in Galatians 5:22-23, to be evident in the way I act toward all. I want “The Holy Spirit” to mark me so that unbelievers will know I serve a different God.  I want leave the sweet aroma of Jesus behind me, so that I can lead others to the one they have been waiting for.

The last promise to those who yield to God in complete surrender is “supernatural results”.  She went on to describe to us what supernatural results look like: It is  “when you didn’t do anything and still things got done; its when you stand back and say “how did that get done”; its when you walk around the walls of Jericho and you turn around and the walls are falling down.” I’m grateful that we can anticipate supernatural results when we lay our battle weapons down, put our spiritual armor on and choose obedience.

It was a great night.  We were blessed by stories of God’s redeeming power and beauty from ashes stories. It mirrored our homework from Week Four, where we read and studied the lives of Aaran, Sarah and Peter’s. God was merciful to them and gave them a second chance and He will do the same with us.

Here are my “Navigational tools” from Week Four”, don’t forget to post yours:

Day 1.  God is merciful and compassionate

Day 2.  My “second chance” story can be a source of encouragement to others.

Day 3.  I need to obey God fully even if it will take longer or tame more effort.

Day 4.  I must move forward with what God has asked of me even if I don’t have all the details.

Day 5.  Obedience is better than sacrifice.

Thank you for persevering with me loved one.  You have not wasted your time.  I’m looking forward to reading your comments on our time together and in your your homework time.

Georgina.

    Hello Georgina,
    Thank you for this Blog it was nice to get something different in the box today.
    I live in NY and have friends in Key West we own land on Big pine and hope to some day live there, of course we know about the red tape and ect… So far our faith has led us to the situation in life that we are in. We try to pray about all of our decision making, as we trust the Lord to direct our path in everything we do. If the Lord wills our dream will come true if not we will do as we believe is what he wants for us.
    Please post pics of the church decor for Christmas i would love to see what you all have done.
    Having complete obedience can be difficult at times with the world tempting us to do wrong things daily.
    I try to remember the words in the Lords prayer Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. This helps me to know he is hearing and helping me each day of my life.
    I love the idea of being a sweet aroma to others, this reminds me of how we must embrace our brokeness, just as the alabaster must be broke to release it’s fragrance so must we be.
    As for the Supernatural… I can’t help but think of how soviergn our Lord God is. He is soviergn of all realms This is a great and might power we have access to through our inhieritance in Christ. How wonderful he is to do for us supernaturally and perfectly timed. If only we could express this amazing gift that comes with our surrender to him.
    I am coming into this blog not really knowing what is up with the homework and study but I will be glad to share as I become more aware of the information and wisdom provided. Thanks Ladies.
    Blessings
    Lisa

    Hi Lisa,
    Welcome to our blog. It was nice to read your comments and I’m glad it was something that inspired you to share your insights. If you are interested, this page has a link located at the top of this page called “Study Materials” where you can go to get information on the material we are studying. If you so wish, this link allows you to purchase the material we are studying. You can even hear the DVD sessions online. Again, thanks for sharing. I like your analogy of the alabaster. Our greatest ministry will come out of our greatest pain.
    God Blessing on You and Yours,
    Georgina

    Georgina, You are a wonderful writer.

    Day One: Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time, it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it for it will certainly come, it will not delay. (This means to me don’t give up on God. He is constant when we aren’t)
    Day Two: God saves us from the pit and then makes sure we are taken care of to accomplish his plan, which includes being a testament of His love.
    Day Three: Our second chance brings us full circle to the place where we should choose full obedience.
    Day Four: If we listen to the Holy Spirit, he will guide. If we will follow the Holy Spirit He will lead. The result is a life well lived and a journey well taken.
    Day Five: Obedience is better than sacrifice. Grace is a gift.

    I do not leave many remarks, but i did some searching and wound up here Week 5:
    Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted | Vineyard Women’s Ministry.
    And I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it simply me or does it give the impression like some
    of the responses appear like left by brain dead
    visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls of your shared pages
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

So if I’m at You are here: Tutorials e2€ba The Visitors e2€ba Root and I click on the Create New Page on that page and I’ll be creating a new page in visitors/tutorials. If you get what I mean This makes life so much easier. Thank you

  7. One such option is to repay the borrowed amount through credit card.
    It is really amazing and true to get help on time with such type of companies,
    institutions etc. There are no credit bureau reports on your payday loans, never an application fee,
    and of course, no credit checks.

    This piece of writing will help the internet users for creating new weblog or even a blog from start
    to end.

  9. Ask others if they have ever used the limo services you are thinking about hiring.

    In terms of personal views, the worst thing that you can find in a
    reporter is prejudice; in terms of personal proclivities, the worst things that you can find is a judgmental attitude; and
    in terms of attention span, the worst thing that you can find is no tolerance for boredom.

    Thanks to the increase in popularity of satellite
    TV, dealers have sprung up all over the Internet promising the best deals, the best service, and everything else under the
    sun.
