FOLLOW THE AGENDA

At my job, we have a staff meeting almost every Tuesday afternoon. For each meeting, an agenda must been sent out 24 hours beforehand so the staff is aware of what will be discussed. As we sit through the meeting, the principal goes through the list to discuss the predetermined topics. However, at almost every meeting, we find ourselves discussing something not on the agenda. Sometimes, we get so distracted with the side topic, that we never seem to get the entire agenda accomplished! 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
— ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Friends, God has an agenda for your life! He has plans to prosper us and use us in a great way! However, it is up to us to know the agenda so we can identify when we are getting off course. Distractions and deception will come, just as Jessica reminded us this past Thursday in her message at Unearthed. So, we must realize that we can only identify the distractions if we understand the agenda that God has for our lives! 

What is God’s plan for your life? It’s time to unearth His agenda! His will is that you pray to and praise His name! (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) He asks you to shine His light! He wants you to have peace! His desire is that you prosper in all you do! He works all things out for the good! Ladies, He gave us His agenda a long time ago through His word. If you are faced with something that does not match up with what He says, don’t let it distract you! Look to His word and be defined as the daughter that you are!

What an amazing week it was at Fashion! We've seen so much growth, as God continues to unearth hidden treasures in our lives! We hope that you will keep being a part of journeying with the girls! In Person: We meet every Thursday 930-1130am here at Destiny Church's east campus. In a Group: Many small groups are available to join during the week. Out of the Area: you can also watch the replay of the weekly messages on our YouTube channel.  We love you, we believe in you, and we can't wait to see you next time at Fashion, where we love to live and live to love. 

USE IT OR LOSE IT

USE IT OR LOSE IT

"Use it or lose it!" I’ve heard this statement all my life, and let’s be honest we’ve probably said it to others or maybe even to ourselves at point. It basically means if we don’t use the gifts or talents we’ve got, we will eventually lose them. Think about our muscles, if you don’t build them up by doing some sort of strength training you will lose your muscles! Over time they will lose the definition and physique they were designed with. Without building them up we become flabby and weak. The hands of time are always ticking away but no matter what we have to know that God is not done with us yet!  As long as we have breath we will praise Him, we will serve His people, and we will make a difference for the Kingdom of God!

PILE OF POTENTIAL

PILE OF POTENTIAL

We all have had that moment when we look at our closets and say “I have nothing to wear.” Of course, there clearly a full closet of clothes sitting in front of us, but still we see nothing. I can’t even count how many times I have tried to pull a fast one on my husband, hoping I’d get a shopping trip! After a few tries and not getting that quick run to Nordstrom I learned I have to come up with something! I used to see a bunch of old clothes but now I've learned to see it as a pile of potential!

HIDE THE FEBREZE

HIDE THE FEBREZE

Isn’t that so much like our life when we keep secrets and try to cover them up!? Recently I have been dealing with some feelings of failure inside. I felt like I wasn’t doing well in any area of my life (work, marriage, parenting, pastoring, etc...) However, every time someone would ask me how I'm doing, I would spray the Febreze and say “I’m good!" But the thoughts inside continued to grow and eventually, I broke. On the way to work one day I cried in my car and begged the Lord to help me be better.
