The book of James
This week I am starting something new in my life with Resonate Community. I am going to be a part of a Life Transformation Group (LTG groups). It's me and two other gals, Cindy and Ruth. I couldn't be happier to have these two girls in my life! We are starting in the book of James and we will meet once every other week to talk about what we have read and to also pray for one another. This morning I woke up with Cindy and Ruth heavy on my heart. I am excited to see miracles take place in their lives and I get to be a part of it by praying for them. I truly believe that the three of us will experience God in an incredible way.

Matthew 18:19-20 Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.

Ecclesiastes4:9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up.But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

I think a good start is important when you commit to doing something daily. We are committed to reading the Word daily. We will not finish a book in the bible or move on to something new until all three of us have finished. So if one falls behind, we read with them, even if we have already read it. Cindy suggested the book of James and I think that is a perfect way to start. The book of James is something I always read when I am facing trials or change and what a perfect way to start. It's a short book but I look forward to reading one chapter a day and praying that God will open my eyes to the verses in a brand new way. I'm praying for revelation in my own life and for my friends.

This morning I really prayed that God would bring these ladies to mind constantly. I want to stand in the gap for them and pray for their husbands and children. And I hope they do the same for me. I can't do this alone so having them by my side will sure help in my daily walk.

So if you are struggling with your daily Bible reading and need a little more encouragement or accountability, you can come here daily. I will be talking about the book of James for the next five days. It's a short book so we have decided to read one chapter a day. Not sure what we will read next but I am excited about starting here.

Join us if you would like! I did this last year with the book of John through my blog and it was incredible! So come along if you need to get in the habit of reading the word daily. You will be amazed at the strength that comes your way by making the Word of God a part of your daily routine.

I'll be back later to post some thoughts on James, chapter one.
