CHANGES: The NEWNESS of July

Dear Readers,

For those of you who are familiar with my blog (StephanieSpeaksOn) you would know that I am a sporadic blogger *covers face*
A lot has happened in 2014 (Jan to June) and I will be updating you all on some of these eventful happenings in due time……

But today, on the 1st July, I wanted to encourage us all…

Just to put some context into this post, my church hosts an annual conference/fast each June entitled “Pursuit of God” aka POG. This year, the fast lasted the entire month, rather than the usual 21 days.

I wrote a message earlier for those who had been fasting and praying this month and just wanted to share it with you all:

Praise God for the completion of POG! We have given ourselves to seeking His face and practicing His presence for the entire month.
Can I just encourage you to continue? This is the beginning of an even greater walk with Christ.
Speaking of new beginnings, I cannot shake the feeling that we have entered a new place spiritually, not just the end of a calendar month, but the end of old habits and the beginning of our new and seriously improved walk with Christ (I use the term “walk” lightly, as I know many of us are chasing after Him)

Let our prayer point today and throughout this week be one of THANKSGIVING.

Thank God.

Just thank Him.

No need to say anything other than ‘thank you’ for what He has done, what He IS doing and what He is about to do.

If you know He is kind say thank you.
If you know He is faithful say thank you.
If you are expectant for His good plans yet to be revealed, say thank you.

O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. -Psalms 65:2

Let’s be encouraged – July is going to be an excellent month. More updates to come….
