As 2014 is rapidly winding down, it’s safe to say we are all excited about the newness of the upcoming year. We plan. We make new commitments. We promise to do things better. We declare things will be different. We set goals. We come up with ideas and strategies…. Yup, New Year’s resolutions are what they are.
Now, there is nothing wrong with making New Year’s resolutions. In fact, its a very healthy and responsible thing to do. The only problem is “following through”.
Yes, we all come up with GREAT ideas and WONDERFUL plans, but by the end of January, most of those plans have be left where we got them… at the beginning of the year. 🙁
GOD showed me its all about how you start. The Bible says,
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:24-27 (ESV)
So, if we start our year on a “firm foundation” we will be able to stand on our commitments throughout the year! That’s something to be excited about!!!!
GOD has charged me to help you walk victoriously through 2015. For the month of January, we are going to journey together to help you build a solid foundation for a victorious year!
It is our assignment as a ministry to empower you for purpose. I am asking that you would allow us to help you. Let us be your coach, to help you win the ‘championship’ of a fulfilled resolution! Thats right! FULFILLED. We will be here dedicating our time, prayers and godly teaching for the month of January to keep you focused. We refuse to allow you to miss the blessings of 2015. We refuse to allow you to miss your destiny.
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS REQUIRED OF YOU:
1) Join our Empowerment Calls every Sunday at 8pm EST and every Wednesday at both 7am EST and 9:30pm EST.
712-432-0390 access code 442017#
2) Turn your plate down. What does that mean? It means to fast. A Fast is when you deprive yourself, to show GOD you are serious about hearing and receiving from HIM. It also puts you in a position to grow spiritually, emotionally, and even intellectually.
The fast consists of the following:
A Daniel Fast- that is, beginning Friday, January 2nd, ending on Sunday, February 1st. you are only to eat things that grow from the earth. (ex: vegetables, fruit, grains, oats, honey, nuts, and etc…) You may have water and real fruit and vegetable juices. You may also have herbal tea with honey or nectar. (no refined sugar).
This means you MAY NOT eat meat, sweets, soda, alcohol, bread, pasta, dairy and etc. if it doesn’t grow from the earth DON’T EAT IT!
Also, I am asking that each weak in January you would give up one of these four things. I want you to give all four up, but you may pick which week you will give up which of the following:
~No secular television and radio.
~No going out unless to work, church, grocery store (essential places). Avoid going to parties, movies, shopping (unrelated to household), visiting friends and any where other than the essential places.
~No social media. (You may go on Secret Place Lady Ministry Page, if you need to connect with us, and I will be posting there throughout January.)
~No phone use. (other than work related, ministry related, calling your kids/parents) NO casual phone conversations.
If you are confused or need clarity about any of the above, please contact us via this site or you may pose your question on the first ministry call. Which will be Sunday, January 4th at 8pm EST. (please call in early, at 7:45pm so we may address questions prior to getting started.)
Alright! Let’s do this!!!!!!
I have faith that you can!
