Inspired by . . . focus


I'm following along with Good Morning Girls and their 8-week study entitled Intentionally Focused.

Here's a quick overview of the study:

Week One – Intentionally Focused

Week Two – Your Spiritual Life

Week Three – Your Mind

Week Four – Your Marriage

Week Five – Your Friendships

Week Six – Your Children

Week Seven – Your Ministries

Week Eight – Your Health





It's been an amazing study so far – and we're just getting started!

Here's a snapshot of what God's been teaching us. . . .

Week one gave us the foundation of our focus: JESUS

Everything else flows out from who we are in CHRIST.

  • We are His children – we should act like Him. (Eph 5:1-16)
  • Our time here is limited (Psalm 90)
  • Pursue holiness (Heb 12)
  • Persevere by faith (Phil 3:12-14)




Week two focused on our Spiritual Life. We cannot hope to achieve any of the things from week one if our souls are starving and lack living water. We must remain connected to Jesus, the vine, to bear spiritual fruit. Apart from Him we can do nothing.

  • Pray (Luke 5:16, Mark 1:35)
  • Time with Jesus feeds our soul. He is our bread, light, water, our {protector} shepherd (John 6:35, 8:12, 10:11, 14:6)
  • Jesus satisfies (John 4:1-14)
  • God's word is necessary for right thinking (Heb 4:12-13)
  • God's love is better than life. The only true response is to praise Him (Psalm 63:1-8)




We can all benefit from a little re focusing. Especially when it comes to our faith. It's easy to be complacent and even apathetic when it comes to God.


‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.

So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.' (Rev. 3:15-16)

There is a warning here. It is time to re focus and become intentional about the things of God.

The groups for this session are all full, but if you're interested, you can sign up on the Good Morning Girls website to get the study materials for free, and then follow along on their Facebook page!
