Grace for New Beginnings

January and September are months of new beginnings. Obviously on January 1 we mark the start of a new year with new or renewed commitments. For many of us September has a similar feel. A new fiscal year for some, a new school year for many. How well I fondly remember as a child shopping for a new lunch box, pencil case and new shoes for the beginning of school.

Whether you teach, are a student, or a mom bracing for the juggling of extra-curricular activities where do you find your peace as you prepare for the pressures of the new school year? Is your workplace making changes that affect you? Are you feeling the pinch from having a new budget to work within? Or does September begin the 120 day countdown to holiday deadlines and demands?

There is grace for all this and more. Grace is God’s kindness, favor and blessing that we do not deserve. In fact, in light of our sin against a holy God, we deserve the opposite of blessing. We deserve God’s wrath and judgment. BUT GOD shows his love to us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Jesus took our record of sin upon himself and gave to us his record of righteousness. AMAZING GRACE!!

If Christ did that for us, how will he not also with him freely give us all things that we need? Romans 8:32) To help explain this wonderful truth Tim has used this illustration: suppose a mom spends hours shopping online for the best outfits, backpack, laptop, and phone for their child to prepare them for the school year, but denies the child’s request for a new No.2 pencil. We would think this is crazy!! How could a mom spend all that time, labor and love to provide so much for a child but not have anything left for a pencil?

So it is with our Father in heaven. Through Christ we have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness. (2 Peter 1:3) Then, let us come boldly to the Throne of Grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16).

This includes our need for responding to the September morning alarm clock, the hectic schedules, the patience to drive to work behind a school bus with its frequent stops, the school work and workplace challenges, budget constraints, the upcoming holiday angst. God has mercy and grace for it all.

We don’t deserve it but it is there for us. Let us go to our Father and ask him for all that concerns us today and everyday.

Encouragement from Gayline Shorey:

Good afternoon, Risen Women of Risen Hope Church.

I have returned to Facebook for the sole purpose of encouragement. I am feeling drawn to write to you this morning to share a couple of thoughts. But before I do I want to say, “I MISS YOU.” I miss each and every one of you and I am praying for you. If I can pray for any of you specifically please feel free to private message me.

And I’ll ask you to pray for me. By God’s grace I am doing well. I am feeling strong in body and in spirit. However, I must admit, in this last week I have felt real tremors run through my being. This is a fearful time we are living in and I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t feel some fear. How are you doing? What are we to do with our fear?

Back in December I sensed the Holy Spirit speaking to me and telling me to “draw near.” We know from God’s word in many places but in particular in James 4:6 where we read, “But he [God] gives more grace. Therefore it says, God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.”

Submit to God. Resist the devil. Draw near to God.

I believe the Lord was telling me to give more focused attention to God’s word and prayer. So I began a season of slowly reading, meditating and praying over one psalm a day. Also I have combined that with focused memorizing the 1st chapter of Colossian.

This has been so good for my soul. Are you drawing near to the Throne of Grace? How are you drawing near?

Along with the above I have been listening to Poor Bishop Hooper “Every Psalm”. The style may not appeal to everyone but for me, the simplicity of these renderings of the psalms makes it easy for me to recall them when my mind starts to wander into fear and when I cannot sleep. This musical married duo takes the main idea of a psalm and develops a simple meditative song. I would encourage you to check these out.

There is also the psalms project Tim has been working on. A different style but also very very good (in my unbiased opinion). Tim attempts to follow each psalm as close to line by line as possible. He then puts his lyrics to the music of an old hymn. This sometimes makes for a very long song but it is very well worth the time and meditation.

Would anyone want to join me in memorizing Colossians 1? I chose this chapter (and maybe the first 3 chapters if my brain allows) because it is very Christ centered. Colossians 1:15 “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” and then verses 5-10 tell us what to “put off” and verses 12-17 gives us a glorious pattern to follow for experiences harmony to the Glory of God.

Will you pray for me that I will be able to apply myself to this? Will you pray that I will consistently step away from what is swirling around me, and “draw near” and “be still” (ps. 46) in God’s presence. And if you would like prayer I would be very pleased to pray for you, for whatever concerns you.

by Grace Alone,

Gayline

We would not have guessed that our gatherings would still be virtual at this point, but here we are. 😏

Still, last night was so good! Africa did a phenomenal job teaching through Ephesians 5 for us. What a rich time in the Word together!

We dig into Ephesians 6 at our next gathering in November. Stay tuned!

From Kimberly Dunivan Parris:

Hey Mommas in the Philadelphia to Drexel Hill Area:

As the new school year approaches with all of its uncertainty, I'm wondering if anyone would need help with childcare, school work, and/or tutoring. I'm considering on helping relieve some stress on a few working parents for either a few days or hours per week. (Compensation would be reasonable and dependent upon need, etc.)

While I'm not a credited teacher, I do have quite a bit of experience with childcare and tutoring. I currently live in Center City and have a car to get from here to you.

Would anyone be interested in this? Especially Mommas from Risen Hope Church Risen Women's Ministry

This post is just to see if there would be a need, as I am also considering looking into getting a full time graphic design job.

Please comment or DM me if your interested.

Thanks y'all!

Tomorrow at 7:30pm!! See you on Zoom!

While we would have loved to meet in person, we count it a gift of God's grace that we could gather again virtually this evening with Teresa teaching a great message from Ephesians 3.

As we battle weariness during this pandemic season and the daily realities of living in a dark and sinful world, we are encouraged that our sovereign King holds us fast.

Dear sisters, we are finishing up week 4 of our Stay-at-Home order and social distancing. How are you? Many of us have been blessed by this time of connection, revival, and rest while some have had difficulty with isolation, fear, and instability. Wherever you are and whatever state you’re in, please know that we are praying for you!

In times like these, we need God’s Word for direction, for comfort, for encouragement, for HOPE! We look forward to the day we will see each other again and be able to greet one another with a warm embrace. Until then, let us know how you’re doing and any prayer requests you might have.

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬ I just love this verse. It speaks to our identity and our purpose in Christ Jesus. We are His workmanship, His creation, His possession, His unique design, created in Christ Jesus for good works. That means all the work God has called us to, every good work He has for us to do in this life, has been prepared, accomplished, and sealed in Christ even before the world began. The ministry, the marriage, the motherhood, the mentoring, the service, every good work He has called us to has already been established. So don’t fret my sisters. Our perfect purpose is rooted in the perfection of the Son. But we have to do our part... walk in it! Walk in purpose today knowing you’re not walking blindly or alone. That’s worthy of rejoicing! #Ephesians #biblestudy #womenoftheWord
