Intentionally Focused – Day 1

ImageI’m beginning the bible study today called, Intentionally Focused.  I pray it helps me look up to Him more!

Today’s SOAP:


Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children ~Ephesians 5:1 NIV


Imitating God requires that we know Him.  You get to know someone by spending time with them and sharing your hopes and dreams as well as your struggles and fears.  I need to read the Bible to know Him better and pray more so I know myself better.  He already knows me better than I know me!


I think we all have areas in our lives we do well at and are truly imitating God.  But I also think that we are all human thus sinners who fall short.  We have areas that are full of darkness/sin.  For me it my family’s finances.  I NEED to get on top of those.  In Ephesians 5:13 it states: “But all things that are exposed are made manifest (obvious) by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”  SOOOOOO, as I grew as a Christian, God’s light within me exposed this dark area.  I’ve always been fearful, anxious, nervous and embarrassed by doing a budget, paying bills, or attempting to take control.  I’m bringing it to the light (God) and KNOWING that it will become a bright area in my life because of it!


Dear God, thank-you for making our darkness light when we bring it to you.  Please help me with my finances as I try to imitate you!  I no longer want to be a slave to the debtor.  I ask for Your peace in this area as Jason and I start to take control.  Please guide us as we take on this task.  I pray this in Jesus’s name, AMEN!
