Monday Momentum

Monday Momentumn – Podcasts

For your Monday Momentum, I wanted to share the podcast that Women on Purpose has been hosting. We’ve recorded several, I wanted to highlight the last two as these two women are those who walk in the room and sense the Spirit and their life of faith before they even say any words.

The first one is Gail Benn, someone who has been an encourager and friend for almost 20 years.

The other one is Liz Miller, who I literally just met and this was our first official conversation.

Such wisdom and faith coming from each.

Monday Momentum – Phil Wickham

For your Monday Momentum today, I wanted to share three songs that have been on repeat for the past couple weeks.  Especially leading up to Akron Women on Purpose!  All of them are from one of my favorite worship leaders, Phil Wickham.

First one is “Your Love Awakens Me.”
The lines that I kept repeating are below.  I loved this idea that it’s God’s love in us that awakens us!

You called me out of the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name and then my heart came alive
Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens

The next one is “Mercy.”
These lines continued to play in my head as I prayed about all the women coming to Akron Women on Purpose.  Thinking about 550 women telling THIS story, that it makes dead men live and that we could change our world with this message!

To love like He loves and give like he gives
To tell the story that makes dead men live
And that’s what it takes if we’re gonna change the world

And the last one “Children of God.”
This one I loved thinking bout us being children of God standing together!

We are believers
All our hope in the risen one
And we are soldiers
We’re fighting with faith and love
And we are pilgrims
on the journey to reach our homes
Standing together
We are the children of God

Monday Momentum

This… I love this talk in particular because she talks about three things I have been challenged to do before I heard this, but sometimes have felt “extreme” for doing them.

  1.  Pay attention to what you put in your mind “Jesus died on the cross for things we willingly watch on tv.”
  2. The more time we engage God the more we want to engage God!  Don’t engage just enough to get through the day.
  3. Continue to sacrifice, for His glory.

Monday Momentum – We are free!

For freedom Christ as set us free (Gal 5:1)  God has continued to show me the freedom that Christ really does give.  I have been obsessed with this song since I heard it a few weeks ago!

Christine Cain is on fire in this message.  So much about freedom, about doing whatever it takes for others to know Jesus and to realize people aren’t numbers!  So good!

Here’s your Monday Momentum.

Monday Momentum – “Fear Not”

Over the summer I was out with my dear friend Kara, as we walked and talked I started to share about some of my own struggles and insecurities that had been happening during that time.  Through a serious of questions and conversations it became clear that the root of most of those situations was fear.  Then Kara asked me a question that I wrestled with for weeks, “do you know fear is an idol?”  I had thought about potential idols in my life with tangible things like money, houses, etc.  Even intangible things like status, jobs, or what people think of me.  But never had it dawned on me that fear could be one, and in that moment I realized it was.  Over the next several months God freed me from that, which is an amazing story coming in another blog.  During that time I came across this song, and the explanation of it.
