Week 6 Homework | Breaking Free

Welcome to Week 6!
To all my faithful readers, I gotta tell ya, I can't believe how this blog has been my prayer to help each of you in some little tidbit of a way!  I love you dearly.  To my girls at church, you have stolen my heart.  There is nothing I would rather do than to be on this journey with you. *sniff.
Ok....I purposely didn't post day one yesterday.  The good Lord was dealing with me about a certain something, I had to prayerfully consider every answer throughout my homework and wanted to search my heart and mind before lamelessly posting.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is; There is freedom!"
Day 1

SO this afternoon as I was sitting in my front yard watching the kids play baseball,
I let my bible fall open to Isaiah 61 and began reciting the memory verse for the week.
Isaiah 61:3...
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes!
A few years ago, I made the above bookmark and printed the words to the song
At the Foot of the Cross (Ashes for Beauty)!
Girls, this very verse, this very song based on this verse has helped free me from various past struggles of bondage. I prefer the KJV.  It works, this is a powerful verse, a true word that the Lord is just waiting for our bibles to fall open to.  Cling to it and remember you and I are Princesses of the One and Only King!

Now to the homework....
1. Mordecai
found out the plan to kill Jews

2. Job
look down about himself, but continued to be strong in faith and pray.

3. Vision
of Jerusalems 70 yr. desolation

4. personal
I think we will always immediately be cautious and after experiencing a wounded heart, the chances of gaining complete trust again is for the Lord to accomplish alone!  I am the result of this truth.
I believe that what we think we can control by being heavily guarded and hateful....
The Lord turns into healing, trusting and belief.

5. her brothers advice
Total sadness ... evenually the brother gets revenge for the mistreated sister, but none the less the pain and despair she lived with is heart pounding.
"The Lord will fight for the broken hearted!"

Day 2

"I delight greatly in the LORD,
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels."
Isaiah 61:10

1. read, write, make your own bookmark, memorize
Isaiah 61:3 in your favorite version.

2. personal
Just using my imagination here...but....
A feeling of unspeakable joy,
contentment, peace, love, security,
a garment made from array of pinks,
a blooming state of "happy" feels the air,
A robe of flowers like spring,
the aroma of a garden,
walking among jewels clear as glass with the reflection bouncing of a waterfall.

3. Father,
I am in awe of YOUR word,
YOUR truth captivates me.
May you surround me continually until
I meet you face to face.

4. a bride
doesn't carry the wife role and responsibilites until the home is created.

Day 3
To Be Beautiful!
"How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful!"
Song of Songs 4:1

1. 4 girl dreams
live happily ever after

2. personal
From a very young age, I knew I was different than 'everyone else's normal'.
Not only was I an unmatched, uncoordinated, no sense of beauty or fashion little girl.  I knew without a doubt....I had a calling on my life.  Unfortuantely a broken home stole my chances of fulfilling that calling, whatever it was.  I had no idea, I just knew that 'chance' had been ripped straight from my heart.
{As I look back I wish I could know what I know now!}

3. my lover

10. Song of Songs 5:10-16 MSG
My dear lover glows with health—
red-blooded, radiant!
He's one in a million.
There's no one quite like him!
My golden one, pure and untarnished,
with raven black curls tumbling across his shoulders.
His eyes are like doves, soft and bright,
but deep-set, brimming with meaning, like wells of water.
His face is rugged, his beard smells like sage,
His voice, his words, warm and reassuring.
Fine muscles ripple beneath his skin,
quiet and beautiful.
His torso is the work of a sculptor,
hard and smooth as ivory.
He stands tall, like a cedar,
strong and deep-rooted,
A rugged mountain of a man,
aromatic with wood and stone.
His words are kisses, his kisses words.
Everything about him delights me, thrills me
through and through!
10. mountainside
hiding, longing to see your face and to hear your voice.
11. Ecclesiastes 8:1
"Wisdom brightens a man's face and changes its hard appearance." NIV

and gives you a smile.  CEV

12. respond to todays lesson
Day 4
To Be Fruitful
Isaiah 54:1
"Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child;
burst into song shout for joy, you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband says the LORD."

1. Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.

2. fruitful
have children

3. she was upright in the sight of God,
observing all the Lords commandments

4. delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart

5. Yes
To make my answer a bit confusing but I pray it will somewhat enlighten you.
When desire and the Lords will DO NOT colllide, that is the feeling I believe we are discussing here.
However, when we have that feeling, we MUST pray, pray, pray and pray until the LORD answers.
The enemy is always at work and will use anything he can to hinder that collosion from every occuring and reoccuring.

6. children...
sense of fulfillment
to give to something other than self
to care and nuture
caring on family name

7. Isaiah 54:1-5
a woman that never had children...
may very well have taught and mentored many instead, and the result is having many more 'spiritual' children than a married woman.

8. compare and contrast
fruitful-multiply ....... disciples of many-training and teaching them
fruitful-mulitiply ...... there was a persecution against believers however teaching, mentoring and miracles took place.

9. older woman
mentor the younger ones

10. personal
Me, I have many names I could write down whom have influenced my spiritual walk all my life.

11.  Yes
My church girls...(YOU)

Day 5

To Live Happily Ever After
"Come and share your master's happiness!"
Matthew 25:21

1. I believe
we all could list many miracles and stories of hope and just plain 'God' moments in our lives.  He is always with us even when we don't realize it.
1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV
However, as it is written:
"No eye has seen, 
no ear has heard, 
no mind has conceived

4. They will be blessed

5. personal
For me,  releasing a heavy weight around my neck, that had been there for way to many years...
yes years...I wasted so many years to the defeat of depression, despair, and fear.
So forgiveness, renewing a broken relationship was a blessing and was all God and part of his ultimate plan for my life--but let me say...it was the most difficult experience...God's way isn't always the easiest, but this I know..IT IS THE BEST!

6.  Joy.
So that my joy will be with you.

Let your light shine on me.
You have filled my heart with greater joy.
I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for You alone,
O Lord,
make me dwell in safety!
Ps 4:6-8

I cannot wait to see you girls.

If God doesn't guard the city,
the night watchman might as well nap.
It's useless to rise early and go to bed late,
and work your worried fingers to the bone.
Don't you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves?
Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
The fruit of the womb is a generous legacy?
Like a warrior's fistful of arrows

Week 4 Homework | Breaking Free

Welcome to week four girls. 
We are going to begin digging up some of the positive and negatives from our family history. 
Things that have been passed down to us. 
Ready to face them and cling to only the positive?
Day 1
Todays lesson is a bit lengthy and requires some digging and searching your family's background.
Don't stress or overwhelm yourself....
If you find yourself uncomfortable; try to fill in the positive.

1. Part of my family since I can remember
Almost immune to the behavior.

Help my soul to find rest in You alone;
my hope come from You.
You alone are my rock and my salvation;
You are my fortress,
I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on You;
You, God, are my mighty rock, my refuge.
Help me to trust in You at all times.
Remind me to pour out my heart to You,
for You,
are my refuge.
Psalm 62:5-8

Day 2

1. negative postitive dishonor accept

2. land of slavery...

3. "I don't have to follow the cycle of bondage, I have inherited."  Ex 20:4-6 MSG
No carved gods of any size, shape or form of anything whatever, whether of things that fly or walk or swim.  Don't bow down to them and don't serve them because I am God, you God and I'm a most jealous God, punishing the children for any sins their parents pass on to them to the third, and yes, even to the fourth generation of those who hate me.  But I'm unswervingly loyal to the thousands who love me and keep my commandments.

4.  God is jealous for us- wanting us to have whats right and best.

6. Bondage  not only affects and punishes my children but I will be held accountable for my actions and my own choices in how I deal with my generational bondage.

7. I believe I as a parent should do all I can to remove generational bondage and teach them to walk with freedom in Christ.  After all it is not their fault they were born into disfunction.  They are merely the victim.  I believe the biggest mistake I could make is keep thinking of myself as the victim....I chose how to deal with my familys disfunction in my own way and learned from it....Things change when I started thinking I am not the victim anymore, My children are and with that I must do all I can to guide them as a means to direct them away from their grandparents and parents bondage!  Everyone of us has 'stuff' - Every family has 'stuff' - Our 'stuff' cannot be avoided.  However, I can choose to break free from generational bondage once and for all, for my childrens sake!

The focus of my letter wasn't on punishing the offender but on getting you to take responsibility for the health of the church.  So if you forgive him, I forgive him.  Don't think I'm carrying around a list of personal grudges.  The fact is that I'm joining in with your forgiveness, as Christ is with us, guiding us.  After all, we don't want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief--we're not oblivious to his sly ways!

Lord, Help me to take up the shield of faith,  with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Lord,  Help me to take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God.

Lord,  Help me to pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
Lord,  and above all,  help me to be alert and always keep on praying!

Day 4

1. Repent and Live!

2. Righteous - Unrighteous Ezekiel 18
vs. 9 a righteous man will surely live.

I am called to be free.
Guide me to use my freedom you have given me-

Day 5
Good morning girls!
Well, as you see I skipped posting day five yesterday!
I have no excuse.  It was one of those... I'll do it later moments, that turned into a ...
I'll do it in the morning moments! So if you were checking yesterday...I hope you are able to take a quick check this morning before we meet at the church!
This week of homework seems to go fitting with the fact that it is Valentine's week!
If you are anything like me, your family goes nuts when it comes to any excuse to get a dose of chocolate!  My kids are not supplied with candy on a regular basis so when they can indulge themselves it is a real treat!
Which puts into perspective the fact that the Lord supplies all the 'sweet treats' we need.  But when He wants to pass them out.  The Lord's timing is perfect.  So like a child who desires 'treats' all the time, if I have control and accept moderation then the blessings the Lord gives me will be even more satisfying! As well as the fact that based on His love for me, He will not give me something that He knows I am not ready for. :)

"I have revealed and saved and proclaimed-
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,
declares the Lord,
that I am God.
Yes, and from ancient days I am he"
Isaiah 43:12-13 NIV

"You are my witnesses the Lord's declaration-
and My servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He.
No god was formed before Me,
and there will be none after Me.
I, I am the LORD,
and there is no other Savior but Me.
I alone declared, saved, and proclaimed-
and not some foreign god among you.
So you are My witnesses-
the LORD's declaration-
and I am God.
Also, from today on I am He (alone),
and no one can take (anything) from My hand.
I act, and who can reverse it?"
Isaiah 43:10-13 HCSB

1. To destroy me-
To put the chains back on me. To prey on my weaknesses.

2. Ancient of days
"Thrones were set in place and The Old One sat down.
his robes were white as snow,
his hair was white like wool.
His throne was flaming with fire,
its wheels blazing.
A river of fire poured out of the throne.
Thousands upon thousands served him,
tens of thousands attended him.
The courtroom was called to order,
and the books were opened."
Daniel 7:9-10 MSG

3. Ancient of Days
All the Lord stands for
The creator of all things
The one and only
The one before all

4. Psalm 78 HCSB
My people, hear my instruction;
listen to what I say.
I will declare wise sayings;
I will speak mysteries from the past-
things we have heard and known and that our fathers have passed down to us.
We must not hide them from our children,
but must tell a future generation the praises of the LORD,
His might, and the wonderful works he has performed.
He established a testimony in Jacob and set up a law in Israel,
which He commanded our fathers to teach to their children-
so that a future generation-
children yet to be born- might know.
They were to rise and tell their children
so that they might put their confidence in God and not forget God's works,
but keep His commandments.
Then they would not be like their fathers,
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
a gerneration whose heart was not loyal
and whose spirit was not faithful to God.

5. To walk with the Lord
and have unwavering thoughts, sound minds, and the knowledge of what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ at a very young age!
