FAITH IN ACTION

 

Today's devotional is going to be a casual letter from me, Britt Goff, as we look behind the scenes. If you didn't catch our Wheatful Woman Retreat recap in last week's Wheatful Wednesday, can I invite you to enjoy the words from our community and photos below?

They are going to give context for my letter today.

The Wheatful Woman Retreat Recap!
We continue to overflow with gratitude for this community.
It's hard to put into words how impactful Wheatful Woman weekend is! Truly! I left feeling abundantly refreshed, encouraged, and inspired! I left CRAVING more (and in some ways felt a little sad that this type of community is not ever-present in my life.) I felt inspired to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, encouraged to seek out and invest in friendships who will push me to walk deeper in my faith and left with a renewed confidence in who the Lord made me to be!
I really needed a day of rest and this provided me with not just physical rest, but rest for my soul. I loved getting to be with people of all ages and walks of life and still feel welcome.
The enemy was already attacking before I even got there, but when I did, I can truly say, I have never felt so welcomed and at peace, about going somewhere I had never been, with people I had never met before, and leaving with a feeling like I had just spent time with some of my closest friends. I will be 1000% honest, coming from an awkward person like myself, confidence can be hard to come by, and had this been any other event, I might have just slipped out because I would have felt so intimidated, but for once, I felt like I was just worthy to belong somewhere, and I will definitely share a video of this, because I truly believe in this calling that God has put in your hearts, with this event, and your ministry! May God bless all of you so abundantly!

As I look through videos and photos from the retreat, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. A dear friend of mine, Tiffany Stein, recently said we are all in a season of expectant hope, a season of "yes, and..."

When interviewing Tiffany for the Wheatful Woman podcast she spoke into her heart behind the Advent Study we are about to release on pre-order for our community in this season. We are all in a season of expectant hope. God is so faithful and so good in the midst of the unknown, hurt, frustrations, and loneliness.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not to evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11


I recently elaborated on what the Lord is doing in my life and through this community on the season two premiere episode of the Wheatful Woman Podcast. I invite you to listen along to hear first-hand where God is calling this community of MIGHTY WHEATFUL WOMAN in this season of 2020. October, November, and December are going to be months of conversations with women I admire and respect, every Friday on the podcast, as they let us into their world, their heart, and what matters most.

I'm just a girl. Just a girl with a business background. Just a girl looking to use my passion to encourage women for good. JUST A GIRL.

But you know what? God wants to use "just a girl" to be HIS GIRL. Let me repeat that. God, wants to use "just a girl" in ways so she might know Him more, be more like Him, and allow other's eyes to see just how GOOD He is.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13


God has recently revealed to me the empowerment I get to walk in when I say YES. When I stand up, use my voice, speak to rooms of women, write a letter. God wants to hold you, empower you, and use what you think is a weakness to remind you every part of you is rooted in GOOD and not just any good, but HIS GOOD. How can we reframe our perceived weakness or shortcoming as something that is good in us? God is waiting to activate the fullest part of you. The part of you that is HIM IN YOU. How can we say yes to that today?

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10



Love y'all, Britt Goff

How often do we find ourselves feeling pulled in too many directions, leaving little of us to truly honor the people and things we choose to devote our time and energy to? When I try to imagine what this strive for “worldly balance” looks like, I imagine a juggler or plate-spinner trying to keep things in perfect rhythm without dropping the ball (or plate, if you will). If you don’t know what I am referencing with plate-spinning, pause your reading and go look it up. Prepare to experience you...

Devotion over Distraction

How often do you find yourself talking to the Lord and all of a sudden catch yourself deep in a thought involving something that you’re anticipating - totally separated from your prayer? I often catch this happening on my commute to or from work, especially on those days that I hit snooze one too many times or try to squeeze in one more thing and don’t prioritize giving the Lord space to join me in the step-by-step parts of the day.

As I write this, I can’t help but imagine God’s presence with me like a loving father who has graciously been trying to help me solve a seemingly-tricky math problem on an assignment that I should have grasped a while ago. I can clearly envision Him giving me a warm smile and gently patting me on the back as the light bulb finally goes off in my head, and I feel so silly for not understanding the overall concept long before now. I hope this message resonates with my friends who grapple with d...
