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

Ladies, the time is now! Walk boldly in the calling placed over your life. Navigating life’s many playgrounds can often be challenging. Do not avoid the challenge, take it on! NOTHING is too tough/hard for Our God. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13. HE IS OUR STRENGTH! We do not need to be perfect to navigate, simply remain obedient to His calling. He will strengthen us as we navigate life’s playgrounds.

His Strength In Our Weakness

October 14, 2020

If we just loosen the grip of our stoic pride, you can hear God’s grace, mercy, and forgiveness whisper to you, “follow me, I’m on your side.”The Bible clearly tells us to “hold on to instruction” and for us to “not let it go”. His promise in return is that we won’t be led astray when we walk the path on His terms and in His way. We must cling fast to our mission to pursue righteousness to the very end and firmly trust (despite the obstacles or pain we may face), that He will work it out for ...

How To Read Your Bible (When You Don't Know Where To Start)

Do you sometimes find it hard to read your Bible? Does the thought of digging into scripture ever intimidate you?⁠⁠If so, you’re not alone.⁠⁠I was talking to a friend of mine a few weeks ago who is newer in her walk with Jesus, and she made a great point in our conversation.⁠⁠“There’s no guidebook to know how to read your Bible. I wish God could tell me exactly what to do and the best verses to read to get the most out of my time with Him.” ⁠⁠Yep. I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all been ...
