Ask God First

Ask God First

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” - Matthew 6:33

Do you remember the search engine site Ask Jeeves? Well, I’m challenging us to ask Jesus. One of the beautiful parts of being a Christian is that we get to boldly and frequently approach the throne of God with our thoughts, questions, and concerns, no matter how big or small they may seem. 

God cares just as much about the little stuff going on as he does the miracles He creates. He wants us to talk to him like a friend, and seek His help like a parent. He wants to hear about our need for energy when we’re feeling zapped and reaching for that second (or fourth) cup of coffee. He wants to know if we’re feeling overwhelmed and how we need relief. He wants to rescue our minds and hearts when you’re drowning in a sea of ambiguity and unknowns. God wants all of us. Not just the big or medium or small moments. He wants us to have a full, transparent, tell-all relationship with Him. 

Before we call our best friend, let’s call on God. Before we type our questions into an app, let’s seek wisdom from the God who knows and created all. Before we complain, let's go to God and tell Him what’s on our hearts, open and ready to hear Him breathe truth, peace, and clarity into us. God is not only mighty to save; He is mighty to answer. We can rest in the assurance that He can be trusted with every aspect our lives, no matter how minuscule the tasks may seem. He is an ever-present help and more than that, He’s the best listener. Patient, kind, graceful and full of love. He will not only listen; He will actually direct our paths. A companion who listens well first and then gives the best advice? God is the friend we long to be! 

Weekly Challenge: Let’s embark together on this challenge to Ask Him First for a week, and see how our trust, hope and faith grows in these seven days.

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE. Each year, you are faithful. Each year, you bring the women that need deep refresh, soul rest, and a meaningful reset. With the theme of “KNOWN”, we agree that you want these women to feel seen. All they have to do is show up to the weekend, and you will do the rest of the work! What freedom and comfort that b...

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
