“For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands” (2 Timothy 1:6)

Let’s face it, when it comes to freedom in Christ, we trade our joy for doubt, our tenacity for fear, or (dare I say) our calling for a self-invoked punishment as if we are putting ourselves in timeout until we learn to “behave”. I don’t know about you but I’m tired of defeated living. As women of God, we were made for fire and I want “this little light of mine” to burn wild and free.
This particular piece of writing had me captivated as I was curating it while sitting with my legs curled close to my 20-week baby bump and my left pointer finger twirling a strand of hair as I sat, prayed, pondered and wrote.

From here, you will walk with me down the road of intimacy as I talk to my Heavenly Father.

Jesus left us with two of the greatest commandments: love God and love others, yet many times we let out feelings dictate our response to the command of loving others. It is in our closet relationships we often feel the most pain, isn’t it: betrayal, death, hurts, offenses. A friend may wound you with their words, a loved one’s life may end in death, or a friendship may end with the scar of betrayal and yet Jesus’ commands don’t change or shift based on our feelings. So, how do we love (and keep loving) when pain is expected?

In this three day study, you will immerse yourself in John 13, paying particular attention to how Jesus showed love to his disciple turned betrayer, Judas.
