Restoring Our Womanhood

Scrap of Faith is a Christian Crafting Site dedicated to inspiring women in their faith and in their hobbies.

Each month a new theme will be posted, with verses to encourage, with challenges to inspirire you both in your faith and in your craft. We hope that you will jump on board the journey of Restoring your Womanhood and that God will use these challanges to draw us closer to Him and also give us a purpose in our roles.

We would love to hear from those who are following along so please leave a comment, and share a link to your blog :-) Also on the Scrap of Faith forum there is a weekly thread for encouraging each other through the journey.

Week 3 - Identifying Tempation

The first 4 weeks we are really looking at our relationship with God and His purpose for us. Being daughters of the King, being his princeses it's really important to restore that relationship and look at our own walk before we start "taking it to the streets" and getting our home in order. This week we need to focus on our tempations. What stops us from being able to answer God's call and what stops us from being the Christian woman we desire to be. I know myself I can get so easily distracted with stuff and put off what I know I should be doing.

Verses - Matthew 26:41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
- Luke 11:4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.

Prayer - Ask God to help you identify the temptations in your life. As for strength to overcome those temptations and to "not be lead into temptation" to help remove them from your life.

Application - Record in your journal areas of temptation & some stragegies to overcome them. Also keep going on weeks 1 & 2, praying for your calling to be clearly revealed and working out how you can get into God's word more. Also what temptations keep you from God's word?

Here's a layout share from Week 1 to create your journal. I'm doing mine in a folder, with this slipped in the cover.
