My Blessing ~ Group 25

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. 
Ecclesiastes 4:9

While reading "Stressed-Less Living by Tracie Miles" my eyes have been opened to the stress that I have been avoiding dealing with. I am under a ton of stress at my job, stress that has been affecting my health for quiet some time now. Not only my health but my heart too - Spiritual!

This stress has caused me to want to crawl under the sheets some mornings and not get up. It has caused negative feelings, sadness, and stomach turning feelings of sickness every morning driving to work ~ Ouch! 

Well I realized this past couple weeks that I have this incredible blessing in my life that has been helping to rid some of that negative energy caused from this stress. This blessing is my Beautiful Amazing Group 25!

Being the Group Leader for this group has given me a much bigger purpose in my life ~ a true God driven purpose. I look forward to starting each day and leaving these women a message each morning. During the day I feel joy of checking on my group and seeing their post or responses to the assignments in the study or if they liked a post. This group of women have brought me so much joy and they have no clue about it (well until now). 

On pg.63 in "Stressed-Less Living" Tracie says "He (God) came bringing spiritual healing that not only saves the soul but saturates it with peace and minimizes the stress in our hearts." oh yes yes he does and he has done this with me through the OBS and Group 25! this group is the blessing from God that has saved my soul. Leading these ladies in this study and past studies has brought me spiritual healing and strengthened my walk with God. These women have Beautiful God loving souls and I thank God for bring each on of them into my life.

Thank you Jesus for OBS & Group 25!!!
