#Sunday Time With God Episode 23: David and Goliath #BibleStory

In this Sunday Time With God Episode 23, we will learn about the Bible Story of David and Goliath, but also how God uses David once he prunes him into the boy that he needed him to be. 

David didn't realize that his time in Bethlehem, tending to his father's (Jesse) sheep and protecting them, would lead to saving his people of Israel. God had to work on David's character, his level of Faith, develop his Trust, and make sure that when times got difficult that he knew who to turn to in Prayer. He did all this when David was just a boy! If God can prune a child into a young man of God, how much do you think He desires to do the same for us? 

When we feel like we are the underdog going into a situation, God wants us to know that He is willing and able to lead us. God wants to lead us to the resolutions we seek, to the solution that will not only benefit us but those around us, showing learning examples of His Grace and Mercy.

In the following video, I go into more detail surrounding this story of David:

Influenster e.l.f Cosmetics Voxbox Unboxing and Opinion! #elfskincaretips

This Influenster Voxbox is filled with e.l.f Cosmetics products for me to test and to share my personal opinion. 

Overall, I have enjoyed using e.l.f makeup and their other products. I can find them easily in my local Target stores. They are priced reasonably and have a nice quality that never irritates my skin and provides the looks that I desire. I have recently tried their lip exfoliator, which moisturized and nourished my lips, getting them ready for the matte lipsticks that I purchased. I believe that e.l.f is perfect for the young teen, young adult, or anyone who wants to get started with makeup application but don't want to spend too much too soon while their learning. It's also for anyone who still desires quality but at a reasonable price. 

In this video, learn what e.l.f products they recommend to keep our skin looking flawless!

#Sunday Time With God Episode 22: #DoNotWorry #BibleDiscussion #BibleStudy

Initially, we all worry about unexpected things that happen in our lives. We want to resolve our issues as soon as possible but sometimes that takes time. However, what should we do when the solutions to our problems do not show up immediately or when we want them to? That is when God wants us to lean on Him and not continue to worry but give our concerns over to Him.

In this week's Sunday Time With God, we learn what Christ shares with His disciples about worry. 

Use your Bible or a Bible app, to follow along with the scriptures mentioned in the video.

♥ Luke 12:22-34

Have a blessed week!

Since 2014, when I first discovered her workbooks, I have been purchasing them and completing them to get my New Year off to a focused, action-driven, start. I like to complete them by the end of January so that I can go back and review my goals each and every month. Leonie also recommends this as well. 
I have enjoyed the open-ended questions, the Dream Board activity, Oracle Card Reading, and there's also coloring and other interactive activities to plan out your travel goals, family goals, career goals, health goals, and more! 

Leonie just sent out the announcement that she has limited quantities of hardcopy workbooks, weekly planners, and To-Do Pads this year, so I would act fast for those. Good News, she also has her LIFE and BIZ workbooks, Weekly Planner and To-Do Pads in eWorkbook form just in case! That's how I'm working through the workbooks this year since deciding to live a minimalist lifestyle. There's a Giveaway for you too below...

#Sunday Time With God Episode 20: Comfort in Christ and Amazon #GIVEAWAY #BibleDiscussion #TrustGod

That is the same way Christ wants us to be with Him. He is available to hear our issues and provide comfort while we work through our troubles. However, as we seek comfort in Christ, we must strengthen our trust. Trust goes hand in hand with comfort. 

Use your Bible or a Bible app, to follow along with the scriptures mentioned in the video.
