Blessed Be Princesses,
Last week we started our Fall 2018 bible study. The in-person session was truly uplifting, question-filled and hopeful. Please continue to pray for the study and that God will touch our hearts, minds and lead us so that we can be a source of encouragement and a blessing to someone else. Also, please feel free to share the GO! Monday reports with others. Remember, as Christians, we are called to be disciples; to be the salt and light of this world!
Alright, now that the preliminaries have been made, are you ready? Let's GO!

2. FerVent ~ Recapping the Strategies
Over the last few months, we had an opportunity to engage in what I'd call "inside baseball". What's inside baseball you ask? Originating back in the 1890's and associated with a particular style of play in baseball (bunts, stealing bases and minor hits, etc.) the term evolved over the years and began to apply to politics in the 1950's with a specific link to the Eisenhower administration.
Today, it has become an expression that is commonly used to describe non-sporting matters and relates to details that may be unintelligible to others. In other words princesses, we learned about the who, what and why behind our string pulling!
Walk with me for a few minutes through the strategies identified in FerVent:
Theoden: I will not risk open war.
Aragorn: Open war is upon you, whether you would risk it or not.
(The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers)
Make no mistake princesses, we are in a battle. The question is as followers of Christ, do you realize you are in a battle whether you asked for it or not?
3. Knowing How to Respond and Responding Strategies...

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
3. Final Thoughts
(running time 9:18 minutes)
Oh, princesses of faith...remember
Prayer “empowers and ‘charges up’ every other piece so they can be used effectively against the enemy. Without prayer… your armor, cannot, will not, be infused with the power that only God’s-Spirit can give."
Know that through the Holy Spirit you can:
· do things you couldn't;
· feel things you didn't; and
· know things you wouldn't.
