BFS #119 - Be All That You Can Be (US Army)

Memory Verse: 1 John 4:16 (NIV)
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
Intro: Sometime “being all you can be” is a challenge. We are trying to balance being a godly wife, mother, teacher, keeper of the home, and much more. None of us are perfect and we all struggle in our own ways with being able to achieve what we feel needs to get done.

Assignment: This week I thought we could share what great ways we have found to help with all we have to do. Besides the obvious getting face down in front of God, what have you found that works? Have you done a great bible study that deals with this area? Do you have a certain “thing” that really helps you like a planner or gadget? Do you have a certain bible verse that just speaks to you and you have it posted so you see it all the time? Is there a website that is really valuable to you in this area? What do you do that if someone else found out about it, they could benefit from it?

This is an area I am constantly working on. Lately I have been doing the 90 Jumpstart to a new you bible study with Donna Partow. She has a online group with facebook and then you also follow along with the book. Everyday you build on something new. It has really helped me focus on my bible time and also on how to improve my life as a Proverbs 31 woman.

Lately I also sumbled across a blog and I hav enjoyed watching her video blogs. She has touched on the flylady system and that has reinspired me to use some of her techniques.

One of my greatest things that has helped me get it all done is my planner. Donna partow recommends having one and carrying with you everywhere you go. So I have implemented that and that is really helping. Also on Sundays I try to pull it out then I look at my week and figure out what days I will be able to accomplish things and what days I will not have any time. That has been the biggest change in my life to help me get it all done.
