Words we focused on this month were
These are all good concepts to think about, to put into practice week by week. God wants all of us, any way he can get us and putting pressure on ourselves is only hurting us. God is not condemning you, he wants you to be free and seek to have relationship with him.
We talked about do we need to say anything and is the Proverbs 31 woman still relevant?
We also were reminded that comparison is the thief of joy and how to start putting feet on your prayers.

As we enter the last two months of the year remember, you still have time to do whatever it is you want to do. You just have to get out of your own way.
I am so glad today is October 31. That means Thanksgiving is on its way and we can move right into Christmas. Happy Halloween!
He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. Ephesians 1:7 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/eph.1.7.NLT. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. John 8:36 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/jhn.8.36.NLT I have been studying my identity in Christ and one of the things that we have is freedom. I’ve looked at it literally like free from sin which is true but lately I’ve taken another look at it.
How to get out of your own way
I’m free to be me. I’m free to be the person God made me to be. I’m free from my past, from mistakes, from other people’s opinions, from my own expectations, from having to be perfect. None of it is necessary. I’m free to fail if need be. I’m free from timelines. I’m free from who I used to be, how I used to think, how I used to live. I’m free to go out and live life to the full. I’m not weighed down by anything.
If we can get that in our in head and in our heart, we will go far. We would be able to accomplish anything we went out here to do.
Take this with you as move through out the week. When your own expectations try to stop you, or you feel afraid, remind yourself you are free. Nothing can hold you back but you.
