Many Strands of One Accord’s face book page is growing slowly but surely and if you have “liked” us I know it is because of something that God has placed on my heart to share with you, that has resonated within your own heart. Each “like” adds another strand to the cord that “Many Strands” is weaving and makes this ministry stronger.
If you are new to this page let me share a little tutorial about what “Many Strand’s” ministry looks like. Currently we have 3 “secret” groups involved in various Bible studies; one group is working with “The Power of a Woman’s Words” by Sharon Jaynes, another group reflects on the devotions found in the “Jesus Calling” book by Sarah Young (you may join this group at any time, just ask to be added), our third group is working toward a goal of a healthier lifestyle. This group is using various resources available to help us eat right, exercise and most importantly keep our hearts and minds set on craving God.
We will be adding a 4th group soon, the new group will be reading the GIG devotional book…”Trusting God” by Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith and Mary Southerland. Projected start date for the new study is June 10, 2012. This is a 12 week study, each week has five daily devotions and on the sixth day there is a study guide to reflect back on what you learned for the week. If you would like to join this group, please post a comment on the Many Strands of One Accord On-line Bible Studies page.
Many Strand’s also offers monthly challenges to help you in your walk with the Lord. Currently, we are on day 8 of “31 Days of Peace,” offered by S.W.A.P. ministries. Tomorrow, May 9, 2012, we will start a new 30 day challenge to help you turn your Bible reading into a daily habit. I am truly excited about this and can’t wait to get started. This will be one habit you won’t want or need to quit!!! Over indulging in the Bible is always permissible and most beneficial!!!
One more thing, as I wrote this note for the Many Strands page I went onto face book to look for some information I needed…I saw the picture that I am going to attach to this note. I felt like God was speaking “life” to me for this ministry I feel He has called me to share with each of you. Always, always, always…this page is His and He is our leader. All honor and glory go to Him…more of He and much less of me. (To see the picture I am talking about…click the link below and go to the notes section of “Many Strands” face book page).
The only prizes I have to offer you come directly from Him…love, joy, peace, truth, light and the biggie…eternal life!!!
I pray God’s abundant blessings rain down on you daily,
Update to Many Strands of One Accord 2/28/13
Right now Many Strands of One Accord has multiple groups here on-line, mostly set up as prayer groups. Each of these groups have their own “theme” going on. One group is called Women Living Victoriously and we share posts about the Jesus Calling devotional and anyone can join at any time.
Another group is called G.L.U.E.; God Loves Us Eternally and they just finished reading the new book by Lysa TerKeurst, called “Unglued.” This group is now praying for each other as we take what we have learned and move forward from our “unglued” emotions. Encouraging posts and prayers are shared within this group, as well as prayer requests.
S.C.A.R.S. is another group under the Many Strands umbrella and in case you are wondering what the acronym means…”Sharing, Caring, Airing, Repairing Sisters. Together we did a study from the GIG’s called “Trusting God.” This group is now a prayer group and we also share the devotions from the GIG’s that are emailed out each week day.
Our original group is Women of Victory and this group was formed, originally through P31 and we have read “A Confident Heart” and “Made to Crave” together. This group continues to work on living a “healthier” lifestyle through centering our lives on Christ. Posts from this group tend to center on eating healthy, exercising and most importantly, how we can tap into the power of God to help us in all areas of a happy, healthy life.
Many Strands also offers challenges on our page…currently we are working on a weekly word study that will run for one year. We are currently on our 34th week and the word for this week is “Decision.”
We are also “Praying the Names of Jesus” and we are in week 9 currently of this study. The posts are shared each morning, Monday through Friday, and I think you will find them enlightening and helpful.
Each morning you will also find on our page a prayer and suggested Moment with God devotional or Bible reading. This is our attempt to help you schedule a daily quiet time with God. We want you to start out your day right and the best way for that to happen is to begin each day in His word and having a conversation with Him. Starting February 1, 2013 and lasting for 93 days, our Moment with God is going to be a chronological reading of the New Testament. The reading assignment will be posted along with questions, and there will be a picture verse that will highlight the post as a Moment with God.
If you have any questions about anything that we have shared please feel free to send me a message on the Many Strands page.
We pray that God blesses you through our posts and we want to thank you for becoming one of our “strands” as we walk in “one accord” with our Lord.
