Thinking about renewal...


Friend, we often say "ReNEWed Life Women's Event is a one day event, but renewal must happen over and over again." I'm not sure if you sense that need in your life, but I know I do mine which has me thinking about renewal today. 

Life can leave us worn out. Daily demands drain us. Broken relationships hurt us. Illness and death change our world. We need God, His grace and His provision. He can renew us. 

I pray the verses below bless you, remind you of Truth and become part of your prayers. May the quotes encourage you to join God in this great process!

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, 
the new has come." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me." (Psalm 51:10)

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, 
that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." (Romans 12:2)

"But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

 "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, 
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day." (2 Corinthians 4:16)

"The God who made us can also remake us." Woodrow Kroll


"Renewing the mind is a little like refinishing furniture. It is a two-stage process. It involves taking off the old and replacing it with the new. The old is the lies you have learned to tell or were taught by those around you; it is the attitudes and ideas that have become a part of your thinking but do not reflect reality. The new is the truth. To renew your mind is to involve yourself in the process of allowing God to bring to the surface the lies you have mistakenly accepted and replace them with truth. To the degree that you do this, your behavior will be transformed." Charles Stanley

A Give-Away!!


Do you remember last year at ReNEWed Life when Mary DeMuth touched on the lies we believe that leave us feeling unworthy? Could you relate to any of them? Perhaps you are a new friend to our ministry and are not sure what I'm talking about, but can relate to the struggle with unworthiness. I believe if we're honest, we all can! So please don't feel alone in this battle. You don't have to be unequipped either!

Mary recently released a new book titled "Worth Living" and it is worth reading! Here's a glimpse of what the book is about -

"All women yearn to wake up each morning know that no matter what their circumstances, they can feel joy because they are secure in God's love for them and their unique place in the world.

With deep compassion, Mary DeMuth dares women to believe that the God who starts a good work in them is faithful to bring it to glorious completion. That the God who redeems them also loves them - right now and always - with a beautiful love. That they are daughters of the King, always welcomed in His presence. She helps women discover a future where they know they are wildly loved, they feel strong and secure, and they are destined to have a great impact on the world around them."

Today we are going to bless someone with a copy of their own, so in order to enter share your answer to this question -

In what way have you ever felt unworthy? 

If time is short just leave your name and email so we can contact you if you win! Also for a second entry, share this post with friends via social media - just let us know you did!

Stop by next Friday when we will announce the winner and do another give-away!!! Registration forms are now available and can be printed from our blog!! Let us know if you have any questions. Blessings friends!
