The Inner You

So many women live in a “pressure cooker” (those of us who are older mentors will know what that is!).  The pressures of life are significant and inevitable!  When life’s pressures multiply, what comes out of us is only a manifestation of what’s inside of us, i.e., the “inner you.”  Our “inner you” is our character and emotions.

If we have Godly character and emotions, and reflect the person of Jesus Christ, we’ll positively influence every environment and relationship we’re in.  Though the power for Godly character and emotions comes from Jesus Christ, the responsibility for developing and displaying that Godly character and emotions is ours.

God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it!  Handling our emotions can be a huge issue for women.  To understand the root and the destructive power of guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy are important in order to walk in the Spirit and not according to our emotions.  In addition, we’ve seen how even mature Christians can destroy their lives if they do not have Godly character.

This month you have three books to choose from, and each book has a somewhat different focus.  Based upon your insights and needs of the women in your group, you'll be able to sense what direction to go in.

In “Enemies of the Heart” Andy Stanley explores each of these destructive forces—guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy—and how they infiltrate our lives and damage our relationships.  Andy says that, left unchallenged, they have the power to destroy our home, our career, and our friendships.  Learn practical, biblical direction to help you fight back, to take charge of those feelings that control you, and to restore your broken relationships.

In “Unglued” Lysa TerKeurst addresses how situations and people can trigger emotions that cause us to “stuff”, explode, or react somewhere in between.  What do we do with these raw emotions?  Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us?  Learn to improve your communication and gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control.

In “Louder These Words” Andy Stanley says that our character determines everything about us . . . how much we accomplish in life, how we respond to success, how we weather the inevitable storms of life, and whether we’re be a person worth knowing.  He addresses the external and internal benefits of a strong character, the six false beliefs behind negative behaviors, and more.  You discover how to set personal goals to build the foundation of true success.
