Hello, friends!

Have you ever wondered what being a chosen child of God means? Have you ever thought about the responsibilities that might come with that? In today’s podcast episode, we discuss what being chosen actually means, as well as a shift in mentality that you may not even realize you need!

Praying my words speak to your hearts, friends!

Love in Christ,

“Legalism vs. Relationship”: IG Live Bible Study

Hello, friends!

In this week’s “Your Best New Self” Instagram Live Bible Study, we discuss “Legalism vs. Relationship” as we continue our walk through Romans in Chapter 3. Last week we talked about self reflection and judging others, while this week we talk more about how we can apply the idea of self reflection to searching our hearts concerning the nature of our faith.

So, with that in mind, today we ask ourselves the question, “am I being legalistic or genuine in my relationship with Christ?” It’s a great question for us to ask ourselves every now and then in order to stay in check with our faith!

On a related, but separate note…I must say that I’ve been doing these Bible Studies for over a year now, and they have truly blessed my life. I’ve been blown away by the support I’ve received from people from ALL OVER THE WORLD joining in to watch and talk about Christ together! It’s honestly amazing.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to join us, I’d love for you to be a part of it! Just jump on Instagram every Saturday morning at 9am CST and join the conversation!

Can’t wait to see you there!

Praying, as always, that my words speak to your heart, friends!

Love in Christ,

Romans 2: Judging Others (Instagram Live Bible Study)

Hello, Friends!

This episode of Your Best New Self IG Live Bible Study kicks off our series in Romans, beginning in Romans 2:1-16. Right away in this chapter Paul brings up the topic of judging others; which at first, I didn’t really think was a problem of mine. However, as I thought about it, I realized I had not only been judging others, but holding on to some unchecked judgment that was causing bitterness inside my soul. In so doing, I was just as guilty as the person I was judging.

It’s my prayer that after listening to this Bible Study, we would walk away with three convictions:

1. To stop judging others by implementing a forgiving mentality.

2. To have patience for others by praying for those who have hurt or wronged us.

3. To be a “doer”, not just a “hearer” of the word by practicing self-reflection in our walk with Christ.

If you’d like to join me for a Live Bible Study, just follow me on Instagram (@helenelizabethspeaks) and click on my profile picture every Saturday Morning at 9AM CST until the end of this Calendar year. After that, I’ll be taking a short break from doing Lives in order to prepare for bringing a new baby into the world!

Praying as always that my words speak to your heart!

Love in Christ,

Helen Elizabeth

Hello, friends!

As some of you know, several of my Instagram followers (along with myself) are currently participating in the second round of “Your Best New Self 21 Day Challenge”! Well, today is August 14, 2019, which marks day 9 of our challenge and the first day of reading through Nehemiah!

In honor of starting Nehemiah, I decided to kick things off by inviting my dear friend, Stephanie O’Brien-Martin, to help lead a video overview of the book! In this overview, Stephanie shares her story, while also revealing to us how the book of Nehemiah can apply directly to our daily lives and can help us get through what she calls “The Messy Middle”. (See bottom of blog for video.)
