~I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut.--Revelation 3:8~

This Month's Thoughts for:

Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.

Psalm 43:3 NIV

Body-Now that all of the holiday celebrations are nearly over, it's time to look at taking care of ourselves. If you haven't already been, you need to find the right balance in life so that you can have time for exercise and to strengthen yourself.

Mind-Whether you're a student or a graduate, it's never too late to learn something new. Keep your eyes and ears open so that you may find guidance through God's word.

Spirit-Take time each day to pray and talk to God. He hears you.

Good Morning, Ladies and Gentlemen!

2 Higher Ground is ready to serve this morning! God has spoken to us and He has put it on our hearts here at 2HG to start asking the women around us what they need to get them to the next level. What is holding you back today? For this holiday season, we want your donations of the following items so that we can help women start the new year off right. From now through January 31st, we will be looking for your donations to help us empower women so that they can empower their children! We need:

$20 sponsors to help us build job search packages that will include: 1 book of stamps, stationary, writing utensils, and a thesaurus.

or

$50 sponsors to help us purchase printer cartridge refills and printer paper.

We are also asking for your old computers and/or laptops and printers! If they work, but they aren't necessarily useful to you anymore, please consider sending them our way! We are hoping to hook some of our women up with a way to write resumes, practice their typing skills, and get ready to make some positive changes in their lives. If you have the ability to help, please consider doing so this holiday season as we get 2 Higher Ground up and running so that we can start helping our ladies reach their maximum potential!

To make a donation, please contact us at 937-327-0881 or by e-mail. Or you can donate through Paypal right here on the site!

Thanks for your support!

Healthy Relationships: Where do you fit in?

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12 New International Version

In relationships, we are all put to the test in one way or another. Whether we are being taught a lesson in trusting others or in learning to love selflessly, we must always be on the lookout for signs that the enemy is lurking nearby. Sometimes what we think might be one of God's tests for us is actually our own ego struggling to overpower His influence in our lives.

If you are fighting constantly over the same issues with your significant other, take a step back and ask yourself, "What would God want me to do here?" It could be that He wants you to take enough pride in yourself to stand up for your right to be respected in the relationship. Maybe you need to step up and express your dissatisfaction with the way you are being treated in order to make your loved one understand what you need. Or maybe you are with someone who is treating you unfairly and God wants you to guard your heart.

If your usual tendency is to run away from a relationship when you aren't 100% satisfied with the other person's behavior, this could be an indicator that you aren't being realistic in your expectations. No one is perfect and learning to love one another's flaws as well as one's gifts is part of a healthy relationship.

A great resource for you to check out if you are having difficulty sustaining relationships is "Safe People" by Townsend and Cloud. I am currently going through a Bible Study with some ladies and we are using this book as our guide. There is alot of great information about boundaries and how to identify traits in others who may be unsafe for us. If you get a chance, check this one out.
