Let’s Talk About Bible Study!

I started this post out by typing, “Good Monday morning, ladies!”, but then I realized it was Martin Luther King day, so instead I’ll say, “Happy Martin Luther King day, friends!”

I imagine many of you are at home enjoying some snuggles with your little ones who are out of school, or maybe you’re a teacher who is loving spending a Monday at home as opposed to at school, or maybe, just maybe, you’re like those of us at Living Proof and you made the typical drive to work this morning. Either way, I hope your morning has started out peacefully and wonderfully! A few weeks ago our fearless leader reminded us that working is not a curse! Working is a good thing. So if you’re fighting thoughts of envy today, remember it’s a blessing to be working. Work with some excellence today, despite the way you feel!

Anyway, I completely sidetracked. Typical.

We are in full Tuesday night Bible study mode around here! I promise we’ll try not to wear you out talking about it, but I think it’s safe to say it’s high priority around here, and we joyfully get to serve. But, it got me thinking about you! I know for a fact many of you also started your Spring Bible study here recently and I’d love to hear what you’re digging into this semester. Plus, posts like these always benefit the reader that is looking for a study to do but just needs an idea or two.

So, let’s make our comments easy peasy. I’ll start:

Name: Lindsee

City: Houston, TX

Bible Study: I am participating in the Tuesday night Bible study, Children of the Day, but I am also taking a group of high school girls through Believing God written by our Siesta Mama, Beth Moore. 

What are you most looking forward to? I am looking forward to watching these young girls learn the five statement pledge of faith and also being reminded of them myself. Praying we would all believe God for immeasurably more this year!

Your turn! No pressure to answer each of the questions, but it adds a little spice, doesn’t it? However, for sure add the Bible study and who it’s by so that if someone is interested in that particular study, they won’t have any problem finding it!

Oh, and I couldn’t log off without sharing a glorious picture with you all from Tuesday evening. I can take zero credit for this picture because someone actually texted it to me after Bible study that night, but I thought it was too fun not to share. Thank you for praying for our first evening! Praise God alone for a room full of ladies studying 1st and 2nd Thessalonians. You would not waste a prayer on our Beth as she concentrates on all things involving this study!

We love y’all so very much.

    I’m leading two groups of women (a Wednesday morning and evening group) through Stormie Omartian’s The Power of a Praying Woman. We started two weeks ago and are all loving it!

    I look forward to seeing how this study deepens our prayer lives, especially my own! Each week we end the study praying in small groups of 4-5, NOT sharing prayer requests, but each gal praying for one concern of her own and one concern of the sister who prayed just before her. This has been an amazing exercise in prayer and community!

    WOW! What a great picture of the Tuesday night Bible study group!! I wish I could share a pic of one of my groups on here too in this comment. :) But it’s not nearly as big. Lol!
    I have the honor of leading 3 fantastic groups out here in the very cold Saskatchewan Canada winter :) There are about 90 ladies in all – with 10 sweet sisters just going through the workbook on their own because their schedules didn’t permit them to join a group.
    We are journeying through Stepping Up. What an incredible pilgrimage!! It’s a very unique pilgrimage for 10 of us as we will be travelling to Israel in March. This will be my 4th group that I’ve gone with and Arie Harel has been our tour guide each time! ♥ So, this study is especially dear to me. :) I resonate with so much of what is in the workbook – the photos, videos and all. :) We are all so very very blessed by this study! Learning and growing so much!! Thank you God for giving Miss Beth this study to write.

    I am doing two online studies by Wendy Pope of Proverbs 31 Ministies. The first…RTW 2013…follows the NLT Chronological Daily Bible readings. For each days selections…we choose Something New that we never saw before…Something Old that we remembered or gained new perspective on…and Something to Do..to apply these understandings. The other…is a Psalm Study…and begins February 2. This looks to be slower paced with a week of activities centered on each Psalm.

    Also debating joining a new study at Church based on Jennie Allens DVD series STUCK.

          I do like the Sbux Peppermint Mocha, it just does not mix well with anxiety. Just got back from the cardiologist. Heart is fine, it’s likely stress, so coffee would probably not help so much, haha.

    About to begin James by Beth Moore: Monday nights and Tuesday mornings. We usually do a Beth study this time of year. It warms our hearts during the deep freeze and Spring’s new growth coincides with the growth we always experience from a Beth study.

    Looking forward to all the growth in each one that does it. In my preparation I have been swept off my feet by what God is doing. Yahoo!

    Bible Study: I have reluctantly submitted to God’s call for me to lead women’s Bible study in our church. We are on our third study and currently doing Beth’s Deuteronomy: Law of Love study. We are on our third week tonight!

    What are you most looking forward to? I’m so looking forward to the way God reveals His love for each and every one of us, that we may never forget! I’m praying for God to show me how to love him with every bit of who I am in a way that is so foreign to those around me, that I would fully rely on His outpouring of love for me each day to live a tremendous life for HIS GLORY!

    I will be participating in a Tuesday night Bible study, True Learning-Bee Wise. This is a nine-week study on developing intimacy with God and learning to listen to Him.

    This study is the beginning of an intensive program in the spiritual formation of the Believer. There is a two-fold purpose that we desire to accomplish. One, that the individual’s relationship with Christ is brought to an even deeper level of intimacy and communication with Christ; and secondly, that the believer is equipped and prepared to guide and instruct others in the understanding and application of the exchanged life truths.

    I’m looking forward to it.

    I am leading believing God for my Sunday school class. And personally I’m doing Nehemiah by Kelly Minter.

    I really need the reminders from Believing God. That study changed my life when I did it the first time. I so want to give my ladies the joy that comes from truly believing God.

    • 22.1
      Sandy Bowers says:

      Patty,
      I am doing Believing God too with a group of about 10 woman. Only in week 2, but already loving it. I did Nehemiah in my home last summer with 4 other ladies. It was awesome! I hope you have downloaded the videos from Lifeway that Kelly did for this study. I guess you could do it without the videos, but they are so great. You might check it out if you don’t have them. They aren’t too pricey. Also, you might want look back at the archives of this blog, starting towards the end of June, 2012. Beth did short videos every other week on this Nehemiah Bible Study. She asked such helpful questions that just added to the already awesome study. Having said all that, maybe you already know it. Have fun with your Bible Studies and I pray God will make himself known to you and help you know what it in your heart.

I took it 6 years ago and our women’s ministries has offered most all of the Beth Moore studies over these last 6 years, but many women missed this one, so we are doing it again. Can’t wait!

    Most looking forward to?
    All of us having a more fervent faith and a BIG new level of Believing God and trusting Him for what He can do in each of our lives individually and corporately as a group in the greater forever family of God!

    For those ladies who are studying Beth’s “Daniel” — that is a difficult study, so pray your way through it, and stick with it. Don’t give up! For those ladies doing Beth’s “Stepping Up”, I hope you enjoy this study as much as I did! I loved learning more about the temple in Jerusalem!
