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 am leading a group of ladies through a book by Nichole Nordeman called Love Story, The Hand That Holds Us From the Garden to the Gates. It stemmed from the “Music Inspired By The Story” CD set that came out last year, and ladies, It. Is. Fantastic. Honest and tear jerking, and so Biblically challenging. We are reading the book, viewing the music videos that coincide, and studying the scriptures that she hits on with each chapter. So fun and different than our norm. Cause lets face it, we can’t expect Beth to put out a new study every 6-8 weeks, can we? Can we? ;)

    I am most looking forward to our group of 32 women (from a church family of only 80 people!!! PTL! ) to open our hearts and minds to God’s word and learn how we can serve him. It may be cold up here in the sub-arcitic, but we are on fire for Jesus!

    Hi ladies! I’m current doing Experiencing God by Henry and Richard Blackaby with the wonderful ladies of the Women’s Bible Cafe. We are in week 2 and it is so encouraging and eye opening as we seek to not just “know” God with head knowledge, but experience Him in all areas of our lives.

    Howdy! I was watching the Inauguration yesterday morning – and insisting my kiddos watch with me! “It’s once every four years,” I told them. Doesn’t matter who is or isn’t being sworn in, what matters is we live in a democracy that was founded and flourished by God-fearing people and it is a gift to live in a democratic nation – and not an overtly tyrannical one – along with it being an honor, never mind a command, to pray for our nation’s leaders (are you rolling your eyes like I’m pretty sure my high-schoolers were?) : )

    Bible Study Q’s:

    Carolyn in Palmer, Alaska

    The Book of Ruth – taught Wednesday nights at Wasilla Bible Church

    Most looking forward to: being surprised by what God has to teach me from those four tender, power-packed chapters. I wrote a study on Ruth a few years ago, and I always love going back through a place – because of how familiar it is, yet poignant and breathtaking in new and unexpected ways. I’m very excited!!!

    We are Studying To Live is Christ, The Life and Ministry of Paul. We have a home-based weekly study of 15 women in the day and 6 in the evening. This is our 10th Beth Moore study. It is about time we delve into Saul, the Persecutor and Paul the Preacher. I pray that we grow in His Word and His purpose in our lives. I am excited to take time and drink in what the Holy Spirit inspires us to learn and expect good things as the result. All to His Glory!

    Study: David/Seeking a Heart Like His by Beth Moore
    We will be finishing this study in two weeks. I’ve had the wonderful joy of leading this small group of lovely ladies through five Beth Moore studies now. It has been the highlight of our week. I most appreciate Beth’s speaking God’s Word in love opening doors of conversation and discussion that would otherwise be difficult to start. We will be considering our options in two weeks so I’m so excited about reading the comments off today’s blog. Thanks for doing this!

    Just this morning my Tuesday morning Women of the Word group started Beth (and Melissa’s) MERCY TRIUMPHS (that’s “the James” study, if you don’t recognize it). We just wrapped up FAITHFUL, ABUNDANT, TRUE. Can I just say how adorable you looked in that first video, Siesta Mama! Good hair day for sure! I received my book six weeks ago, so already had the chance to review the various levels of study. I’m jumping in whole hog at level five! I’ve already memorized the first 12 verses, which is what…like 12% of the book!

    And that’s really what I’m looking forward to the most…planting God’s Word and Truth deep in my heart. He has planted a real hunger for His Word and time with Him inside of me over these last several months stronger than ever before. He is so worthy of all the time I can give.

      Oh, I forgot to say that for now I am keeping my James memorization separate from SSMT. Anyone else memorizing James and participating in SSMT? How are you tackling that, so to speak?

      • Tatia Cook says:

        HI, Kristin :-)

        I’m smack in the middle of James! I’m choosing verses from the section in which I’m currently memorizing as my SSMT verses to submit. This 43 year old brain is having a hard enough time with James. Didn’t think I could handle anything else right now :-) Blessings as you memorize, sister!

    Our Tuesday Ladies Bible Study in our second week of Lisa Harper’s study of Malachi. We had about 50 ladies our first week. This will be an awesome study but, of course, we’ll look forward to our next study from our Beth! We did the James study a year ago and we’re still all talking about it!

    Like so many of the ladies out there who love our heavenly Father and King of Kings – I desire to grow, learn, thirst, hunger, and be worthy of my calling. Oh, how I love Jesus.

    Name: Brittany

    City: Gainesville, FL

    Bible Study: I started the One Year Bible back in November. It has been great to read through the Bible again (I haven’t done that since I first started studying the Bible) because I have done a number of studies that focused on one book. I love to see everything come together. I’m also leading a 9th and 10th grade girls’ study using Francis Chan’s Basic series. It has led to some great discussion!

    I am really looking forward to the girls learning how to study the Bible and also see what it means to live together in community. We’ve had a few clique issues, but I have seen progress! God is doing a great work in these young ladies’ lives.

    I am doing ‘No Other Gods” by Kelly Minter at church on Tuesday mornings. The overall group is about 40 people, however we have divided up into small “living room” groups.

    I am looking forward to defining my idols. Especially those that look good and are good things, but I have let them squeeze God out of first place.

    Mel Ann Sullivan – Millry, AL
    The brother in humble circumstances ought to take price in his high position. But the one who is rich should take price in his low position because he will pass away like a wild flower. For the sun rises with the scorching heat and withers the plan, its blossom falls and beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away as he goes about his business. James 1:9-11 NIV

    Bible Study
    We are studying the “Circle Maker” by Mark Batterson. About how to pray bold prayers through examples in the Bible, both Old and New Testament.
    I pray that God increases my faith and that I totally become depent on Him. Because everytime I try to “help” along the way it just just hinders the Lord’s work in my life. I’m really excited about this new study and new year. God has great things in store for all of us:)
