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 working on Beth’s Revelation Bible Study at home, I seem to retain alot more. I do not mean to sound selfish, but I am currently not involved in a Bible Study group. I am attending a different church after being with past church for 30 years. (it’s been a hard adjustment)

    We finished our second session on “Deuteronomy: The Law of Love” by Beth Moore last night. It was amazing! Looking forward to complete abandon to the two laws of love – to love my God with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength, and to love others as He loves me.
    Love studying and memorizing God’s word with other women! :0))

    We are doing ‘The Amazing Collection’ at my women’s study at church. Has been awesome. We do a whole book every week which is a wonderful, different perspective. In my small group we have just begun doing ‘Malachi’ by Lisa Harper and it is also terrific. She is a hoot and the weekly homework has been great.

    I missed the first Tuesday night Bible Study in Houston. Would you please email me the handout sheet(s)? Last night’s Bible Study was so meaningful and I couldn’t stop thinking about it after I left and how the message applies to me, my family and friends.

    Thank you.

    In His Love,

    I am not currently in a Bible Study. It’s a little difficult to do right now. However, I hope to get into the next one they have on Monday nights and Tablerock Fellowship. My second verse for the month just came to me this a.m. Psalm 19:14.

    I am (personally) in the middle of Kelly Minter’s “Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break.” LOVE. (IN ALL CAPS.) :)

    Beginning Feb. 3rd, our little group of 5 – 7 Wahine (Women), will begin Beth’s Study on “Esther: It’s Tough Being a Woman.” SO EXCITED. (IN ALL CAPS.) :)

    Father always, always reveals Himself through His Word, through open hearts, minds, eyes & ears. Petioning for TOTAL openness, myself included, and thanking Him (Phil. 4:6-7 (my 1st scripture of the year memorized, btw ;))) for the life-changing work He will do in each of us, in a unique way for each of us!! He’s SO good & faithful like that…

    I am going through Tammie Head’s Duty or Delight on my own at home. There is not a group bible study that fits into my schedule currently or I would be doing one. I love bible study! Wish I lived in Houston, I would be the first one there on Tuesday nights!;)

    “Daniel” by Beth Moore, on my own and John: The Way to True Life (Lifeguide Bible Studies) with my small group. I’m looking forward to using my new Greek/Hebrew Bible (recommended by Beth!) as well as more study time for myself and alone time w/ God.

    I’ve never done this before, but decided to try a neighborhood Bible Study in my home. At the suggestion of LPM we are doing Siesta Mama’s The Inheritance. There are 7 of us with most being unchurched. I’m looking forward to these young moms understanding the inheritance available to them in Christ! And for some of them, being the first in their family line to “break the chain” and move forward in victory! To the glory of GOD!!!

    I started a second study in the evening to accommodate a few others who wanted to do a study but were unable because of work. We are doing Believing God. I’m looking forward to the women really getting it and believing God for SO MUCH MORE than they could have ever asked or imagined!

    I got the amazing opportunity to study with you guys in Houston on Tuesday nights when I lived there for a very short time! I really, really miss it! Right now, our Bible Study here at home in Mississippi is Priscilla Shirer’s Discerning the Voice of God. I’m just looking forward to hearing God speak through His Word!

    ~ We will be starting our ESTHER study on Sunday!

    What are you most looking forward to? I read multiple reviews for ESTHER when the study was first released, SO excited to learn and grow alongside my sweet friend now.

    City: Kansas City, MO

    Bible Study: At Providence Baptist in KC,MO we are studying Deuteronomy by walking through Beth Moores DVD sessions from Tuesday night Bible Study. It’s just so good. We are in week three.

    What I Look Forward to: Deuteronomy was not my book of choice. I feel like this book has a “boring” negative conotation to it because it’s in there with Exodus and Numbers. But I was wrong! It has brought me to my knees in front of my King. I am learning and taking in so much. This is a fantastic study!

    Joyce in Colorado says:

    Grand Junction, Colorado. Just began Lord, I Want to Know You by Kay Arthur…a study on the names of God. By learning the names of God, I hope to learn more of His character. By learning more of His character, I hope to be able to share Him with others who struggle with who God is. My personal Bible study is Beautiful in God’s Eyes by Elizabeth George. Yes, I’m tackling that Proverbs 31 woman…

    Our ladies are doing Mercy Triumphs-James. We finished week two last night. I was so excited 6 ladies stayed after to watch the video on how to memorize James. The Lord is doing an amazing job in these ladies hearts! We are stretching out the study. One week is the video and the next week is the 5 day lesson. We end the lesson by praying for each other.

    Our church is hosting Beth Moore’s The Inheritance study and yesterday was our second session. What a powerful study this is and I’m hoping to truly get a better understanding of the fact that I am an heiress of God and what that really means in my life right now! Thank you, Beth, for another great study!

    Carolyn from Rocksprings, TX

    Our Church is offering Beth’s “When Godly People do Ungodly Things.” I’ve learned from the past two years that when I am offered these studies, I should attend and believe that our Father is most definitely guiding me in preparation for what is going to happen in my life. I’m learning so much about the evil one’s seduction and how to be “seduction proof.” I want to be prepared!

    Karen todd says:

    We are doing The Law of Love . I praise God that we have increased in numbers. I love this study because I am getting a fresh look at Deuteronomy that I never had before. God has truly brought me out to bring me in! Just to read and see how much God loves me and that I am His treasured possession, wow. It’s awesome.
