***Sign up for our next Online Bible Study, I Used to Be So Organized, by Glynnis Whitwer, in the right hand column of my blog. To participate, all you need is the book, I Used to Be So Organized: Help for Reclaiming Order and Peace.
Here we are ladies, nearing the end of this study. Let’s finish strong. Let’s finish actively, not passively. In other words, we have journeyed this far, praying for more faith and less fear. Just take a look at our Power Verses so far. What have we learned? We’ve learned that the faith is there. God has provided it. Now it’s time for us to take the action and receive and believe it completely. It’s ours for the taking. Let’s access it.
Recap of Words of the Week and Memory Verses:
Week 1: Words of the Week: Power, Love, Self-Discipline. Memory Verse: For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV 1984)
Week 2: Word of the Week: Faith. Memory Verse: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6 (NKJV)
Week 3: Word of the Week: Obedience. Memory Verse: Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Psalm 37:5-6 (NIV 1984)
Week 4: Word of the Week: Trust. Memory Verse: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17 (NIV)
Week 5: Word of the Week: Your Choice. Memory Verse: Your Choice. (And by the way, you did a FABULOUS job with this! A++++++)
Moving Forward. We have 1 and a half weeks of study left in An Untroubled Heart. In these Online Bible Studies, we don’t slow down or wimp out at the end. We don’t quit or give up either. We are strong, full of power, love and self-discipline. We are faithful in our calling, obeying God’s Word. We trust God to see us through. And we press on to the end of the race. We are Christian women, children of God, confident and strong. We have this because our Lord has given it to us. Say it with me, “Yes Lord, I take it. I receive what You have given me and I’m moving forward in faith.” Go ahead, say it. Out loud.
Week 6: Word of the Week:
Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15:4 (NIV)
Week 6.5: Word of the Week:
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
