A reminder of today’s plan in our study:
Monday~ Read Chapter 8, Simplify Your Schedule First. Check in at our gathering place (my blog) to share your thoughts.
Monday~ Our first conference call! 8 pm EST. It will be recorded, so if you miss it, no worries, you can listen later. The call in information will be emailed to all who signed up.
Our memory verse this week is from Psalm 25. It is a request to the Lord to be shown, taught, and led. It is a confirmation that our hope in in Him all the time.
Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. ~Psalm 25:4-5 NIV 1984
Begin learning this verse and I pray it encourages us that we can ask God for what we need and put our hope in Him. He won’t fail us.
Today, read chapter 8, Simplify Your Schedule First. After you have read, would you return to my blog and share 3 main things that you took away from your reading? I think we could gain a lot from hearing what each other has to say about the message in this chapter. What do you plan to do as a result of what you’ve read today? Is it possible to make it simple? Can you simplify your schedule?
Tonight we have our first conference call. It was announced that Glynnis Whitwer would be our first guest. That has changed. I spoke with Glynnis over the weekend. She is in California with her sister who is undergoing surgery for lung cancer today. The lung cancer came as a side effect from her breast cancer a few years ago. This was a shock to their family and it happened fast. She needs to focus fully on her sister and not have to worry about this call. Please pray for Glynnis’ sister, Helen. Glynnis will reschedule and she will still be a guest on our calls at a later date.
Fortunately, Stephanie Clayton will be with us tonight on the call! We are so blessed to have Stephanie as a part of our Online Bible Study team. Her wisdom and knowledge in her field have been a major help to so many as we deal with our emotions in these studies. She has an outline and a message for us on decluttering our minds. I’ve seen her notes on this and you are going to take away so much from what she shares. I can’t wait!
It’s still not too late to sign up for the calls. Just call the Proverbs 31 Office today, 877-731-4663. Ask for me and I’ll get you signed right up! Or you can sign up online here.
So, let’s get to it, shall we? It’s on to Chapter 8 and one step closer to getting ourselves organized!
Lord, help us to simplify our schedules and declutter our lives by allowing You to show us what we need to do next. Amen!
