Unglued~Week 2

Jesus Glue

I need it. You need it. We all need it. And that’s why we are doing this Unglued Online Study. Last week I received some “Jesus Glue” in the mail. Perfect timing for our 2nd week of this Bible study.

Remember, when you are feeling unglued, get you some Jesus Glue quick! What is Jesus Glue you might ask? It’s the Word of God. The Bible. Let’s go there now.

Memory Verses for Week 2

Chapter 3

Ephesians 2:10 NIV84

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

 

Chapter 4

James 3:13 NIV84

“Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.”

 

Suggested Assignments for Week 2

Did you notice it says “suggested?”  That’s because some of you may not follow these exactly. That’s ok. That’s the beauty of an online study. You can look over all the assignments ahead of time and decide what might work for you. Maybe you need more. Go for it. Maybe you are struggling with just this. At least read the chapters and look up the memory verses. Maybe this is just right. Great!  Remember we are making “imperfect progress.”  What works for one will differ from what works for another.

Sunday~ Pray like you mean it. Take 5 minutes today and simply pray.

Get prepared for Monday. Unglued book, check.  Bible, check. Notebook, check. Pen, check. Highlighter, check.  Place to work/study/read, check.

Monday~ Read Chapter 3, The Prisoners. Use a highlighter to highlight parts you want to remember or come back and read later. Make notes in your notebook.

Monday~ Conference Call #2. SO EXCITED!!!! Author of Unglued, Lysa TerKeurst is our guest!! She will be chatting and sharing with us and getting very real! I respect Lysa as an author, but I know Lysa as a good friend. You will not want to miss this call. Have a question for Lysa?  Email your question to MelissaTaylorQuestions@gmail.com.  All those signed up for the conference calls will be entered to win

Still not signed up for the conference calls?  It’s not too late. Sign up here.  Each call is recorded so you will never miss a thing!

Tuesday~ Visit my blog, www.MelissaTylor.orgh to join in the discussion of Chapter 3.

The rest of this week’s assignments will be posted on Tuesday.

(I’m about Unglued. I finished the entire week’s assignments and got ready to post them and they were gone. It’s already too late on Sunday.)

Share with us in the comment section today any question you’d like me to ask Lysa TerKeurst tonight on the conference call and what you think about Jesus Glue.

Blessings!

Saturday Sillies 9/29/12

Ok, here ya go. Just like I promised.  Have a laugh at my expense.

For those who were on the Conference Call last Wednesday night, remember when I couldn’t find my Unglued book?  And Donna had to read for me?  Well I found it. On the floor of my car.

Since getting a new phone, making video clips and posting them has become A LOT easier! You saw some of them. Here are the ones that didn’t quite make the cut.

Talk about imperfect!

Just a little FYI, your Sunday post with all of the Week 2 Assignments will be posted Sunday evening. I am in the beautiful NC Mountains this weekend with my family and will post it when I get back. Just to get you started though, Monday we will be reading Chapter 3. And our Conference Call Guest Monday night is…LYSA TERKEURST!!!! I’m so stinkin’ excited about that!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Fab Fun Friday Unglued Week 1 Wrap Up

Blog Hop Rocks!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Unglued Week 1 Blog Hop! It was great to have a day to read so many Unglued messages!  I was super impressed. If you missed it or just want to go back to read some really great insight, real life, gut honest, and sharing from your OBS sisters, click here. It is great reading!

Let me just say this…if you don’t have a blog, that is so ok.  The purpose of the blog hop isn’t to make you feel like you have to have a blog. It’s truly to give you the opportunity to learn from others besides me!  So those of you who are non-bloggers. no worries. Just enjoy reading.

Chapter 2 Refelections

Hopefully you have read Chapters 1 & 2 by now. Here are some questions to reflect on for Chapter 2:

1.  What does Lysa say about perspective?
2.  Finish this sentence.  “When an emotion is tied to this thought pattern, the memory trace grows ___________________   _______________.
Why is this true?]

3. Why is renewing our thoughts so crucial?

4. Look up Romans 12:2 and 2 Corinthians 10:5 in your Bible.   Write them in your journal or notebook.  Rewrite both verses in your own words.  Then write out how you can apply this in your life.

5. When faced with a situation out of your control, ask yourself, “Whose side am I on?”  What is your answer?

6.  Are you a freak-out woman?

 

Hear Me Out
