Welcome back!!! I’ve missed you!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. I thought it was so nice to take a break and it’s been great having my family all home under one roof!
Hopefully, you are all caught up and ready to resume our study of the book, Greater by Steven Furtick.
I don’t want to overwhelm anyone on our first week back, so we are keeping it simple this week.
Today, read Chapter 8, Trust Fund Baby and find comfort in these words from Pastor Furtick:
God is too faithful to waste your faith. He is too wise to make a mistake. He is too loving to disregard your heart. And He is overseeing every prayer you pray, making good on every promise He has made.
Isn’t that sooooo amazing? God cares about YOU!!! He sees and knows you inside and out and He will NOT waste your faith, so let’s hang on sweet friends!
Reflection Verse(not to confuse you, but it the same as last time)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 NIV84
Blog Hop (again not to confuse you, but it is the same as last time too)
If you wanted to participate our last Hop, you still have time. Same topics plus a preview of next week’s topics will be posted tomorrow, 1/4/13.
For all you Pinterest fans, you will not want to miss this! Our beautiful friend, Veronica Herzing spends hours each week creating “pins” to accompany our study. On Friday we will receive the links to these pins and some history about where the pictures came from and how they inspired Veronica.
Your Thoughts Matter
After you’ve read, Chapter 8, please share your thoughts! How do you feel about the idea that God has a trust fund for each of us in which He deposits our faith for payouts to come later in ways we don’t anticipate? So, our faith is really never wasted. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Do you believe it? Have you witnessed it in your own life or someone else’s?
Also, how can we be resources to each other for drawing nearer to God?
Thanks for checking in today! It’s great to back with you in Online Bible Study! Let’s finish strong on our journey to “ignite God’s vision for our life.”
