“God is a shelter, a refuge when we are afraid. The writer’s faith in the Almighty God as Protector would carry him through all the dangers and fears of life. This should be a picture of our trust—trading all our fears for faith in Him, no matter how intense our fears. To do this, we must “dwell” and “rest” with Him (91:1). By entrusting ourselves to His protection and pledging our daily devotion to Him, we will be kept safe.” ~ Life Application Study Bible

 

2. Reflection Verse

I will say of the LORD, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! Psalm 91:2  (AMP)

Week 6, Let. It. Go.

Happy Sunday Y’all!

Since we only have 1 chapter this week, we are going to slow it down.

Today, I’ll give you a few reminders for what’s coming this week, but we will get started tomorrow.

Monday Night~ Conference Call with Candace Cameron Bure!

So excited for this one! I’ve never actually talked to a Hollywood actress before~ and if I ever do again, it will be hard to top Candace! She’s genuine, sweet, real, and has a huge heart for God. Hope you’ll join us for this special call.   All calls are recorded so you can listen at any time.

Thursday Blog Hop~

Topics for our LAST Let.It.Go. Blog Hop…

1. Lean on Him. I will say of the LORD, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! Psalm 91:2 AMP. How does this verse speak into your life right now?

2. Stunning or Lopsided. He is the Potter, we are the clay. Of all the chapters and areas of control in your life, which is the one you believe God is calling you to relinquish? Is there an area you feel you have already grown in? We would love to hear how your life is already making changes, bog or small!

3. With That Read. Now that you have finished Let.It.Go., what is the most unexpected thing you’ve learned? What would you share with the next person who picks up Karen’s book?

 

Come back tomorrow as we finish strong in our Let. It. Go. Online Bible Study!  Have a great Sunday!

Prayer Requests and Praises, March 9, 2013

Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll–are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me. I am under vows to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you. For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.  Psalm 56:8-13

I accidentally came across this passage today. Well accident for me, not for God I bet. I opened my Bible, heading for the book of John. The Book opened to Psalm 56 along the way.

Do you ever do this? You have a plan where you are going, but God takes you somewhere else?  I LOVE when this happens.

I needed these words from the Lord today and I pray they speak to you too!

Share your requests and praises and let’s go to the Lord together in prayer.

I’ll get us started:

“Father, thank You so much for sending me Psalm 56:8-13 today! You are amazing and I love You so much! You know it’s been a rough week at my house. Thank you for carrying us through. Thank you that Hayden’s surgery was successful and the healing process has begun. Lord I ask that You protect my family, guard our hearts, bring us close to You. Lead us in the ways You want us to go. Also be with each woman here in this OBS. As we complete our last week of Let. It. Go. I pray that all of us would take the Truths from this study and implement them in our lives. Help us to be women who give our control to You and You alone. Thank you for everyone who has taken part in this study. You have blessed us all with a wonderful community. Love You Lord! In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
