SLL Week 12, Day 1

Happy Monday! I don’t know about you, but I have learned so much during this Stressed-Less Living Online Bible Study and I’m beginning to put it into practice. I’m really learning to trust God and believe that with Him my very busy life can also contain much peace.

Experiencing God’s peace doesn’t mean that I ignore all I have to do, I mean life is filled with challenges we must face right? I might still be busy and have a lot to do, but I also am letting God fill my heart with a calm that was beginning to get a little crowded out before this study.

Join me today from one of my favorite places in the world that I experience peace…and I don’t have to go very far to get there.  My back yard~

So, did you get all that?  Read Chapter 12. When you come to a passage of Scripture, look it up in your Bible. Learn from Mary and Martha~ choose wisely.

Please do share your thoughts with us today. Are you more like Mary or Martha?  Is that a good thing? Do you think you can really enjoy stressed-less living? Let’s fill the comment section this week with loads of ideas, encouragement, questions, and real life community!

Have a fabulous day my sweet sisters!!!

Stressed Less Living, Week 12

Can you believe that we are beginning our last week of the study?  I don’t know about you but I have really learned some great ways to eliminate stress in my life and the Scripture Studies have been a wonderful way to hide God’s word in my heart.

While we may be winding down, we’re not through yet.  We have an amazing week planned for you.  Here’s a peek:

Reflection Verse~

 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:41-42

It’s our last week of study and we want to finish STRONG!!! It’s our goal to be stressed-less, and I have an important message for you as we begin to wrap it all up this week.

Suggested Assignments for week 12

Monday – Melissa is back to finish up the study.  Start reading chapter 12 of Stressed Less Living, titled “Enjoying Your Stressed-Less Life”.  What do vacuuming, mopping, weeding and cooking have to do with it?  Read and find out.  Be sure to stop by for a special message from Melissa, as well.

Tuesday – Stop by the OBS blog for some Q & A.

Wednesday – We’ve got some Proverbs 31 info coming your way today!

Thursday – Blog hop!  This week’s topics are:

1.  One Thing. “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:41-42 Even if you do not have a Blog, we invite you to map this verse and see what God shares with you!

2.  Priority Shift. Life a bit “too busy” for quiet time with Jesus? We’ve all been there. How do you keep Christ a priority in your daily life? What encouragement can you share with others who are struggling?

3.  #StressedLess. What is the biggest, most life-changing lesson you have learned from Tracie’s book and this online study? Why would you recommend this book to your friends and family?

4.  #Blessed. Alright ladies, this is your last chance to share your #Blessed list with us. We hope that even though this study is over, you will continue searching for His blessings each day.

Friday – Today we close out the week, and the book with Melissa.  While the study may be over, it is time to begin some Stressed-Less Living!  

Saturday – Prayer request, praises, and a short message from Ginny Blankenship.

It’s going to be a great week!  Be sure to stop by and leave us some comments.  Each one is a chance to win the last Stressed-Less Living giveaway.
