"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

"REDEEMED ... " ~ 6

Redeemed - Bible Study BookWEEK 2 
"When Love Never Fails" 
Day 6 - Day 12
(pages 34-65) in the Bible study book
Session 2 "Redeemed for a Life with God"

for next Session 3 
"Redeemed for the Praise of His Glory"
*RED print from Angela's "Redeemed..."

Day 6
"Losing Paradise"

 Psalms 13-15

Angela's heart desire for us in this study:

  • To know more about what we believe - to know more about being redeemed
  • To become better image-bearers than we've ever been - to live everyday lives that are actually being redeemed

much is covered on the "garden" paradise, disobedience and then 
we are asked to consider our own relationship with God
which I'll be doing today like every Friday


My reading in my HEALING devotional

Mark 8:23-25

" Lord, it's always in hindsight that I'm able to understand how You've worked in my life. Fill me with Your Spirit today that I may trust Your ways in the here and now, knowing You are with me wherever I go."

What do you think, should I continue like this or stick just to Angela's book?

Weigh in on this in the comments, please.


Not related directly to this study, however it may be, and kinda related to the FaithGateway OBS of "You are Free" (book and study by Rebekah Lyons) and directly related to "Your Daily Prayer" which I make mine when I receive them from iBelieve (dot) com in my emails, especially when they apply to me and my own life or those I know ... so the one I received yesterday was exactly that. I am not sure if I have other publicly shared this on my blog (as Rebekah has in her book or I heard her share),but there have been times in my life that I experienced panic attacks; and as most, did not even know what it was, thinking that I was having a heart attack or something like that ... I do not know why this prayer and article along with a You Version Bible Reading plan, surfaced at this time. yet I do trust that God has a reason (I added one of the songs on Weds.) ...

... and today I am adding another song from Labyrinth because it's a well loved Psalm which shows up on Day 9 of "Redeemed ..." plus the Daily Prayer to overcome panic (or other) attacks (with a few personal adjustments)
"...There’s a prayer I pray on the mornings after an intense panic attack, and I want to share this prayer with you today, as an example of how you might trust in God to be your strength and help you overcome. {me too}
Lord, I come to You and I thank You for drawing near to me when I draw near to You. To think that You are mindful of me — it overwhelms my soul. But Lord, today my spirit is heavy and my body is weak. I cannot bear the weight of this anxiety and panic any longer. I recognize I can’t get through this alone, and I pray against the very active enemy who is trying to shake my faith and tear us apart. Help me stand strong in You. Fortify these weary bones and remind me of the truth that this pain and panic will not last forever. It will pass.
Fill me with Your joy, peace and perseverance, Father. Restore my soul and break the chains of anxiety and panic that bind me. I trust You with my panic and I know that You have the power to take it all away. But even if You don’t, I know I don’t have to be a slave to my fear. I can rest in the shadow of Your wings and I will rise and overcome by Your unwavering strength. In Jesus’ Name, Amen."~Lauren Gaskill, iBelieve (Lauren's blog)
