"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

This week, complete Week 1
Divine Triangulation (pages 12-43) 
in your Bible study book

I thought it was just the Introduction, but we're digging right in to the
5 days of material this week already

ACTS 14

So today, I am watching the video
and filling in the
Viewer's Guide

Friday is my day offline so either Fri. or Sat. 
I will be doing Day One: "A Trail of Two Cities"
On Reading Scripture

Day 2 (Sat. or Sun.) "Meet the Teacher"
Day 3 (Mon.) "Where Was He When"
Day 4 (Tues.) "A Beeline to City Three"
Theology: A Collective Struggle
Day 5 (Weds.) "A New Son and A Circumcision"

{interesting titles for background introduction of Paul and Timothy}

2 Timothy begins in
WEEK TWO


I am so enjoying Bonnie's Book Club of "Whispers of Rest" and would love to be reading "Me, Myself and Lies" by Jennifer Rothschild with P31 OBS but I've had this study since the beginning of 2017 when I purchased "Redeemed" and my first real book by Beth Moore (though I have many in my Kindle) but was disappointed when I opened the book and realized that I didn't get the DVDs so I could listen and watch Beth Moore teaching this and NOW I have the opportunity to do this at LIFEWAY so I can't miss out on this, nor should you. The Study videos are long, approximately 65 minutes so they are well worth setting time aside to at least watch these ... if you can't get the "Entrusted" Bible Study book right now. 

Often when I start a Bible Study, I need to define the title or understand why the author entitles their study with that title, so

Entrusted: 1. To give over (something) to another for care, protection, or performance 2. To give as a trust to someone

I needed to see if there is a correlation between "trust" and "entrust" and 2 Timothy! 

{I did not realize this was focused on MENTORING, but it seems so from this opening session. How I know I would have grown spiritually if I had a mentor and by now should be mentoring someone but as Beth points out we feel inadequate and need to get over that. How true.}

SOS: "RHYTHMS OF GRACE" and/or "...LIES"

Study On Sunday

as we

Soak On SONday


I already shared that there are so many excellent Summer Studies {still finding more like Love God Greatly's SOLD OUT} and this morning very early, the Book Club I've started, shared glimpses all this past week and love! I gave this week's outline in that morning post. Then I chose to share one of the other ones over at The Lighthouse of Prayer {so I will link to the specific post after it publishes at 6 p.m. also} instead of here (it fits there better) and starts today with the official Kick-off tomorrow night. The one I've been waiting for because I had the book, starts this Thurs. over HERE! I bought the book but felt I could not do the study without the DVDs and now those will be available! Thank You God (and B.M. (LPM)! So that leaves this ONE that I'm not sure how I'll be able to do it ... but ...

You’re Invited to the "How to Parent Your Child's Mind" Teaching Series! We'd love for you to join us! #P31OBS #NoMoreLies

"ME, MYSELF, AND LIES"

I will add to this post when I have more information on the "... LIES" (I mean the P31 OBS - that's their study)

SOMETHING SPECIAL

with
Rebekah Lyons
author of 
"You Are Free"
(a previous study)
has been doing a 10 day video/email study with those 
that signed up
{like me}
one that goes really well with Bonnie Gray's
"Whispers of Rest"
called

"Rhythms of Grace"

{today was Day 7 for me}
 (maybe Rebekah did this on either her Facebook or website too, I'm not sure)

"Day 7

"However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace." Acts 20:24
My prayer in rest became one of surrender. I offered, "God, if my life is not my own and my days are Yours, please show me what to do each day. Interrupt my life with who I should encounter and what I should say. I'll trust You'll make time for it, and You'll appoint the conversations that are supposed to happen." 
Rest allows the interruption of God to take root.
Abiding creates a heightened sensitivity to God's perspective. When we seek first the kingdom, we trust God when He says, "I'll take care of the rest of it." We could obsess about the things that are temporal, but God calls us to fix our eyes on Him, because He calls us into His work. He prompts us to reach out and bless others!"~ Rebekah (Lyons)
{the best part of these is hearing and seeing her in the videos}

APOLOGY

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging rather than edit each one. So if you clicked from somewhere and ended up here and the post was unavailable, I am sorry. It would be too much work for me to go back through each one and fix. I guess I'm still learning. I apologize also to anyone who subscribes that perhaps received many old ones in your email. There's somewhat of an explanation on 7/19/17.
