Tonight

UPDATE ON TONIGHT:
Thank you for your sweet prayers. Tonight went so well. I love the Lord for allowing us the freedom to meet and study His word. Also, I have to tell you something He did for me. I prayed tonight that He would give me the words that He would have me to speak and He led me to Hebrews 11 (in my Spirit). Then, I popped in the Introductory session (I did the workbook but not the dvds) and guess what!!! She spoke on the EXACT same verses. I was talking with a couple of people this weekend about how specific the Lord is and they were like are you sure it just isn't coincidence. I was able to name them one thing after the next that I prayed and that the Lord answered. I had chill bumps at how He showed up tonight. Also, Travis Cottrell sang on the dvd "My Passion". The song does me in!! I can't wait for all of your groups to start!!! Thank you again!! Now I am off to do some bible study paperwork...LOL!!





Tonight I start "Stepping Up" by Beth Moore. Please say a prayer for this group tonight. Please pray that no weapon forged against us would prevail. Please pray that God would bring exactly who He wants to this study and that they would get a fire and passion for Gods word. Also, with every new study I get under a spirit of condemnation so please pray that I would not listen to the enemies lies. Please ask our Father to be there in power. If His presence doesn't go with me...then I don't want to go. Amen.

Thank you in advance and I will update this and let you know how it went. On another note...if you are looking for a study to do...this one is so good. The workbook was wonderful!!!

jennyhope,

I will pray... I have stepping up poised and ready to begin as soon as I finish a Woman's Heart. I currently am not in a study group so I just buy the audio cds and amble along on my own. It is so marvelous how the Word comes to life.

As for your Bible comment, that was a children's Bible, right? I mean seriously did the illustrators not think it would be traumatic that there were dead people floating in the water... Funny stuff. Blessings.

I SOOOO wish I could be doing Stepping Up with your group! I can't wait to hear all about it!

Praying for you and your group. The first night is always a little nerve racking to me. The liar will tell you all sorts of things (you are not good enough, you have too many past sins to be effective, etc) --- don't listen to him. I know you have a passion for the Lord and so will all the women who come to your class.....it will be awesome......keep us updated on how things go.

Praying for you sweet friend!! I pray that it was full of just the right women and His glory shone brightly! I pray against anything that is not of Jesus. I pray you walked full of Him and lead with a Spirit of love and Truth.

Let us know how it went. Can't wait to hear about it. You are a wonderful woman of God with a heart for Him that is just beautiful!

Hugs~

Don't you just LOVE this study? I've been avoiding the Lord for the last couple of days and I'm finally ready to sit down and begin my homework. He has a way of not letting us go, doesn't He? He has been on me for weeks and I have been side-stepping and doing everything I could not to listen so that I don't have to obey so that I don't have to change. Ouch. Hate that change thing.
Glad the first study went well and that you received a Word that HAD to be from Him. I don't believe in coincidences!
Hugs...Susan

Fran said...

Oh, He's just soooooo cool isn't He?? I'm so glad it went well. I knew it would!

Love,
Fran

Leigh said...

Great news Jenny! You have a gift of the word. Spread it!

I just joined a women's bible study group that is doing "Breaking Free" by Beth Moore (I joined in at week 6). I wish I had known about this bible study group before; Beth Moore really engages you throughout the study.

Well, now that I know about the group, I am excited to start a new series with them after this is done. I hope that your study went well :)

pinkmommy said...

I LOVE when God does something so specific right in front of your face. Anyone that says He doesn't exist have obviously never talked to Him!!!

Shonda said...

Glad it went well. Our group is starting this study next Tuesday morning. I look forward to it!! I'm excited about it!

Blessings in Christ--

Jessica said...

Awesome! I'm so glad you have a good group of gals to study with. I got chills just reading what you said about the same verse! What confirmation! : )

Faith @ The Great Adventure said...

God's specific answers to prayer are so exciting. And I'm with Charity: I so wish I could do Stepping Up with you and your group! The ladies at my church aren't into Beth Moore studies; too busy for that amount of daily homework. Makes me sad.

Suzi said...

I really believe that there are no coincidences with the Lord! He is so cool! You go girl!! I am going to a Beth Moore study in a few weeks! Can't wait!

stacey said...
