So Long Insecurity Discussion Weeks 1 and 2

This is straight from Beths blog. Here are weeks 1 and 2 of the discussion
WEEK ONE: (CHAPTERS 1, 2, and 3)
1. Write a journal-type entry on the inside cover of your book describing this present season of your life and why you’ve chosen to read a book like this. If you already have a relationship with God, write it in the form of a prayer. I do this almost every time I begin a book that I think could have a considerable impact on my life. When I finish the book, I always go back and read it and it ends up meaning so much to me. Listen, Sister, if you expect little, that’s probably what you’ll get. But if you expect something big from God when you start a journey and you posture yourself to receive from Him, even when frail human beings are thrown in the mix, you’ll end up with something huge. Something life altering.

2. Read the Introduction, Chapter One, and Chapter Two. Our first question is based on Chapter One: When was the last time you came face-to-face with our gender’s massive struggle with insecurity? Describe the setting.

3. This question is based on Chapter Two: what part of the definition or description of insecurity resonated most with you and why?

4. Based on Chapter Three, what tends to be your own “Prominent False Positive”?

5. What is the challenge stated at the very end of Chapter Three?

WEEK TWO: (CHAPTERS 4, 5, and 6)
1. Based on Chapter Four, what Biblical figure (or statement about him/her) resonated with you most and why?

2. After reading these three chapters, what do you believe to be the TWO primary roots of your struggle with insecurity? Keep in mind that more may apply but try to lock in on two that you believe to be most impactful.

3. What, if any, insight did you gain about the roots of insecurity and did you sense that God was trying to speak to you in any specific way through it? (This answer does not need to be limited to the two roots you identified in the previous response.)

Hi Jenny - I have just started reading that book. I got it at the simulcast a while ago. As I was watching, I began to realize just how much I opperate out of insecurity so I bought the book.

Are you going to be tracking with a book discussion here?
