WOW!! Update on Ephesians Study

Hi girls, Words cannot express what my heart feels at this moment. Your response to this Bible study truly amazes me. We have over 1200 women signed up to study God’s Word! That God has brought together this many women from all around the world reveals the truth of one of my favorite promises in the book of Ephesians…Ephesians 3:20…when we pray, God will do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ever ask or imagine!!!

Although we do not officially begin until Monday, June 14th, many of you have asked great questions that I would like to answer. So below please find a short video that I hope will answer most of your questions.

We are about to embark on a six week journey to discover the incredible riches we have in Christ. In preparation for this study, know I am praying for you and for our time together. My prayer, sweet friends, is that as we commit to give God our whole hearts, He will stretch us and grow us in such a way that not a single one of us will ever be the same again!

I can’t wait to meet you back here on June 14th!!

Blessings to each of you,

    Dear Wendy and new sister/friends,
    One day last week I read my daily scripture and it was from Ephesians. I wanted to read it in context and went to my Bible and read the whole chapter and then the book of Ephesians. Long story short, I thought, I'd really like to study Ephesians this summer (I went on my first cruise last summer and actually went to Ephesis and saw the colisium that Paul was said to have preached from). Then when I read this devotion and saw that you were offering a study on Ephesians, I knew it was a God thing, He placed the desire in my heart and now He is making it happen. Thank you for your obedience and being led by the Holy Spirit.

    I hope that is all you need to register me to be a part of this study.

    I am so excited for this study. I decided I wanted to do this study and thought maybe some other women in my church would want to do it also. I sent out an email blast and so far 32 women have signed up to participate. Praise the Lord for his Word, your wilingness to share the word of God in preparing this study and for God creating willing spirits in women across the world.

Maybe I'll get my hubby to go into your blog and print off the questions..Then I'll journal about it..Not sure how it's all going to work yet. Wendy, how long with the study carry on for?

    Guess what: I was doing dishes as I listened to to Wendy. Lord nailed my right there. Guess I will have to find a quiet time and listen and study so I can give it my full attention. I definitely do want to grow.

    Hi Wendy,
    I saw this on my FB page,(Proverbs 31) and wanted to get in on this study. I love the book of Ephesions. I have downloaded all of the 4 lessons ya'll have done so far, and I will catch up….I feel God has sent me here…..He has really been directing me lately, maybe, it's that I have been listening & obeying Him more??! All I know is, you & this study popped up in my life, so, I'm very excited! Thank you for this study….
    God Bless you! Deb

    Wendy and all my other Sisters across the World: I am so blessed by the Ephesians Study. I confess I am one week behind, however every day that I am in the Word – I sense God's presence refining me. My husband and I are going through such trying times these last months – I am on the other side of cancer treatment with 6 months of steroids, financially we are being pinned in from every side, our teenage son is in the midst of much questioning and turmoil, and in the midst of all of this – I go to sleep asking God to wake me with HOPE AND – HE DOES, everyday. Today's Proverbs 31 devotional which you Wendy wrote was about this very issue, discipline. I get it – Hebrews 12 – He who the Lord loves, He disciplines and refines. That's me – yup with my hand way up in the air. We are mentors with the Young Marrieds at our church, and for a long time I wondered what in the world do I have to give to these dear ones? Well, the answer is coming clear : they will not feel like we get them if our lives are perfect and the illnesses just disappear and the finances provide luxuries beyond our imagination – they are more blessed when faced with adversity, we continue to keep our eyes focues on the One who created us, loves us and at times disciplines us to make us more like Him. They will not feel alone in their trials. They will know that we have been through and are going through trials which bind us together as brothers and sisters in the Lord. I want my house to be built on the solid rock (Matt 7)and when eyes look upon us I pray they see the fruit (the result) of Psalm 1:3, trees planted along riverbanks, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. God bless. Love, Carolina
