Assignment: Read chapters three and four in Hidden Joy, “God’s Story Unfolds” and “Treasures in the Darkness.” Complete the Guide for Reflection and Study questions for Chapters 3 and 4 located in the back of the book. (So sorry I forgot to include the questions in last week’s assignment, so if you did not do them, please complete them when time allows). After this week, we will read only one chapter a week until we reach Chapter 10.
Memory Verse: I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3
Heavenly Father, we cry out to You to meet us in every page of this book and in every Scripture we read. Show us Your glory!! We invite You to invade our hearts and minds with Your Truth. Replace every lie with Truth. Replace our darkness with the Light of the World. Show us the treasures in the darkness…Your riches stored in secret places. And thank You, Father, that You not only know each one of us by name but also summoned each one of us by name to meet you here. Please knit us together, Lord, into a beautiful tapesty of sisterhood. Remind us daily to pray for one another. Burden our hearts with those for whom You would have us pray. Thank You that You love us so much that You would orchestrate this amazing place to meet and study Your Word. Do a mighty work in our lives through Your Living and Active Word. Penetrate us, Lord, to the core of our being. Bring change, Father, bring mighty transformational change. We come boldly to Your throne of grace and ask all of this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
I am excited for what God will teach us this week.
