First, I want to welcome all my Encouragement for Today friends joining us from my P31 Devotion. I am so excited that you stopped by. One of my passions is encouraging women to spend time alone with Jesus…to sit at His feet …to dig into His Word…to grow deeper in prayer. God has laid a new study on my heart that will equip us to do these very things.
Today I am announcing that new study. Just so you know, announcing new studies is one of my favorite parts of being a Bible teacher. So that makes today one of my favorite days!
Our new on-line study will begin May 8th and run for three weeks. It is shorter than most of my studies, but it will be packed full of wonderful lessons gleaned from the lives of two of the most beloved women in the Bible….Mary and Martha. We will follow the two sisters as they meet with Jesus on three separate occasions. Of course, we will begin with the most well-known story of Mary and Martha where Jesus reprimands Martha for being “too busy.” So before you leave the web site today, I would love for you to share with us whether you are a Mary or a Martha and why.
If you want to learn more about the study, please read the description below:
Quiet My Anxious Heart: Learning to Sit at the Feet of Jesus
God longs for a personal intimate relationship with us. He waits patiently for us to come to Him. But like Martha, often we are too busy. We spend our days attempting to be everything to everyone. In the busyness of life, we find it hard to hear God’s voice or even know if He is speaking at all. Join Wendy and discover how to choose what is “better” – receiving the unspeakable joy and peace that comes from sitting at the feet of Jesus. In this three week study Wendy will …
- share practical tools on how to have an effective daily quiet time with God.
- teach you how to read God’s Word in a way that will make it applicable to your every day life.
- impart principles that will renew your mind with God’s Truths
- leave you with a Thirty Day challenge to apply what you have learned.
I am so looking forward to meeting here with you each week to discover what God has to teach us through the lives of these two amazing women.
My devotional today talked about living a life “set apart” for God…having the courage to say “no” to everyone else and “yes” to God. Friends, we will struggle making these choices if we do not KNOW the Word of God. As you and I fill ourselves with the Word, it becomes a part of us. God’s Word becomes integrated into every part of our lives. And as that happens, making the hard choices becomes easier. Choosing to live a life set apart becomes the desire of our heart and not a drudgery that we must do to receive God’s approval. In this study, we will begin to fill ourselves little by little with some powerful truths…truths that will bring life transformation.
