DVOG week one questions

Posted on October 7, 2017 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Please comment on any or all questions.

1- What drew you to participate in this study?

2-What first comes to mind when you think of hearing from God?

3-Does hearing from God come easily or is it a struggle?

4- John 5:30 AMP- "I can do nothing on my own initiative or authority. Just as I hear, I judge, and My judgement is just (fair, righteous, unbiased), because I do not seek My own will, but only the will of Him who sent Me."

What might submission to the Father's will look like in our everyday lives? Does this come easily to most of us? Why or why not?

5-How do you struggle with stillness and prayer? What can you do to intentionally practice stillness?

6-Have you even been reluctant to obey something you felt God was telling you to do because you didn't think God would 'work" in that way? If you feel comfortable, please share that story.

Thanks for sharing and please comment on each other's posts to encourage one another.

Week 5, Days 3 & 4 Final Video

Posted on August 18, 2017 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (0)

With joy and sadness I present the last video of our Finding I Am study. I hope that this has been as sweet a study in communion with Jesus for you as it has been for me. It's been a learning curve for me, for sure. Especially in the area of technology, video, video editing, uploading, downloading, transferring large files, lighting, sound etc. A thousand frustrations, a thousand victories; all for the glory of God. Thank you for hanging in there with me and with the study. The Lord rewards those who diligently seek Him. If you are still here, you are one that diligently seeks Him.

Here is the link for the final video. I think it's the boest one yet. I've got a GOOD WORD for you!!!!

Week 4, Days 3 & 4

Posted on July 30, 2017 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Welcome back to our week of study from the last half of Week 4 of Finding I Am. I hope you are finding this study as sweet as I am. When you draw close to the realness and the personalization of who Jesus is, not only in the Bible but who He is to us personally, it is sweet indeed. 

Here is the link for this weeks video.

Please come back here to comment on a few questions. 

1. Jesus is THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life. This I AM statement is the clearest example in Scripture of the certainty of Jesus being the only way to eternal life.

What makes you uncomfortable about this statement?

What is comforting about this statment?

What would you say to those who claim this is narrow minded and non-inclusive?

2. How has staying within the boundaries of God's truth brought you freedom?

3. Referring to  page 128 we did a long exercise of looking at the prophecies about Jesus in the OT and where these were fulfilled in the NT. Despite the clarity of these fulfilled prophecies, many of the Jews didn't recognize Him as the Messiah. They were looking for the Messiah to come in a different way. We know that God's ways are different than our ways. Those ways are many times opposite of what we want and expect. Therefore we need to consider God's purposes and align our expectations and desires around His. 

We have expectations of how we think God may move in our lives. How might you need to adjust your expecations and desires around His? Remember that He is the Alpha and Omega, He knows your beginning and your end and everything in between and He will perfect or complete that which concerns you. He is the Way, and has a better way!

This week watch Lysa's video session 5 and complete week 5, Days 1 & 2. 

I can't believe we're getting close to the end. 

I luvurfaces! Have a great week.
