Alright, do you sometimes feel like no matter how hard you try to give God the top position in your life, there is always something trying to knock Him off the throne of your life? Just when I think I've got it right, something else pops up and tries to get my worship and His rightful position, and most of it is "good" stuff!
Over the summer, Beth Moore hosted a study by Kelly Minter called "No Other Gods" through her blog. I really wanted to participate, but I was in the middle of leading one of Beth's studies at church. I knew that it would be too much to do both at the same time.
Well, we finished Stepping Up Monday night, and now I'm ready to pick up "No Other Gods". I really want to do this with other women, but my schedule right now is not going to allow me to do a face-to-face group, so it got me to thinking. How about my bloggy friends?
The study is really meant to be done in small groups where you share dinner together (it has recipes in it!) That won't be too possible over the blog, but what if you gathered some women who live around you and shared with them and then shared what He is doing in your group over this here blog? Or you can do it by yourself and still share what He is doing in your life? I plan to do it myself and then have a final gathering complete with food using the recipes in the book at the end of the study with some of the ladies who live here and will be joining us.
Here are the details. There are 5 days of homework for each week. We'll do the daily studies on our own. Then, on Saturdays, I will put up a post to prompt a little discussion on the blog. You can put a comment up whenever you have the time throughout the week. The book is an 8-week study. We'll do a "roll call" to see who all is joining us on Saturday, September 13 and then start the first week of study that following week. We'll finish on Saturday, November 8.
The books have to be ordered through LifeWay's website here or bought at a LifeWay Store. MAKE SURE IT IS THE MEMBER BOOK, not the trade book. The Member Book has the recipes and Bible Study in it. The trade book does not. (Many sites sell the trade book, but LifeWay is the only one that sells the Member Book.) We will start September 13 so that you have some time to receive your book if ordering it over the Internet.
I hope that if you are not already in a Bible Study or small group, you will consider joining me. I love myself a good Bible Study, and I love to share the journey with other women! Leave a comment below if you think you might join me! I'd love to have you participate!
