Aimee had her baby this week! Click here to meet Grant and send Aimee some love. She had just finally gotten her book a week ago and then had a very busy week this week with a family member's surgery and the birth of her baby, so continue lifting her family up in prayer this week. Congratulations Aimee!
This week's study probably stepped on a lot of our toes. I know it did mine! I have always loved the story of Rachel and Leah and for the exact reasons of what we studied this week. Why is it that we can't seem to get past the fact that the grass is NOT always greener on the other side? It always seems like it is, but it never is! We get to the other side and get everything we want, and then suddenly we look back over the fence at the very side we just came from and it looks greener over there!
This idea is true in so many areas of our lives, but as women I think marriage vs. singleness and pregnancy vs. infertility is one area that affects every single one of us at different times in our lives. Ooh to be content with the portion that I am given and fill myself up with Him alone! It is a daily battle and one that I will never give up on! Let's continue to battle it together!
Here's this week's questions. I'll be back this afternoon to give my answers. "Talk" to you then. Have a wonderful Saturday ladies!
1. Describe a time when you finally got the very thing/person you had longed for and it didn't make you as happy as you thought it would. (page 89)
2. Write about something/someone you don't have but are convinced would make you happy if you could obtain it. (page 89)
3. On page 93 you read, "People will do far crazier things when something threatens their ultimate thing." Can you think of examples from the Bible or from current news?
