If You Only Knew the Trash-Talk in My Head

“Me, Myself, and Lies” Study Leader, Melissa Taylor | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #NoMoreLies #P31OBSHi everyone! My name is Melissa Taylor. I’m the director of online Bible studies (OBS) here at Proverbs 31 Ministries, but even more than that, I want to be your friend. And that’s no lie!

Our next online Bible study is about lies. Not so much the lies that circulate in the media or among families and even friends. It’s about the lies that exist in our own thoughts. And usually they’re not very nice.

There’s not one positive thing we can say about lies. They’re deceptive. And they’re not the truth. Which is why it’s so important to identify them and replace them.

I’ve found there’s nothing that can mess with me more than my own thoughts. Come on, follow me, I’m going to let you enter my thought closet. Admittedly, it hasn’t been pretty lately.

  • I am such a bad mom and that’s why my kids are making bad decisions.
  • Why do I think I can be a good leader? I can’t even lead myself well.
  • I can tell those ladies don’t like me.
  • I need to just be quiet because what I say doesn’t matter.
  • I could never be as good as her.

There’s more, but I’ll stop there. Am I alone in this? I doubt it.

I’ve talked to so many people lately who are struggling with what they say to themselves! I’ve come to the conclusion we’re not meant to be our own worst enemy, which is exactly why our next Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study is so (thought) life-changing.

The next Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study is on the book, "Me, Myself, and Lies" by Jennifer Rothschild! Study starts June 12. Learn more and sign up here --> http://www.proverbs31.org/online-bible-studies/ #NoMoreLies #P31OBS

Me, Myself, and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild begins June 12, so if you haven’t signed up, I want to invite you right now to join me. And invite a friend to do it with you! This is one study I think we all can use!

In this OBS, we will be reading the book Me, Myself, and Lies. We’ll also have access to a Bible study component so that along with our reading, we dig deeper into God’s Word, the Bible, where real truth lives. And we’ll practice truthful thinking and work on replacing those lies that bring us down.

Many of you have already signed up — Thank you! You don’t need to sign up again. Everyone else, click here to sign up today and head here to get your book! Together, we’ll overcome this damaging self-talk and learn to practice biblical/godly soul-talk. I can’t wait to silence the lies in my head! Will you join me?

Let’s Chat:

  • What’s the biggest lie you keep telling yourself? Do you honestly believe it?
  • Are you joining me for the next P31 OBS — Me, Myself, and Lies?
  • How does the thought of silencing those lies give you hope?

Our Online Bible Study Begins Today!

“Listen, Love, Repeat” Study Leader, Melissa Taylor | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #ListenLoveRepeat #P31OBSHey Everyone! I’m Melissa Taylor and I’m ready to kick-off this Bible study with you! But first I must confess something.

This study almost didn’t start on time because I almost didn’t write this post. This was due to our editors DAYS ago. But guess what? Life happened in a big way.

First, one of my best friends received some devastating news about her health. Then my dad had a bad fall, which required emergency surgery and me to travel to help care for him. He also has Lewy Body Dementia, which only complicates things. The day I left, he didn’t even know who I was. And honestly, the last thing I wanted to do was come home and write this post.

I share this with you so you’ll know that, here at P31 OBS, we have things happen to us too. We know life can be hard. We know there will be real issues that will interfere with you getting things done, like Bible study for example.

But that’s also the reason I love this community and I love doing Bible study with you and our OBS team. We encourage each other and learn that we’re never alone. God is here among us always. And sometimes it’s good to have friends to remind us of that!

So, let’s get started!

Earlier this month, Kendra and I got to sit and chat with the author of Listen, Love, Repeat, Karen Ehman. Check out what she shares with us about Week 1 of our OBS! Want to read the closed captions as you watch? Click here for instructions.

If you can’t view the video above, click here to watch on YouTube.

Hopefully watching that got you even more excited about this Bible study! Did you catch the part I shared about the Tuesday/Thursday Bible study? Don’t miss that! Study Leader, Nichole Stern will be sharing that with you tomorrow!

We also have the OBS Study Companion. Save it, or print it and tuck it away in a safe place. It has everything you need to know for this study. That way you’re not searching through blog posts to make sure you have what you need. It’s all in the companion!

Now that you have what you need for the week, grab your book and Bible and let’s get started!

Let’s Chat:

When “life happens”, how do you still do what you need to do? Share with us and your fellow OBSers below.
