Let’s Not Quit

"Me, Myself, and Lies" Study Leader, Angela Diemer | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #NoMoreLies #P31OBSWOW! And just like that, we’ve come to the end of our Me, Myself, and Lies study. I know Trish and I are so thankful for getting to join you here on the blog each week. Thanks for hanging out with us!

Before I get all misty eyed, let’s do a quick “look back recap” on what we learned throughout the last 5 weeks of our #NoMoreLies journey.

 

Week 1

  • We got into, and began to sort through, our personal thought closets, starting to learn, recognize and replace the old wardrobe of lies with the new beautiful truth!

Week 2

  • We discovered that the words we think and say to ourselves have power, remembering we need to choose and speak wise truths to our hearts and mind.

Week 3

  • We learned to keep our eyes fixed on God, “tuning in” and “looking up” to Him at all times, placing our hope in Him.

Week 4

  • We realized we need to “calm down” our souls and “look up” to God, remembering what we have in Him. And that our past memories can be healed and redeemed through Him.

Week 5

  • We became aware of the importance to “chill out” and find true rest in God. Plus being able to recognize, when there are those times, where we need to “press on” in perseverance.

We’ve really come a long way since we started. But just because our 5 weeks together have come to a close doesn’t mean we now have to close the door on our thought closet progress. Let’s stay persistent in applying the new ways we’ve learned to think, talk and believe about who we are … who God says we are!

So let’s not quit, because like Jennifer Rothschild says in Me, Myself, and Lies:

“If you quit, the world will be lacking what you alone bring to it.”

"If you quit, the world will be lacking what you alone bring to it." - Jennifer Rothschild #NoMoreLies | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies Week 5 #P31OBS

Well friends, we didn’t have a chance to dig into Chapter 11, Lift Up, but we want to encourage you to continue on reading through it. There’s an important message on the effects of encouraging one another, and how that builds us up in Christ. You don’t want to miss it! Plus, you’ll never look at pink flamingos the same again (wink, wink).

We hope this study has encouraged you, revealed truth to your heart and showed you how the words we speak to ourselves shape who we are. Remember:

The more truth we say to our souls, the more the lies die.

And just two quick things before we say good-bye.  First, we’d love to have you join us for our next study, Worthy — a study based on She’s Still There by Chrystal Evans Hurst. You can sign up here. It’s going to be the perfect follow up study for Me, Myself, and Lies! And lastly, come join us in the comment section here one last time. Your voice is important to us and we’d love to hear from you!

Blessings,
Angela

What is Rest?

"Me, Myself, and Lies" Study Leader, Angela Diemer | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #NoMoreLies #P31OBSHey there summer gals! Can you believe we’ve arrived at the final Bible Study section for Me, Myself, and Lies? Let’s come with an expectant heart today, to hear a specific word from God. Okay?

I love reading and studying the Word of God. It’s transformed my life! So, I guess you could say I get a “tad” excited when it comes to studying and sharing the truth found in Scripture.

It’s those quiet moments of spending daily time with God in Scripture that give my mind, heart and soul rest. And we all desire rest, right? Scripture (and our study) tells us what resting in God is like. I love how Jennifer Rothschild says it in Me, Myself, and Lies:

“Rest isn’t just what God did. Rest is who God is.”

"Rest isn't just what God did. Rest is who God is." - Jennifer Rothschild #NoMoreLies | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies Week 5 #P31OBS

Rest IS who GOD IS — Love that! It makes me look at “rest” in an entirely new way:

I’m at rest, because God is rest, and God’s in me.

We have Sarah Travis helping us get into Scripture today for our Bible study time. And she openly shares with us about some past challenges she had to walk through, and how she found rest in God. Her story alone will encourage you! But that’s not all, she also weaves in the inspiring true stories of Deborah and Elijah, found in the Old Testament. Now don’t worry if you’re not familiar with who they are; she’ll fill you in and bring you up to speed. 

Also, a little side note, this week’s section in the Bible study may take you a bit longer to complete. But stay the course and take your time as you go through it, asking God to show you what He has for you. I know it’ll be worth it!

If you haven’t already, you can still download the full Bible study and get started today on the section labeled for Week 5 by clicking on the button below.

I’m believing God has a personal message for you today!

Blessings,
Angela
