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?

Boomerang of Blessings

“Listen, Love, Repeat” Study Leader, Nichole Stern | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #ListenLoveRepeat #P31OBSHey y’all! Welcome to our final Friday of #ListenLoveRepeat! It’s been a pleasure to walk through this study with you. We’ve been blessed to hear all the ways you’re applying what we’re learning here in real life. Well done, friends!  

To wrap up, today we have our last teaching video from Karen Ehman, and it’s overflowing with beautiful truth to help us win others over with kindness. If you’d like to view closed captioning as you watch, click here for instructions.

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

And in case you’ve missed any of the previous week’s videos, no worries. We have those right here for you to view (for free through May 19, or any time if you get the DVD!):

A big THANK YOU to Zondervan for providing these videos for us during our study! If you’d like a DVD copy of your own, you can purchase them here.

Let’s Chat:

Karen shares several stories in today’s video about the boomerang effect of blessings. Share with us a time you received a blessing from someone whom you were showing kindness. I’ll go first. 🙂

I love coffee, so often the time I spend with others is over a steaming cup. Because of this, I’ve received many coffee cups as gifts. One cup I received from a dear friend and her daughter along with these words: “I see your life and how you always try to give people Jesus. This cup reminded me of you.”

“Boomerang of Blessing” by Nichole Stern | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #ListenLoveRepeat #P31OBS

Y’all. These words from my friend encouraged me so much. We’re never going to get it right every time. But when we love God and others well, we’re giving them Jesus, and oftentimes, we find ourselves blessed in return.

Looking forward to reading your stories in the comments!

We’ve loved having you with us for our this #P31OBS and although today is technically the end of the study, we hope you’ll join us for our upcoming summer study (you can learn more and sign up here) and continue these Listen, Love, Repeat teachings for many years to come!
