Woo-hoo! We did it! We made it to the end of our study. But, not to worry! While it may be the end of our study time together, it’s just the beginning of our journey to love life again. Remember, it’s not enough to read about it; we have to live what we’ve learned. Let’s begin by recapping what we learned this final week!
Topic Summary: Blessing Others and Reigniting Faith
This week, Tracie taught that taking the focus off our lives and being a blessing to others helps us to love life again. There’s something beautiful that happens when we take the time to help others, to love others as Jesus loves us. As Tracie eloquently reminded us:
“...the road to happiness is paved through the helping and building up of others.”
She also taught the importance of keeping God first. When we pull away from the very source of our existence, we feel less joyful, lose sight of what’s truly important, forget to count our blessings and our faith grows dim. We have to choose to keep the flame ignited, friend, and remember what Tracie said:
“If you truly want to love your life again, you have to love Jesus first.”
Verse of the Week:
“Restore to me the joy of your salvation.” Psalm 51:12 NIV
This isn’t a mistake! There’s only spaces where the words should be. If you were able to memorize the entire portion of our study verse, congratulations! And if you’re still working on it, keep up the good work! Either way, you stuck with it. And we couldn’t be more proud because, here at P31 OBS, we firmly believe: when you know the Truth and live the Truth, it changes everything.

Don’t Stop Now!
Loving life again doesn’t stop at the end of this six-week journey, my friends. As we’ve learned, it’s an intentional choice every. single. day to find something to be thankful for. To see beyond our circumstances and embrace the life we have. If you ever need a quick reminder of the 13 Love Life Again lessons we’ve learned, you’ll find each chapter beautifully summed up on pages 216-218. Such a great review and resource! And be sure to read the conclusion, too. It’s so good!
Anna and I have loved leading you through this amazing study and hope to see you back for another P31 OBS.
