Here are this week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions

{If you do not have a group, use these for a personal time of reflection.}:

Chapter 11

Though Israel was scared, they feared disobeying God more than they feared their enemies.

Who do you tend to fear more, God or man? Why?

Chapter 12

Letting Go of Your Baggage – So You Can Have Peace

Sorrow. Fear. Regret. Insecurity, Bitterness. Depression. Anger. Grief.

We all have seasons in life when we struggle with intense emotions.  Sometimes it comes from the death of a loved one or a struggle with a child, other times it’s from health issues, financial issues, wounds from someone we trusted or spiritual dryness.

Good Morning Girls Resources {1 Samuel 6-10}

Welcome back to Week 2 in the Book of 1 Samuel!

You all did a GREAT job last week.  I loved reading all of your reflections from your daily reading out on Instagram and Facebook.

If you are looking for guidance in the color coding and daily insight into the reading – please visit me on Instagram and visit the hashtag #GoodMorningGirls – there are lots of women posting their pictures of their color coded Bibles and their reflections on our reading. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to do this and not all of our Bibles will look alike.

Here’s what some of them look like:

4 Questions To Evaluate Your Walk With God For the New Year

Happy New Year!  I am so excited to be back in God’s Word together again!

Great job finishing week 1 of our Bible Study in 1 Samuel!

Today is a day of reflection, as we look back at the year 2016 and evaluate our walk with God and then look ahead to 2017, and commit to going deeper in our relationship with Him.

On this video, we’ll discuss this week’s reading in 1 Samuel chapters 1-5.  We will take a closer look at Hannah’s fervent prayers and the mighty God she prayed to.

This is our God!

Grab a pen and paper and join me on this video, as together we evaluate our walk with God.
