Teaching a Ladies Bible Study starting next week. Interesting how God gives us the right material at the right time.
Ung lued Making Wise Decisions in th e Midst of Raw Emotions
Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in
between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and Biblical teaching, Unglued
will equip you to:
• Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships.
• Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended.
• Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication.
• Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode or react somewhere in between.
• Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out ofyour control without acting out of control.
God has a sense of humor doesn't He? Feeling like I'm starting to become unglued with Work, Taking care of Mother In Law and her an Extra Grace Required Person, hubby out of work, Son and daughter in law's adoption falling through, working out and packing lunches trying to keep track of calories and not seeing alot of progress etc. etc. etc. and as one SparkFriend commented...you are trying to hold it all together. I feel at times like those old skits where a guy kept spinning plates and then hurrying back to keep them all spinning. This study will be good for me. God always knows what I need. Plus the accountability of staying in His Word...I've drifted away gradually from daily study of His Word. I am a ponderer and I think that's why I came unglued on Tuesday. I've been stuffing things inside and trying to keep all my plates spinning and make everyone happy. I don't think I'm usually an unglued person that's why it upsets me so.
So we begin today trying to trust that God is in Control and to listen for His still small voice to direct my day and I move forward embracing the challenges ahead of me.
On the fun side a friend gave me all kinds of starts of perinnials. Now where to put them all...I don't get to puter in my flowers like I used to and I miss it. It's calming and fun to see God's beauty in bloom.
