Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. óLao-Tze
VSJOHNSO thank you for sharing about yourself, and I am so glad that you are joining in the study. You have a very good attitude, and I will encourage you to continue to trust in the Lord. May God bless you and give you a better 2013.
I just placed my order for this book, and am looking forward to this upcoming Bible Study for 2013. 2012 was quite a rough year for me, and I pray that 2013 will be a better one. I was diagnosed with MS about 4 years ago, but only in the last couple of years have I started to experience a lot of the symptoms from this illness. I was recently required to take long term disability from a job that I had been in for 27 years. Leaving this job was quite hard for me as it seemed like I had lost my 'second family'. I went from having daily interaction with many people and being out of the house 60 - 70 hours each week, to staying in the house all the time and having no interaction at all with another human until my husband came home each evening. Depression is another illness that I deal with. It's been one that I've had for several years with some being better than others.
I try and take only 'one day at time' and my belief is "If God brings me to it ... He WILL carry me through it." All that God wants from me is to trust and believe, and if I will do that, no matter how rough the way may be, He'll be there with me every step of the way.
I want to be the witness that God calls me to be. He is the only ONE that I can and should depend upon.
Blessings to each of you and for a very Happy 2013!!!
"If God brings me to it . . . He WILL carry me through it."
I have the Audible version. I got it for free with the free trial. You even get to keep it if you cancel your subscription to Audible. When I canceled my subscription, they asked why. I checked "too expensive", and the next page offered me $7.99 for a few months. I said no, and the next page offered it to me for around $11.99, if I remember correctly. I cancelled because I want to be able to read as well as listen to books that I buy.
I'm excited too! I won't be able to pick the book up until after Christmas, so that works out great. It's perfect for what I consider the "blah" time of year, after Christmas and the long stretch before spring.

Tina It sounds good, but I remember having trouble keeping up last time with the study, how about if we do one chapter every TWO weeks? Life just sometimes gets in the way. I think that I would be interested.. Have just downloaded the sample to my kindle. I will look it over and let you know what I think. Ravyna

I am considering doing another Bible Study with the team. I would like to cover the book "Unglued -Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions" by Lysa Terkeurst. I'm thinking that we could start it in January so that gives us plenty of time to pick up the book (maybe ask for it as a Christmas present). We have done the "Made to Crave" book study by the same author and I think everyone enjoyed it.
What I'm asking you is: Are you interested in doing this study? Do you have any suggestions for another book that you might like to study?
Please leave a comment and let me know if you are willing to join. The only thing you would need to purchase is the book and a notebook for your own notes and answers to the questions. My plan is to read a chapter a week and have a couple of follow up questions for you to share your answers. I think that this a good pace so everyone has ample time to do the assigned reading and homework involved.
