Won't You Join Me??

I wasn't going to mention this on here. BUT I am.........

Soooooo....... I am going to just throw myself out there, just in case someone else may be lead to do this along with me and the umpteen (don't judge!) others out there in Cyberland that are participating.

I started an online study of A Confident Heart by Renee Swope on Monday.

How to Stop Doubting Yourself & Live in the Security of God's Promises

I have NEVER participated in an online Bible Study, and I was a little concerned about it, but I thought, well if I am not able to keep up, no one will really know, and I can comment and no one will really know me.... 
Hmmmm how about that for confidence??? Think I need this study???

So, YES, I am doing a new thing.... the Lord has continually put this book before me. I have heard about it on 106.9 radio programs. I get Proverbs 31 Ministries email devotions and there was one by Renee Swope. And it came from this book!! 

Since I am confessing, I will tell you that when I am not in an organized study (remember, our Bible Study group just completed Believing God), I tend to flounder in my quiet time. I have several books, devotionals, yet, I don't dig into God's Word the way I do when I am in an organized study.
Which leads me to flounder from here to there. If you didn't know it already by reading some of my posts, I am sure that I have some form of ADD. To my really close friends, you do not have to agree so easily!!! 

So there I have CONFESSED and I am sharing this for two reasons:

1. Maybe you have doubts and insecurities that you face and you just don't think you are good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, knowledgeable enough & blah blah blah...... You may want to JUMP in quickly, IT'S just the 1st week!! You can catch up!! We are still in Chapter One!! DO IT WITH ME!!! You just need to get your book! I got mine at F*mily Christian and I got the last you may want to call before you go there to see if more came in. They have ebook form too!!
2.And if you don't feel lead to be a part of it, call, text, comment, email me, or at least pray for me. I have struggled with doubt and the big WORRY for way too long and I know that its not going away over night. BUT GOD can help me through this study so that I can gain even more discernment and wisdom and ways to defeat the enemy's lies!!! Staying in His Word and focusing on HIM instead of my circumstances are crucial!!

Visit Renee Swope's for more info.

Hope to hear from you soon!!

I love your heart. Always seeking after God. Not perfect but wanting to change for Him. I am not able to join you in the book study. I will pray for you!!! Thanks for being so honest. That is what I love about blogging. We can see each other as it really is in truth.

Love you
