Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

PRE-STUDY/ ABIDE/ WK 1/ DAY 1/RESPONSE

We are all unique, with specific gifting and purpose.  We also learn in different ways…

Do you learn by…

Seeing?    Doing?     Hearing?    Touching?  Repeating?

All of the above?

One of the many things I love about journaling as I study, is the benefit of “touching” more than one way of learning.

This is a JOURNALING study, but it is a BIBLE study first.

Our bread of life is God’s word…and we must EAT…but more than just eat…we must DIGEST, and then MOVE.

The 3 2 1 Method of Study is a process for YOU to hear from the LORD in a PERSONAL way…specific to you…The Lord is so good to meet us right where we need Him the most:)

Thank you Father!

This idea or process of study is similar to a lesson I learned from Anne Graham Lotz, but is simplified by my loving Sister in Christ…Brecken Berning. 

Brecken and I have spent months processing and discerning God’s direction for both of our lives, and although her focus is within Documented Faith (LOVE), I know that her heart and her prayers are with us!

THANK YOU BRECKEN FOR SHARING YOUR GIFTS AND YOUR HEART WITH US ALL.

So…let me repeat our “assignment from this morning”

LEARNING THE 3, 2, 1 METHOD OF STUDY

TUESDAY’S SCRIPTURE STUDY: (record your “findings” in a journal or notebook)

Pray before you begin!

REWRITE JOHN 15:7

“IF YOU ABIDE IN ME, AND MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, ASK WHATEVER YOU WISH, AND IT WILL BE DONE FOR YOU.”

(Don’t forget you can print off the 3, 2, 1 Card for yourself!)

3 TRUTHS (simple facts)

2 QUESTIONS / THEN ANSWER THE QUESTIONS

EXAMPLES: (What do these truths tell me about God’ character? Is there a promise God is making to me? Is there a warning for me to heed?)

1 RESPONSE

What is the action God is calling me to take?

There are NO right or wrong answers.  Being still takes practice, as does listening.

We Women are WAY better TALKERS, RIGHT?!

What you hear from God will be specific to you, but it may be something someone else needs to hear! Keep that in mind and ACT if God is calling you to share what He has taught you…but, always be motivated by His LOVE:)

I want you to be able to learn and use this method of study to DIGEST God’s Word for yourself.

Always measure what you hear against God’s Holy Word to discern if it is TRUTH. (ACT 17:11)

I’m going to show you my journal, just so you can “SEE” you visual learners!!

Stay with what YOU are comfortable with…You CERTAINLY DON’T HAVE TO MAKE YOURS AS DETAILED.

Simply listen, and write.  If  the Lord gives you a visual…doodle it out:)

Join me in this exercise of patience, while we wait for everyone to get their books.

I believe it is God’s plan!

Learning this method of study is life changing, and I’m so glad we have a little EXTRA time to work on it!

We will continue to study the word ABIDE, the rest of this week.

Please join in conversation on our FaceBook page! WHAT DID GOD TEACH YOU THROUGH THIS PASSAGE?

We will all benefit from connecting with one another!

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so

that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”

Hebrews 3:13

OUR VERSE FOR TOMORROW!

DAY 2

John 15:4-5
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

3, 2, 1

Bless you Sisters!

Sue
