Last Small Group

Today was my last small group with the girls at NorthRidge… and I will miss them so, so much. We have grown close over the past several studies, and it was very difficult to know that this was my last one with them.

Priscilla Shirer’s book on Gideon was the perfect last study for me – it was exactly what I needed, and it has impacted me in the exact way that I needed. I am pretty sure Priscilla knew I was leaving Michigan and made sure to publish this study just in the nick of time. :)

Below I captured some of my most significant #LessonsfromGideon.

- If we are constantly anticipating a grandiose event to accompany the times when we encounter God or hear His voice, we will miss out on many intimate moments in our relationship with God
- Today's tasks, even the most mundane of them, are often preparing us for tomorrow's calling (sometimes we prematurely pursue the mission to which we've been called and forgo the critical groundwork of learning about and walking in our God-given spiritual identity)
- Our weaknesses are the conduits through which we experience God's strength (don't concentrate on the disparity between the problem and your resources - look to God, and watch five loaves plus two fish equal more than enough... your resources are in your relationship with Christ)

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
