Wow, the weekend is here again. I hope you are getting into this book study. I know these may be some things that many of us know, but it's good to see Bible concepts taken apart and looked at separately. I've found that especially with Biblical truths, that even though I know them and believe them, sometimes it's hard to see how I made the journey.
I'm hoping this won't be boring to you. The Lord was insistent that this be taught. I know there are many out there that this will help just as much as it did me. If so, I encourage you to get the book.(Victory Over the Darkness, by Neil Anderson) I'm trying to follow closely along so I don't "miss" sharing anything important. Good Christian psychology will give you a firm footing in the Word of God and relating to God, and it will also shake loose some of the old baggage we've been carrying around.
As I said, this book may seem elementary, but when it all starts adding up, then things start coming together in our thinking.
In the past, I had always wanted control of the situation, wanted to "fix" people, and was stubborn on some of my belief system. Stubborn, and not in a good way. I thought I knew what was right, without letting God give me His opinion. These teachings really made me stop and think about what I was doing and thinking, and how I was approaching life.
You all have left some great comments. If I don't get back to everyone that leaves a comment I hope you'll understand. Even though I have studied this material many times, it's been at least 8 years since I've read the book. I'm spending at least 2 hours a day preparing for these posts. (I'm so not complaining, I love doing this!) So please know I need your feedback and just love to know that you are here and reading. My dear friend Melanie, just leaves a little love note that tells me she's here. Each one of you bless me with your presence and thoughts. Please don't think it's not important. And the added benefit is that you all "round out" my posts with other important concepts and ideas. It all comes together so well!
If you have any comments from earlier posts, be sure to come back over here to leave them. I don't want anyone to miss out. Remember, if you have any questions or thoughts don't be afraid to put them out there. I welcome your opinions and ideas.
All of us in the lower Midwest are getting hit with a big snowstorm. We missed the ice,(it went south of us) but have about 6-8 inches of snow and are expecting a few more inches. (I think the worst is over here, but the roads are tricky.)
Have a great weekend!
