Looking for a great women's bible study? Mar 25, 2006
This is the best bible study I have done so far in my christian life. Usually I start out strong and then wane, but I kept at this - all on my own even - and have really grown from it. Each chapter has great thoughts to think about - good scripture references. At the end of every chapter are thoughtful questions: 5 questions for each of the 5 days. There are 10 chapters in all: 1. The power behind self-control 2. Emotional control 3. Anger Control 4. Controlling fear and anxiety 5. Controlling our thoughts 6. Controlling the tounge 7. Controlling the body 8. Controlling habits 9. Controlling our time 10. Controlling God's treasure
Here is one of my favorite quotes from her chapter on Controlling habits: "Each time we choose to take control of our habits instead of allowing our habits to control us, we remove a link from the chains that bind us. Remove enough chains, and we walk away free" Or, from the Power Behind Self Control: "If it were possible for us to control ourselves by ourselves, there would be no need for the Holy Spirit" And from somewhere I can't remember: "Are my desires so strong that I am willing to ignore God's commands in order to gain a percieved reward?" I plan on ordering this book again!
