In my journey through the other side of cancer God has called me
to a specific direction. He used a scene from the movie War Room to open my
eyes to application of his word, the bible. I learn what it means to be a
prayer warrior, in the Priscilla Shirer study Armor of God. I am healing from
cancer and some changes have occurred both positive and negative. I prayed
about my loneliness and God brought me to the next study, which is Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst. Have you ever felt less than, left out or lonely?
For this review I will be discussing both the book and the Bible
study guide. Both books have a beautiful cover!
The bible study guide is divided into seven sessions. Each session
begins with an outline of Lysa’s teaching. I am not going to go into great
detail because I had no access to this teaching which was done on video. Then
the week’s session proceeds into a group bible study. Then the rest of the
homework is personal. The personal study sections go deeper into the teaching.
It focuses on application. The study begins with the participants reading the
first three chapters of the Uninvited book. Then Lysa teaches on those in-depth
in the personal sections. The participant is also asked to read other chapters
on certain days.
What is this study about? How to handle rejection when attacked. ?
What is God’s plan when you experience rejection? How do we live when feeling
less than and lonely? How can we help others?
I loved this study! The structure was different than what I was
used to, in previous bible studies. I loved how it really connected with Armor
of God. The connection in application is
using my war room. I think we as followers all struggle with trying to find
what it means to be fully loved. How can we bring the fullness of love, and
present that too the world? How can we trust God in the process? I would have
liked to have done it with a group but I was still able to learn so much. I
plan to put these tools to use in my daily life.
