Empowered A Learning Journey with @LysaTerKeurst

A little back story, my life has taken a detour that I’m not happy with.  I’m not even sure what the detour is or what caused it, all I know is I’m off track.  So, I have been throwing myself at the mercy of God.  And just in case I forget to toss myself his way, I’ve joined two Bible study groups (one focusing on exploring in depth the book of Mark, the other going through a Christian based learning objective about cravings).  This post is about the second.

We are going through the book Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst.  You can check out her site if you want, she has a 21 day devotional there that you may enjoy.  It’s not a dieting thing, or a ‘lifestyle change’, but rather an exploration of a base set of feelings and helping us to overcome our own demons.  For me, that would be food and cigarettes.  I was supposed to have quit, but frequently I find myself having ‘just one’.  Prayers welcome and I’m still working on it!

Anyway, we had our first group meeting (though I don’t think you have to have a group to do the study).  It was pretty enlightening.  She brought up some great points that have began to change my perspective.  This weeks word is Empowerment.  I can’t quite recall exactly why it is Empowerment, but I think it had something to do with knowledge being the first step to empowerment, and empowerment being the key to overcoming.

If you’d like to go through this book with us, I’d love to go back and forth with you.  I just started today, but I will happily go back and go over any of it again if you join in later.  If nothing else, check out the devotional.  I’m doing the 60 day devotional and day 1 was quick and simple yet very thought provoking.

Yes, today, I am feeling empowered.

My God bless you and keep you.

    Wow! I will have to check into this, especially for my daughter. She had some major changes a year ago – serious health issues – that changed her life and now she is working on getting back. God has become a constant in our lives. We pray daily for guidance and strength. Good luck to you on your journey and stopping smoking. I believe that all things are possible with God’s help. We are very blessed to know Him. Continue on your relationship with Him.
