“The Storm Inside” fill-in-the-blanks & extra resources
Here are the words for the fill-in-the-blanks in our “The Storm Inside” women’s Bible study with Sheila Walsh (via DVDs)! You are welcome to join us any time for this study @ 10:00am – noon on Friday mornings! (Scroll down to see what we’re doing in kids club)
Week 1 – From Shame to Love (the Samaritan Woman) – June 23rd
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39, ESV)
“Shame is life-dominating and stubborn. Once entrenched in your heart and mind, it is a squatter that refuses to leave.” – Edward T. Welsh
Guilt tell us we have done something wrong. Shame tells us that we are something wrong.
Shame is not what you did but who you are.
Only Jesus can address the life-threatening weight of shame.
God’s love is greater than any shame that has found us.
Christ offers us a new wardrobe: clothed in the righteousness of Christ.
The Samaritan woman became the first evangelist.
We are never freer than when we tell Christ the truth about the things that have weighed us down and exchange those for His overwhelming love.
Homework: pages 21 – 36
Week 2 – From Disappointment to Hope (the Woman with the Issue of Blood) – June 30th
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. (Romans 5:3-5, NLT)
