The Phone Tree Time: 9:30 PM – 10:00 PM (EST)
The Phone Tree Format: Phone Conferencing, Online Chats, and Prayer Support
Objective of Study: Learn to view your life interruptions as divine opportunities for God to intervene.
Week 1 Focus: Interrupted Lives
A Point from Priscilla: “Interruptions. They come in all sizes and shapes. All colors and shades. Good and bad. Though we wish to avoid them, every season of life seems to include a few – sometimes on either end of the same day. As we are coming up for air from the devastation of one, a fresh and exciting interruption takes our breath away, challenging us with new responsibilities, leaving us feeling inadequate or outmatched.
Through this study, you’ll guide women to see life’s interruptions from God’s point of view instead of their own.”
Navigating (The Lesson Synopsis): In the introduction of JONAH: Navigating a Life Interrupted, Priscilla invites the Bible student to explore the story of Jonah. She welcomes readers to experience a life interrupted through the eyes of this prophet. Finally, she alludes to how a yielded life to God is the best decision of all.
1) How would you define a life interrupted?
2) How many times have you asked God what He wants for your life?
3) When God tells you what He wants you to do, what do you tend to do?
Splash Points (Take Away):
* Don’t cling to your plans, rather be accepting of God’s plans for your life.
* Realize that “you can’t escape life’s interruptions.”
* Embrace God’s purposes for your life.
* Yield to God.
