The Morning After...

...Bible Study Live!!!



Good Morning, OBSers! We’re wrapping up the week and I just want to say Thank You to everyone who joined us for Bible Study Live on Facebook last night.

So catch up on your reading of this week assignment... Gomer (pp. 73-84 in study guide)

Here are a few questions that were posted during last night Bible Study Live! Spend some time journaling your answers.

Before this Bible study had you ever heard about or read Gomer’s story?
Did it shock you to learn that God would ask someone to marry a prostitute? What thoughts raced through you mind as you were reading the story?
Why you think God chose this story to show us a picture of ourselves with Him?
As women we can become champions at covering up and comparing? What are your thoughts?

On page 80, the author lists some of the lessons we learn from Gomer. What is the one lesson that hits home for you and what is God speaking to your heart through Gomer’s story?

Sometimes we subtly, or even overtly, betray who God designed us to be. – Jeanne Stevens

What are some of the things in our lives that can become a “first love” and take God’s place?

Hosea 1:10-2:1 reads…
“Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘children of the living God.’  The people of Judah and the people of Israel will come together; they will appoint one leader and will come up out of the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel. “Say of your brothers, ‘My people,’ and of your sisters, ‘My loved one.’
What do these words mean for you today?
How has God been faithful to you even when you were unfaithful to Him?
Journal Hosea 1:10-2:1 - God words for His people and put them into your own words – personalize them.

No matter where your story has taken you, you can always come back home. Only God can heal your pain. – Jeanne Stevens

We made it to the end of Week 2 - #OBS #12Women #12Women-CCMV!

Be blessed and be a blessing,

Nice vs. Kind

The nice person is focused on himself – he does nice things in order to be perceived (by others and by himself...
