Welcome to Summer bible study as we begin reading Nehemiah, a Heart That Can Break by Kelly Minter. In this 6-week womens online bible study, you’ll discover Nehemiah’s heart was so broken for those in need that he left the comfort of his Persian palace to help them. Then you’ll learn personal reflections applicable to your own experience and life. We have more than 500 women participating in this study.
It’s not too late to sign-up and join us in the Nehemiah study, just click here.
Each week there are five daily lessons in the Nehemiah Bible study, so you will read one per day for five days of the week. The best way to stay on track and not fall behind is to wake up 30 minutes early each day. Get your hot coffee or tea, find a comfortable place to read and begin a daily habit of spending your mornings with God. Put God first and begin your day in His Word. We know from past experience- those women who wait until lunchtime or evening to study the Bible rarely finish the study. Life happens and it often interferes with Bible study.
As you read your Bible study, for six weeks you’ll put God first in your life. Your focus will be on Him at the start of your day. It’s interesting when we read in the morning, we’re often reminded of our lesson throughout our busy day. A verse or a phrase will simmer in your mind and then refreshes itself sometime in the day. For me, this is one of the greatest benefits of Bible study and why I desire to share it with you as I lead the study.
Please pray for the 500+ women who are participating in the Summer Bible study here at the Womens Bible Cafe. Pray specifically for the enemy to back off- and for each woman to grow in her individual faith journey.
We will “meet” here again next week and have a group discussion about what you read for week one.
Visit the Prayer Wall and post your prayer needs and praise reports. We have a team of 10 women who will be covering you with their prayers.
