Wow! What a week of reading right?!?!?!
Rahab is a person that many woman can relate to. We see she has low self-esteem, she isn't trustful of people, and she feels rejected. She deeply longs for something more.
I too related to Rahab. In question #3, you had to answer how your family failed to love you or protect you. I instead answered what they failed to teach me. Through my adolescent years, I often felt like I was trying to fit in. What I didn't learn until I accepted Christ, was that my identity is found in Christ. If I would have learned this when I was young, I could have spared myself a lot of heartache and wrong steps.
My deepest fears were removed when I found that hope in Christ. I knew there would still be hard times, but my God was full of compassion and LOVED ME!!!!
Psalm 34:18 says, "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. He rescues those whose spirits are crushed".
This is my verse I am reminded of often. God wants to RESCUE you!
This week, read chapters 8 - 16. You can answer questions 11 - 14. Pay close attention to your judgmental attitude this week. It is all too easy to judge others.
