Summer Reading Week 2

Pin It Now!

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.

Happy Reading!
