Limitless Life Study - Verse of the Week - Ephesians 2:22
I'm starting a new study this week with Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Studies.
The book is "Limitless Life: You Are More Than Your Past When God Holds Your Future" by Derwin L. Gray. Join in! It is not too late. In fact, if you don't have the book yet, you can read the first two chapters at Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Studies page.
The above is the first verse of the week for the study. I figure I'll put it everywhere I can so I can nail that all down in my head.
I decided to take the study because honestly, labels have run my life. I am the ever present work on self-esteem and self-doubt. I have the knowledge that God has a perfect plan for my life, and I know that the slip ups and rough parts have a purpose. I think I need to move beyond some of those things of the past in order to get there.
Here's a little bit about the book:
Is your life limited by labels the world and other people have used to define you? Labels you have internalized and apply to yourself every day. Labels like Afraid. Or Addict. Orphan. Damaged Goods. Failure. Maybe even Religious. These labels might be sewn into your life with such tight little stitches that they feel like a part of you. They feel like they define you. But that’s a lie. If you let Him, Jesus can remove those old labels and tattoo new ones onto your soul. Then you’ll begin to see yourself as God the Father sees you. The limits will be lifted, and your life will be transformed. It’s the truth. Join Pastor Derwin Gray on a fascinating journey into what can happen when you offer your head, your heart, and your hands to the only one who can offer you truly limitless life.
Because I am taking this study through Proverbs 31 Ministries, I am using a link to their site to give a purchase option. I think that it is only fair since this study, other than the book, is free.
