To celebrate our first week of the Just RISE UP! online study let’s have fun with an old LIVE IT OUT! standby…The LIST. This is a fun way to get to know each other. It is also something that keeps me intentionally exploring what I love, what I don’t love, what I’m into these days…just fun lists.
Because we have been discussing a Life of Praise from Chapter 1 of Just RISE UP! this week’s list will have a few questions to get us thinking and sharing.
Read the LIST prompts below. I’m going to share my answers and I invite YOU to do the same in the comments.
~What is one thing you praised God about this week? Something you just HAD to clap your hands and say, thank you, Lord!
*After spending time declaring outloud and on social media that I would not seek the approval or acceptance from people, but live right here and right now in my kingdom purpose, the Lord sweetly showed me His approval and acceptance.
~Look outside your window right where you are. What are things you see in your world that you should praise God for His beauty and creativity?
*Right now I see a mixture of evergreen pinetrees mixed with other trees with leaves of bright yellow, orange, and red. Thank you, Lord, for Autumn!
~List your favorite colors. (I know this might sound silly but I love to hear about people’s favorite colors. Maybe it is because I have a 6 year old and these are things you discuss with 6 year olds)
*Pink has ALWAYS been my favorite but I love turquoise in my wardrobe and in my art.
~What is one thing you find most challenging about studying the Bible?
*For me, I love reading the Old Testament. The hardest thing for me is studying the historical context and knowing how and when the Old Testament verses apply to New Testament believers. I KNOW that the entire Bible is for our benefit, I’m just skiddish of taking Scripture out of context. Something I’m working on and studying these days!
Now it is YOUR turn. I can’t wait to read your LIST answers.
