Saying Yes to God

God is telling me it's time to say 'Yes'. I just recently read Anything, the prayer that unlocked my God and my Soul by jennie allen. Great book, very inspiring. Long story, but while searching for that book, I came across What happens when women say Yes to God by Lysa TerKeurst.  I bought that one to read after I finished Anything.
I then found out from my online prayer group that P31 ministries were starting an online bible study this week on Saying Yes. I struggle a bit with P31 these days. I was hoping to be part of a small group when doing this study, but they have put me on a waiting list. I couldn't find any info on how to join a small group until it was too late, so that was a disappointment. I've started reading the book. So far it seems a bit basic and I was questioning if this was really for me, but that might just be the enemy trying to distract me, so I will 'say yes' and proceed with the bible study.

Yesterday, I watched the video. I had already read chapter 1, so tonight I will re-read it and see what today's assignment is. The study is for 6 weeks, lets see how it goes. I do have to say in following some of the links, I came across what they call "verse mapping' which is to write out a verse that God is showing me on an index card and then reflect on it throughout the day, making notes on the card and a short prayer.

My bible study today was really incredible. I have been listening to the daily readings through the new Portico app, which has been really great. Today's reading was Habakkuk and John 8. I sat down to listen and I felt a stirring to get my Bible handbook. I needed to have an understanding of the context of the book before listening to it. Then I felt lead to read my Jesus Calling devotional before starting the other reading. I heard the Spirit telling me that I'd get more out of my reading if I read the devotion first. the devotion was based on Habakkuk! Yes, God is speaking to me and telling me I need to say 'Yes'!!
