I thank my God for you, offering prayer for you all with love!  May the Lord send wind to dissipate the smoke and rain to quench the fires.

We are moving the first Women of the Word to October 7 as we hope to meet both in person and on Zoom!  Mark your calendars for October (7,14, 21 and 28th /2:30pm) for a four week study in Psalm 139.  Praying you can all come!

In the meantime… I would like to encourage you all to read through the Book of Ephesians!  A faithful teacher of the Word recommends reading through the Pauline letters in their entirety for two weeks consecutively to get a good grasp.  My challenge to you is to start Monday the 21st and read through the book daily for two weeks. 

As the Lord leads journal the following questions as you are reading:

  1. What has Christ done for you?
  2. What are you going to do about it?

Have you seen the movie Overcomer? I was encouraged as I watched by the beautiful example of a young lady making a list of her position in Christ from Ephesians.

Georgia purchased a nice ESV Journal of just the Book of Ephesians that you might enjoy using as you read through Ephesians and journal.  I found two versions at Christianbook and it looks like they also have a NKJV one coming out soon!



Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ,

just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world,

that we would be holy and blameless before Him. 

Ephesians 1:3-4
