Intro to Week #5 Polly's Summer Book Club

Hello, Sweet Sistas! Here is the introduction to Week #5 of our 6-Week online community of sistas summer book club! I hope I am being a good cheerleader and encouraging you to find life, love, hope and peace by seeking the face of God through the faithful study His word and a ever-growing prayer life! 

Week #5 is entitled Experiencing God' Peace.

Day 1 -- The Key to Peace --Please remember we are on a spiritual journey and seeking to know God better is a process! Please also remember that peace is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and the only way to have any spiritual fruit is to spend a lot of time with the LORD -- through the study of His Word and having a faithful prayer life!

Day 2 -- Why So Reluctant -- Maybe we don't have peace because we don't really trust God to meet our needs and we try to take control. That is can be very stressful! "Peace is submission to a trustworth Authority, not resignation from activity." -- Beth Moore  What are your thoughts, Sistas?

Day 3 --  Overcoming Feeling Unloved -- "We eachhave our unmet needs and we carry them around all day long like an empty cup to the people in our lives and say, 'Can somebody please fill this? Even a tablespoon would help!'"  Yikes. Only God can fill up our neediness of  approval, control, success, immediate gratification.

Day 4 -- The Obstacle of Prayerlessness -- "It's time to roll away the stone of prayerlessness. It is the most prhibitive obstacle in the road to a believer's victory, no matter what our specific pursuit may be." -- Beth Moore

Day 5 -- One Way to Peace -- "Christ came to set the captive free. Satan coms to make the free captive." -- Beth Moore.
