Here are the words for the fill-in-the-blanks in our “The Storm Inside” women’s Bible study with Sheila Walsh (via DVDs)!
su_spoiler title=”Week 2 – From Disappointment to Hope (the Woman with the Issue of Blood)”]
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. (Romans 5:3-5, NLT)
The level of disappointment we experience is measured by how much hope we have invested in the situation.
The greatest miracle the woman received that day was one she wasn’t looking for and didn’t know she needed.
She wanted to be healed, but Jesus wanted to make her whole.
When the pain of remaining the same is greater than the pain of change, then we will change.
We all have moments to step out or slip away into the shadows!
The woman fell at the feet of Jesus, knowing her need of a Healer. She told Him the whole truth.
Jesus called her “daughter” – loved one, adopted one, who belongs to Me.
Are you held back by looking in the rear view mirror? Don’t allow the disappointment of yesterday to rob you of the hope of today.
Are you defined by an issue or an identity?
