{LET’S GET STARTED}

This week topic is {Everyday Miracles: Here On Earth}.

{READ} first things first… let’s check out God’s word. What does God’s word say about {EVERYDAY MIRACLES}?

  • John 14:12
  • Psalm 66:5
  • 1 Chronicles 16:11-12
  • Psalm 77:11
  • Job 5:9
  • Psalm 77:14

Download your FREE {Scripture Memory Cards on Everyday Miracles} (<—–simply click link).

Here’s a tip: I cut these out and laminated them. I then bought loose leaf book rings at STAPLES (office supply store), punched a hole through them and now my kids can study the verses anytime without losing any of the scripture cards (especially helpful when reviewing while on the road).

{WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE FOR OUR FAMILY}

We talked about miracles, both big and small. And we read scripture.

 

{ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION} 

  • Has God done big (memorable) miracles in your life?
  • What kinds of miracles does He do daily? (waking you up, providing, etc.)
  • Do you take God’s everyday miracles for granted?
  • If so, why?
  • How can we take routine things and see the miracles of God in them?

{HOMEWORK} 

(pg. 86 in the book)

{NOW IT’S YOUR TURN}

This week’s book study was pretty simple. After going through the above information, we prayed that God would help us to see His hand active in all things in our lives.

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut. My son put it quite simply. When asked, ‘do you take God’s everyday miracles for granted?’, his answer was ‘yes, many times.‘ When asked, ‘why?‘. His answer was, ‘because it all becomes ‘normal’.

Isn’t that just like us? How easy it is to take the faithfulness, grace, and mercy of God for granted. All of these are miracles. We don’t deserve it, yet still, God showers us with them.

I love that about this book study. We’re simply going through a book, chapter by chapter. Although it’s meant for him to learn some valuable principles and lessons, I find that, I too, am learning. God’s word is like that. I love it!

{I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU}

So there you have it, this weeks study. Send me your comments and let me know how it went for you. I want to hear about it! And get ready for next week’s topic, {Loyalty: High Fidelity}.
