S – I Samuel 30:6
“Now David was realty distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.”
O – This is the kind of chapters that I love to read about David! Strong in faith, letting God lead, and asking for guidance. No fear, just faith.
A – This is how our walk with God should be:
- adversity comes
- we feel distressed
- we strengthen ourselves in the Lord our God
- we ask for direction and leading
- we step out in faith
- God works it out!
K – Oh Father, help me to follow David’s example when adversity strikes!
If you have been following my site for any length of time I am sure that you know that we are getting ready to make some very large changes. Changes that I am so happy and excited about. We are now one step closer! JP had finished the work on the camper and had stationed it out at the land! I am one very happy woman! Continue reading
S – I Samuel 29: 6-7
“Then Achish called David and said to him, ‘Surely, as the Lord lives, you have been upright…Nevertheless the lords do not favor you. Therefore return now, and go in peace, that you may not displease the lord’s of the philistines.”
O – In the last chapter it seemed to me that David was raiding lands and not telling Achish. Actually, he was lying about it. I am not sure where these lands were, or who they belonged to. I have a feeling that during this war he would have somehow switched sides. But maybe he knew he would have to fight the Israelites and this is how God saved him from doing that.
A – If we humbly bring our problems before God, He can help us. No matter how much of a sticky situation we are in, He can give us an out.
P – God whenever I am stuck, not matter how big or small, help me to turn to you first. Give me wisdom and strength and give me a way out. ~Amen
Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I hope that you are all having a great day. I have had a great, but busy day so far. I wanted to make something special for the boys for breakfast this morning, which means that I have to do some special cooking. I am not a morning person, so this sometimes poses a little bit of a challenge. I am up at 5:30 so that I can wake up and have coffee and time with God before I see anyone else. It is a must! So I made the boys (the big one too) some cute heart shaped “pop tarts”. They were so yummy! Continue reading
Welcome to our study through I Samuel with The Quiet Homemaker. We are blogging through the Bible with Good Morning Girls. In this study we will read and study one chapter per day during the week. Taking the weekend to spend time with God in a different way. In this study we will use a method, created by GMG called the SOAK method. In this method each letter stands for a different thing to do.
S – Scripture – Write out the scripture that touches you, that you want to dig a little deeper into. You only need one or two verses.
O – Observation – Look at the verse that you chose and write down a few things that you observe. What stands out or what can you learn about this persons character or the character of God? Is there a promise, command or teaching?
A – Application – How can you apply what you have learned to your own life?
K – Kneeling in Prayer – Write out a prayer that pertains to the verse.
I love this way of studying the Bible. I hope that you will join me! Continue reading
