“Your words were found and I ate them, And Your word became to me The gladness and joy of my heart, For I am called by Your name, O Jehovah, God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16
Tonight is the start of the winter video training in London, and as in previous years I am preparing verse sheets to go along with the training outlines. I find these useful to quickly look up the verses as the brothers are speaking the messages, and to get into the verse references during the study times. I hope you find them useful too, and am making them available here for those who do.
These verse sheets are for the Crystallization-study of Genesis (2), and I will update this post as I go along. As a little note, in order to conserve space I tend not to quote whole chapters that are referenced, so you will need to look those ones up. Oh, and if you spot any mistakes, please let me know so I can correct them. Thanks!
I do hope that I could be such a person, doing nothing and being nothing, just walking with the Lord until the day I am taken to be with Him.
Having heard that the upcoming Summer Training is going to be on the book of Genesis, and having received a lot of encouragement recently to get into the Life-studies in a regular way, I’ve decided to pause my sporadic reading of the New Testament Life-studies (but I have made it to Luke now!) and start with Genesis. Let’s see how far I can get before the Summer Training starts!
So, also in attempt to get back into posting (sorry for my silence), I thought I’d share from my enjoyment of message one. In this message, the first part was on how the Bible is a wonderful book. And it really is! It is the breath of God, it is spirit and life, and it mainly reveals life to us. Thank You Lord, for the Bible.
Last winter I made verse sheets for the Winter Training 2011: Psalms (2) to help in my study for the video training. These verse sheets seemed to be very helpful for others also, and so I am sharing the verse sheets I’m making for the Crystallization-study of Daniel and Zechariah and will be posting them here as I go along. We start our video training here in London tonight :)

I have been stirred back into blog-action by having just watched a wonderful video made by Bibles for America. It is called The God-shaped Vacuum, and poses the following question:
Have you ever felt unsatisfied, let down, or even empty after you got what you thought would make you happy?
You are not alone.
I know I’ve had this feeling before, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
I highly recommend watching the video, it is only 2:50 minutes, and explains why we feel this way, and how we can be finally and lastingly satisfied. Watch it here:
And on this same subject, I’d also like to point you to this great post from The Joy of Germany: Does God have an address? It is so wonderful that we can know God’s address. Once we know where to find Him, we don’t have to wander around and hope to accidentally “bump into Him”… we can go directly to where He is located. He’s in our spirit!
Well, it’s nice to break the silence by sharing some online gems like this. If you have any great stuff to share with me, feel free to post in the comments or drop me a line somehow.
And hopefully it won’t be long before I’m back to tell you about my past four months :)
I just wanted to make a super quick post to let you know I haven’t forgotten about you. Even though it has been almost a month since I last made a post!
Since coming back from seeing my family in Miami (in early December), I’ve been super duper busy – and maybe by mid April things will slow down a little again. Or maybe not!
The other main reason I’ve not posted anything in so long is that my laptop screen died at the beginning of January, meaning I’ve not been able to get online at home (as I am a lo-tech geek without a smart phone or other such devices – and my Palm doesn’t see my home wireless). But I’ve actually been liking my zero access to the internet at home… it means that in the evenings I have had much more time to read the Bible and the ministry, and to go to bed early! I wish I had more time to post about my enjoyment in the Word and the ministry – and maybe next week I’ll try to set aside some time to make a post.
There have also been many events going on, and while I’m here maybe I’ll give you a quick tour. The bookshop opened in central London! I went a couple of times, and it is so nice. If you ever come through London, make it one of your priorities to visit! It is at 110 Pentonville Road, walking distance from King’s Cross St. Pancras and Angel tube station. If I lived nearer, I’d definitely be a regular, like many of the students in central London, and like the office workers working in the neighbourhood. This coming Saturday will be the first of monthly University Trainings taking place there. Wonderful!
FTTA and FTTXB trainees have just left (yesterday) after their two weeks here in Europe for gospel trips. They visited a number of countries in Europe in different teams, and and I thoroughly enjoyed the reports they gave on Wednesday morning. The saints here are now preparing for FTTL to restart on Monday, with trainees already beginning to return. And we’ve had a lot of snow! I’ll attach a couple of pictures below of the fun some of us sisters had on Lord’s day :)
Hopefully I’ll be back soon!
Note (05/05/12): I wrote this back in February, and didn’t get around to posting it then, I think because I wanted to add the pictures! Maybe I should try to just get something posted more regularly, regardless of whether I make it look “pretty” or not. Although having said that, I now have a phone that will make it much easier to upload pictures :)
