Resources for the Delight in the Lord Bible Study

The Delight in the Lord Bible Study begins on Monday, November 2nd!

All the resources are free for this study
but there is an optional Study Guide
available on Amazon titled:
Delight in the Lord

The Study Guide is optional, as I will provide for you the daily Bible Reading Plan and many free resources each week here on the blog. BUT I highly recommend the Study Guide.  It provides space for your daily gratitude list and daily prayer requests, plus a place to keep all of your Bible study reflections/SOAKs and video notes.

If you’d like to purchase a printable-digital copy
(so you have it right away) at half the price
click the Buy Now button below.


Here’s the topic schedule:

November 2nd – Week 1: Delight

Start a daily gratitude list and delight in the Lord, the giver of good gifts.

Go buy an extra-large candle and light a candle everyday in your home.  Each time the glimmer of the candle catches your eye, stop, pray and give thanks.

Rejoice in the Lord always;
I will say it again, rejoice.
(Philippians 4:4)

November 9th – Week 2: Draw Near

Slow down, be still, listen, pray and commune with the God of the universe.  He is near. 

Keep your candle going and add to it soft music everyday in your home.  Choose worship, classical or another form of peaceful music that helps you focus on the Lord.

The Lord is near.
(Philippians 4:5)

November 16th – Week 3: Desires

Take your desires to the Lord in prayer this week. 

Keep your candle burning, the music playing and purchase a small bouquet of flowers for yourself.  Let that bouquet be a daily reminder of God’s love  and presence with you.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
(Philippians 4:6)

November 23rd – Week 4: Dependence

It takes faith to rest in the Lord and depend solely on him but he is trustworthy.  Delight, draw near, and exchange his desires for yours and depend on God.  He loves you so!

Rest is a need not a want.  Rest is not optional and it is a blessing from the Lord.  So, seek out a place of solitude to rest and pray. Get alone with God outside or in your home.  Be still with God and take a much needed bubble bath, nap or still time with the Lord.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4:7)

Our souls desperately need a deeper connection with God.

So many times we try to mask our struggles, pain, confusion or emptiness by keeping busy and distracted, eating food, going on vacations, seeking success or elevating certain relationships. While many of these things are blessings from God, they are not good substitutes FOR God.

This Bible Study is going to help you slow down.

It is going to force you to pause every day and enter into the presence of our Almighty God.

God’s pace is much slower than this world’s pace.

We must slow down to catch up with God.

We must create calm moments in our day because it’s in the unhurried moments, that we can clearly see and hear the voice of God.

Self-care is a very popular concept these days, but I believe that soul care IS self-care.

So, let’s take care of our souls by intentionally creating a physical environment, as well as a spiritual environment, in our homes that brings us closer to God.  As a result, we will experience peace and a sense of calmness inside our souls, no matter what we are facing.

  • Each week, I will provide for you a practical challenge of something I do in my home that makes it more of a haven.  I hope you will take the challenges.  They do make a difference!
  • Each weekday, we will pause, give thanks, pray and meditate on God’s Word through SOAKing in the daily scripture reading for the day.
  • Also, you will find 4 videos, one per week, that correspond with the scriptures we are studying.

I encourage you to give yourself permission to not have your to-do list all checked off in order for you to slow down and catch up with God.

David writes in Psalm 42:1, 2:

“As the deer pants for streams of water,
    so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
    When can I go and meet with God?”

I pray that your time spent in God’s Word will bless your soul and quench your thirst and that you will live well, as you drink from the living well, the living words of God.  (John 4:13-14) .

I can’t wait to take this journey with you!

Are you in?  

If you are – it’s time to prepare for the first challenge by going out and purchasing a large candle.  Share in the comments what your favorite scent is!

There are no sign-ups or enrollments.  Don’t forget to invite your friends!  I’ll see you back here on November 2nd as we begin!

Walk with the King,

Courtney
