My posts may go through a bit of a change for a little while. I am attending an 8 week workshop called, "I'm Stuck, But I Want to be Free" or as we call it on our Salt and Light group, "Freedom Workshop". Last night was the first session. I will be learning, among other things, how to recognize when I am having conversations with myself (do you ever do that?) and instead converse with God. I will also be following a specified Bible reading plan and memorizing scriptures. I would love to have you join me as I go on this adventure.
*all memory verses and scripture will be in NLT unless otherwise stated.
This week's memory verses:
My heart has heard You say, "Come and talk with Me," and my heart responds, "Lord, I am coming."
I cry out to God without holding back.
One of my first assignments is to read Romans 4 and Psalm 140. For this post I'm going to focus on Psalm 140. My task was to read the psalm and write in the margin of my Bible the emotion that is coming through to me from the words. But first let me explain what a David Dump is. Basically it was David crying out to God without holding back. God wants us to do the same thing so let's learn from how David did it.
