We ended our year praising God with 1) God Is Able by Hillsong Live 2) The Lord Our God by Kristian Stanfill, and 3) The Well by Casting Crowns.

Kathy concluded “Re-Thinking Sabbath” and sent us into the summer to live out what we’ve been learning all year. Remember that all this year’s lectures are posted here on the site as well as the handouts.

See you in September!

Yesterday we worshipped by singing How Great Thou Art by Paul Baloche, The Lord Our God by Kristian Stanfill, and Jesus I am Resting Resting by Tricia Brock.

Kathy began her teaching on Sabbath rest using mainly excerpts from Exodus 20 (8-11) and Deuteronomy 5 (12-15), showing us that the Sabbath is a gift to us. Obedience to the Sabbath leads to blessing and freedom. We learned that Sabbath is 1) Counter-cultural – we have bought into half-truths about why we can’t rest on Sunday. 2) Supernatural – keeping the Sabbath helps us remember that He is the Lord who makes us holy and sanctifies us. 3) an Art – keeping the Sabbath takes practice and there is no set formula.

We praised God in song with 1) The Lord Our God by Kristian Stanfil, 2) God of the Impossible by Sara Reeves, and 3) On Jordan’s Stormy Banks by Jars of Clay

 

Kathy continued our mini-series on redefining work as we looked at:  I. Work got warped (Genesis 2, 3, 17), II. the Weight of Work (Exodus 33), and III. Worship in work (Psalm 90).

This week we sang 1) The Lord Our God by Kristian Stanfil 2) Breathe by Rebecca St. James and 3) Just As I Am by Travis Cottrell.

Kathy did a hefty review since many were absent or left early due to the snow last week. She then taught out of Psalm 50 reminding us that 1. God is always speaking, and correction is our friend 2. God sees our hearts and does not condemn 3. God doesn’t need our _____ 4. Everything belongs to and is controlled by God. She also gave examples from her own life of: 1) Open doors and 2) Old scores

*Please note, there are a few seconds of distortion near the beginning of the recording. It only lasts for a few seconds and the remainder of the recording is clear.

We kicked off our second semester in our new location with praise singing 1) The Lord Our God by Kristian Stanfil 2) Breathe by Rebecca St. James and 3) Be Thou My Vision by 4Him.

How thankful we are to God for His provision in so many ways as we begin a new semester in a new room at Covenant. Kathy’s teaching on the fresh breath God offers us was so timely and REFRESHING:)!

This week we began by worshipping God for being the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End…and for being greater than anything in our past, present or future. We sang 1) Whom Shall I Fear? by Chris Tomlin  2) Stronger by Hillsongs and 3) How Great Is Our God by Chris Tomlin.

 

Dana shared the work she had done on the Tool and Technique: Timeline, going through some of her “squares” with us. She demonstrated how believing lies affects our behaviors and how to arrest the process with God’s truth.

 

After the teaching we had a time of listening prayer as we heard Nichole Nordeman’s “I Am” and David Crowder’s “Here’s My Heart Lord”

* Focus on the Tool and Technique: Timeline this week for homework. We will begin this work now, and begin discussing it next week, but will continue it through the holidays. There is an alternate page called “TimelineSquares” (print several) that you can use if you don’t want to use the poster board/post it notes. There are many ways to do it, the point is to get with the Lord and ask Him what is on His heart for you and your timeline. Please contact Kathy or your group leader if you have any questions.

This week we had technical difficulties during praise and so we sang the Doxology accapella:).

We continued to look at God’s view of time as EDUCATIONAL, EXCLUSIVE(LY) HIS, and ETERNAL.

We sang 1) Everlasting God by Passion 2) The Lord Our God by Passion and 3) How Great Is Our God by Chris Tomlin.

We continued to look at more characteristics of Kairos time. It is SLOW, SANCTIFYING, and can seem SUDDEN.

We entered the courts of the Lord with 1) You Are My All In All by Dennis Jernigan and Natalie Grant, 2) Man of Sorrows by Hillsong, and 3) Here’s My Heart by David Crowder.

We discussed the different voices that we hear such as FEAR and FLESH, and were encouraged knowing that we have the CHOICE to enter the secret place of God’s presence so that the VOICE OF TRUTH becomes the loudest voice we hear.

Yesterday we exercised our faith muscles, just like our ancestor Abraham (Rom. 4:20), as we praised to 1) Come Thou Fount by David Crowder  2) The Lord Our God by Passion and 3) Help My Unbelief by Red Mountain Church.

 

We then examined Hebrews 4 looking at the PROMISE of God’s rest, the PROVISION of God’s Word and His Holy Spirit, and the PROCESS.
