WINTER BOOK club – week Four

Welcome to week four of “Calm My Anxious Heart”

 

This week before you meet on February 15th you will need to read:

  • Chapters 6-7: “Never Enough” & “A Faulty Focus”

The key verse(s) for you to memorize and/or meditate on this week are:

  • Ephesians 5:15-16

Discussion questions for this week will include (unique questions for the week are in bold):

  • If you had to pick one statement or idea from each chapter that you feel is the most important or powerful, which would it be? 

    • In chapter 6, beginning on p. 97, the author has a section titled “What Can You Do At Your House?” in which she offers some suggestions for applying the truth presented in relation to greed: search your heart, cut the ropes, submit to plastic surgery, beware of seasonal greed, have an attitude of gratitude, and share your wealth.  Which of these potential applications resonated most with you? Or is there some other action step you feel God is calling you to make to loosen the grip of greed in your life?

    • In chapter 7, you will be challenged to begin formulating (or refining) a life purpose statement. At the bottom of p. 118, Dillow says to start with one statement or Bible verse that describes what you believe about God and his plan for you. What would this be for you? If you were to turn that into a “rough draft” of a life purpose statement, what would it say?

  • What’s something you had a question about, or maybe disagreed with?

  • What did you learn about God from each chapter? (Might not be a “brand-new-never-had-this-thought-before thing, but could also be something you already know but needed to be reminded of)

  • What did you learn about yourself from each chapter?
