“The Messy Middle”: An Overview of Nehemiah (Video)

Hello, friends!

As some of you know, several of my Instagram followers (along with myself) are currently participating in the second round of “Your Best New Self 21 Day Challenge”! Well, today is August 14, 2019, which marks day 9 of our challenge and the first day of reading through Nehemiah!

In honor of starting Nehemiah, I decided to kick things off by inviting my dear friend, Stephanie O’Brien-Martin, to help lead a video overview of the book! In this overview, Stephanie shares her story, while also revealing to us how the book of Nehemiah can apply directly to our daily lives and can help us get through what she calls “The Messy Middle”. (See bottom of blog for video.)

I thought I should start posting my Instagram Lives I do every Wednesday on here if you like watching Vlogs!

In this IG Live, we’re continuing out theme of “how to manage emotions in a healthy way.” One of the key lessons we’ll discuss is, “Sometimes we have to just ‘let go and let God’ in order to find peace and happiness.” This, along with a few other key lessons, is our focus for this study going through Ecclesiastes 3.

If you would like to participate in a live recording, follow me on Instagram (@helenelizabethspeaks) and click my profile picture every Wednesday at 12pm cst. You’ll be joining me and hundreds of others as we make the Bible applicable to our daily lives.

Forgiving Ourselves: Luke 15:1-24 IG Live Bible Study

In case you missed our weekly “Best New Self” Instagram (IG) Live Bible Study covering Luke 15:1-24 this week, here’s a replay (see video below)! While studying Luke 15 to prepare for our study, I was greatly reminded of the time period when I finally saw my way of life for what it was – hurtful and sinful – and wanted nothing more than to repent from my old way of living and be made new in Christ. This chapter paints such a beautiful picture of how God waits for us to see the errors of our ways, as well as how He searches for us when we’re lost. I love this chapter of the Bible because it shows me just how much our Father loves us. In each example given in this chapter we see that a prized possession is lost. Why? Because Jesus is trying to tell us that WE are His prized positions, and He wants nothing more than for us to be saved and have a close relationship with Him.
