Prayer Request



Dearest Friends,

As we grow closer and closer to the start of our Bible study, the enemy's attacks have strengthened in both frequency and intensity. I am asking for your prayers. It never fails- whenever I step out in faith and obedience, especially if it is teaching God's Word- I get sick. Every. Single. Time. It's like clockwork. And I do not believe that it is happenstance or mere coincidence. The enemy does not want to see God's Word declared- especially through mediums such as this blog where the potential for those to read/hear these truths spoken is innumerable and completely at the mercy of the Holy Spirit.

Though I expected this to happen and sought to prevent it in any way I could, God- in His Sovereignty- allowed it. Perhaps it is to remind me of my dependence on His Strength? Or maybe it is to humble me of my pride so that I would come to you and ask for your prayers? I do not know the Lord's reasons, nor am I entitled to, but I trust Him completely. So whether I am still coughing up a storm or completely healed, we will proceed with the Bible study on Thursday regardless of how I am feeling.

I am excited and anxious to see how God is going to show Himself through this study!




Come, Lord Jesus. Have Your way in us. 
May our hearts be soft and pliable, so as to yield and bend at Your touch
 - Amen

    1. Shannon-
      I am thrilled that you wish to join us! Every morning, beginning November 1st, I will post a short video discussing a different Name of God that is found in Scripture. (Don't worry if you miss a day. They can be found on the page {Mornings with Meg} that is located at the top of the blog). Then, every Monday evening at 8:00 CST, beginning November 5th, I will host a Google+ hangout where we will discuss as a group the Names that we studied the week before. It will be a great way to build community and study Scripture at the same time :)

  2. I was just studying Job this morning. God allows Satan to get near us, but God knows that His children will prevail and glorify Him. May you rest in the knowledge that God is cheering you on and He knows that you will be victorious.
    Praying for you. Xoxo

  4. I've experienced the same thing Megan. Be encouraged. The enemy launches full blown attacks when he's scared. Praying that the Lord's anointing would cover you from the crown of your head to the souls of your feet. Praying for His healing hand to touch you and His grace to consume you.
    I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Phil 3:14
