In this 8-week Bible study author Becky Harling pairs Jesus’s I Am statements with questions he asked His followers and viewers. Asking readers to answer these questions personally, Harling challenged and encouraged me, meeting me right where I was at this time in my faith and in my life.
As a member of the social media launch team I received the study and other related resources for free. I appreciate the opportunity this afforded me to read the material and engage with the community of promoters and Becky Harling herself.
This is the first time I went through a Bible study of this kind and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Through the study I developed a stronger habit of prayer, journaling, and getting into God’s Word. It brought conviction regarding my focus on Christ as the center of my life and taught me to trust Him more as I made difficult life decisions.
Repeatedly God reminded me through Becky Harling’s words that He loves me, wants the best for me, and will lead me if I open myself up to Him. Even though He may call me to something uncomfortable or “scary,” I can trust Him, knowing that He has my best interest at heart.
Not only convicting, but encouraging, God’s Word and Harling’s guiding questions reminded me to stay close to God as the Vine and allow Him to work in and through me instead of relying on myself to produce fruit in my life.
To be honest, the end of this study met me at a time of a faith crisis that I won’t get into here. But I am thankful that I can look back on the pages of this study and the subsequent journal entries and see what God taught me throughout my time of studying.
I recommend this study to anyone and everyone. Whether you are firm or floundering in your faith. You may have a million questions about Christ or you may think you already have all the answers. Regardless, I highly suggest diving into this study ready to grow.
I want to send a special Thank you to Becky Harling for writing this study, for allowing me to be a part of her promotion team, and for being available when I needed answers to questions and answers to prayer.
