A Woman's Heart That Dances Study  - 
 
July 09, 2016 — August 20, 2016
A SPECIAL INVITATION
Catherine Martin’s Online Bible Study — Summer 2016
A Woman’s Heart That Dances — A Devotional Journey

Dear friends, I would like to invite you to join me for our Summer 2016 Online Bible Study of A Woman’s Heart That Dances — Keeping In Step With God’s Design For You.

From the Foreword by Author & Speaker, Ney Bailey … this book encouraged me to dance on the inside in my own relationship with the Lord. Just as I have been, I believe you will be drawn into A Woman’s Heart That Dances and will experience a closer, more intimate relationship with Jesus.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Our dance with the Lord permeates every aspect of our life. And in every situation, whether easy or hard, good or bad, simple or difficult, the Lord wants to dance with you. Our Lord is extending His hand, inviting you to lean in to His embrace and let Him lead, fulfilling His plan and purpose in your life.

"Will You Dance with Me?"

Do you long to feel chosen? To be asked to the dance? To partner with the One who can lead you through the intricate turns of your life with a steady, sure hand — and with the assurance of love that will never fail? Join Catherine Martin as she explores the image of the dance, and discover how you can recognize and respond to the Lord’s surprising invitations to you, engage in the romance and adventure of an intimate, personal relationship with Him, and follow His lead as He choreographs the story of your life. Your experience with God will grow deeper and richer as you recognize His overtures to you and say …

"Yes, Lord, I will dance with You."

THE GREAT INVITATION

How lovely are Your dwelling places, O LORD of hosts! My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. Psalm 84:1-2

Written across the pages of Scripture in broad strokes is the great invitation of a majestic God of love who invites you, His beloved, to come away with Him. He longs for you to dwell with Him, commune with Him, and delight in Him. He desires to keep company with you every moment of your day…In Him you will find true meaning and purpose. As you draw near to Him today, listen for His call to your heart: "'For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart’” (Jeremiah 29:11-13).

IS PARENTING EASY? ~ Proverbs 23:26 ~ When you received the news that you were expecting your first child, your heart was most likely giddy with excitement. Your enthusiasm grew more and more with each day and a multitude of questions filled your mind. Can I be a good parent to this child that God has so graciously given me? Will I be someone my child can and will trust? How will I ever do this? God, will You please help me?

WHEN YOU JUST NEED TO HANG IN THERE

Therefore, since God in His mercy has given us this new way, we never give up. 2 Corinthians 4:1 NLT

The pilgrim of God acts differently from one who is in the world. He or she has different priorities, affections, and attachments. The pilgrim evaluates events in a different way from the world. Quantity is not as important as quality. Obscurity is not a failure, and poverty is not a liability. The greatest Friend of the pilgrim is the One who cannot be seen yet is ever present and who leads every step of the way: the Lord Jesus Christ. And when the pilgrim steps from time into eternity, he or she will be met by this One who has led. Face to face, the pilgrim will have the great pleasure of hearing those wonderful words: “Well done, good and faithful servant!” (Matthew 25:21).…ask God to give you a pilgrim’s heart with a single eye and single purpose, that you might run your race with endurance until you see Him face to face.

+Tina Nash Your words are such a blessing and I love what you shared about how the bush is burning in your life!! The burning bush of God's Word - yes, let's encourage each other as sisters in Christ to set our faces as "flint" to His light and voice - YES! It's in Isaiah 50:7 "For the Lord GOD helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced; Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed." Amen! Love, Catherine

DRAWING NEAR TO GOD

Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him! Psalm 34:8 NLT

As you resolve to draw near to God, you will reap the tremendous eternal benefits of time alone with Him. Your life will be transformed in a powerful way...Are you willing to be God's pilgrim and to launch out on the great journey of contemplating the fathomless, tasting the infinite, and delighting in God's incomprehensible love? If so, gather your materials, set aside a time, find a place, and draw near to your great God.

THE GLORY OF CHRIST IN YOU

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT

The Holy Spirit transforms you inwardly, making you like Christ…More and more, you will look like Jesus. His beauty will shine through you. What has happened in you will become apparent in your actions, and you will love others like Jesus…Oh, how incredible it is when God transforms a life. And that is what He will do in you as you are filled continually with the Holy Spirit. You will become a man or woman of God, fulfilling the plans and purposes He has in mind for you. He will set your heart on fire. And when your heart burns with love for Him, that love will spread to those around you.

A Woman’s Heart That Dances — A Devotional Journey
Online Bible Studies with Catherine Martin
WEEK FIVE

I recently discovered a beautiful rose garden in Newport Beach, California. Fortunately, I had my Nikon D810 camera along with a new macro lens designed to create a velvety glow in close-up images – the Lensbaby Velvet 56. So I stopped to focus in on each rose, looking for ones that I could capture as special images for the myPhotoWalk devotional photography collection of flowers.

There were so many beautiful roses, each one unique and colorful. Then, I saw this particular one — the curves and the folds just dancing in this garden. And there were also imperfections, some discoloration and a few brown edges. But the rose didn’t seem to care. Still, it danced.

Oh, what a picture this is of us with our Lord. We may be experiencing a trial. We may be struggling and weak. Even now, the Lord is inviting us to lean in to His embrace and dance. He loves us and will tell a story in and through our lives, even in this present difficulty. This is what we are learning in our study of A Woman’s Heart That Dances, especially this week in Chapters 9 (Romance) and 10 (Story). As we are nearing the end of our study, these truths about our dance with the Lord are vital in order to truly dance in an intimate relationship with Him in life.

Oh friend, let us all be like this rose in God’s garden of grace. In spite of all that may be happening in our lives, let us live in the romance and story of the dance with our Lord. Remember how loved you are by the Lord Jesus. He is inviting you to dance with Him, even now.

He will spread through you the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14). He promises.

So dance, dear friend. Dance.

God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!
— Catherine

SOLA SCRIPTURA DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

LIFTING UP YOUR SOUL TO GOD

To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust, do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me. Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed. Psalm 25:1-3

What is your first response when you are faced with a trial in your own life? The first and best offensive strike is to use the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and a prayer of trust to your Lord…No wonder David’s psalms are filled with prayers of trust to his Lord. Over and over again, David cried out to the Lord for help and then declared what God was able to do…David affirmed his trust in God when he said, “In the Lord I put my trust” (Psalm 11:1 NKJV). Trust shines in the stormy environment. John Henry Jowett describes David’s experience this way: “The sun is down. The stars are hid. The waters are out. The roads are broken up. And in the very midst of the darkness and desolation one hears the triumphant cry of the psalmist, ‘In the Lord put I my trust.’ The singer is a soul in difficulty. He is the victim of relentless antagonists. He is pursued by implacable foes. The fight would appear to be going against him. The enemies are overwhelming and, just at this point of seeming defeat and imminent disaster, there emerges this note of joyful confidence in God. ‘In the Lord put I my trust.’ It is a song in the night.” Trusting In The Names Of God - A Quiet Time Experience - Catherine Martin (http://www.quiettime.org/online-store/tngaqte-book/)

THE BEAUTY OF ALWAYS GETTING STRONGER

They go from strength to strength. Psalm 84:7

The psalmist says that those who set their hearts on pilgrimage “go from strength to strength” (Psalm 84:7). This is the pattern of consistency in the believer’s life. You will consistently draw upon God’s resources, experience spiritual growth, and become a mature pilgrim in Christ. Thomas Watson said, “Godliness being engraved in the heart by the Holy Ghost, as with the point of a diamond, can never be erased.” There is no mistaking the work of God in the heart of a person: “He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6). From outward appearances, your life may appear to be fluctuating with the circumstances of your life. But as a pilgrim of God, you are being renewed day by day. You may be outwardly weak, but when you are weak, He is strong. At times you may be down, but you are not out. You have learned to draw near to God, even in the hard times. As a result, you “go from strength to strength.” Pilgrimage Of The Heart - Satisfy Your Longing For Adventure With God - Catherine Martin (http://www.quiettime.org/online-store/pohqths-book/)

A Woman’s Heart That Dances — A Devotional Journey
Online Bible Studies with Catherine Martin
WEEK SIX

Life is filled with many surprises. Some surprises are just wonderful and fill us with great joy.

But the fact is that this life is not all there is, nor is it the best there is.

There is something more.

There is forever with the Lord.

We have been looking at the beauty and wonder of our dance with the Lord in A Woman’s Heart That Dances. The greatest promise of all is that our dance continues on into eternity. We have something to look forward to that no difficulty, no obstacle, no disappointment, and no person in this life can ever take from us.

Heaven is our destination. And we are on a journey to our forever life with the Lord.

Paul tells us that there is one truth that we can hang on to and use to comfort one another — “so we shall always be with the Lord” (2 Thessalonians 4:17).

I am looking forward to heaven. I can’t wait to see the Lord and all my beloveds who are living there now including my mother and father.

So dear friend, as we close out our study in A Woman’s Heart That Dances, I want to encourage us all to lean in to the Lord’s embrace and follow His lead in our dance with Him. He will tell an amazing story on this dance floor of life. And when we step into heaven, we shall see our Eternal Dance Partner face to face. Oh what a smile shall come to our face in that moment as we look into the eyes of our Lord. We will know that it was worth it all. And we will be filled with joy and thankfulness that we danced with Him both now and forever.

So dear friend, keep dancing. And look forward to that day when you see His face. You will know it was worth it all.

God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!
— Catherine

WHEN YOU NEED FAITH

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen…And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him. Hebrews 11:1-3, 6 NLT

There is a gallery that God has filled — not with art — but with people. God desires that you walk through His Gallery of Faith (Hebrews 11), and study each person to understand the kind of faith He wants you to have. This kind of faith pleases Him and will help you run your race in life and cross the finish line…Faith is the ability to see beyond temporal circumstances to the eternal realities of God and His promises, and as a result, take God at His Word and act on His promises in spite of conflicting circumstances, thoughts, and feelings.

Good Morning Friends,
Grab your #coffee or #tea,
Come study the #Bible with me
Daily Bible Reading “How Excellent is Thy Loving-kindness, O God!” (Psalm 36:1-12)
Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 36:1-12. Psalm 36 is a Psalm of David to the Chief Musician, which means it was probably used as a song of worship.

THE PATH TO TRANSFORMATION

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 NLT

What will be the result of truth from God’s Word in your life? What you believe determines who you are. Who you are determines how you live. And how you live determines the direction of your life…Your decision to open the Bible every day to look into the mirror and see truth from God makes you a light in a world filled with much darkness. Jesus said, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). People who are committed to the truth will impact a culture. They will not just claim a life of love and joy but will be committed to it and carry it out in the place where they live. May you and I impact our culture because we live out the truth that we discover in God’s Word.

HE HOLDS YOU IN HIS HAND

My times are in Your hand. Psalm 31:15

God holds the events of your life in His hand. When you wonder what is going on in your life and when you feel as though life is passing you by, get out your spiritual pen and write a check on this promise…In the Lord’s hand, your greatest disappointments can become His appointments. His broad hand is creatively at work in and through you. His hand can restore lost years (Joel 2:25), cause all things to work together for good (Romans 8:28), give you all good things (Psalm 84:11), refresh you (Acts 3:19), and manifest through you the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14). His hand made you His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for a purpose—to do good works that He prepared beforehand (Ephesians 2:10)…God’s hand will exalt you at exactly the proper time and will perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you (1 Peter 5:6,10). Take comfort in the hand that holds you. It is the large and powerful hand of God.

WHEN YOU NEED TO TRUST GOD FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE

Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! I am God, and there is none like Me. Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish. Isaiah 46:9-10 NLT

The foundation of your trust depends on knowing your God. And how can you know your God? By discovering His names in His Word. The more you know of God, the more you will trust Him. And is that not always so? You cannot trust whome you do not know. But when you know someone to be reliable, you are willing to trust him. And so it is with God. Will you take some time now to tell the Lord how much you want to know Him and then, as a result, how much you want to trust Him?
