As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed ... not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant-filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy.
In this six-week Bible study, Hayley DiMarco walks us through the story of Mary, Jesus' mother, who knew what it was like to be overwhelmed. As we explore Mary's life-from the news that she would give birth to God's Son to the day she witnessed his tragic death on the cross-we find ourselves on a journey from overwhelming joy to overwhelming sorrow and back again, learning along the way how to be consumed with the mission of God rather than the "mission of me."
Each week explores a part of Mary's story along with practical and biblical application related to a particular aspect of life that can make us feel overwhelmed. As we dig into Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments, Hayley shows us how to find freedom by becoming overwhelmed instead with who God is-learning to "treasure in our hearts" what we know about God so that we can hold onto faith even when it seems that all is lost. Get ready to discover how to have an amazingly overwhelming relationship with God!
The Leader Guide contains six session plan outlines, complete with discussion points and questions, activities, prayers, and more-plus leader helps for facilitating a group.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit.
