Women’s Spring Study: Glory Days (Living Your Promised Land Life Now)
Wednesdays at Noon January 11–April 26
New Beginnings Classroom

Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. January 12–April 27
New Beginnings Classroom

Are you living your Promised land life now? The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck. Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Running on empty. You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can’t remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced

an answered prayer. You’re ghting the same battles you fought the day you came to Christ. You’re out of Egypt, but Egypt’s not out of you. Isn’t Christian life supposed to be better than this? Jesus offers abundant joy. Yet you live with oppressive grief. The epistles speak of grace. You shoulder guilt. You are more than a conqueror yet are commonly conquered by temptation or weaknesses.
