Every life gets messy at times. Sometimes these messes are literal, like a house that would be easier to condemn than to clean. But sometimes they are intangible messes such as illness, conflict, depression, abuse, bankruptcy, divorce, and job loss. And these messes can be painful, hurting our hearts and our homes. But as we see in the Bible, God loves to use messy people!
In this six-week study, we will dig into the lives of biblical heroes who were messy people just like us but who were used by God in powerful ways. Together we will examine the stories of five wonderful but messy people and one messy parable character: Rahab, the Prodigal Son, Josiah, Mary, David, and Daniel. From their stories, we will learn how God can use broken people, restore damaged hearts and relationships, give us power to handle our critics, and help us deal with the hard moments of life. Along the way well discover that we dont have to just endure messy lives but can actually learn to thrive with Gods guidance and help. In the hands of God, our messes can become His masterpieces!
The DVD contains six video segments featuring Jennifers engaging teaching (approximately 10-15 minutes each) for use during the group sessions, and offers closed captioning.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook and Leader Guide.
