Jeremiah Study

I have posted the first part of my Jeremiah Study. There is a link here under my Bible Study list, or you can click here. This is Chapters 1-10. It may take you over a week, and that's fine! This is just how I have broken it up. I would feel honored if you would try this study out for me. I have not taught it yet, so you will be my guinea pigs! (That's a great sell, hu?)
This Bible Study is a totally overwhelming task for me. When God pulled my heart toward this book over a year ago, and drew amazing truths out of it for me, I couldn't deny the call to write about it. But if you've ever done my studies before, you know they're brief. So a book that's over 50 chapters, and one as daunting as Jeremiah, scares the life out of me! I am almost half-way through. Pray for me to have the stamina to finish. I could never do this on my own!!!
This book is all about rebellion, and it is so convicting and applicable. Jeremiah's example of boldness and steadfastness has become a beacon for me.
We are choosing Treston's middle name when we adopt him, and it's going to be Jeremiah, according to Jeremiah 1:5
"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world."
That is what we are claiming for our Treston!
I hope you'll come to love the book of Jeremiah along with me!

I started the Jeremiah study this morning and I can not wait to see how the Lord is going to change me. I am so thankful that I do not have to go to the store to buy a study. God has equipped a wonderful lady in my church to help me study the bible. Thank you!! He spoke to my heart this morning about all the idols I have in my life. And you are right the old testament relates to us too!! We are crazy to think that it doesn't.

Thank you,
Ana Williams
