Compared to Her - Bloom Talk #2
Saturday, 3 August 2019
1:30 - 4:00pm
North Hall, SLE Church
"I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation" (Philippians 4:12)
Comparing ourselves against the standards of others, is a common problem that most of us do instinctively – even Christians. In our last Bloom session, we discovered the destructive effects of this seemingly small problem. It can rob us from joy in our relationship with God and stop us from truly loving others. Jean Williams describes this heart condition as being: “more like cancer than the common cold…..It eats away at our happiness, our relationships, our very selves.”
However, there is a way to live which allows us to be at peace with ourselves, to love other sincerely and to enjoy life with God.
In the second of a two-part series on finding contentment as Christian women, we will (finally!) hear what God’s Word has to say about the cure for this widespread problem. We will uncover what is the “secret of contentment” – a life of real significance, satisfaction and security - and explore how to live healthy and contented lives in our relationship with God and others.
As always, Bloom sessions are designed to help women grow in understanding how God’s grace should transform various aspects of our lives. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to discover deep and lasting contentment in life!
Please RSVP by 30th of July! This will greatly help with planning and logistics for the event!
We hope to see you there 🙂
“I wish I were more outgoing like that woman in my bible study group. She can talk to anyone and make them feel welcome.”
“I don’t say it out loud, but I’m secretly glad when other people praise my child and say they are well-behaved and successful. I’m proud of the way we brought them up.”
“All my friends are dating and some are about to get married. I find myself thinking, ‘Why them? What’s wrong with me?’”
“It’s hard not to look at other women at the gym who are more toned or fit. If I put in more time and effort, I’m sure I’ll end up looking like that one day.”
Have you ever felt dissatisfied with your situation and relationships in life? We know that the Christian life is meant to be one of joy and contentment. So why do we often find it so hard to be content? What robs us of true joy and lasting contentment?
This upcoming Bloom session will be the first of a two-part series on finding true contentment as Christian women. We will explore the common problem of comparing ourselves to others and see how it robs us of true joy and lasting contentment. Sheena Abraham from St Lucia Bible Church will help us to spot the effects of discontentment in our lives and identify the cause of it.
As always, Bloom sessions are designed to help women grow in understanding how God’s grace should transform various aspects of our lives. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to have God’s Word do its work in renewing our minds as we sit under it together, and as we support and pray with each other in small groups.
Please RSVP by 21 April. This will help enormously with planning!
