Melissa & Nicki Want to Check In with You Today! | P31 Online Bible Studies

Nicki Koziarz and I are excited to talk to y’all today! Join us in the video below as we chat about the Wait and See OBS, our assignments this week and the optional (but amazing) Conference Call Series we have beginning TOMORROW!

Note: All of our YouTube OBS videos are closed captioned for the deaf/hard-of-hearing. Click here for instructions on accessing closed captioning.


Let’s Chat:

Yesterday we got to know each other a little bit by introducing ourselves and sharing where we do our Bible study each day. Let’s continue the getting to know each other by answering this question today!

What’s the biggest obstacle for you in completing a Bible study?
Do you have a plan for how you can get past that? If so, share the obstacle and your plan. (Or if you don’t have a plan, but have an obstacle — share it with us, and maybe someone here can offer some help!)

I’ll go first: My biggest obstacle in completing a Bible study is staying as committed and excited in the end as I am in the beginning. I’m tempted to sleep in or say “I’ll do this later” but then not get to it. My plan: Accountability partner. Guess who mine is? It’s Nicki and all of you! That’s right, I’m letting you in on my weakness so feel free to call me out and ask me about it!

Nicki: The biggest obstacle for me is time! Most days I feel like I’m just a hamster trying to keep up on the never-ending wheel of stuff to do. But my plan is to do my study first thing in the morning before any interruptions. I love that everything comes right into our email inbox and I can even do Bible study in my bed before my feet hit the floor. I’m going to need Melissa to hold me accountable in not reading my other emails first though.

We can’t wait to read your answers!

Wait and See OBS

When Waiting is Hard | P31 Online Bible Studies

“As we wait, we find peace in God’s plans and hope in His pauses. Our focus moves from the object of our wait to the Person of our faith.”

I love this assurance that God is FOR us. It helps me remember we can trust Him with those vulnerable places that hold dreams we’ve never dared to share. And as we allow Him to have the deepest parts of our hearts, He moves us into a sweet place of trust where we begin to focus more on Him and less on the object of our wait.

Are you in the midst of waiting?
