Fulfilled Study - Week 5


We have two weeks left in our study of the book Fulfilled by Danise Jurado. How are you doing? Are there particular parts you keep going back to? Maybe a chapter you've reread a couple of times? If you'd like to share, please feel free to leave a comment on any of the Fulfilled posts. 

If you're looking for any of the posts in the Fulfilled study, click on the #Fulfilled label in the side bar on the left.

This week: Read Chapter 8—Perseverance, Chapter 9—Joy, and Chapter 10—Hope (3 chapters, but they are short)

When you finish reading, consider these questions:
  • It can be difficult to persevere through challenging times, especially when there seems to be no end in sight. Do you struggle to persevere when the road in front of you feels long? How do you keep moving forward when you’re tempted to give up?
  • Unlike happiness, joy is not dependent on circumstances or other people around us. Happiness is about us. Joy is about God. What does the difference between joy and happiness mean to you?
  • Danise writes, “Hope cannot be based on our circumstances because situations change, sometimes daily.” (pg. 95)
  • Life is constantly changing, but God is unchanging—yesterday, today, and tomorrow, God is constant. How does God’s unchanging presence help you get through the daily change going on around you?
Have a great week!

In Christ,
Laura
