When Wallflowers Dance by Angela Thomas – Week 6


Welcome to Week Six of Angela Thomas’ “When Wallflowers Dance:  Becoming a Woman of Righteous Confidence”.

This week’s video, “The Holy Spirit” brought to light several facts about the Holy Spirit and our relationship to Him.  First, we received the assurance from Acts 2:38 that the Holy Spirit lives in everyone who has accepted Christ as Savior.  Second, the Holy Spirit will glorify God in my life (John 16:13-15).  Third, Hebrews 2:4 teaches us that we can’t boss the Holy Spirit around.  Fourth, the Holy Spirit falls on people (Acts 10:44).  Fifth, He is our power (Acts 1:8).  And I’m intrigued by the following formula:  maturity = time + the consistent covering of the Holy Spirit.

This week’s homework, “The Spirit of God” gave us a too quick overview of Who the Holy Spirit is:  in us, to us, for us.  This time in the Scriptures and Angela’s commentary really whet my appetite to be a more appropriate vessel for Him.  How often is He offended by my behavior, my thoughts, my heart?  I pray that you are equally impacted to be a vessel that is more honoring of His Spirit.

I was disappointed that there were no “Girlfriend Nudges” included in this week’s study.  However, we did receive several nuggets of incredible advice on how to live in the margin notes.
