Amen! Thanks for moderating and looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us.February 12, 2021 at 6:30 am #679Elizabeth MowdyParticipant
Yes, AMEN for serving, Franklin. Hello from Fremont, CA. It’s wonderful to have classmates from all over the globe, let alone the USA. I’m happy God has led me to this course, to Patrick and all of you.
I have been reading the Bible before sleep and have been bringing my Bible to work. My habit was to work as I ate lunch at my desk, but now I have been using my 30 minute lunch to read. I have the YouVersion Bible App, use it often, and love it but I have been enjoying the experience of reading the pages in my hand. I do have terrible phone reception / connection / service at work, so this choice works well for me.February 12, 2021 at 8:32 am #682

Amen, Franklin. Many thanks for your encouragement!February 13, 2021 at 12:55 am #691Elizabeth MowdyParticipant
Yes, I like to listen to the audio as I drive or as my eyes grow tired at night. Soothing voice on the Bible app 🙂 Agreeing with Rojan – thanks for all of the encouragement!February 13, 2021 at 3:56 am #695
Ohh Rojon and Elizabeth we thank God for his guidance and we are here to encourage each other. So let’s keep inviting friends here and new let’s spread the word. I will be waiting to hear your progress on the RTB1February 17, 2021 at 6:43 am #715

Thank you, Franklin. I’m on Nicky Gumbel’s Bible in One Year Plan for the fourth year. It’s finally working for me – Patrick’s guidance on just reading through and setting aside the “verse study” when it pops out for another time and purpose is very helpful! Now, recalibrating to going through it “with understanding” instead of simply accomplishing the goal to get through it. Here’s the link to it, very helpful in staying on the real mark, to read through it with understanding: https://deshenschool.com/forums/topic/please-read-as-we-continue-to-read/
My “daily feed” has also narrowed down to personal devotion, bible-reading and Deshen devotional with a few others that I have “grown-up” with or firmly led to. The unction does not seem to come to “free-flow surf” as before outside of these few intentional and personal subscriptions. That adventure may just be for a season but glad nonetheless to be able to stay on point for this mission for the season: clean-up (shed anything that hinders especially that which easily entangles) and build-up (in The Word) to line up with His will and purpose.
Blessings everyone!February 19, 2021 at 2:15 am #724LidiaParticipant
Is there a way to show you what I have completed in my assignment? I would like to get some feedback. I purchased the Logos Fundamentals, but I feel it did not helped as such. I get going back and forth looking for different programs.
God Bless YouFebruary 19, 2021 at 2:22 am #725
That is wonderful Rojan its amazing you accomplishment for the past 4 years .this is the 3rd year for me and am determined to finish this year.so thanks for the encouragement brother.Stay blessed you are right on track .February 19, 2021 at 2:31 am #726
Lidia I have the same struggles here bought the logos fundamental too and it still a struggle at list you are even done .But don’t beat urself, that’s why we are students of the Bible. it may take few tries but we will get it this time .we have a good teacher and the lord will grant us understanding of his word.But you can send it directly to Patrick and he can help with guidance. Stay blessed Lidia and if u think I can help in any way let me know.we could even study together thru only if it was not this late.February 22, 2021 at 6:04 am #743LidiaParticipant
Dear Beloved of King Jesus,
I want to share a funny thing that happened to me last night. So I been working on the following verse found in Colossians 3:2
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
Yesterday, I woke up in the middle of the night analyzing the verse. The whole verse came to my mind. This was around 3:00 am…. I think the word “Set” came appearing in my dream. For those of you that have taken this class before is this normal? 😂 I actually like the fact that my mind is staying on things above.February 22, 2021 at 6:42 pm #745
That is an amazing experience seriously.I have had something like that and wish for more . Because now when I read the Bible am already on study mode which I know is wrong for now because I get distracted easily. But to have experience like that in a dream ohh , wonderful that is Lidia . Stay Blessed and may the lord continue to guid uFebruary 26, 2021 at 6:38 pm #750Patrick ObenKeymaster
That is an interesting story there Lidia! That is quite a very good thing. It is the result of your mind focusing on the Word. Such a great experience that is. The Lord take you into deeper and deeper experiences with Him!
