    God is so AWESOME!! There is so much here and not enough time to say it all, but a big THANK YOU. I know that this took much time and prayer to write as I can smell the sweet aroma wafting from the words on the screen. This study clearly summarizes EVERYTHING to walking a fruitful life with the Lord. It could be laid overtop of any topic: Biblical Submission, Godly Parenting, Ministry to others, Self discipline, etc. etc. As I close this year and reflect ALL that God has taught me this year, “The Way of Cain” perfectly summarizes it. Even today, AFTER, my prayer time of confession to the Lord that I felt a little stagnant and down cast…knowing full well it was of my own doing…weeds of gluttony, idleness, and the such had started growing. I turn to your study and find such quotes as:

    ” I was appalled to learn that I had foolishly been substituting KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WORD for OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD…a dangerous cancer indeed, in the Body of Christ. We must understand, however, that to find ourselves in ‘the pit’ is not a shame. The shame is staying there.”


    “It is through the necessity of REMEMBERING our own personal Mitzrayims (Hebrew: Egypt – root word tsoor literally meaning confinement, enclosure and bondage) from which He drew us out of, that we avoid growing luke-warm and falling out of love with our First Love; thus perverting His grace into destructive and unsatisfying self-love.”

    The Lord greatly used Exodus 14:13-14 to set me free from Egypt this year,

    “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which he will accomplish for you today; for he Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.”

    So reading your lesson about Egypt and not turning back, but going forward in genorosity and obedience was a wonderful reminder. Finally, I loved this quote,

    “And the divine purposes of Christ’s Holy Spirit is never to condemn us for where we are, but always to restore us to where HE is. David cried out in spirit and truth when he said in Psalm 57:2, ‘I call to God, the Most High, to God, Who is accomplishing His purpose for me.’”

    because it is a refreshing reminder that in my sin, my failures, and my disobedience, Jesus is always gentle in His discipline.

    Thank you again, Carmen, and I look forward to spending more time around the Well with you.

    Carmen ..I want to Thank You for sharing this study. These last 4 weeks have been quite the learning experience …eye opening ..and spirit filling. I read in an old decotion “The Two Listeners” a passage the other day ..that basicly said the more we strive to walk in the way of our Lord ..the more we realize how very far from being like him we are. It was such a true statement. The closer I feel like I grow ..the more I realize how short I fall ..Thank Goodness for His Grace and Mercy !

    May you and your family be ever so Blessed ..Thank you for sharing your God given talent and Wisdom …

    Blessings ..Sara
