    I must admit I was not thrilled with the thought of studying Genesis. But God, as he always does, changed me through this study. It is now one of my favorite SRT studies. The geode visual really struck a chord with me. In fact I spoke with my students about it at our morning meeting that day. They began researching geodes and looking for places I could buy them. It was such a wonderful experience, as was this study.

    I loved this study. It is good to go back to the beginning and see God’s plan, and it helps inform my study of the rest of scripture. Looking forward to Philippians.

    I LOVED this study! I actually felt sad yesterday knowing it came to an end. I also enjoyed listening to the podcast during my runs. I felt we dug deep into Genesis and I learned so much along with you. I love how God answers prayer even in the little things. Yesterday I felt busy all day long. Thankfully my day started with SRT because after that it was go, go and go. Even after work. But God answered prayer and gave me strength as I took care of a couple of important things immediately after work. It got crazy busy but God was taking care of it and I didn’t even feel tired. I even slept 8 hours last night. Have a blessed day sisters. I love you all very much! Prayers are appreciated as I’m off for a long distance run with our kids from our school. It’s a chilling night 39° here but it’s going to warm up fast.

    Thank you SRT for this study! I really enjoyed going deep in Genesis. I was happy Jacob was buried with Leah, felt so bad for her being the unloved wife! I appreciate the dysfunctioally humanity in these stories, as well as all through the Bible. Makes me feel comfortable in my mess!

    1. Mari V says:

      Thank you for sharing this Lisa. Many times I feel the same way about the mess we are in. But God uses it for His greater good. Have a blessed day!

    Jesus is the Gift that keeps on giving. How great is His goodness? Beyond what we can imagine. When this life overwhelms us, we can take refuge in His character and His promises. We can persevere and endure and enjoy and rejoice – through it all and in it all-because He gave us the gift of Himself. God with us. Jesus. God in us. Holy Spirit. From “In the beginning” to “Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!” it is well with my soul.

    1. Mari V says:

      Beautifully stated Churchmouse! And in agreement with you, “Come Lord Jesus!

    Thank you, Bessie! I too found new among the old in Genesis – lots of nuggets tucked in and around the stories from Sunday School.

    This was a wonderful study. I love the book of Genesis and found new insights and wisdom in reading it with all of you. I think my favorite day was Day. 31 Return to Egypt. When Erin talked about the silver cup and the geodes, I was touched. What a wonderful way to think about trials as silver cups. My daughter and I will remind each other to ‘count it all joy when we face various trials’, but having the visual of a silver cup is precious. I also loved the thought of the ugly outside of a geode hiding the gems that are inside.
    Speaking for myself, I do not have a glamorous outside. I’m not rich, famous or beautiful. Heads don’t turn when I walk down the street. I’m pretty ordinary. But God, as you my friends say, sees me as a beautiful treasure. I believe that all of you are beautiful treasures as well. Whatever the exterior, your hearts are beautiful treasures.
    We must all remember that and value ourselves. We are treasures made by God and God loves us. Jesus said to love our neighbors as ourselves. This is not in a vain, selfish way, but in the way that God loves us.
    Happy weekend to you, my beautiful sisters!

      I also loved that visual of the silver cup! I will remember that when I have trials. We never know what God has planned for His ways are not our ways!

    2. Mari V says:

      Bessie, this was so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your heart! I feel I’m an ordinary person myself.
      I am not glamorous, but that’s OK because to God we ARE glamorous and that’s all that really matters.
