Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
What kind of beauty does God honor? It doesn't have to do with being a size six. Of course, you might know that in your head already. But how can the truth sink into your heart? "Live Beautifully "explores the stories of Ruth and Esther, two women who lived out true beauty. Ruth was a foreigner who made a scandalous choice that brought God's favor. Esther was a Jewish orphan in a foreign land whose risky decision saved an entire nation. God saw beauty in Ruth's and Esther's lives--just as he sees radiant beauty in you. Come embrace that truth through the lessons in "Live Beautifully. "Each twenty-minute lessonis structured in five parts: Lift up (prayer), Look at (God's Word), Learn about (new insights), Live out (application), Listen to (quotes from other believers). The Fresh Life series was created by women, for women--women who crave a profound experience of God's Word without an overwhelming commitment of time. With each lesson, you will come to a deeper understanding of the truths of the Bible and develop a deeper intimacy with God.
