You know when you’re carrying a very full cup of coffee, and you have to really focus on keeping the cup level, and then the doorbell rings and your dog bounds through the room knocking the cup right out of your grasp? You had plans. You were in control. Until you weren’t. And you never really were. Mary Shannon Hoffpauir says this is a great way to look at what we say and what we do. Often, we think “God is in control” but we live like we are. It takes spilling a hot, burning mess to make us realize what little control we have and how dependent on God we truly are. This six-week Bible study on 1 Samuel for women of all ages includes a Participant Workbook, a Leader Guide, and a DVD with six 25-minute segments (with closed captioning).
