Aaaand we’re back! I’m still trying to figure out how to best do this whole audio file editing and importing thing… please forgive me for the simplicity of the recordings.
Session 3 is based on the life and possible packages of Rahab. Here’s the link to the Bible Study posts this message is based on: http://www.undividedwomen.com/unopened/day-7-a-harlots-house
Unfortunately I didn’t get to teach it as originally scheduled. My husband and I, with some dear friends, took a fabulous winter weekend up to NYC in January. Knowing I’d be teaching, we made specific plans to come back Tuesday evening so I’d have all day Wednesday to relax, unpack and prepare to teach that night. But, that is not what ended up happened – much to our utter shock and horror – when we got all the way to our car lot in Atlanta (about 4 hours from our house) WE DID NOT HAVE OUR KEYS. Yiiiiiiiikes y’all.
So we rented a car, arrived home around midnight, then got up with the spare keys, left at 5AM to drive back to ATL – pick up car and come back. Needless to say, I was in no spiritual state to teach that evening. #justsaying
In the session we made happen a week later, you’ll hear me mention the trip, the key scenario – and a certain level of discomfort.
Thanks for tuning in!
Here are the guided notes from the session as well! Hope you enjoy.

12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he qremove our transgressions from us.
13 As ra father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion pto those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;1
he sremembers that we are dust.

he flourishes like ua flower of the field;
and xits place knows it no more.

and bremember to do his commandments.
19 The Lord has cestablished his throne in the heavens,
and his dkingdom rules over all.
