I've also been thinking that it might be nice to share some of the books and studies that have encouraged me through hard times in the past.
The book at top, What Do I Know About My God? would be one of my best recommendations for a study that will help you through any crisis that you face. All you need for this one is Mardi's book, and a notebook of some sort. The book is a great and encouraging read in itself, but if you take your Bible in hand and work at copying out the verses in the various categories, you will end up with an entire notebook of truth about our God. This will become a resource that you will turn to again and again in times of need. I've linked to the book in the Wilds bookstore, but you can also find it on Amazon or even Thriftbooks,if you don't mind a used copy. I've bought many of these on Thriftbooks to share with others.
Now, I have a bunch of studies by Elizabeth George that have helped me tremendously. (For any of these, I strongly encourage you to also get the growth and study guide if it is not included in the book. You have more time than you did, so why not use it to get into a Bible study of eternal value?) The first one is below. I've been through this study at least twice and read the book more often than that. I can't recommend this one highly enough. If you are going through a trial, you need this study.
Finding God’s Path Through Your Trials
Loving God with All Your Mind is the very first Elizabeth George book I read. It changed my life, and it can absolutely change yours as well. I've lost track of how many friends I've shared this with but several of them have told me it transformed their lives. I've worked through the study twice on my own and once with my Sunday School class.
Following God with All Your Heart is a great study that begins with wonderful lessons from the life of Joshua.
Breaking the Worry Habit Forever. I found this one very practical and helpful.
Experiencing God’s Peace. I believe this is billed as a 15-minute a day Bible study, but it can't really be done quite that quickly, in my experience. This is a wonderful Bible study and very encouraging!
Also -- and I mention this only if anyone might be interested -- I have taught all of these last five studies in my ladies' Sunday School class and I think I could supply my teaching notes for most of them if wanted. Just let me know your email in a comment if you are interested in my notes, and I will see what I can do to help.
Have a blessed Sunday, all! Remember that God is in control and working all things after the counsel of His own will. He is also the God of all comfort, so don't hesitate to take your worries and fears to Him!
