It’s time to start Week 2 of our Wait and See Bible study! I’m Trish Cordell, one of your #WaitAndSee Study Leaders, and I’m pumped up to start working out with you.
I know what you are thinking. Did she just say “working out”?
I did! But, don’t drop the weights just yet. Let’s begin our warm-up by seeing what our author, Wendy Pope, and this week’s study leaders have to say about this “working out” thing.
Note: All of our YouTube OBS videos are closed captioned for the deaf/hard-of-hearing.

Whew! Aren’t you relieved you didn’t have to drop and give us 20?!
We all know physical workouts are great for our bodies. But it’s that spiritual workout, the one-on-one time with our “spiritual trainer,” God Himself, that gets into all the nooks and crannies of our soul as we allow Him to get truly personal with us.
Wendy states this beautifully in Chapter 2 when she writes:
“There is wisdom in taking steps of action, and there is wisdom in waiting on God to tell you where to walk.”
It’s essential (before we take those steps of action) to first let God show us where He wants to take us.
Now that you’re just as pumped up as I am for this week, let’s take a peek in our Weekly Lowdown at what you can expect. As with any workout, you choose what options work best for you. The best part: EVERYTHING you need is already prepared for you! Absolutely no guesswork!
Alright friend, let’s get this Week 2 workout started!
Reflect and Respond:
Observe — Spiritual workouts don’t have to be difficult. We can spend time getting personal with God anywhere! What are some of your favorite places to meet with Him?
Bible — Write down our VOW, 1 Samuel 16:7 adding your reflections on a few of the benefits we can receive when we, like Jesus, look past outward appearances and truly look at the heart.
Stretch — In the video message above, Wendy shares we should “love God and love His people, while we’re in those pauses.” Focusing on our pause can hinder us from truly loving the people God has placed around us. Let’s get intentional and watch for opportunities this week where we can love others, as we wait for Him to work things out!
