TA timeless classic that has influenced countless believers. Andrew Murray says, “Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret, and am at peace as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and above is trouble.”

The trials of life can feel overwhelming. Life seems broken-shattered into a million pieces, and we convince ourselves we are too far away or to “messy” for God’s grace to reach us where we are. This study will show how using spiritual disciplines such as confession, prayer, and meditation on Scripture can help us break free from the cycles of despair and experience a new-found joy as a child of God-fully known, fully loved and fully accepted!

Of the original 2 million Israelites who received God’s invitation to enter the Promise Land, only 2 actually entered it! Similarly, we often hear and understand the promises of God, but rarely choose to experience them in everyday life. Priscilla invites us to change that pattern for good, living beyond our circumstances and expecting to see God move in miraculous ways. Without a doubt, we can find and follow God’s purpose for our promised land!
