{Rooted} “Restless” Study – Chapters 21, 22, & 23: Dreaming, Focusing, & Ending the Mundane

Tortoise and the Hare

Hello Rooted Ladies,

Here is the last set of questions. Can you believe we’ve read through the whole book?!? It’s been quite a journey.

This last set of questions was written by my co-leader, Karina Allen. Let’s jump right in.

Chapter 21: When Women Dream

This was such a great chapter! I love thinking about calling and the cost of that calling. I think something special happens when women recognize their callings & start fulfilling them. We are all so different and unique. And God wants us all to utilize our talents to further His Kingdom. There is enough room for all of our stories. It is a powerful thing when women dream.

1. What are your gifts & talents?

2. Describe a time when you have felt like your gifts where not enough.

Chapter 22: Focused and Steady

This chapter reminds me of the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare. It is not the swift who accomplish great things for God. It is the ones who persevere through the long haul.

“Don’t underestimate obedience over a long time.” Jennie Allen (page 203)

That’s the key. Take it one step at time. Seek God and obey Him. Don’t rush His timing.

1. Are you in a season of waiting?

2. If so, how are you preparing for what God wants to do?

3. What challenges do you find in ‘waiting seasons’?

Chapter 23: The End Of Mundane

“Your view of your life may be small, but nothing about your life is small.” Jennie Allen (page 206)

I don’t know about y’all but I can feel this way a lot! I need this reminder that God doesn’t see my life as small. In every moment, in every season, there is always a greater glory at stake. I want to learn to live with God’s perspective. He is Kingdom and others minded.

1. Do you view your life as small?

2. If so, what are some steps that you can take to change your perspective?

***

Wow, these chapters and this book has really caused me to go deep within myself and with Christ. I’ve really grown from this study and will honestly keep re-reading this book. Some of the questions will live with me long after I’ve closed the covers. I’m looking forward to your comments on this chapter. And I’d love to hear how this book has touched your life.

Blessings,

Hope
