E(eek)cclesiastes

Finding Meaning in a Meaningless Life

Do you sometimes think, "What's the point?" Do you become frustrated when you struggle to do the right thing while those around you, who are doing wrong, continue to succeed? Are you showing signs of aging and dreading the passing of the years? Have you ever questioned the meaning of life?

Well, you and Solomon (the author of Ecclesiastes) have something in common. Even though Solomon was one of the wealthiest, amazingly blessed, powerful leaders of his time he appears bitter and frustrated about how unfair life is and about his fleeting youth. He becomes sadly nostalgic regarding the life he might have missed out on and feels as though he is simply chasing after the wind through a life that is meaningless.

However, as you will discover, Solomon's dark observations on life will actually lead us to an understanding of what this life is all about and what is ultimately important.

Do you want to find meaning in life? This is the study for you!

“In Joyce's studies, she shows the reader how the books of the Old and New Testament are related, giving us a clearer understanding of what we read. By this we begin to see how it all relates to one work, the work of God through the Holy Spirit, the Holy Bible.”

What Do You Really Want?

When you pray, do you know what you're really asking for? Do you feel you need a more effective prayer life? Then this is the study for you. 

What do you want? No, what do you really, really want? From     God, that is! If prayer is the answer, then what the heck is the question… the real question? Figuring out what you really, really want (and what God wants from you) is the essence of this study. Inside, we are going to look at seven different prayers, from the “Uncertain Prayer” to the “Perfect Prayer,” and everything in between. These prayers are taken from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. In other words, they are stories about people who took their prayers directly to Jesus Christ while He was still here on earth. However, often what these people thought they wanted and what they really wanted, deep inside, were two different things. Understanding what these seven people were really asking/praying for, and coming to terms with what Christ was asking of them, will help you not only have a better prayer life and a closer relationship with God, but will also help you determine what you really, really want!
