This is the inviting time of year! Digging Deep officially begins its 12th year in just 27 days. This year’s reveal of the new topic happens at Polishing the Pulpit on Saturday, August 20th. If you are not attending PTP, you can watch the event at 3 p.m. on the 20th on the Digging Deep in God’s Word facebook page.
So take the time to send a facebook message or a text to a friend who needs the Word. (That’s any one of your friends!) Refer her to the introductory video that’s right here: https://thecolleyhouse.org/digging-deep-introduction-video?fbclid=IwAR1YnhHospghdKRzNCXe7iHkE2y4pE5-FVxrVaRF7AotZCHQMrx0c6BZifc. Better yet, post your invitation to MANY friends. You never know what good my come from a single post.
If you’re an old pro at DD, I hope you can watch the Facebook page to try and help the rookies with questions they may have as they navigate the study for the first time. Help them know what has worked best for your group as far as meeting frequency or dividing the study up. Make sure they know that a local study is not even necessary. Most of all, assure them that the study is not overly demanding or difficult to complete—and that it’s ok if you don’t complete every single part. Every question answered from the Word is worth the time investment. It’s always my prayer that our final return on the invested time is realized in heaven.
Sometimes we have digger sightings at various events around the country. I recently randomly saw a woman wearing a Digging Deep shirt in a Walmart parking lot in a town through which I was traveling. That’s a pretty fun way to make a new friend.
The most glorious digger sighting will be in heaven! I hope it’s a place where we can sit down and remember digging together!! I see no reason to doubt that this can happen. We can ask all the questions we failed to fully answer here. Several diggers now have passed to the timeless side of eternity while studying through a topic with us. It will be a glad reunion.
If you are attending PTP and you completed every month’s study in The Hour Has Come, and watched all of the monthly podcasts OR listened to the dig-a-bits, you will be honored in a small way on Saturday the 20th. But the real honor, of course, always goes to God. Each of our lives cannot but bring Him more glory when we learn and apply the Scriptures. I’m continually amazed at how He has worked through DD, a concept I could have never come up with on my own. It was no direct communication from Him, but rather through open doors of Providence, He allowed us to develop this network of women, who have connected through amazing digs into the deep blessings of His Word. I sometimes shake my head in disbelief. But then I remember WHO it is that we serve.
I hope you can invite some friend to help herself to happiness by getting into life’s instruction manual with us. There are some who have found their way to the throne through this study. He can do great things!
