In the Old Testament account of the life of Hannah, we read of a woman who found herself at the mercy of her own emotional turmoil. Barren and in competition with her husband’s other wife, a wife blessed with sons and daughters, Hannah found many reasons for despair. She was constantly aware of what she lacked and her thoughts were consumed not only with her desire but with the stigma accompanying her insufficiency. Hannah descended into frustration, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem; she found herself so ruled by these emotions that she could not even bring herself to eat! Just like Hannah, our emotions have the power to rule our actions, even to the point that we are unable to do what we know is best for our own wellbeing. In short, these negative emotions often become our master, enslaving us to act in accordance with fear, hopelessness, and unhealthy habits.
This study is aimed at helping women who frequently experience the same troublesome emotions as Hannah. Like Hannah, many women struggle with feelings that grip their heart, destroying hope, hindering the truth of God’s word, and engaging in disappointment. Emotions are a powerful source that influence and dictate our decisions. In this 6-week study, we will identify wrong thought patterns, emotional responses, and unholy habits that disturb our course and hinder us from walking in fulfillment. When Hannah focused on God, rather than herself, he removed her barrenness and blessed her as the mother of Samuel. During this bible study,we will identify wrong thought patterns, emotional responses, and unholy habits that disturb our course in life and hinder us from walking in true fulfillment. When Hannah focused on God, rather than herself, he removed her barrenness and blessed her as the mother of Samuel.
Hannah’s Gathering is purposed for God encounters to lead to transformation; it is a bible study as well as a spiritual lifestyle study to aid in eliminating the principalities of; shame, guilt, condemnation, regret, and ego. These principalities are targeted with studies, teaching, discussions, prayer, ministry times, and homework assignments. Every step and teaching in this group is founded on the word of God and wisdom gleaned from scriptures. This study will not only identify unhealthy patterns but will release the power to set us free from the emotions that dictate our actions. The outcome of this is a woman engaged and thriving in every area of life and operating out of her spiritual authority. By taking practical steps that allow us to walk in new empowered habits and emotional responses we embody the fullness and freedom of love, joy, and peace. What a far better master!
What happens in a Hannah Gathering meeting?
Hannah’s Gatherings are led by women who foster a life-giving environment of love and freedom, which take place in a small group setting of no more than 15 ladies. This size allows for each person to be known, participate and be involved. Your Hannah’s Gathering leader will take you through scriptures related to the life of Hannah while highlighting valuable insights that relate to our emotional lives. She will provide teaching on shame, guilt, condemnation, regret, and ego, along with interactive discussions to facilitate going to greater depths of understanding, and awareness. In addition to this, each week we will include times of prayer and sharing. The first five weeks addresses one of the principalities and in week 6 the group will be open to a time of review, testimony sharing, and celebration.
Week 1: Shame
Week 2: Guilt
Week 3: Condemnation
Week 4: Regret
Week 5: Ego
Week 6: Celebration
What type of commitment can I expect with my involvement to Hannah’s Gathering?
We believe you can see transformational results when you show up expecting God to encounter you in a new way with confidence that he will take your life into a richer relationship with Himself and others. Along with this study, you will receive daily homework that includes scripture reading and meditation. The purpose of this homework is to connect you to a deeper personal relationship with the Lord. In these studies, you will explore different characteristics of God that relate to your emotions. In doing so, you can expect to experience a greater sense of the reality of sustained rest. Even a busy schedule will accommodate this homework as it is given in a devotional format and can be completed throughout the day.
Your expectation to encounter the Lord along with your diligence in attending the meetings and wholeheartedly completing the homework with regularity will not only bring a new lifestyle but also give you an opportunity to experience relationships with new sisters.
Where does Hannah’s Gathering teaching come from?
Hannah’s Gathering is birthed out of the teaching of Radical Transformation (RT4). RT4 is based on releasing healing to 4 pillars, in which shape identity: behavioral, emotional, memories, and spirit (willpower). Each of these aspects plays an important role in the molding of a personality and either leads to a fulfilled life or to a meaningless life. It has proven to bring freedom to many; by freeing addictions, restoring vision, and breaking the lie of insignificance.
