The Best Is Yet To Come

Tuesdays take on a whole new meaning whenever you have Small Group from church to look forward to. Tonight will be our second time with the group, and it'll also be our first time sharing our SOAP. If you're confused about what SOAP is, go here.
Dress - Old Navy (exact)
Jacket - JcPenney (similar)
Belt - Old Navy (exact)
Wedges - Guess (similar)
Necklace - Handmade (similar)
Wristlet - Ipsy makeup bag (here)

John 2 is the scripture that we were to review for our "homework" assignment. From reading a designated chapter, here's my SOAP for the week:

SCRIPTURE:
John 2: 10. "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best 'til now." This is a quote by the master of the banquet, referring to Jesus turning water into wine.

OBSERVATION:
Be confident that the best is yet to come.

APPLICATION:
No trial is forever - it's only temporary. For example, our struggles with pregnancy will not last forever. 

PRAYER:
Dear Lord, I pray that I can be reminded that you always know the desires of our heart and that I can be confident in knowing that the best is yet to come.

There's no right or wrong answer when completing a SOAP. And, what's even cooler is that anyone can do it as long as you have access to the good ole B-I-B-L-E or at least the Bible app on your iPhone, ha!.

  2. Best life lesson ever! So many people can relate to 'the best is yet to come', and it's a personal favorite of mine as well! It's so awesome that you're in a new small group and are really loving it. Good luck tonight!

  7. Great outfit and I feel the exact same way about Thursdays because that is when my home group meets! It always gets me through the day knowing I get to be with my friends that evening. My favorite thing about using the SOAP method with verses is that months later when I come across the verse again I can recall the meaning and importance it had to me because of the application.
