Remodeling Hearts Headed for Foreclosure

I often wonder….what if my desire to listen to God equaled His longing to speak personally with me? Listening prayer for me is simply being still in God’s presence, anticipating His voice, recording His words, impressions, or pictures, and then responding in love, faith and obedience to what He whispers. It’s absolutely amazing — I always receive exactly what my heart is longing for — sweet companionship, fresh encouragement and specific guidance. I’m praying that this excerpt from my “Listening Journal” will encourage you to begin a practice of listening to God. –Debbie

Redecorate ... Remodel ... Repurpose?

I am the same yesterday, today and forever. So don’t be attracted by strange new ideas.” Hebrews 13:8-9


God says, I never change.  I am current for all seasons.

BUT, you are constantly being renewed, transformed and changed as you abide in Me and my Words abide in you!  I am conforming you to the unchanging image of My Son. The world around you is changing constantly, spiraling further and further away from Me resulting in increased isolation, boredom and hedonism. Like an unkempt, broken down, condemned house headed for foreclosure, individuals, families and communities are being left with gaping holes of emptiness, aimlessness and despair.

  • Isolation =  Self-centered = Emptiness

  • Boredom = No purpose outside of self = Aimlessness

  • Hedonism = Spend all on self = Despair


What does NBS2GO offer?

  • A cure for isolation = Community, providing opportunities for authentic relationships centered around the unchanging Gospel and Word of God, which fill the gaping holes of emptiness!

  • A remedy for boredom = Loving One Another, where praying and caring for each other’s needs within the group fills the gaping holes of aimlessness!

  • A healing for hedonism = Sowing seeds of the Gospel, God’s unchanging Word and tangible love to the entire neighborhood, affecting the generations to come which fills the gaping holes of despair!


My written Word (Bible) ... My Living Word (Jesus), and ... My Whispered Word (Holy Spirit) ... are timeless, eternal and the same – they never need to be redecorated, remodeled or repurposed.

“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God lasts forever! Isaiah 40:8


What is God teaching you about His ability to turn neighborhoods "headed for foreclosure" into thriving, purposeful communities?

What is NBS2GO?

NBS2GO = Neighbor Bible Studies 2GO - nbs2go.com is simply the packaging of ideas, resources, and inspiration to equip believers to launch and multiply Bible study groups.


What's the big deal about a Bible study group?

Like a one-room schoolhouse, a Bible study group brings together a wide range of seekers and Christ-followers to study, discuss, and encourage one another toward life application of God’s Word. This blending of spiritual maturity levels creates a dynamic, life-transforming community. Friendships are formed, and group members are equipped to minister to others where they do life. Life transformation and multiplication!
