Becoming A Vessel God Can Use - Book Review


When the daily grind is getting to me and the husband and kids seem to be taking up more and more of my time, I often lose site of the goal of furthering my spiritual life. There is nothing like a woman’s Bible Study group to get me back on track.

I just finished a study that I highly recommend. It can be done as an individual study but I think the group study is more beneficial. This Bible study is called “A 10-Week Journey to Becoming a Vessel God Can Use” by Donna Partow.

The book is very well organized. There are five requirements to becoming usable.
  • Accept the way God made you.
  • Be Emptied of self to make room for God.
  • Allow God to Cleanse you even if the process is painful.
  • Be Filled and constantly refilled with the Living Water of the Holy Spirit.
  • Pour Out your life in ministry as God directs.

These requirements are explored in 10 Weeks. Each week is broken down into five daily studies, each taking from 15 to 20 minutes to complete. This structure made it easy to stay focused on the goal, and faithfully finish the entire 10 weeks.

At the back of the book are 10 cards with memory verses. This was very helpful because everyone was memorizing the same verse each week. This gave us incentive to memorize but no one was embarrassed if they couldn’t remember the verse.

There are questions at the end of each daily study to stimulate thinking and discussion.

Also included are forms for prayer requests and a prayer log.

A Leaders guide is located at the back of the book and makes it easier for the group leader to guide discussions.

It was a tough 10 week journey. Each day’s study involved some personal and probing questions. They forced me to face problems that I had tucked away in a corner of my mind - labeled unimportant. Each day’s study gave me a lot to think about throughout the day. Ms. Partow’s friendly writing style made this 10 weeks a journey of love because it was clear that she had already been there and dealt with similar struggles. She showed the insight that comes from experience.
