I've just started a Bible study with a group of ladies on facebook. We are following the set up from Good Morning Girls. This is my fourth time leading a Bible study with this group and I am loving it!
There is accountability and encouragement when you try to do something like this with a network.
I am currently working on (yes, it is WORK) getting in shape and shedding some pounds. I have tried to do this many times, only to get discouraged and give up. However, this time around, I am not alone. My sweet husband is doing it with me! We are really pushing and encouraging each other and it seems when one of us has a weakness, the other is strong and helps to get us through.
This is what I am hoping for in this Bible study. Those that are in the group are there because they have a desire to get into the Word of God. They want to know more.
But let's fact it. It's not always easy.
In a perfect world, we would rise from our beds, pour our coffee and get right into our devotions and let it carry us through the day. Guess what??? This world is not perfect and we have crazy, busy schedules. We have jobs outside the home, we have children and a husband to care for or other responsibilities and sometimes just taking time to sit and relax in the Word feels like an impossible feat!
However, you and I both know that we need it more than anything. So, make time. Somehow, find a few minutes to check into God's Word and search for that nugget of truth. Ask Him to guide you.
This week we are learning about faith, hope, love, truth and GRACE... Grace, Grace, God's Grace!!!
It's not too late to join us. Just find me on facebook and shoot me a message and I would be glad to add you to our friendly group of ladies. You will be glad you did!
