Coming to a Close
Sadly I only have one more monday night left in the "Experiencing God" bible study. This bible study and the women involved with it have been such a blessing. It has grown my understanding of who God is and what He has done for me so much. Being that I grew up in the church I thought I knew everything there is to know about Him but I was wrong. It has shown me that God is not just some foreign being I have to believe in for eternal life, He is real and personal, He is involved in every facit of my life. He created me and not just for the sake of creation but for a purpose. He is "I AM", everything I have ever needed and will ever need, I just have to fill in the blank and that is what He is. Praise God for being real and involved. I have to admit that even among all the joy of this revelation I am a bit sad and worried. I don't want this time to end, I don't want to lose momentum. Before this bible study I had never really dug deep into God's word on a daily basis. I tried but I had no direction or understanding. I would get discouraged because I would just flip open my bible and look at a passage and think "Ok, what does this mean? What do I do with it?" I don't want to get back to that place. So now I am praying about what to do next. Should I do another bible study on my own to hold me over until the summer bible study? Should I start reading a book of the bible and pray that this time God will help my understand and apply it? I have no clue but I want to do what God leads me to do. My original thought for this post was to see if anyone has a good bible study I should look at doing but I think I will just ask for your prayers instead. If He puts it on your heart to share a bible study or book of the bible that may be good for me, you know how to reach me :)! But please just keep me in your prayers in general, as daily I feel like I need an army praying for me in some way shape or form. Praise God for being the Good Shepherd who leads us, and comes back for us when we wander off the path!
