Renewed Spirit

Tonight was my first class of the new Summer Bible Study that I'm doing.  It was so wonderful to sit in a room FULL of women wanting to hear God's word.  It was so wonderful to sit at a table with some of the most awesome women that I know.  Godly women who are so strong in their faith.  Women that I have learned from over the years.  It did my heart some good to have this time tonight.

I'm not sure if any of you have ever done a Beth Moore Bible Study ... if you haven't I encourage you to try to find one in your area.  They are so awesome.  She can make you laugh so hard and then have that laughter turn to tears, all in the same sentence.  She is ... so cool.  Last summer I did my very first Beth Moore Study on Esther.  Wow.  It was great.  This summer we are diving into, "A Woman's Heart:  God's Dwelling Place."  This is the updated version (the original was done over 10 years ago).  It was only night one and I'm hooked already.

As Beth drilled home tonight (via video) ... God pursues us!  That is so amazing isn't it?  It continues to wow me when God meets us when and where we need Him.  With all I have going on with life in general right now (the foot deal, my very stressful job, etc), I really needed these two hours tonight to SIT QUIETLY, BE STILL, and LISTEN to God's word.  To really hear Him.  This was one of the first time in months that I have been able to shut my mind off from the "outside world."  It was a welcomed relief.  Whew.

I had planned on working from home tonight; however, after tonight's lesson, I have decided not to work.  I have just come home, slipped into my PJs and am working on my blog (as you can tell).  When I finish up here, the computer will be closed up for the night and I'll be doing some knitting.  I finally picked my knitting up last night and started back ... I have got to finish this entrelac scarf so that I can move on to other projects.

With a renewed spirit, I'm logging off for tonight.

  1. Very uplifting post! I love Beth Moore. Our SS class has a 6 week study by her last summer and it was great. She is a very inspiring lady. Thanks for sharing!
