for me. Today I started the first organized study of a book of the Bible. I am participating in the Good Morning Girls study of the book of Ephesians. In a way, I am embarrassed to admit that this is my first organized study. But one thing I have learned from other bloggers and the Relevant conference is to be truthful and transparent. So there you have it folks….I have NEVER participated in an organized Bible study group. EVER. In 51 years. Even though I grew up in church and went to every service – my dad WAS the pastor, after all. *smile*
I had the opportunity to meet Courtney at the Relevant conference last October – one of the organizers of Good Morning Girls. She was one of the most open, welcoming and engaging speakers of the conference. She is part of the reason I wanted to check this out.
Life is a series of choices and I am making this one. It will be a new and different experience for me. I am certain that I will be distracted at times, but I pray that I have the strength to persevere. This is just one choice in a lifetime of choices…
Lord, be with me as I walk this journey with the Good Morning Girls. May my eyes and ears be opened to you and your will. I pray that I will learn from you and the other women on this journey. Thank you for this opportunity.
What about you? What new and different choices are you embarking on this year?
What a powerful video. I have never been in a bible study either. You've probably inspired a lot of people today. Good luck!
The first step to making the choices is realizing that, whether we conscientiously make them or not, we are making them. Either way, they add up. I
It is living out of the default into the grace life that requires we choose what we ordinarily would not.
This is what I am learning and yes, they are small choices but when they add up to a lifetime, they are huge.
I have been a Bible study teacher for twenty years, start my classes tonight. Struggled with the decision to do it again this year but made the choice.
God bless you as you dig into Ephesians 🙂
This is great. So glad you have found a Bible study that you want to participate it. God will use it to open your eyes and heart to what his word has to say.
I love this video!!! thank you so much for sharing it. I will pass it on! I love your choice to start a study in Ephesians… I know you will be blessed 🙂 It is a "grand' start!
You go, girl! And thanks for daring to tell the truth. Sadly I think many sit in church pews pretending, not willing to say things out loud like, "I don't know how to pray. Quiet time? What's that? I've never been part of a Bible study. I don't even know where to begin." I hope your post gives someone else courage.
Great video. Good to see you back here.
How wonderful, Mary! I pray it will be a fruitful time. I'm sorry I have not been "around" much lately, but I know you understand. Looking forward to hearing about your journey through Ephesians!
Great video! Thanks, Mary!
