Whenever I use to see those words I would RUN! After a few years I saw those words and was like "yeah I totally need to do that" but I never did, then I saw the words and was going to do it but came up with reasons why it would never work out. Well this summer I saw the words embraced my fear and totally jumped in head first. I have no idea why women's bible studies always freak me out, it's not like women are crazy (no crazier then men) and it's not like I've had horrible experiences with women, I have had many great women friends. So today I went and I'll tell you what, I had an awesome time! I met some great new ladies and got to dig into the word with them and hear what they had to say about what God is doing in their lives.
Next week we're studying Psalm 13 so I sat down to read it today. It spoke volumes to my heart and I hope that you'll take some time to study it yourself. In this Psalm David (the author) was pleading to God in a time of struggles. He was asking God how long will I endure this?! The chapter is only 6 versus long so it went for woeful to praising God in a very short span. In the next couple versus he goes on to pray that the Lord would deliver him. In the last couple versus he's praising God for his blessings and for taking care of him! It reminded me that yes I go through hard times, but that I should always praise God for being good to me! Short post tonight, I'm tired and it's only 7pm but I think I shall retire early.
Blessings today and always,
