In His Service

Last evening, I started a new Bible study at our church.  I started this Bible study as a new leader for the small groups at the Bible study.  Oh, my.  I am SO humbled, so privleged, that the Lord has called me into this ministry and service.  I was in very intense prayer for the past few days about this and asking the Lord to direct my paths and my mouth.  I just want everything to be about the Lord and not about me. 

It went very well.  My group of ladies is so sweet and we all laughed and had a wonderful time.  We are doing the Beth Moore study, "Beloved Disciple" about the ministry of the disciple, John.  We watched the introduction video last night and, of course, being that it was Beth Moore, it was wonderful.  She always, always is very thought provoking and directs all our thoughts to the Lord, Jesus.  I just know we are all going to grow so much through this study. 

I'm telling you, I woke up today SO EXHAUSTED!! I didn't even want to get up out of bed and if I hadn't been in so much pain, I wouldn't have.  I drug around here all day long just feeling like I'd been beat.  I think I was so preparing myself for this study and wanting to do the right thing, I just came shooting back down, exhausted.  I'm finally feeling better tonight and I'm sure by tomorrow, I'll be fine. 

Speaking of tomorrow, my hubby and I are going to do something we never seem to get to do anymore.  We are actually going to spend some time ALONE!  Yes, you heard right.  Alone - just the two of us.  We are going to get away on an over-night trip.  I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this.  I have to come back for my volunteer work on Friday afternoon, but knowing we'll have a whole day and morning together is just wonderful.  Plus, it was HIS idea!  Is there anything better than that?  I think not!!

God bless you - Julie

  2. Isn't Beth Moore just absolutely wonderful! We just started our Fall Bible Study too, this past Monday. We are doing one of her new ones, "Here and Now, There and Then." It is on revelation. I get so excited just thinking about it. God bless you!
