The Power of the Word....

Okay, I have to tell you. I feel like a new women. There is nothing like a new Bible study with Beth Moore to get me pumped up. My little group just started A Women's Heart, God's Dwelling Place this past Tuesday night. I am about to burst with excitement.

Some of the things that really rocked me were...

Day One... I loved the connection between the thorns that came as part of the curse for our sin... and the thorns that pierced the brow of Christ. The curse for our sin fell onto the head of Another. (Beth's statement) The thorn that Paul had in his flesh stayed in his flesh because God wanted him to know the sufficiency of His Grace... The day that our Savior bore the thorns in His flesh was the day God perfected the ultimate sufficiency of His Grace. WOW! Does she have insight or what??

Day Two... In the perfect enviornment, Adam and Eve didn't make the right decision... and Noah, in a horribly wicked enviornment, where he was the only one that walked with God... made the right decision. What a challenge to me. No matter the situation that I find myself in... I can make the right choices when I am walking with the Lord.

I could go on and on. I am really pumped up. I cannot wait for Tuesday night. I am praying that the other ladies are getting a thrill from God's Word as well. I hope that I can refrain from giving you day to day updates in this study. I would hate to ruin it for any of you that want to do the study.

On another subject... remember my friend from this post, well her father has been in a motorcycle accident. He was flown from the scene to the closest trauma center in our area. Please say a little prayer for her and her family. She is still undergoing chemo... and their plates are full. BUT... God is always good.

His grace is sufficient for us, His power is made perfect in our weakness.
2 Cor. 12:9

Love me a new study! Enjoy each day's journey. Don't rush. Just absorb, and feel free to give us updates. I love revisiting a former study. Funny, I've perfected my forgetting, so updates are just what I need.

I'm so glad you're enjoying it so much already. I love how Beth is able to connect the dots so to speak so well from old to new testament to practical application and so on. I'll be praying for your group for continually fresh revelation and joy in His Word.

I so relate to your excitement of a new study! Wow...some great insights that you shared. (I'm with Elaine, I welcome your updates!) Thanks again for sharing the blessing!

I sent up a prayer on behalf of your friend and her Dad.

Blessings my friend,
