I've got the joy, joy, joy.......

Gee... its been a long time since I have posted. I'm not quite sure what I have been doing... but the computer has obviously not been a part of it. I am sure that my family wouldn't believe that.

My Tuesdays and I started a new Bible study on January 6th. We are doing Jesus The One and Only. (Of course it is Beth Moore.) Today I started on Week Two... and I nearly had a fit when she led us to this scripture.... that is... a Holy, Hallelujah fit. It was soooooo good.

One question was,

Why was Christ not sent for the nation of Israel alone??

She sent us to Isaiah 49:6... this just thrilled my soul.....

"He says, It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth."

Okay.... did you catch that????? It was TOO SMALL A JOB for Him to come only for the nation of Israel. Now, that just sent me into a Holy Fit!!! I just squealed. I could picture all of those old beat up pick-up trucks that drive around our town with signs that boast of their services... saying.... Handy Man... no job too small! Please tell me that you love that.... it is not just me is it??? Well.... maybe it is just me... me and the Father. We had a great time with it!!!!! Beth's next statement was....

"It would have been too small a thing for so great a Savior!"

I also love it when Old Testament "stuff" is shown in the New Testament in Jesus. And my study was full of that too. It was a great day in the Word.

Also... I just want to share something else that God has done for me. If you have read my blog ever... you know about our financial struggles. And... no, we didn't win the lottery or even gain anymore income. BUT.... I have gained a much closer walk with God... and if that is not enough.... He is now laying ME on the hearts of His other children in order to bless me. I received the sweetest email the other day from another blogger explaining that God had put me on her heart and she is sending me a set of CD's by Beth Moore and two other teachers. I was absolutely thrilled..... God is the only one that knew that I needed that exact thing that she is sending me. I also received a gift card from my Mother-in-Law for Christmas.... and I have been trying to decide between a couple different sets of CD's and DVD's from the Living Proof website... soI decided to ask her for advise.... and she told me that she has those too... and will send those as well. Well.... that just blesses my socks off. God is so good. Ya'll... He brings me to my knees in praise.

I spent my of my ride to work tonight thinking about His goodness. I just kept saying to myself... ummm... ummmm...uummmm. Praise you Father!!!

Praise God, Lynn. And thanks for the recap too. What a great verse in Isaiah! I don't think I've ever read that. I do love me a Beth Moore video day! Hope you a wonderful weekend to boot.

Its good to hear from you again. I was wondering if you had fell off the earth...

Anyways...that sounds like a wonderful study group. I definitely need to start a small study group of my own. I do so much better at digging into the word when I am looking for something in particular. Is your study group online...or actually local face to face friends??

He is good and the more we walk in this faith the more He proves His goodness. Having expereinced His work so much in this past year, I have been able to experience the hard times differently-with that anticipation for what he will do next! Beth Moore has the best studies. They have carried me through so so much.

Have a great week!!

Lynn....
I am so excited!! I am starting a small womens study group online. My idea is that we can all talk using a program online. As working moms its hard to find the time to get ready, find a babysitter, travel to someones house, or clean your house because others are coming. SO I thought....cut all that out and get down to business of getting closer with God!!!

Is there a study you could suggest we start with?

Your cup is running over my friend...it has splashed onto me and gave me that extra boost for the day...God is soooo Goood!!! I just can not understand the extent of his mercy and his doings at times...I am so glad that you have shared your praises for him. God Bless you-keep strong

Thanks for the re-visit to Jesus the One and Only. It's the first study I did with my ladies here; so powerful to begin with Him, is it not? Glad to hear about your recent gifts. I know they will be a blessing to you in the days and years to come! Have a great week.

peace~elaien

Lynn,

I am smiling right now...

Do you see me?

I felt your praises all the way through cyberspace. Your joy is contagious. I'm so glad to read how He has blessed you lately.

I loved that particular Beth Moore study. Can't get enough of the One and Only.

This post is very good! You are a thoughtful one aren't you. I really like how you turned it around and what you say here is so true. We often forget that we are the obstacles that stand in the way of what the Lord wants to do in and through us. Our comforts sometimes get in the way of what he wants, we keep ourselves safely hidden within the confines of our own perceptions.
Thanks for stopping by my blog:)
