I'm in this new study.
Oh goodness...i'm in this new study. This study is having it's way with me...actually I guess thats God having HIS way with me.
I'm in this group called..........i'm embarrased to say, called The Bible Babes. Don't get me wrong..i'm not embarrased of the group. I'm blessed to know each and everyone of them. But that name has always made me squirm...and still does.
We are working thru this new book by Angela Thomas called WHEN WALLFLOWERS DANCE. I'm starting to get this whole growing up thing...i repeat just STARTING! I'm so blessed to have a gracious Father who is taking my hand and leading me...and occassionally yanking on my hand when i get side tracked playing in the dirt. (and i get side tracked often)
Angela has what she calls "girlfriend nudges" in the lessons...let me share with you one from this week .
(from WHEN WALLFLOWERS DANCE)
Not one of us will ever wake up one morning to find that overnight we became a godly woman. You will have to decide that you want to become an amazing woman like that. Today, what if you say, " I have decided"?
I'm even having a tough time typing this next sentence. But Lord...I'd like to be an amazing godly woman. It seems like such a unlikley, unreachable thing for me to aspire to and yet I know that has always been HIS plan for me. Thank you for your grace and thank you for surrounding me with The Bible Babes. Women who encourage me, stretch me..who help me to "get over myself" (as the queen says) and who love me not only for who i am but who, with His help, I'm going to BE!
I am Blessed :)
