18 Aug W@W Begins September 16th!
As a precious friend of mine often texts me, “Have I told you lately that I love you?” Oh, beloved sistas at THE WELL I do love you and have missed you tons!! I’m grateful that summer is nearly over (in more ways than one) and Bible study is about to start back up! And it is with tremendous joy and a humble heart of gratitude to the Lord that I invite you to another year of WOMEN AT THE WELL Bible Study and the great adventure of knowing God through the study of His marvelous Word!
There is absolutely nothing like God’s Word! Period! No book on earth can hold a candle to the Bible! Combine all the wise words recorded in books written by man and not one of them can be compared with or surpass the greatness, the timeless wisdom and the perfect counsel of the Only Wise King! No, there has never been anything like the Bible – not ever, and there never will be! It contains God’s personal revelation to us of who He is, who we are… and how we are to live. There is no end to the treasures waiting us in the pages of Scripture and I can hardly wait to begin again with you this year and uncover more!
I’m both honored and thrilled to serve you this year as we journey through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians – the book that tells us “how to effectively live life”. I’ll be teaching from a somewhat different perspective that will challenge us to dig even deeper into the Word of God and examine our lives, our thoughts and beliefs with the intent to “make the most of now”. Consider with me the following Scripture from Paul’s letter:
“Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.” Ephesians 5:15-17 NIV
Beloved, there is never a better time to know God better than NOW; there is never a better time to start living wisely than NOW; there is never a better time to make the most of your moment, your time, your day, and the season you are presently in than NOW!
My challenge to each of us (I always want to include myself in the fun, too) is this:
For the next several months would you be willing to put aside everything you have believed a woman ought to be and allow God to reshape your thoughts and ideas, develop a new attitude in you, present you with a new purpose, show you how to live effectively in the middle of your now, and help you become every bit the woman-of-God He created you to be?
I know I’m asking an awful lot here, but I believe the Lord has so very much to give us if we will allow Him total access to our lives! So… I’m in! How ’bout you? I believe you’ll be so encouraged to find out that you’re already on the right track by just making a decision to commit to in-depth Bible study this year!
So pat yourself on the back, sista, grab your Bible and notebook, bring along a friend and let’s get ready to make the most of our now!
I’ll meet you at The Well on Wednesday, September 16th!
Serving Him and serving you with love ~
