Our lady's Bible Study is coming to the end. Just 1 more week. We are doing Beth Moore's "Believing God" It's been an awesome time. We have such a great diverse group of women who are so much fun to be with. We come from all walks of life, at least 5 or 6 different churches are represented and we range in ages from 16 to 80 something. We have a couple retired school bus drivers, we have a former teacher's aid, we have a lady who used to help her husband lay brick, we have a retired Healthcare Assistant, a nurse who is working on her Masters, my daughter who is a high school junior feeling the call to full-time ministry, me.
This group is so much fun. They bring so many different facets to our Bible Study. We have all experienced so many different things serving the Lord and we are all in various stages of our Christian Walk. It just makes it so interesting when we meet. If one of the younger ones are talking about a particular problem they are going through, you can usually count on one of the older ladies having had a similar problem at some point in their life. Sometimes they can offer assistance or ideas on how to cope or sometimes they just offer a hug and "I've been there and I understand." which is so encouraging. You know God is so good to allow us to have friends to help us through this life.
Where I was originally heading with this post was something Beth Moore said in the video. She talked about clapping for God when He does something awesome. She says after she's been at service and has seen God move that on the way home when she stops at a traffic light she'll just start clapping and praising God. Then she said if we aplaud God, He may be more likely to do an encore. I thought that was such was such a neat idea. So, I think I'll start thanking God more and praising Him for all he's done and clapping.
So thank You, God. I praise you for my Bible Study friends and my new blogging friends. You are so good to me.
