It’s such a privilege to study God’s word in community with other women. I must confess, it had been nearly two years since I’d participated in a group Bible study, and I was even a little slow to sign up for the one this fall. I told myself I was busy. I told myself I didn’t need an official Bible study to study God’s word. I told myself I could do other things on Tuesday mornings.
But God kept nudging me to commit. He wouldn’t let me believe the lies I was trying to convince myself of. He wouldn’t let me try to go at it alone. He knew my tendency to put His word aside when I get busy. He knew my need to study His word within community. He knew my heart and soul needed this nourishment both from Scripture and from these beautiful women who show up week after week to pour over the word of God and grow together in Him.
I’m so thankful for His tender mercy in drawing me to Himself and into deeper community with His people. We were made to do this thing together! And God is so faithful even to those of us who are a little stubborn!
