Every Tuesday evening a group of us girls meet together for a Bible Study that we call, Everything Beautiful. We share our lives, hearts and most of all grow closer to the Lord together. This time has become very special to me, I have made so many wonderful friends and just love seeing God at work in our lives.
I think all of us girls would agree, that their is nothing like getting together with our girlfriends, shopping, dining, laughing, crafting etc. just doing what us girls do. But one thing that I like even more is, having a group of women that we can do all that, but we have a mission together. We realize that together we are more powerful than apart. That we are all different for a unique purpose and when we join hands we can truly change our families, our churches, our city and the world. We can reach out and bring hope, healing, laughter and joy to where it has been desperately lacking.
Last night we discussed what we are all about as a group & individuals and basically it's very simple... Love God with our whole heart. Love People. Love Life.
Luke 10:27 (NASB)
And he answered, "YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
John 10:10 (NLT)
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
God has a rich & satisfying life for you. You might feel like you are so far from it, but I would like to encourage you that as you love God with all that you are and begin to love people you will truly begin to discover and walk in that amazing LIFE that He has planned for you. Whatever you have been allowing to hold your back, why you don't you find the courage today to let it go, move on, receive a fresh start, be assured by His promises to you.
God's Grace is Bigger, His Mercy is Newer:), His peace is available, His joy uncircumstantial, His Life uncomparable.
Lots of Love.
