Just before Christmas, I mentioned to my dear friends, Marti and Vicky, that Beth Moore had a new study out. The book of James seemed intriguing and the two girls happened to be in the book store to glance through the materials. Marti's consistent persistence brought me to a point that was inevitable, we were going to start a new study. The question was simply "when?" and "where?".
Looking back now, I suppose God already had a plan. We were fortunate enough to find it...not because I spent time in prayer asking Him to reveal His plan, but because He was gracious to lead us in the right direction. My daughter, Lauren, was interested in the study, too. It is difficult for her to attend with a three year old, it is a wonderful solution to have the study in her home. This way, the baby is bathed and in jammies when we get there and the study is over just before her bedtime. As participants, we can show up in sweats or pj's. Isn't God good!
We are only two weeks into this wonderful study. Each week, we are totally surprised at what mysteries are revealed to us as a group and as individuals. I am thrilled and grateful to have this opportunity laid out for us. The group consists of whomever shows up...the members are a small close knit group of women from ages in their 20's to their late 60's. WOW, What a wonderful group!
