Sunday, January 22
The Lord has truly blessed our Women's Ministry at Real Life Church! It has grown and, with the enormous efforts of Migi, who is the co-director with me (though she is the real visionary), we are growing by leaps and bounds! Our monthly brunches have been an amazing time of fellowship, and after the 40 Days of Purpose studies, it was again time to launch another season of studies. Due to the incredible growth, we decided that two studies would be best ... one at the church office (Migi and Becky would lead), and one at a coffee shop in a nearby town (I'd lead). So ... Wednesday, January 4th marked the beginning of a 10-week journey through Max Lucado's book "Traveling Light." The book explores Psalm 23 and helps readers become equipped to lay down their loads at Christ’s feet ... to stop trying to bear our burdens, and those of others. Through scriptural insights, the book is an amazing read and perfect for a Bible study.
After three weeks of meeting with the women (we've had an average of 12 at the Lincoln Perk each Wednesday evening!), I am amazed at the incredible fellowship that has taken place, as well as the awesome insights that the Lord has filled each woman with as we discuss what we've read, and study the scriptures together to gain insights into how to apply the word of God in order to break free from whatever burdens we carry. It has been amazing! This is not the first, or even second time I've read the book, but each time I do it gets better and better, with new insights and opportunities to grow. Thank you, Lord!
