Tuesday B-Stud!

Tuesday are great days for me because I get to go to a summer Bible study with some awesome ladies from my church. We’re doing Beth Moore’s Living Beyond Yourself:Exploring the Fruits of the Spirit!

A bit blurry, but this is during our Bible study discussion.

Beth Moore aka Beth because we like to pretend she is our best friend.

We all take turns bringing delish food (this week was lettuce wraps, artichoke dip, mixed greens salad with walnuts, tiramisu, and home made ice cream….yumx10000!), then we watch a DVD of Beth teaching, and then we discuss our weekly homework. It’s been a really cool time for me to be around women who are in the “next” phase of life- married with kids. This week we learned about faithfulness.

This week Beth talked about how “faith” is associated with “through.” The time we need faith is when we’re going through something- not trying to go around it.

Isaiah 43:1-3 says:

But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.

3 For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
Cush and Seba in your stead.”

We have to believe in what is not seen and trust the character of God when we’re going through trials. Candi always says that God cares more about our character than our comfort. Beth asks the question: “Do you base your faith of what God does or who He is?” I hope that is as challenging to you as it is to me. I’m learning that God is trustworthy and faithful even if I am not “comfortable.” I know that my transformation, healing, and refining will bring more glory to God- but only if I’ll have the faith to go through.
