One of my favorites

It's no secret that I LOVE Bible study. It has changed my life. Truly. The pages are more than pages. If I pick up a page in the Bible, I now see so much beautiful depth to each page. These aren't just words to me on a page. They are life and truth. The pages are loaded with original meaning and context that we might miss if we don't study it. And....then, the word is completely different. And, then you are completely different. It's phenomenal to me. Well, it's actually life changing to me.

Several years ago I did "Believing God" by Beth Moore. Isn't that the root of it all?? If we don't truly believe Him and His Word, are we really believing Him?

This is the Five Statement Pledge of Faith that we learned during the study.....

1. God is who He says He is.

2. God can do what He says He can do.

3. I am who God says I am.

4. I can do all things through Christ.

5. God's Word is alive and active in me.

"I'm believing God."

I'm beleiving God today. Are you?

"You are my witness," declares the LORD, "and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Isaiah 43:10

Hugs and blessings~

I’m with you Fran, Believing God today and every single day for the rest of my days! I LOVED that bible study and it was life changing to my way of thinking and believing. Transformation from the Father! Every single time I’ve redone that study, I’ve always thought to myself, “These are foundational truths. If I’m not understanding and believing this about Him, what am I thinking???” Thank you for the reminder of His greatness today!

Been a long time since I did Believing God, but I know what you mean when you say "The pages are more than pages. If I pick up a page in the Bible, I now see so much beautiful depth to each page"......how bout those Chiastic structures and peripety???? We shouldnt be surprise that God is so clever and such a beautiful writer, but its neat to study,huh?

If trusting HIM and BELIEVING HIM has not been the message I've heard OVER and OVER again, I don't know what is.

"I'm believing God, sister!"

That was the first Bible Study I ever did and I haven't been the same since! I love, love, love Bible Study and wish I could just do it all day long :)

How wonderful to see that Scripture has changed your life! That's a terrific message to convey. ~Suzanne

Isn't that the one where, in the videos, she tells us to just walk away from the argument doing our sign language? And she holds her hand up like a crazy woman flipping her fingers up?
shoulder, head, sky
shoulder, head, sky

That visual sticks with me. And totally makes me laugh!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
