The Journey Through Psalms

The journey has begun...and I am so-o-o- excited!! Last night was the first night of our Ladies Bible Study over the Psalms of Ascent, using Beth Moore's newest study, "Stepping Up." I came expectant and my God did not disappoint.

One thing Beth said that really stuck was, "your circumstances will feel a whole lot better when you and I get it through our heads that we are just passing through." That excites me! I'm just a pilgrim passing through this way...the troubles I have today will be gone tomorrow. This is just my journey to the throne of God. Wow! Isn't it awesome to know that this "ain't" all there is? That God has so much more in store for us? I don't know about you, but I can't help but be excited by the fact that my Saviour is just paving the way for a better day for me! Amen and Amen!

She challenged us to get "face down" before God (literally) each day during this study. I have to admit, this is an uncomfortable area...makes me feel vulnerable...but I'm committed to being obedient and look forward to what God is going to teach me through this time.

Finally, the verse that lept off the page at me last night and again this morning, is Joshua 5:14 "speak Lord, you're servant is listening." That is my prayer and my heart cry.

I LOVE that comment about "just passing through" your circumstances! What a great way to look at things! (I'm totally gonna have to steal that line now, lol)

I really need to find a good ladies bible study around here. It's so nice to get out and chat and learn with other women you can relate to.

Glad to hear you're enjoying it!

Sounds like a great study. I wish I were in a women's study right now but there seems to be no time. Thanks for sharing.
