I am so thankful for my Bible study group.  We came together this year to form one instead of several small groups – the “experienced” ladies, the moms, the singles and the eclectics to jumped from one group to the next. And we’re learning together and supporting each other. It has been an amazing experience to watch the women of our church bond and become a collective unit. I can see how God is forming His women in this Church to become a mighty army for Him.

Last night was especially touching, as one of the most “quietest” members began to share right from her heart about her struggles – and woman after woman stood up to encourage her and just cover her in love. I just stepped back (I’m leading the group right now) and just got out of Jesus’ way and let Him do His work. My co-leader was fretting before class that she wasn’t quite prepared – and afterwards we joked that God didn’t want us teaching that day anyway!

PS. In case you’re curious, we’re doing Priscilla Shirer’s study, Gideon: Your weakness. God’s strength.It’s A-W-E-S-O-M-E.
