Our Ladies' Bible Study has just begun the Beth Moore study on the book of Esther. Although I was wanting to do the study as soon as it came out... I knew that there was a reason that we would have to wait a few extra months... you know I'm not a girl who believes in coincidences, right?
Just a few thoughts on Week 1, Day 1.
Top of page 12, Beth says, "God will write something new and unexpected of our own into His [story]." Okay, so I'm used to the "new" with God... but the "unexpected"... well, I'll just have to keep my eyes open!
Page 13, Beth reminds us of Romans 15:4 which she also discusses in the video segment.
"For everythingWhat a powerful verse! Scriptures encourage us to have hope!
that was written in the past
was written to teach us,
so that through endurance and
the encouragement of the Scriptures
we might have hope."
And then the "personal question"... what are you hoping for? And I thought... I'm hoping to act wisely in regards to a certain situation. But not only acting wisely now... but learning something from the situation, so that I don't go through my roller coaster of emotions, again... and so that I can help others who are going through something similar. And that is going to take "endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures"!
So, what about you? What are you hoping for?
