As I contemplated and prayed about topics for this week, this issue kept coming to mind. It’s not really a light-hearted topic but I just get the feeling that God wants us girls to be prepared as we wind down this bible study on spiritual warfare. So here goes.
I sure did miss having bible study this past Monday. It has really become a big part of my life. After this bible study we’ll have a link event and then won’t have the next study for four weeks. FOUR WEEKS. What will we do?
Sometimes I think we girls love our friendships so much we become dependent upon them. And Women’s Life Fellowship offers a unique fellowship that I’ve not experienced anywhere else. What we have a WLF is special, no doubt about it. I love it. I love my sisters in Christ. I get a spiritual high on Monday nights and if I am not careful, I can become dependent upon Monday nights and the beautiful fellowship I find there. I have to ask myself “From where does my help come from?” My church? Women’s Life Fellowship? My friends?
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
So ladies, I am asking you to begin preparing yourselves for the void you will feel when we experience the down time between bible studies. Let’s look to the Lord for our help. We need to make sure we are drawing our strength from Him. Not our Monday nights, or our Sunday mornings or our girl times. These are all important in our walk with the Lord but are not supposed to be substitutes for our relationship with Him. If they are, then we have missed the whole point of our bible studies and Women’s Life Fellowship.
I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me (Isaiah 45:5)
P.S. If anyone wants to get together during those four weeks, call me! I’m looking to my Lord for my strength but fellowship is good!
