I know I am supposed to have a table with links to everyone participating in the study, but I am so not good at this type stuff. I did try, but I can't seem to type with the table on there. Hopefully I will be able to work on this over the next 9 weeks! However, the links to fellow LBY bloggers should be to the left of my blog labeled "LBY Bloggers"--naturally.
After one week of study I can tell you one thing for sure. Satan does not want me (or anyone else I'm sure) to begin, continue or complete this study. I got a late start due to some computer issues which my husband wasn't able to help me with until Monday night. So my first day of homework was Tuesday. Every day since then has been total chaos and I haven't been able to carve a niche of time where someone or something wasn't interrupting or distracting me. I was doing the homework and really trying to listen to the Holy Spirit, but Satan is good at what he does--bring disorder and confusion.
Ladies, I tell you know he will not keep me from my appointed hour with God! It's amazing how the Holy Spirit can get through to you even when you're not sure you're really even paying attention. I just wanted to comment on what I really felt convicted by this week-- how powerful our sphere of influence as women is. And more importantly, how large it is. Beyond our spouse, kids and other family is every person we come into contact with on a daily basis.
I love God so much and it pains my heart to realize how often I have been a negative influence in someone's life. Not directing them towards God or not even caring to direct them at all. Joy and truth should imminate from my very being. I know God is putting me on the path towards that trough this study.
Sorry, this is a short post. I'm not much of a "bloveler" (a person who writes blovels, which are novel length entries just in case I lost anyone with my jargon!) God is usually pretty suscinct with me. "Robin, please, if you will just work on this for now..." I may need to do this study five times before I get all I need to out of it.
