Tonight I met with some girls (Ok, I know we're all grown women, but seriously, I can't bring myself to call us that.) to start Beth Moore's Daniel study. I have heard such wonderful things about it from so many in the blogosphere. Like this fabulous person, for instance. I truly can't wait to see what God is going to reveal to me over the next twelve weeks, and even after tonight's first video installment Beth has me asking a lot of questions and looking deep.
I've mentioned before about how much this change to Edmond has affected me. Tonight I got the sense that more change is forthcoming. This time in my heart as much as in my physical comfort.
Tonight Beth touched on something regarding relevancy in our lives. I didn't write the exact quote, but the point was this: after we give our lives over to Christ, and allow the Holy Spirit in, we become "Christians". And by that very act ensure our place in heaven. But even so, we can be completely irrelevant here on earth by not continuing past that point, sharing that same love of Christ with others, hence furthering the Kingdom of God.
I want to be relevant for Him. My prayer over the next twelve weeks is that God will show me "what's next" here in Edmond. I know he brought us here for T to do a specific job at LifeChurch, but I believe he has a specific job for me too. Something I haven't really done before.
Totally Psyched...that would be me folks. Well, and maybe just a tad scared.
PS If you live in the Metro area (look at me and my native phrases already) and want to attend our study, just email me. We'd love to have you!!
