Hey ladies! We are so excited about getting this study started! We know God is moving amidst this group of young women and are so blessed to be a part of it! Jesus says in John chapter five the Father is always at work. The privilege we have to join Him in His work and do this thing called “life” together is all because of His grace. For you girls that weren't there for the first meeting, the Lord has been working this in our hearts for quite a while now. We trust that what our God initiated, He will also work out to be that which would please Him most. The vision we take from scripture is Titus 2: 3-5. “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderous or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.” Ephesians 2 says that we who have believed have His incomparably great power- the same power that raised Christ from the dead is working in us. It is not us, but God working in us to want to do and be able to do what pleases Him. Oh that the same power of the resurrection would bring new life into our homes, families, relationships, neighborhoods, and world! And that is our prayer, that we may encourage one another to follow in His ways and walk in His footsteps, that we would no longer live, but Christ live and rule in us. He's given us such a divine privilige and opportunity to be used as instruments and tools in His work!
Our plan is to meet twice a month, the first Monday and then on the Friday two weeks later. This may seem confusing at first, but we will post the dates on the blog so everyone will know when and what to expect each meeting. Our next meeting will be Monday, April 5th at 7 til 9 pm at Emily's house. Ms. Lois Van Dyke is going to share her testimony with us and afterwards we will have discussion time. We'd like to have snacks available, so if you are able please bring something sweet or salty.
We've created this blog to keep you updated on any info you will need to know between each meeting. So, be sure to check in from time to time!
We are looking forward to this!
Love- Amy and Emily
