I recently started working through the devotional bible study , Lord I Want to Know You with my friends Rachel and Nicole. They announced the study at a good time because I had been really struggling having consistent and quality quiet time, and I was also desperate to know and trust God more.
This season of our life is filled with a lot of unknowns and if you know me you know I operate best when my future is crystal clear to me. The fault in my logic, in my need for a tightly controlled plan is I really never am in control, even when I feel like I am. I struggle the most when I try and yank the reins from Gods hands and try and do it all myself without consulting or relying on God.
Thats why this study already in three days has been so wonderful for me. Yesterday the chapter was on the promises of God and taking heart knowing He's never left us alone and He promises to help us in times of need. As a Christian, in my head, I know these things. But it takes slowing down, reading God's word and reflecting on it over and over again to really let those truths change me.
I went for a run last night after work and somewhere along the way I realized that God has never made a promise He didn't keep. We can rest in those promises, friends. If you're interested in joining the study, you can order your book and catch up today. There are no strict guidelines, we just are reading each day and then blogging our thoughts and reflections at the end of each week. The first few days readings are relatively short, so you could catch up quickly!
