New Bible Study
I went to the Christian Book Store to get the Beth Moore Study of Esther. They did not have it, but they did have one that I have never even heard of... "Stepping Up" a journey through the Psalms of Ascent. I called my church office while I was in the book store and they had some extra books there, and they had the DVD's that go along with the study. I was watching the introductory video yesterday, and Beth said, " It is no accident that you are doing this Bible study... but God wanted you to do this." So... it was really not meant for me to do the Esther study at this time, but I agree with Beth... this is what I need today. I get so undisciplined with my daily Bible reading. When I do a study, it seems I am more committed. I started out the year with my memory verses, but my problem is... I keep losing them!! I still have not given up on this. This new study is a six week study with 30 days of homework. I am not going to say that I will have it done in six weeks. But I love the Psalms, and I know I am going to love this study. I have found that when you are feeling sad or overwhelmed or disheartened or discouraged... go to the Psalms. What better way to be uplifted than by praising God!!!
