A couple of months ago I shared with you how I'd begun the Good Morning Girl's 'fall' study of Luke.
Well, it is eight weeks later and today I penned my final thoughts and prayers for this study...
I began with 15 minutes at dawn each day, but it only took a few weeks for my morning time with the Lord in this study to increase to 30 minutes.
At the end of six weeks I was spending an hour with Him each daybreak, waking excitedly before dawn and laying in bed until the sun rose just enough that I could read my Bible at the kitchen table and see clearly to write.
I would brew my coffee, and embrace the next 60 minutes alone with Him, His Word, my pen and journal - and prayer.
I wanted more. So I prepared another binder and began writing out the book of James. After my Luke study was over each morning I'd turn to James and write a few verses; pondering their truth and the implications to my own life...
I also started a new prayer journal, where I wrote monthly headings that cover the prayer needs of my family, sponsored children, and friends; making notes on answered prayers, and any insights the Lord had for me.
I also use this journal to write down any Scriptures the Lord has highlighted for my own life, and notes to myself about applying them.
I just need to stitch a cover for it, as He has given me the perfect verse to embellish in thread and when it's done I'll share it with you.
With the wonderfully life changing Luke study over, I have decided to use the resources of the Good Morning Girls once more, and just printed up their Advent Study from last year. Praise God for their generosity in preparing these studies! May they be blessed.
I'm sharing this today to encourage you, sweet sisters.
If you have sensed your walk with Jesus to be slipping away due to life and time restraints, can I hug you, and suggest you just 'start' with a 15 minute breakfast date with Him?
There is no appointment more beautiful or life giving than a date with Jesus.
Good Morning Girl studies can all be seen HERE on their webpage.
Have a blessed weekend, dear friends.
I am praying for you.
