We asked Tara Wiens, one of the leaders of our Fall Women's Bible Studies, to jot down some reflections on the first week, and how God absolutely showed up in so many of the details.
The first week of Women’s Bible study was such an answer to prayer! At the beginning of the summer we weren't sure we would have enough table leaders, or enough childcare workers which would have greatly effected the women who came. But I was absolutely confident that God was going to provide, this is HIS study! I waited in eager expectation and followed His leads and it all came together incredibly well!! God is a BIG God! We have been blessed above and beyond to have amazing childcare, AND a program for kids 3+, what a bonus!!!
And more woman than we imagined joined and the small gaps of help we needed were filled with enthusiasm and willing hearts!
In her first video that we watched, Beth quoted Hebrews 10:24,25 "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
What a great verse to encourage us right at the beginning of our study! It invokes a sense of transparency and community with one another and an urgency to do so! My heart is that these woman will not just know Jesus from a distance but that they will really KNOW him, intimately and personally and because of the depth of their relationship with Christ all other aspects of their life will fall into his care. The overflow from that can change everything!!
