I have been involved in Community Bible Study for seven years now, and I look forward to the study every year. I have been in the leadership in the past, but I took some some time to just go to the class so that I could take care of the baby. Well, this year I was asked to come back into leadership and after much prayer and scripture searching, I have decided to do it. Not that I feel completely capable or unafraid to lead, because I have so much fear, but I feel that the Lord has specifically told me for this situation "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 11:7
I am excited to do this because I need the Lord so much in order to do it. I think that it is such a gift of grace that He provides things in our lives that cause us to want and to need to be near Him. Otherwise I would always be caught up in myself; and I am miserable when my eyes are on myself. I love Him for making me need Him! Because He is always faithful. I have never looked for Him and not found Him. I have never asked Him to open my eyes so that I can see His presence in my life only to find He isn't there. I am excited that He is the one who is in charge and that He holds me up so that I can cling to Him.
