I'm not an elegant writer. I'm not organized and I do not follow an outline. I usually just get behind my computer keyboard and start typing. Usually, some emotion has caused me to voice an opinion, so I let it out. I usually don't worry about whether the post flows, or if anyone will read it. In all honesty, most of what I write is written on this platform, because long Facebook status' wear me out. Punctuation or grammar...yeah, not a priority for me, either.
I really hope to change some of that. Like I wrote yesterday, I really do love going back through old posts and reading about our lives. I hope that this year, my focus can be on the story telling part of my emotions. We'll see.
Beginning today, I am joining over 40,000 (that's FORTY-THOUSAND) women from all over the world in a bible study written by the amazing Lysa TerKeurst. Her book, "Made to Crave" is one that I've had downloaded on my kindle app for three years. (If only I had read it three years ago, sigh) I attended a bible study at First Baptist in Bristow with some really sweet gals that Mrs. TerKeurst wrote and fell in love. She wrote the book for me. FOR ME. It was a lesson on becoming more than just a good bible study girl... Lysa is about relationships and as I get older, I understand the importance of that word.
I signed up for an online bible study about losing your mind, but failed to participate. I do that a lot... I start something then stop. quit. walk away. I am determined to not walk away from this one.
I'm looking forward to what God has for me. I know that He is herding me in this direction, I've fought Him every way I know how. I'm not looking to look like Jennifer Lawrence, or Jennifer Lopez, or even Jennifer Hudson (ummm) when this is over. I am looking to crave my Jesus. I am looking forward to replacing some past hurts, and letdowns with the love of my God.
If you are interested in this bible study, would you let me know? Promise- we aren't too late to get started. Even if we wait a week, I'll do it with you. If you aren't wanting to participate this time would you follow along with me? Keep me accountable? Call me out for hiding? :)
Here we go.
