True Sisterhood - Part II

Last night we had our first night of Bible study since we took a "Summer Break" back in May. After stepping off the plane after a full day of working with my boss and meetings with my customer I was wiped out. I nearly didn't go, but I made myself walk inside. The minute I saw Kathy, I just burst into tears. I was feeling just so overwhelmed by life and simply exhausted. It felt so safe, it was such a good place to let it out. Sweet friends, sweet blessings.

Despite my resistance to going, it was so good to be back with all of the girls, in one room, and sharing and catching up on all that had happened in the past couple months. 1 marriage, 2 engagements, several foreign countries, leading multiple YL kids to Christ, 2 marriage ceremonies given, a summer full of camps, new learnings, new love, difficult challenges, visiting families at home, obedience and blessings. God is doing so much in all of our lives. Just hearing a simple highlight of the summer shows me how he is so active, so living and so engaged in the details of his children.

After sharing, Kathy let us in on what we were going to be studying for the next "semester." We are going to be doing an in-depth study on Philippians with a focus on Community. Understanding God's love, understanding how to love ourselves and love each other. As soon as she started sharing what God had lead her to, I had this funny smile on my face. Ahhh God is so in control! If you read back a couple of posts you can see my thoughts on our group of friends and the community we live in. I have been feeling like God is going to do something huge with our friends (all of which attend this study) and it is so amazing that we are going to study how to live in God-intended community with each other in the process. I'm praying for Satan to stay out of this growth and time of learning for all of us. I feel like we are going to be attacked during this journey - let's be ready with the Armor of God...

Ephesians 6
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

I just commented on Jordan's blog how sweet it was to be back in Kathy's living room and I love your use of the word "sisterhood". You guys are my god-given life line! And I am always deeply glad when you are there :) tears and all! Love you
