My new years resolution was to get back into Bible Study. I started the Heart to Heart bible study several years ago when we attended Hillside Church but God had other plans for our family that took us away from Hillside and placed us elsewhere. I have loved all the churches we attended and love our church home and family at crossroads but I miss the Heart to Heart study because it is the kind of format where you take the scripture and dissect it and adapt it to your own life. I just love it.
For years I have tried to get back to the study but always found something to keep me away. This year since I made my resolution to study more God put it on my heart to go back and so I did.
I have only gone three times and I have been greatly enriched and eternally blessed. It was so much fun to see some faces I have not seen in 9 years, they all look great. There are a lot of women who attend the study but you sit in small groups so you connect on a more intimate level. God is so good, the leader of my table is a woman I knew 9 years ago when I previously attended, I just love when God does stuff like that. The ladies at my table are an amazing mix and I love that too.
We are studying the story of Joseph in Genesis and all the obstacles he faced, but all in all, he knew at a young age that he had the favor of God and this faith got him through all his trials.
Joseph's faith was rock solid, he also reflected God's love and was unapologetic about whom he served. In a land where multiple Gods were adored, he never waivered and therefore, he was blessed.
Wow, Blows me away... Gods favor...
God Favors me in so many ways... Do I reflect? Sure hope so...
I am a friend of God... He calls Troy Friend
