Why I've Been MIA...Busy Studying!
Thursday, January 29, 2009
I can tell that I haven't been joining in with my SWAT team as much, and I really miss everyone. It doesn't help that now I can't get onto SPARKPeople at work to drop in for a minute. But mainly, I've been spending a lot of time reading and studying for my class: "Perspectives on the World Christian Movement". This is an absolutely wonderful class. So far we've had topics like, "Our God is a Missionary God", "The Story of His Glory", "The Mandate of Missions", and this week we're on "The Coming of His Kingdom". It's very much like being in an intense Bible Study, and so far I'm loving it! Last week in class the leader read one of our quiz answers out loud - I was stunned when I realized it was mine! I am seeing so many things in God's Word about how blessed I am to know the story of God's love for me, and about how much He desires this story to be shared with those who don't know. I don't know if God will call me to actually leave my home and go out somewhere else to share His Word, but this week I'm renewing my passport. Our church has short term missions trips on the calendar all the time. I do know that whatever God's call is to me, He'll lay that same call on DH's heart - He won't throw us into confusion over it. There's so much I wish I could share. I'll try to blog some specific thoughts or stories when I can.
Lord, Please bless each one of my Spark Sisters. Thank you. Amen
