When You Don’t Know What To Do

So it’s quiet this morning. S.M. is at work. The sun is shining through my very dirty front window. I am reading David Jeremiah’s, “What to Do When You Don’t Know What To Do.”

I’m two readings behind.

My next Women’s Bible Study is Wednesday.

I do the Bible Studies so I can stay disciplined in the Word.

A better question is, “Why do I need to do a Bible Study and why do I need teachers to teach me?”

With all the commentaries and stuff available online, I really don’t need to do a Bible Study.  Yet, the open discussion is attractive. Not to mention, what if the conclusions I come up with are wrong? There are people who have spent years studying the Greek and the commentaries, and so I value their contribution. Open discussion leads to better answers and stronger faith and understanding of the One whom I worship.

Also, it’s nice to have people to pray for me. When I am not able to make my Bible Study, they miss me. The accountability is wonderful. When I think of attending church, I don’t think of stringent rules or regulations like the Mormon church. It’s a whole different environment where doubt is welcomed, questions are okay, and the gathering is a safe place to speak up. I love the freedom I have when I attend that church.

Now I am procrastinating…so back to studying!

I prefer private conversation. You are more than welcome to email me in lieu of a comment or contact me via social media.
