This poem was shared by our speaker at our Wednesday Night Ladies Bible Study. It was just too good not to share. I have to take one paragraph at a time, it’s that good. We are studying Romans and this week was Romans 6. Ya might just want to take a gander at it before you read the poem. God’s been showing me that I need to kill off not just my sinful nature but also those things that I think I deserve, or am entitled to: Rights. Ouch! I think that hurts more than killing my sin.
Others May You Cannot
I was in the middle of writing a post on my “oops!” moment I had this morning when I took a little online jaunt to read some of the blogs I frequent. Kristen from We Are THAT Family, wrote a couple posts about a new family in their neighborhood that they just met. Not just any family, but a Christian Russian family from Uzbekistan who had to flee due to persecution. You can read her posts here and here
Since my sisters and I have been studying surrendering and sacrificing it ALL for sake of God’s glory, no matter the circumstances or the cost, well, this hit home right along with all the spiritual gut-shots I’ve been taking the last couple weeks in my Quiet Time. I know “gut-shots” is probably not the best term but that’s what they feel like – on the human side of things. Those clear precise words, whether read or heard, that clearly come from God with a resounding, “Helloooo??!! Are you listening??!!!! I’m talking to YOU!” And the gut feeling you get when you realize you’ve had it all wrong for a long, long time.
ANYWAY! Go read Kristin’s story of meeting this amazing family. And then pray for them. Because they need it. And because we take way, way, wwaaaayyyyy too much for granted in our cushy, Christian USA lives. Really, we have no idea what it really is like to follow Christ in any other part of the world.
And don’t worry… I’ll get that embarrasing post about myself finished up and posted tonight…
Go check them out. The Spring Garden Tour is a marvelous idea and personally, I have 32 a couple areas of my yard that need some help. A LOT of help frankly. So I’m looking forward to that event. I’m hoping I have at least one cute area or idea to share by then so I don’t look as needy as I really am in the gardening department. Yikes!
Also, I just stumbled upon The Preacher’s Wife online Bible Study. I haven’t actually started it per-say… I’m actually doing two separate Bible Studies already at the moment (how’s that for holiness?!! JUST kidding! Actually, I could do with about 50 more because I have so many areas to work on but lets not get into that right now… please…. pretty please….). One of my studies is ending in just a couple weeks so I’m looking to start a new one for the summer. I’m really hoping Preacher’s Wifewill still have hers going at that point. Or at least leave it up so us tag-alongs can still do it.
Anyhoo, I started reading the introduction to the Bible Study and I didn’t just get verklemped. No folks, I was just a flea’s hair away from the ugly cry. Yeah. It’s true. It is sooo touching. You HAVE to go read it. I command you, Go. Now. And then bookmark her page, add her button to your blog and join her Bible Study. I have a sneaky suspicion you’ll be glad you did. And I can’t wait to start it myself. You can keep an eye out for me. I’ll be there in May.
