Wow! I remembered!
Today, I am thankful that I can read and study the Holy Bible without the fear of persecution for doing so. I am also thankful that I can worship him in the way I feel comfortable and see fit. There are many variations of Christianity and, in MY eyes, no one way of worship is better than the other...all that matters is that you BELIEVE and have FAITH and TRUST in our LORD! The book with my Bible is the study material for the current Bible study I am doing. Although I haven't attended like I'd intended to and am sooooooo far behind on my "homework", I still enjoy going to the class and I benefit from it when I do!
In today's pre-class prayer, the woman leading said something that really hit home. I don't claim to be the most devout, studious, faithful Christian. I actually feel a little pang of jealousy when I meet those people who are just "IN" the Lord's spirit...in everything they do! So, I often find myself questioning my Belief and Faith. But the woman today said, "God is waiting on US to be ready for HIM." We can't force it, we can't pretend...we have to be truly ready to let go and let GOD. I guess I've never really gotten ready enough yet...but one day, I will have that "moment" and I WILL know and will be at peace from my struggles.
