Living Beyond Yourself

I started a new bible study today and I am very excited about it. This semester I decided to do something on my own and at home since I will be out for about 2 months. My mother and I are starting the Beth Moore Living Beyond Yourself study. It is a study on the fruit of the Spirit and it is online. It is a 10 week study with 5 days of homework in each week. If you are looking for something to study you should check this one out. You just download the homework and then after you complete the week of lessons then you listen to the video that goes with what you have just studied.

I haven't been very faithful lately with my time in the Word and so, today when I opened up my bible and started to read, my whole soul just let out a huge sigh of contentment! Don't you ever wonder why you let yourself slip in this area when it feels so good to be "in the Word"? I guess it is a little like exercise - something you have to discipline yourself to do but when you do it. . . you feel amazing.

my comments keep getting lost in bloggoland, it appears! anyways, let's try that again! (and since i've copied and pasted my message about six times, you might get the same comment over and over again!)

i know totally what you're saying. i've been talking to a friend about going through some of my old beth moore studies and seeing what new things i take away from them the second time around. you'll have to let me know what you think of this study. i'm sure it'll be great since every one of hers i've done has been really good.

hello, I have just started this study with friends and we are blogging about it at http://beth-moore-lby.blogspot.com/. This is the first Beth Moore study I have worked on. Maybe you have some good suggestions for us. May God bless you in your study...
