I fell in love with the Lord largely through His Word. And I got a little bit obsessed with it. I ended up getting a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies because I was so fascinated by the Bible and all that it contains. I enjoyed studying it from a more academic standpoint, and I learned a lot about God and His people by doing that. But nothing compares to spending time in His Presence, to seeking His face, to opening up His very living and active Word and asking for Him to meet us. And He is so faithful to meet us--on the pages of His Word, on the couches of our living rooms, in groups of people and in quiet places! We have a God who beckons us, “Come,” and who welcomes us into His presence when we do. Because of Jesus. Because He did all that was necessary to draw a broken and ruined people back to Himself.
I write and teach Bible studies mainly for women but really for anyone who is interested! I’m working on getting some of them up on the website so that you’ll have access to them. I can’t get enough of the Lord and His Word, and I’m so grateful to get to open it up with each of you.
The blog is where I write about the things I wonder and the things I believe about our Great Big God who spun the whole world into being with just a word and then knelt in the dust to breathe life into the lungs of man. He is a God who desperately wants to know us and to be known by us, and He is One who has done all that was necessary to usher us into the place of His Presence. We need only draw near.
“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16
