I think God reads my blog. I posted about how loud the music was at my church, and for the last two weeks, it hasn't been so loud. I learned today that they had an expert come in and balance the sound. Let me just say I appreciate it so much.
Today's sermon challenged me so much. The question was Have you Lost Jesus? In family, in career, or in church. The possibility of maintaining a personal relationship takes an intentional effort.
The preacher mentioned the idea that group dating may be wise for teenagers, but to establish a one-on-one relationship, the couple has to spend time one-on-one. He said that many times we try to group date God. I have been guilty of that. This summer I'm taking the Beth Moore Bible study which requires about five 45 minute sessions each week and two hours on Tuesday with the other ladies in the group. I'm learning so much about myself and God in those private sessions. I'm so jealous of young people who have already figured this out at an early age. Throughout my life I have had periods of private study and periods when I depended on teachers and preachers way too much.
