Good things are happening in the two DBSs I mentioned in my last post. These groups of women are exploring the nature of God. They are finding their time together is uplifting and enriching. The lady who pulled them together shared with me:
“The ladies have really opened up and have been very willing to share what is going on in their lives. One lady in particular does go to our church and has for a couple of years but has not made any real connections with anyone in the church. She has been extremely shy. I am happy to report that she has opened up and shared in the group. Tears just flow from this precious lady and I can see that healing is happening in her life.
I have to say that I believe the questions (thankful and struggles) really set us up to get into the word. They are so receptive and excited to discuss the scriptures at that point of the meeting.”
Questions 1 & 2 remind us to note our blessings and our needs. Together they prime our minds to hearing from God. Answering them disciples us to praise God and turn to Him in intercession. They tune our ears to hear what in his character addresses our human predicament.
This lady also shared that the lady who responded to the Craigs List ad, “has continued to come. She is having some serious struggles and it is apparent now why God led her to join our group. Even though she is a new believer I am in awe of how God is comforting her and leading her. She is clinging to Him and staying in the word.”
Just wanted to give you an update to this process. Join me in praying that more groups will begin as these ladies are discipled and begin to share what they are learning with the people who come to mind as they answer the question, “Who do you know who needs to hear this passage?”
