As is typical in every area of life, I have had a lot of advice concerning these Bible studies and what I should or should not be doing. For me this is slightly reminiscent of having a baby. When each of my three children were born, everyone had advice... most of which was unsolicited. I have received a lot of advice concerning these Bible studies as well. Because I tend to be a person who wants to please everyone, it is hard for me to acknowledge someone's idea without feeling guilty if I don't incorporate their idea. I want to only follow God in this and sometimes it's hard to know if I am following Him or following men.
One of the greatest lessons I've learned is that God really doesn't need me. Often I trip over myself and if I would get out of His way, He could do great and mighty things! I don't want to be in His way with these Bible studies and yet I want to be obedient to anything He wants me to do. So, I continue to pray.
I'm not sure where these Bible studies need to go and I don't know what my role in this is. All I do know is that He knows and He has it under control. I'm so glad Someone does!!
