I started going to a women's Bible study on Thursday nights. I have been wanting to do this for a long time but I have let time get in my way. So now I am going every Thursday evening. Right now we are studying the book Spiritual Disciples for the Christan Life. I missed a few weeks and just got my book a few days ago but I love this book and this class. The book is a common sense way to be a disciple of Christ. We are now in chapter 6 in the study but I plan on reading from chapter 1.
Any way I have titled this post memory verses because every week we are to pick a verse from the bible to memorize that speaks to us and helps us. I decided I would post mine here also (that will help me remember it).My verse this week is familiar to me but it is very much something I have to think about everyday. It is:
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your request to God. And the peace of God which transcend all understanding will guide your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
I picked this verse first of all because I have a problem with anxiety. I get anxious and worry about everything. Second of all when I present my request to God I must do it with thanksgiving and cofidience God has already told me to come to Him and ask and I shall recieve. Being a mature Christian woman I know what I need from God and He knows my needs. I should praise Him and thank Him for knowing me and being the wonderful God He is.
