Love Story

Our first small group!!

Feeling extremely blessed this morning as God continues to answer our prayers in big ways. For so long we have been longing to be part of a church family and after Jeremy's shift restructuring at work we were able to start attending Real Life Ministries. We have just loved the time we have spent there. We have been praying for a long time to get into an active church where we can begin to meet other couples and families who we would have something in common with. Our church is so large that they rely on small groups to keep everyone connected. One of the first times Jeremy went to the men's breakfast he got hooked up with a guy who was starting a new home group in our area. It happens to be a couples group and they all have kids. Yesterday was the start of the new year so we all got together for a BBQ to get to know each other. It was a really great time and it is getting me so excited for weekly fellowship with these other couples. Another prayer I have had (you can look back several blogs:) was to become more versed in my faith. To dig deeper into the word and be able to speak it from memory and a place of understanding. I found out last night that the way this group works is that we break down a book in the bible and take turns weekly memorizing a story from that book and reciting it back to the group without taking anything away or adding anything to the word. We then reconstruct the story as a group, read it from the bible to see if we added or took anything away, and then discuss what we learned about God and man in the story. Talk about truly learning my Bible!! I didn't think this would happen in such a public fashion, but I have learned that when you ask God for something you had better be prepared because you never know the form in which it will come:)

"Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God." Romans 15:5-7
