Today marks the last day myself ,and 20+ other wives, have been making our way through the devotional Wife After God. This has been a great experience this last month and I feel challenged, encouraged and thankful to have gone through the book with other women and walk away closer to God and my husband.
Several months ago I was given the opportunity to review this marriage devotional and really loved the book. After I posted about the book, I was blown away with how many people, near and far, some I hadn't talked to in years, others I didn't even know, were interested in reading through the devotional with me.
So, I set out to set up an online book club, of sorts, through Facebook, so we could doing this book together; share, encourage and grow together. I'll be honest, I had no idea what I was doing when I put this together, but thankfully God knew what He was doing and what He was going to do, so I was able to sit back and let Him work.
I have never viewed myself as a leader, but God seems to have other ideas. He has lead me to lead a Bible study with some precious ladies for the past (almost) 2 years. We don't have a big group, so I was really feeling comfortable with them (still am:) as we meet weekly to study His word. But isn't that just like God to push us out of our comfort zone?! He did that then, in pushing me to start one, and He did it again with this devotional.
What I love, though, about being pushed outside of my comfort zone for Him, is that I learn anew each and every time that without Him, I'm nothing. BUT WITH Him, BECAUSE of Him, I can do anything! So, what is He asking you to do for Him? What are you afraid of? Will you step out of your comfort zone for Him?
