Jesus: The Eternal Valentine

Let’s see…He spoke flowers into existence, created chocolate, wrote and amazing love letter and died for you and for me…Jesus is the eternal Valentine!

Tonight, we had a “Fond-of-You Fondue Party” for our Greek Leadership Ladies Bible Study. About 20 of us gathered to enjoy chocolate and just a few of the breath-taking truths of Scripture…

If this is true…why do we long for anything extra? May these truths liberate us.

Here’s my new FAVORITE song, which illustrates my point perfectly..it’s sung by my new friend Ashley and her husband. She is witty, beautiful, talented and in love with Jesus. Even when He doesn’t give her what she wants… #soulsister? #downloaditasap #fundadoptions #playonrepeatnon-stop

I pray that tonight, you will know you are richly loved!

“Richly Loved”

CHORUS:
If I am richly loved, then why do I fear
If I am richly loved, and you are right here
If I am richly loved, then what else do I need?
I am richly loved, by my Eternal King

All my doubting, never got me far. All my distrust, only left me scars.
All my running, still you pursue me. All my failing, still you forgive me.
Cause You are good!

CHORUS

I keep asking, I keep waiting, always knowing that You do not ignore my plea.
You won’t pull back. You won’t withdraw. You will never give up pursing me!
Cause I am Yours!

CHORUS

When all other ground is sinking, You’re the hope that I’m still standing
Cause You are not a God who lets me down
And when my heart is slow to praise You, You do not let go.
You will always meet my needs.

In this season, I am learning, You’re not silent or slow.
If you only, give me more of You, it will always be enough.
You are the prize! You are the prize! You are the prize!

 

Fridays at Noon

I have had such a fun new addition to my usual schedule this semester!

Every Friday afternoon about 12 girls gather for our “Greek Leadership Ladies” Bible study. We have a Tuesday night Leadership Bible study led by our intern, Shelley, but it got so big we had to split it this semester and I have gotten to lead half of the lovely ladies.

It has been the joy of my semester to study Galatians (using Tim Keller’s resources) with them and to see the Word renew their minds and hearts. They do such a good job opening up about what God’s done in their lives (9 out of the 12 have started walking with the Lord while in college!) and how they need to be held accountable. They have been committed to praying for each other and even to memorizing Scripture!

They are really wrestling with Galatians and learning so much. What a privilege to spend time with these girls. I am so proud of them for giving their Friday afternoons to invest in God’s Word and in community with each other! Praise!
