Nehemiah A Heart That Can Break

My church does a Women’s Bible Study every Tuesday morning, and for the last seven weeks we’ve been studying the book of Nehemiah. LifeWay offers the study guide, Nehemiah A Heart That Can Break (Kelly Minter), and it is an amazing book full of insight and humor.

At the beginning of the study we were asked what God had put on our heart, and I really didn’t know,  I wasn’t even sure how to hear God speaking to me. I just kept feeling that children were somehow involved.

Then, the other day as we were finishing up the course, after weeks of praying for a heart of compassion like Nehemiah’s, and asking the LORD to lead me in the direction I needed to go, I finally realized just how much what God had put on my heart had grown and BECOME something.

The LORD answers prayers, and even though he answered mine in a way I had never expected, (I’d been envisioning helping at soup kitchens or in the questionable parts of town where little kids and babies are so often in need), I knew immediately that he had spoken, and I needed to listen and obey.

My life for the foreseeable future is going to be amazing, and scary, and at times I’m sure it will be a battle. I’m also sure I’ll spend a lot of time turning to the LORD in prayer, asking for guidance and help. I’ll also be getting a lot out of my ONE word, FAITH.

So dear readers, keep my family in your prayers as we begin this new adventure with the LORD, and if you’re looking for an interesting and exciting study, check out Nehemiah. You won’t regret it.

Blessing,

Sare

Well O' Faith View All →

A child of God, a Mother-- to two amazing children who make me want to be a better person than I was yesterday, a Wife--to a man who puts our Country before himself, and a Student of life.

Take a few minutes to walk with me while I learn how to live my life the way the LORD created me to.
