This year in BSF we are studying the life of Moses, Exodus through Deuteronomy. The lecture today was amazing! Our teaching leader spoke about something that has been on my heart for quite some time: "Do you want your life to count for something?" She then answered that in order to live this kind of life, one that is lived to the fullest, we must make knowing God our top priority. Not just knowing ABOUT God, but really knowing Him intimately, like you know your spouse, you best friends, or your children.
At one point she quoted some verses that made me think our our precious Andrew:
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
God has always planned for Andrew to be a part of our family. And He has always planned for all of us to be alive, right here, right now. He has a plan for my life, and for yours. Which inspires me to continue asking, am I living this life to the best of my ability? I want to KNOW Him well enough to hear perfectly when He calls, so that I can move in His will and in His perfect timing. And as God has recently re-confirmed to our family, as we listen and respond in faith, even when it's not the easy thing to follow Him, it is so worth it!
I love that BSF continues to inspire me to move into an even deeper relationship with the Jesus. If you are looking for a great Bible Study, BSF is in many different areas and many different countries. There is also an incredible children's program too! There are even classes in Taipei! (We should check that one out, Becky!!) For more information you may visit the website at: http://www.bsfinternational.org/
