BSF And Inspiration

Today was wonderful! I awakened and got the children ready to go to their grandmother's. After dropping them off I headed off to Bible Study Fellowship. On the way there I was listening to the lyrics of this awesome song! Someone recently asked which song really speaks to you about adoption. This song REALLY speaks to me, about adoption and so many other things in life! It's one of my favorites that we sing at church, so I thought I'd share it with you....

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:

Psalm 139
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:

Awesome post hon! May it find its way to ears that hear!!! I am so grateful to know that God has this all in HIS hands, because I am just a feeble small one in this grand scheme we call life! I cannot move mountains. I cannot heal the broken. I cannot even
stand up under my own head somedays!!!

Oh Anita....I LOVE BSF. I was in it for 6 or 7 years when our 3 bio kids were little and they LOVED it too! I learned so much from the Lord during those years. Enjoy each day as HE reveals more and more to you and your kiddos! HUGS! ~Anita
