Good Morning Girls!
Our study in the book of Ruth is finished.
But, our fellowship continues!
We are Good Morning Girls In the Word, a group of women who read the Bible, from cover to cover.
Good Morning Girls is an online Bible study for women.
Started by Courtney Joseph in her church, she took the Bible study to the Internet in 2009 and invited ladies from all over America to join her in keeping each other accountable to their daily time with the Lord.
Little did she know that this Bible study would extend beyond the borders of America to literally every region of the world!!
In 2014 I joined Courtney, together with my dear friends Misty, Mandy and Bridget, in helping to lead Good Morning Girls. It has been an amazing journey as we’ve watched Good Morning Girls not only grow beyond what we could have dreamed or imagine, but we’ve had the amazing honor to see women’s lives changed by daily digging into God’s Word!
Good Morning Girls is all about simply reading the Bible.
We believe that there is power in the Word of God and that the Word of God alone can defeat the enemy. So, we read one chapter a day 5 days a week. And we will continue this method until we’ve read through the entire Bible!!
We mainly follow Courtney’s plan. But about a year ago, Courtney decided to slow the pace, so we are studying the Bible through seasons of the year.
The Bible is God’s Word.
„But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’“ Matthew 4:4
Every step of the way the Bible proves that it is one whole book – the Old Testament is the shadow of everything that the New Testament brings us.
Or as I’ve said before: The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed, the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.
„ For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.“ Hebrews 4:12
God’s Word was with God and was God and dwelt among us – as is written in Gospel of John. To know the Bible, to know what it says and keep what is written – that’s God’s desire for every child of His.
I want to invite you to join me in getting to know the Bible even better, to understand its message better and to know Jesus better, and His love for us!
Starting November 5, Judith from His Unmeasured Grace will be joining me in leading a Bible Art Journaling workshop.
The workshop will take place right in our Facebook group: Good Morning Girls in the Word, and each Wednesday she will be sharing a blog post here at A Little R & R.
We will also be following Courtney in her annual Make Your Home a Haven challenge (for those who are creatively challenged, or who generally don’t really get into journaling).
These are simple ways to put into daily practice what we are studying.
Come and join us.
The Bible Art Journaling workshop and the Make Your Home a Haven Challenge begin: November 5th.
Until than let’s stay in God’s Word, feed on it, encourage one other, and pray for each other that we may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of God! Luke 21:36
