A Month of Thankfulness: Day Ten

This morning, I've been preparing for the study of Revelations that I'm doing this year and which meets every Tuesday evening. This study is in addition to the rich study of Hebrews that my dear friends, Kim and Carol, and I are now into our third year of. I just took Charlie out for a short walk and I was thinking about how thankful I am for the opportunities I've had to study God's Word over the years in an organized way with women...and sometimes men too...that were serious about knowing who God really is and drawing closer to Him through that knowledge and understanding. I'm thankful for the way He continues to refine my understanding of Him and His truths and increase my freedom in Him as more and more old thoughts, thoughts I didn't even realize I had until they fell away, were revealed as bondage.

16But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:16-17

Visit Rebecca to share in the thanksgiving each day of this month of November.

Semper Reformanda!

You are so right. I too often take this for granted, but the opportunities I've been given throughout my life to study with other smart, sincere Christians is beyond imagination. Thanks for the reminder to give thanks for it!

Yes and amen, this is my testimony as well--glory to God! And I'm currently studying Hebrews too!

"refine my understanding" really does say it here. The fact that His grace extends beyond the revealing of His truth to the growing of His truth in our lives is marvelous indeed!
