Esther - Beth Moore
I have done several Bible studies and book studies in my life. But I have never done one that I needed to be completely dedicated to. I have to admit that I am good at starting things but terrible at following through and completing things.
This summer I joined an online (private fb group) Bible study. We are doing Beth Moore's Esther. I have never done a Beth Moore study but I did hear her speak once at Women of Faith many years ago.
We started the study on Monday and I have to say that I have already learned more in these two days than I have learned in some studies I have taken months to do.
I really enjoy that it is a small lesson every day. But it digs deep. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to Biblical history but she actually makes it easy to follow. She always refers back to other books to back up her history and view points.
There have been a few words that I had to look up (sanguine - being one of them). But I am doing this to learn so if I am expanding my vocabulary as well, then that is another plus.
One of the questions yesterday was: What are you hoping for as you begin this Bible study?
Me? I'm hoping for a better understanding of the scriptures. I want to fall in love with God's word. I want to 'want' to read and study His word every day.
If you are interested in learning more about this study or joining us, please leave me a comment or drop me and email.
