Those who go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters,
They see the works of the Lord,
And His wonders in the deep.
Those verses were part of my Bible reading this morning. Beside them in the margin of my Bible I have written, “BSF-CA, May 12, 2006. Five years ago I was a group leader in Bible Study Fellowship, and quite content to continue serving in that position until I was and old lady! Five years ago, as the BSF year was ending, I was asked to pray about being the class administrator in my class. Scary thought to me. The Lord used those verses to encourage me to step out in faith and not be afraid of all I was fearing, and to commit. He promised me that I would “see His works” and “His wonders” as I stepped into “deeper waters”. Now I cannot believe it has been five years ago. How timely to be reminded of His promises to me again, as Monday we ended our study in the book of Isaiah. It was our Share Night and many women gave testimony of those works and wonders that the Lord had taught them this year! It was a great evening! And God has been so very faithful to His leading and promises to me personally!
It has been a great year! The Lord has taught me many lessons. And I have had the privilege of serving with some wonderful women. Here is our admin team:
Emily, Stephanie, Sherry, April and Gayle
This is our class staff: Class Administrator, me, Substitute Teaching Leader, Gail, Teaching Leader, Alethea, and Children’s Supervisor, Debbie.
A great year? Absolutely! A welcome rest for the summer? you bet!
