Let's Take A Look Back...

Hello girls :)

The last two years have obviously been amazing. God placed 18 girls in a PT program that would allow us to help others physically while also creating this Bible study to help us spiritually! 

I felt led to start this blog as a continuation of what we had at our academic time at Mercer. As usual, I don't really have a plan, just a nudge from the Lord that we should have this. I would love to continue sharing what God has shown me and what I have heard from other Christians. It can also be a place for you to share as well. Feel free to comment or post yourself! 

Do you remember our first Bible study of the semester? 

We talked about how God led the Israelites across the Jordan River, their last huge obstacle between them and the Promised Land. It seemed impossible, so God parted the River like He parted the Red Sea and allowed them to cross. 
BUT, they were not alone. 
The Ark of the Covenant - where God's Spirit dwelt - entered before them, stood in the midst as they crossed, and did not leave until they had crossed. We talked about how we were in a similar position (comprehensives and finals before going to clinic) but the Lord had led us here and He would not leave us to fight a battle alone. 
"If God be for us, who can be against us?"* Isn't that a glorious promise?! I can tell you that I thought back to this passage almost every day and it helped me tremendously when I was having anxiety and sleepless nights about our final week. 

The Israelites found faith by looking back on what God had already done or them
God proves Himself faithful to His children.** He never changes.*** 

Maybe you have excited anxiety about starting clinic. I may camp out at my site so I won't be late for my first day! #PTschoolPTSD Or maybe you have some personal Jordan Rivers. Remember this promise. Remember what the Lord has done for you. He will never leave you or forsake you.^ Keep looking back to be reminded of the security you have right now, and for your future, in Jesus Christ.

Love you girls, 

* What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?..Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?..Nay, in all things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.                                     Romans 8.31-32,35,37 
**  The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.                                   Lamentations 3.22-23 

*** For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed. 
                                                                                                 Malachi 3.6 
^ Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.                 Hebrews 13.5
