the finding

"Ask and it will be given to you;  seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."~ Matthew 7:7

Seek and you will find.

It's a principle that works.

As I spent time seeking yesterday, I found a basketfull of treasures from God last night as we gathered together for Bible study in our home.

The timely lesson last night was Learn Humbly and here are a few tidbits that I jotted down:

*It's the struggle that strengthens.
*God never wastes a struggle.
*Learn from struggles. 
*When God doesn't change a circumstance, He will use it. 
*God never makes a mistake.
*Depend upon Christ.
*God can be glorified by our struggle. 
*Continually surrender, humble yourself, and follow God.
*Struggles are our greatest opportunities for growth.
*Embrace struggles. 

A few Bible passages to help:

*James 1:2-4
*Romans 5:3-5
*John 9:1-7 
*Second Corinthians 1:3-5
*Hebrews 4:15-16
*Second Corinthians 12:9

At the end of the evening I was recharged!  My hope is that by sharing this someone else can be encouraged along the way.  The Lord does not leave us wandering alone, but He's always there and allows other believers to come alongside us for support.  

Today is a new day!  Hallelujah!

It was really good, Tina, although I'm not sure if it's because it was all things the Lord needed to remind ME or just because it was good stuff in general :-)

You're welcome!
