It’s been about four years since my husband and I started our getting-out-of-debt process. I’ve said before that debt was just a symptom of a much deeper spiritual problem. I will never forget that moment of realization and the subsequent phone call I made to my Bible study leader. Over the years she has become much more than just a facilitator for a Beth Moore Bible study. She has become one of my dearest friends, who though we don’t see each other often, when we do it’s like time never existed between each coffee date.
We met for coffee yesterday. Well, I had coffee. She had something much less desirable! This week’s Praise Project is the result of the two hours I spent with her and the fabulous reminders of why this Praise Project exists in the first place. Praise God for:
1). Freedom from captivity . To be free from captivity is to be free to live the life God has designed for us.
3). Freedom to be truthful with a non-judgmental friend
4). Mutual edification-one of many built-in benefits of being a member of the Body of Christ
5). The reminder that I am not the only one on the planet with physical ailments! Misery loves company, doesn’t it?
6). Opportunities to watch God do amazing things in a challenging situation
7). Both of us agreed that one of the greatest gifts in life is coming home to a spouse that actually likes us and wants to be with us.
