{Behind the Book} Blessings from Above

Relationships with other Christian women have helped me grow in my walk with God more than anything else I can remember. When Christian women come together – God is there (Matthew 18:20). He can do amazing things when we get together.

Proverbs 27:17 says that Iron sharpens Iron – Christian women do that for each other.

I’ve been blessed with multiple women throughout my life that have poured into me, and I’ve learned that we can all learn from each other – it’s never been one-sided. God uses us to sharpen one another.

Every Christian woman can be a blessing to another Christian woman – and whether we realize it or not, we all need each other. Most recently God has blessed me with a wonderful group of Christian women who leave the business of their lives every Monday morning to study God’s Word with me. We’re currently working our way through the beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12) and I’ve learned so much.

God has taken me from an elementary understanding of His blessings and blown me away. He has challenged me to dig deeper – both into His Word and into my heart. I’ve learned that the biggest blessing anyone could ever hope for is the truth that is found in the Gospel. To know we are sinners in need of a Savior. To know who Christ is and what He has done for us. To know that He rose from the grave and is preparing a place for us to spend eternity. How could I ever ask for more?

My favorite part of this study has been the fellowship with the other women. I’m an introvert and talking face-to-face has never been one of my strong suits, but these women have befriended me, loved me and encouraged me. They build me up and help me grow – and I love being able to witness the changes God is making in them as well.

These precious ladies have shared my study outlines with other women and churches and encouraged me to pursue publishing it as a book. So that’s what I’m doing. I’m taking the study sheets I’ve written for them, expounding on them, and will be publishing the study later on this month.

“Blessings from Above” will include 8 study chapters – one for each of the beatitudes, as well as an introduction and conclusion (all based on our 10 week study). It’s my prayer that it helps Christian women to deepen their understanding of God’s Word and open their eyes to the blessings He has already bestowed upon them. Most of all, I pray that God can use this book to encourage them.
