For close to a year, God has been speaking to me, telling me to delve deeper into the Bible and to not only study it but to teach what I learn along the way.
As I tend to do, I shrugged off the idea and gave myself all of the reasons why I shouldn’t write a bible study – I’m too busy. I’m too tired. I’m not knowledgeable enough. Who would care? There are many studies out there; I don’t need to add another.
Do you ever do that? Know something is from God but still reason it away?
Over the last several years, I’ve worked very hard to listen and obey. It’s evident with my current hesitation and excuses that I haven’t totally learned my lesson. Otherwise, I wouldn’t fight so hard.
God’s Answer to My Prayers
I’ve prayed so often throughout these months, asking God to make His desires for me clear. He answers my plea by impressing on my heart and in my mind the desire to grow more, to learn more, and to teach. More.
And then, in further answer to my prayers, three different women approached me at three separate times all asking me if I had any ‘simple’ Bible studies available. In their own way, with their own perspective, they each opened their hearts to me, telling me they lacked confidence in their faith and their knowledge of the Bible. They wanted to go back to the basics, digging deep into one book at a time learning all that happened, what stories were told, and how to apply the verses to their daily lives.
Because of the timeliness of these requests, I knew God was speaking to me through these women. Despite my fears, I listened. Trusting God brings so many blessings. Amen?
The Acts of the Apostles
The Book of Acts intrigues me. Imagine the apostles, having witnessed the many signs and miracles Christ showed them after His resurrection, getting ready to embark on a journey to teach non-believers the Truth. There comes a time in all of our learning when we must step forward and share what we know.
Studying their journey – their fears, their faith, their willingness to move forward and obey what Christ asked of them – blesses us all.
I hear God calling me to dig deeper into His Word so that I may understand and apply His truths to my life. I pray that through my writing, I’m able to relay messages revealed to me fully and effectively to you. I’m learning along with you and welcome your comments and questions.
Thank you for coming here in your search for love, hope, and truth. Let’s work together to support and encourage each other in His name.
I look forward to hearing from you. Share with me what you learn as we grow together in Him.

A Brief History of Acts
While the author of Acts remains a mystery, many believe that Luke wrote it. I really like the explanation I found which at biblica.com which states, “The book of Acts provides a bridge for the writings of the New Testament. As a second volume to Luke’s Gospel, it joins what Jesus “began to do and to teach” as told in the Gospels with what he continued to do and teach through the apostles’ preaching and the establishment of the church.”

While this study is designed to read and study the book of Acts in 30 days, it’s okay to take longer if you need. Some days, it might take a little extra time to reflect on certain verses. I don’t want you to think you can’t or won’t do it when life gets in the way and you miss a few days. Just jump right back in and go from there.
I’ll be praying for you!
