I started a new bible study a few weeks ago. When you do this, don’t you need to be committed to get the most out of it? I’ve missed out on the ‘study’ part. The knowledge is important, I thirst for it, I’m faithful to it though I'm not getting this one and I feel guilty.
I’m not devoting the time that I should. All kinds of excuses are being justified in my mind of why I’m not doing the lessons. Things like I haven’t felt well, I don’t have the energy, I don’t understand it and I need to spend my time on other projects are a few of the excuses that come to mind.

I put a massive guilt trip on myself when our study leader talked about doing her lesson while on a trip to Greece celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary. If that isn’t enough, the study itself is called ‘Duty or Delight’ knowing where you stand with God. That’s enough to derail anyone’s conscience.
Is it just me? Does anyone else ever feel like this? The author is Tammie Head, and this is the first study that she’s written. She makes really good points and I comprehend what she’s saying most of the time … but I feel lost within it.
The fellowship time with the group of ladies at my table is wonderful. These are strong, convicted Christian woman who are setting a tremendous example for me in their inspiration and insightfulness. I’m totally devoted to the hour and a half we spend on Tuesday mornings – just not the book.
