It was the suggestion that faith is a choice.
Now, having always considered faith to be something that "grew" in you, something you had to personally work hard to cultivate, this was a highly refreshing thought for me to think about. If all I had to do was choose (like picking chocolate over vanilla), I would choose faith all day long. Then it occurred to me that maybe I simply had the habit of looking where I had been, to figure out where I was going, instead of looking ahead. So, I started making a conscious decision to "choose faith" if ever I spotted an opportunity on my horizon. What a boon to realize there were little opportunities everywhere, once I started looking for them! And what a surprise to discover how much I liked doing it. There was a bonus, too.
Choosing faith has made me feel joyful. It makes me smile when I think about it, and gives me something to look forward to every day. What's more, it doesn't go away, like so many other enjoyable things do after they're over. In short, this little Bible study made me think, and discover new things about my own Christianity. And that's how I knew for sure where this secret truly came from. Perhaps if you read this book (and I hope you will), God will whisper something joyful to your heart, as well. Meanwhile, I'm very glad Heather Bixler took the time to share what she heard.
Thank you, Heather!
One of my favorite quotes was the following: "Often our heart and mind can wander to the worries and desires of tomorrow. When our mind and heart wander to tomorrow, or next week, we lose sight of the beautiful things God has already given us." What a great reminder that faith is living each day to the fullest and trusting God for our future.
Week One: Focus is on being present to today, rather than the past or future. It is important to focus on the present rather than the "what ifs" of tomorrow that may or may not come to be. A misplaced focus robs us of the blessings and happiness that we do have! Misplaced focus often leads to feelings of overwhelm.
Week Two: Focus is on the truth of who is in control and who is not.
Week Three: Focus is on commitment. In our "drive-through" and "disposable" society we hear little of commitment and perseverance, both of which are strands in the cord of faith.
Week Four: Focus is on grace. Grace, the unmerited favor of God is an outworking of faith!
At the end of each devotional/scriptural passage Bixler lists a series of questions to prompt and guide one's meditation on the topic for the week and encourages readers to journal their thoughts and write out their prayers. I have done journaling for years and appreciate these kinds of helps. I personally feel that journalling is a very powerful spiritual discipline; it does not come easily or happen overnight but it is well worth the effort!
The second word from Heather's study that stayed with me is Today. She exhorts us to enjoy what God has given us today and become 'seed planters' so that we can enjoy a harvest tomorrow. To me, that means being careful to invest my time, talents, money, and physical health so that I can bring glory to God.
Finally, I learned about Commitment in the book. That means deciding that quitting is not an option. You are going to stand on God's word no matter what storms may come, no matter what it takes.
My faith was definitely strengthened by reading this short, but powerful study. I have a passion for the bible and its power to change the lives of those who choose to invest in its treasures. That's what guided me to create Abiding Love: Bible Study for Women (Book 1). I know many people will be blessed from Heather Bixler's Faith bible study. I sure was!
