Chasing after the heart of God

Deane Watters2 Comments

Starting something new is always an interesting endeavor. If I can get beyond the hyper-focus, the nervousness and the excitement, I can totally look forward to it!  Sunday at Maranatha Bible Church, our home church, I have the opportunity to do just that! Jennie Allen,  founder of the  IF:GATHERING has written a study for women that enables us to explore what we are chasing. She writes, "We are all chasing after something, something that we think will make us happy - comfort, success, a bigger house, or someone's approval. But if we are all honest, it feels like trying to catch the wind."

This eight week study allows us to examine the events that defined David's life and Psalms he wrote out of his experiences. We'll peer into what he was chasing and then reflect on our own pursuits which will lead us to hopefully discover what kind of chasing God desires.

Sixteen women will be joining me for the next eight Sunday mornings! I'm excited, a bit anxious (the good kind) and  eager to be  off on another adventure.  Meeting new women, challenging them and myself  to engage our hearts and minds, digging deeper into scripture and our own hearts to know God more fully; just my kind of excitement!

The study is called CHASE  and I plan to share my discoveries with you as I look within to see what I find myself running after.

The little room we are gathering in is pretty much full for now. But let me know if you'd like to go through this study in the future.
