Believing God with a Pumpkin Spice Latte in Hand

A couple of weeks ago I shared that I was joining a women's bible study with the hopes of making new friends and drawing closer to God.  I am stoked to say that both of those things are happening!  So far, the "Believing  God" study by Beth Moore has been so amazing!  It is really opening my eyes to a new way of viewing my faith and what it is that delights God.  My biggest revelation so far has been that what causes righteousness to be bestowed upon me.  It is not the WORKS that I do, but the amount of FAITH I put in God.  It is about believing God is who He says He is, that He can do what He says He can do, and that I am who He says I am.  God has been showing me that my "good works" are not necessarily bad, but the fact is they will not change anything or do anything to draw me deeper into my walk unless I actually BELIEVING GOD!   I am still in the process of fully wrapping my head around this one.

In addition to drawing me deeper in my walk, this study has enable me to begin building a few new relationships.  Nothing major to report like a new close friends, but I can see some great relationships beginning to bud.

Now it is time for the pumpkin spice latte part of the post.  I just know that God created this drink to comfort my soul!  I love to drink one while diving into His word and my bible study, or to start my morning off on the way to fun-filled day of teaching.  I know a pumpkin spice latte will also be my companion to many MNU football games this fall.
