Day 8: Bible Study Fellowship (BSF)

Day 8: Bible Study Fellowship (BSF)

31 Days of Gratitude 

I am immensely grateful to A. Weatherall Johnson who started BSF over 50 years ago. The richness of study and quality of leadership are distinctives that far surpass any other Bible study organization anywhere in the world. They teach our next generation of believers, i.e., students from preschool through high school, as well as adults.

What’s really cool is adult and student classes around the world are studying the exact same lesson I am, students included. It’s nice to come home and be able to help your child with their lesson because you’re studying the exact same focus from week to week.

I’ve already gone through the seven-year study with one child and am on my second round of seven with my youngest. Consequently, both have very deep Bible knowledge and often will repeat parables or relevant passages when we hit those bumps in life’s journey.

Two years ago they added Isaiah as an eighth study and as of 2014 they will add a Revelation study, something I have been itching for years to study in depth.

This year we are studying Genesis, which is perfect for me right now. I am embarking on a new beginning and getting back to the beginning is precisely what I should be studying.

Once my son goes off to college, I will continue with BSF because as I and life circumstances change the Word that never changes will hit me differently. I have found this to be true during my second round of study. Just this year, a woman I served in leadership with retired from leadership after over 35 years of service to BSF as a discussion leader. She has inspired me to stay in BSF for as long as I can stand it.

Who knows? Maybe someday God will call me back into leadership and perhaps even get asked to be a teaching leader.

What are you thankful for today?

Others blogging a 31-day series for October:

Boricua Confidential chronicles my new life as a single mom of two kids after my husband died from cancer on our son’s seventh birthday. Join me on this journey of change, revival, reformation, discovery and new direction ordered of God. Being a widow ain’t easy, that’s for sure. I refuse to rollover and die. Quite the contrary. I intend to thrive from this crazy life. You can’t keep this woman down. If I’m down, I won’t be for long.

God created me to bounce back. Watch me.
