The past six weeks I have been involved in a Beth Moore Bible study with about 24 other ladies in my church. We have been studying the book of Daniel. I cannot begin to tell you how much I have learned in these short six weeks! The Word of God is so alive that as you study you just see today's world in living color.

There was one short paragraph in our last week's study that so captivated my thoughts and spoke such truth. I just wanted to share that with you in hopes that you might see God's truth in the following words.
"Our lives are a paradox: Life is found by losing it for the sake of Christ. A vessel is filled by pouring out. The key to receiving is giving. The key to living is dying to self.
The greatest in the kingdom is the servant of all. God has been right all along. His upside-
down path is the only way to true contentment and satisfaction.
The world's claim of happiness is betrayed by a ever-increasing lust for more. Nothing
ever suffices. Nothing ever will.
Christ alone satisfies the ailing human soul."
Do I believe this? Yes, I do.
With all my heart.
