“Taking this course changed my life.” – Student, Abounding Faith: Believing God for the Impossible class
I’m still in awe of the beautiful feedback I got from the lovely ladies in my Abounding Faith: Believing God for the Impossible summer class at the New York School of the Bible (NYSB).
What a blessing it was to teach a class based on one of my books at the same Bible school I attended a few years ago!
It was a joy and honor to encourage my students to BELIEVE!
I’m overwhelmed by their feedback.
The same student quoted above said reading the Abounding Faith: 30 Bible Heroes Who Will Inspire You to Believe God for the Impossible devotional helped to awaken barren places in her life and helped her be content in other areas of her life.
Another student is hoping there will be an Abounding Faith Part 2 class.
To my delight, I kept gaining students as the weeks went on instead of losing students during the beautiful summer Saturdays in NYC.
I was stunned when one lady showed up during the last class and announced, “I’m prepared to fail this class because I haven’t been able to make it the other weeks, but I had to come to meet you. You were so vibrant on the phone.”
I’m speechless. The Lord loves to surprise me!
The women were sweet, smart and studious. We had lively and heartfelt discussions about the Bible heroes we covered in class and about what God was stirring in our hearts.
One student said that as she was reading the Abounding Faith book, she felt the Lord calling her to pursue her bachelor’s degree and get better prepared for her future ministry work. Amazing!
Others shared how they were encouraged by the Bible heroes they read about and were challenged by the reflection questions in the Abounding Faith devotional.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from teaching a summer class on Saturday mornings in June. I didn’t know who would show up and how it would go, but God provided the students and met us in class each week.
I’ve been at podiums and pulpits at churches and chapel services lately. I’m grateful that God saw it fit for me to reenter the classroom setting.
Back when I was a student in this very same room, I never dreamed that one day I’d return as a member of the faculty. I’m honored that the NYSB gave me this opportunity to teach a class based on one of my books.
I’m also honored to have gotten to inspire my faithful students.
Only God knows what’s next…. thank you for your prayers and encouragement!
