Seeker Groups

So do you know what a Seeker Group is? As I understand the concept, it's a group facilitated by a believer in Jesus Christ for people who have not yet made that decision but who are seeking more information on the topic. But how about a group for believers in Jesus Christ who want to grow and learn more?
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. 1 Peter 2:2-3 NIV
I'll be the first to admit that I am at the point in my spiritual life where I can study a book of the Bible or a passage of scripture, but I find topical study very hard. I would love to be a part of a group that could meet once or twice a month (or whatever) to take the chunks of meat we can't yet swallow and puree them a bit. Okay, so maybe that's a really bad continuation of the milk/meat analogy but you get my point.

Here are the facts as I see them:
I have questions.
I'm stuggling to find biblical answers on my own.
I need help.
Surely, I'm not alone.
I am going to email some friends and see who might be interested in something like this. I hope I get some takers.

God is so Good

God is so good, ya know? Just when things seemed so overwhelming to me, He gives me a verse, just for me. I can't even remember now where I first heard it but it has defined me for the past few months and has lead me here. To this blog. To this place where I can write out how good He is.

Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)

18 "Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.

19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."

This blog is for me. Not to sound selfish but I need a place to think. Away from the hubbub of my often crazy, much too busy life. This is my place. And every day I want a new thing. I want Jesus to come and bring me something new every single day. I want to love Him more, know Him more, and walk closer to His side every single day. This blog is my place to record my journey. If it blesses you along the way, then to Him be the glory, great things He has done!
