Welcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. This is what has inspired me to do an online Bible study.

Many years ago my husband introduced me to a commentary on the book of Colossians and I was so blessed as the Scripture came to life before my very eyes. Since that day we have developed an extensive library and enjoy studying God's Word.

I have prepared some Bible studies that I would like to share with you. My prayer is that they will bless you as much as they have blessed me in preparing them. I pray your life is touched and that it would inspire you to live every moment of every day for Christ.

Joy in our Darkest Time

During our darkest times, we can find joy and peace in God's presence! We see this in Paul and Silas as they were stripped, beaten, and placed in stocks in the inner cell of prison, yet listen to what is said of them in Acts 16:25 'About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them'.

Can you imagine, despite this dismal situation, they praised God, praying and singing as the other prisoners listened. My friend, despite the horrific circumstances we are in, we can experience joy and peace as Paul and Silas did. It is as we focus on God and not our circumstances that real peace and joy fills our soul and sheds light in the darkest of times. Whatever you are going through today, know that God is with you! Focus on Him ... Draw your strength from Him ... Trust God for the outcome!
