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.

Storm Watcher or Snowbird

Some people spend their time running from storms. They continually move just prior to the weather turning bad; always trying to be in the Sun Belt Region. They are known as Snowbirds.

The problem is, many Christians are the same way, always trying to escape the storms of life, when in reality we should be embracing the storms. You see, it is through the storms of life that we grow the strongest. For example, when the storm winds blow, the trees dig their roots down in deep to keep from falling over; the more storms that hit, the stronger the tree is. When the storms of life hit us, we need to dig deep into the Word of God where we will gain our strength from God. ~ Philippians 4:13 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.'

My friend, don't be a snowbird, become a storm watcher and embrace the storms in your life. James 1:2-3 'Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.'

Imagine a life that is always sunny - always easy going... It would really make us weak Christians because we would have no need to dig deep. We can embrace the storms of life because we know the one who will carry us through and Never leave us; the one who will give us the strength to face each day.
