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.

Strength through struggles

The struggles we go through are for a specific purpose and the story of the flight of the butterfly is a wonderful example of this.

The story talks about how a man found a butterfly cocoon and watched as the butterfly struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole. The man decided to help this little butterfly by snipping off the remaining bits of the cocoon. The butterfly emerged easily but it had a swollen body and shriveled wings and was not able to fly. The man thought he was helping the butterfly, but what he didn't understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required by the butterfly to get through the opening of the cocoon was a way of forcing the fluid from the body into the wings so that it would be ready for flight once that was achieved.

My friend, sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. Going through life with no obstacles would cripple us and we would not be as strong as we could have been and we would never fly. Let us keep our focus on God and trust Him through the struggles of life. We are not alone, God never leaves; He never stops loving; and He never lets go.
