To say I was nervous would be an understatement. I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I have never attended a bible study before and I had no idea what was going to happen or how to behave. Worse, I didn't know if I was going to like it and want to come back.
All this stress made me want to give up on the whole idea completely. However, I mustered up the courage and I went. It went great and can't wait to make it part of my regular life and routine.
We didn't just talk about God, we also talked about life. One point really made an impression on me. We talked about how going through your twenties is like going through the wilderness sometimes.
This is a complicated time in our lives. We are figuring out careers, friendships and love all at the same time. It can be a little overwhelming sometimes, like the wilderness.
For me, my wilderness is allowing myself to be open to new opportunities like going on dates and attending this bible study. They are all things I want, but sometimes it's scary to go after what you want. I am deathly afraid of rejection, so sometimes I avoid situations all together. However, I have learned that behavior only hurts me in the long run and I'm trying to correct that.
We are all going through the wilderness, no matter what our religious views are. Even though we might get bruised and knocked down sometimes, we will all make it through with a little guts and faith.
