I'm diving in, I'm going deep, in over my head, I want to be
Caught in the rush, lost in the flow, in over my head, I want to go,
The river's deep, the river's wide, the river's water is alive
So sink or swim, I'm diving in

These are the lyrics from one of my all time favorite Steven Curtis Chapman songs.  When I hear the word "dive" this is the first thing that comes to mind, complete with fast paced alive music.

To dive, it has so many different meanings.

We just started Beth Moore's study, Living Beyond Yourself, which if that isn't an appropriate song for this study I don't know what is!

I've done, I think 6 of her studies and I've never finished a single one.  Oh, I've gone to all the sessions, but I think the furthest I've ever gotten in the homework was the year I was co-leader and we did it in Spanish.  Because I was helping lead and we had 3 weeks for each lesson I got almost to the end.  We, as a group, actually didn't finish the study in the school year time we had before I moved.  But it was probably also the best study because we spent so much time together as a group, discussing it and learning from each other.  (and yes, I was quite glad my roommate was doing the English version so I could borrow her book when I was having particular trouble understanding something!)

This time we're doing a 10 week session in 20 and I intend to finish.  I say this every time, but this time I know, I NEED to finish.  I need something different in my life and if the Fruit of the Spirit isn't it, then I don't know what is!

So ask me how I'm doing, those of you who know me, I might need a little help too!

This word was from 5 Minute Friday and obviously it's not Friday anymore, but when I saw the topic (yesterday) it's been running around in my head and I wanted to get it written down before I forgot.
