BSF Study Questions Acts Lesson 30: Lesson Review for Acts & Letters of the Apostles

Lesson 30 is all about what you learned from the study of Acts.

To be honest, I’m unsure. Sorry I can’t be more helpful than that.

My life (as have most of ours) has been consumed with the effects the coronavirus is having on our world and how it is impacting our lives. Right now, it’s about doing what I need to do to keep myself mentally, physically, and spiritually strong and to keep my family going as well. This has entailed a lot of prayer as my job and my husband’s pay has been cut. It’s about making it through till May where hopefully the world can go back to normal. It’s about praying that I don’t get furloughed and my husband doesn’t get laid off. It’s about surviving and enduring, to be honest.

In that respect, we’ve all got to experience a bit of what Paul went through with the challenges and battles he faced. It’s given us all a greater appreciation for our lives before the coronavirus. This will change us all for a while at least — and I’m unsure if it will be for the good.

Pray, trust, believe that God has got this.

God is much more powerful that a stupid, microscopic organism, which He is in control of.

Take every day as it comes; that’s all you can do.

Remember the beauty in this world. It will get you through.

End Note:

Next year, we head back to the Old Testament to the book of Genesis. I am unsure what I will do this summer. I truly cannot think that far ahead at this time.

  1. Hi Atoz,

    I know what you mean by the feeling of uncertainty that all of us have. I can see God bringing out something good out of all of it. Mostly learning to be grateful. We take so much for granted.

    Life is in a pause. Let’s remember this time for the rest of our lives. We have time to reflect on what really matters.

    My husband and I are in our 80’s. We are in complete isolation. Carl has a medium case of COPD and this virus would kill him.

    It is surreal and scary but God is in control. Knowing that keeps me calm.

    We will get through this.

    Love y’all,
    Lissette

  2. WHEN LIFE GOES ON PAUSE

    One never knows in our lifetimes what may be the cause
    But now out of nowhere our lives went on pause.
    We regaled 2020 with such fervor and hope
    But then out of nowhere came the inability to cope
    A virulent virus has wrecked havoc all over the globe,
    Showing no mercy for the young or the old.

    Not knowing what will come from day to day
    Makes us all wonder what price we must pay?
    Will it be our mother, our sister, our baby or brother
    A friend, a foe, a co-worker or other?

    In isolation hoping there is some reprieve,
    While families stay together, sometimes to grieve.
    However the upside during this pause,
    A time to be still and know there’s a God
    No matter what happens He is in control
    His love gives me peace, I will praise and extol.

    Daily we remember those on the front line
    Taking their chances to save many lives.
    Hour upon hour they work and see death
    Watching so many take their last breath.

    The sense that no one has an answer or cure
    What will it take to once more feel secure?
    We must stand together, yet six feet apart
    As we fight this devil, we must not lose heart.

    Let us not forget this time in our lives
    We’ll get through this chaos and we will survive,
    Stronger than ever with faith at our side.

    Be safe one and all for this will soon end
    Let’s pray and have hope that we see that curve bend.

  3. Thank you, ATOZMOM, for all your thoughtful postings. Your postings are my daily Bible study. Faith will carry us all through. Praying that non-believers become believers through this crisis.

  4. Thank you for your time devoted to sharing God’s word in this study. I really believe that these days are a test of everyone’s faith and a wake up call for all who do not usually look to God. Sadly, many still won’t heed the call to seek spiritual growth or prayer. I believe that the study of Acts teaches that at so many crossroads during St Paul’s travels there was evidence of the Holy Spirit providing guidance. I want to shout from the rooftops that people need to seek God and I want to hear leaders pray but now in these scary times I must accept I have no control of others. I am praying for the Holy Spirit to intervene in the lives of those who ignore God.
