14 Days of Valentines Gifts

It is almost that time of year again. Time to start planning!

What a fun way to spread the love for the 
14 days of February leading up to Valentine's Day!

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.      (1 Corinthians 13: 6-7)

It's About Time ~Women's Ministry Kick-Off Theme

The first part of this year I started a new job on staff at Concord Baptist Church as the Women's Ministry Director.  I am having a ball! God is teaching me and growing me in His grace and glory. Being in the center of God's will is the greatest place to be. I know God has been preparing me for this position all of my life. It has been one more step in my Christian growth to learn to depend on my Lord even more. I have no answers to any of life's issues but I have a God who holds all of life in His hands. With a very humble heart, I can say I am truly blessed and so very thankful. 

We started the year off with a kick-off as the ~Women of Concord.  As you can see we had a wonderful crowd. We decorated with clocks all shapes and sizes.  We used black tablecloths and winter white trees with twinkling lights. It was a very sweet time and the best part was that the Lord showed up. 
 It's About Time: to belong, to be encouraged, to be inspired and to be part of the Women's Ministry in the New Year. We had wonderful food and fellowship and lots of great music. I spoke on joining together as the women of God to further the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is women reaching women, encouraging each other, loving each other and building relationships as taught in the Bible as Titus women. I am so thrilled that I get to do life with these women. I know God is going to do great things as we serve our Lord and Saviour together. 

Ephesians 3:20-21 (KJV)

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Take Your Eyes Off The Problem

Happy New Year! It's a blank new page. What are you going to do with it? God has been working me over about my independence. I struggle with "I" gotta do this and "I" can do this. Yet~ God really wants "I" to step aside and let HIM. He wants me to lay down my independence and totally depend upon HIM. To stop trying to fix things and lay them at His feet. He wants me to stop running in my own strength and rest in Him. He wants me to stop being fearful and trust Him to handle life's challenges.

Every season in life has new challenges and unanswered questions. When the kids were little I was concerned where to send them to school and how to keep them safe from the evils of this world. When they grew I worried about their salvation and how to reach their heart for Jesus. Then I worried how they would make a living and who they would marry. I am only as happy as my saddest child. Yet~ they have the same God that I have and they can find the answers they need in Him just as their momma has learned to do.  I pray that they will learn to depend on Him for everything in life.

I  tell God often it would help me so much  if He would just write out His plan for me to follow.  He
is God and His ways are best. He left His Holy Spirit to dwell in me, to lead me and guide me.  He promises to walk and talk with me. He promises to never leave me or forsake me. He has all the power in the world.

My New Year's Focus is to take my eyes off the problem, off the storms of life, off the people, off the circumstances~ OFF the waves and ON JESUS!

John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me.

Happy New Year ~ may we all learn to take our focus off the problem and on Jesus. He can be trusted.
