I can’t disappear. I come from a family of beautiful women, strong women – and ‘strong’ defined by being themselves. Mara Brock Akil
Dear Women of God!
God has created us to play an intricate role in the growth and success of our families, community and society M.T..
Women, made in God’s image just as man was, remain a pivotal and precious part of Jesus’ ministry even today. He beckons women everywhere to answer His call, to live out a great adventure walking in lock step with Him. Society doesn’t determine your worth. God sees you as His beautiful creation. You matter, regardless of your position in life. The Samaritan woman at the well must have thought Jesus was out of His mind when He started talking to her. He was Jewish. She wasn’t. Jewish people didn’t associate with Samaritans. But He did. And He took it one step further by revealing to her that He was the Son of God. That changed her life, and her testimony impacted the lives of Samaritans around her (John 4:1-42ESV)You were created for a purpose. Whether you broker business deals or negotiate with tiny tots, you are here for a reason. God has an adventure ahead of you that can have far-reaching implications if you’re gutsy enough to join Him and pursue it. Grace was meant for you, too. So you missed your flight or messed up that report at work. Or maybe forgot it was your turn to bring snacks for your child’s soccer game. You’re human. And Jesus loves you right where you are. Think about the woman who was brought to the temple, accused of adultery (John 8:10-11). Religious leaders said she should be stoned to death. Jesus eliminated the threat when He said, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” One by one, the crowd left until it was just the woman and Jesus. Where were her accusers? All gone. He told her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” Do not be afraid pursue God with all your heart!. You matter, your voice matter your wisdom is priceless. In order for the family to thrive you too must thrive and be all that God has called you to be. Then God said, “Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.” So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them (Genesis 1:26-27). “ Now the Lord God said, “It is not good (beneficial) for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [one who balances him—a counterpart who is] [i]suitable and complementary for him.” (Genesis 2:18). Women’s natural role is to be a pillar of the family- Grace Kelly
Forever in His Love.
