Greetings, my friends, in the name of Jesus!
I am writing today with a heart that has been enduring. An enduring heart because I believe and trust in Christ. I know that whatever struggles of every kind -sickness, financial, marital, psychological and even biological, we meet, we must learn how to exchange them with God. When we exchange our burdens with God, we are getting rid of our pride, shame and fear. We are set free, we are delivered by the blood of the Lamb. I do not know if you are experiencing the same thing as I am, but it just seems lately that women are really being tried by the devil. However, the Lord wants me to tell you that He is a Deliverer, He will set you free from all bondage and shame. Ephesians 3:20, "With God's power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask for or imagine."
My friends, I have a "birthing" within me that has been churning, that has been turning, that has been swirling and I cannot wait to see how God will use me or for what He will use me. I just thank God for His mercy and His grace, for His divine intervention in my life and in the lives of the women around me. I don't know when, where or how, but I know that God is getting ready to use me mightily and for that I want to thank the Lord in advance.
Dr. Ellen Mormon of Asbury Seminary encouraged us as women that we should provide encouragement, commitment, time and energy to other women, to those less fortunate than us, to those who are struggling in their spiritual life; to those who are trying to get out of abusive relationships. My friends, we read about numerous women in the Bible who had uncompromising faith; those who helped other women. There were the prophetess, Anna (she fasted, she prayed, she was always preaching and talking about Jesus); Mary and Martha (the two sisters who loved Jesus, they invited other women to their house to listen to Christ teach); Lois and Eunice (Timothy's Mom and Grandmother, two women who loved the Lord and had undeniable faith); Huldah the prophetess, who helped people to understand what the Bible means); Elizabeth and Mary (these two women encouraged each other during their time of pregnancies).
Rev. Maxine Thomas, in her Bible study, a Series of Fortunate Events, said that as women we must look for a sister to encourage and inspire because as women, we need to encourage one another. Rev. Thomas said that as women when we get "pregnant" in the Spirit, no one can take away that pregnancy so we must not feel or act threatened by other women, but instead we must reach out to them. We must stop neglecting and failing to accept another sister's divinity.
My friends,I am praying for my exodus, I am praying for your exodus, I am praying for our exodus. Exodus, taught Rev. Tina Findley, is a season of exchange. A season where women can exchange all the bad into something good.
I SHOULD GET OUT
I CAN GET OUT
I WILL GET OUT
My friends, you can lean on me. The Bible shows us how young Timothy leaned on Paul for guidance, mentoring, and help as he carried out the Lord's will.
