Some of you may have started to believe that we fell off the earth, or have hung up our work and passion for women to know their Savior more each day. Neither could be further from the truth.
2013 started off with a team retreat for us, and a definite surprise. God was leading us to a new definition of what the team would look like. We weren’t sure we liked it, but we are thankful looking back that we were hearing His voice and truly listened and followed His lead. It has been a year of highs and lows for us all I am sure, but for us, we were, for the first time in a while, doing it separately more than as a team. He had called some of us to be quiet, some to lead out on our own, and some to prepare for a battle we had no idea was coming, but we were not given a release to hold a Ps51 conference or ministry event. All year.
What we had been was ENTRUSTED to follow Him. Entrusted to walk where He led, even in face of fear and heartache. Entrusted to walk into place He was leading we would not understand. Entrusted not to leave our first love through it all! Praise God for His keeping power and faithfulness to His precious daughters! What have you been ENTRUSTED WITH?
“I know your deeds…and you have perseverance and endured for my name’s sake, and have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” Rev. 2:2-4
Entrusted not to leave our first love through it all.
Here are some of the things we were entrusted with this year:
2 of us battled cancer
3 of us are the Women’s Ministry leaders at our church
2 of us had full care of aging and broken Mothers
3 of us battled long term illnesses/sickness
1 was inducted onto the Bd of Directors of Wise Hope
1 was inducted onto the Bd of Directors of Wise Choices
2 were called to lead youth in their church
1 had full care of grandchildren
2 of us were called to major career changes
3 were called to hold down the homes while our husbands work out of town
1 was called travel speaking for ProLife
All were entrusted to keep ministering to others in all things.
THE REST OF THE STORY:
He is never done and always faithful!
His plans are never without purpose, and His heart always for growing us closer to Him. We are well aware of all we have been through this year, and humbled that He entrusted us to walk through it, knowing now some of the purpose behind it.
He has called us back together, reignited the purpose in us to go out and spread His love to others as a team again. You see, through the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, NO MATTER WHAT WE ARE DOING OUR FIRST LOVE IS TO BE OUR FIRST LOVE! Once He gets that established within us, He can begin using us in a new way. It’s all about Him, not us, He deserves all the praise. Due to His all-sufficient grace we are but ENTRUSTED.
Many of you have been entrusted with battles, or blessings. Do not allow the situations to become your first love.
Worship the Creator of Life, not the life that’s been created. Life will change. The Creator of Life never will.
So, as we enter 2014, what will we all be entrusted with this year?
We love you all, and are blessed to be able to serve our Savior alongside so many of you.
Thank you for your heart and sharing it with us!
