Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

I know many of you may feel especially challenged today because of things you are dealing with in your life and ministry. I want to encourage you and remind you that God loves you so much.

Philippians 1:6, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

At times we might feel that we are not making progress in our spiritual life but when God begins a project, he completes it! God walks with us each day and is always there to encourage us and cheer us on when life seems to look everything but exciting!! Remember that God will never give up on you!

If you feel incomplete this morning, unfinished or discouraged by your shortcomings, remember God's awesome promise and provision! Don't allow your present condition to rob you of the joy of knowing Christ more intimately and growing closer to him. His plan for your life is magnificent!!

Have a wonderful day friends! You are beautiful women of God and are making a difference for the Kingdom. You are appreciated and loved!!

Is Your Ministry Hindered By Intimidation?

Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

For me, Monday is far more difficult to roll out of bed than any other day of the week! I am usually exhausted from the weekend and a full day of events on Sunday. My motivation when the alarm begins to "buzz' at 5am seriously needs some help! I hear Starbucks calling my name!

Do you ever feel weary in the ministry? Have you ever questioned God about how you can really make any difference in the Kingdom of God? Are you intimidated by others when you attempt to stand strong for what you believe?

God has a plan for you and that plan is huge. He tells us in His Word that we are to be imitators of Christ. That tells me that others need to see Jesus in me even when I am tired,weary and basically worn out! We may be the only billboard for the Kingdom of God that someone may see.

All of us can make a positive difference for Christ. I feel such an urgency in my heart for those who are unsaved. People need to know that God loves them and He is returning soon for His church. Christians need to continue being "busy" about God's business. People are searching for hope in a desperate and lost world. God offers that hope and peace to those who surrender their lives to Him.

Preaching truth in church today is not popular. Those pastor's are often labeled "old fashioned and not relevant". Well friend, when the trumpet sounds, who really cares about being relevant. I just want to know that I know that I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that I am washed in the blood of the lamb and on my way to heaven! How about you? Do you dare to make a difference in this world?

Love and appreciate you,

Good Morning Girlfriends!

This is the day that the Lord hath made.  I will REJOICE and be glad in it!!!!! 

I know for many it is challenging to rejoice this morning because of everything happening around you in your ministry and life.  Just remember today that God is still on the throne and is as powerful as He was yesterday and will still reign tomorrow!  He loves you and cares about every detail of your life including the discouragement and disappointments you may be dealing with today.

Just want to encourage you this morning with a simple thought.  No matter what you are walking through at this moment, God will help you be a positive influence in a negative situation. Be encouraged – what you have to offer is the life of Jesus, not your own expertise.  Encouragement cannot harm people – a loving word from you will always help somehow, if even a little, if only for a moment. As ministry wives and ministry women, our skills and callings are varied, but we can be unceasing encourager's.  We are greatly needed!

I am praying for you today that God’s power and presence will be overwhelming in your services.  You are amazing women of God!

Love and appreciate you!
