As always, I thank God for each of you and pray that you are growing in the Lord. I pray that you are being fed the Word of God and are seeking Him with all of your heart and soul. God bless you.
There are at least 220 women that are in the devotional group on my facebook, (Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry). I have been sending daily messages to 220 women daily. I have been praying for 220 women daily. I have been calling out each name that I have written down and pray on a consistent basis. I realize that not everyone reads them, but I have not gotten a release from God to let anyone go just yet. I care for each of you whether you know it or not. I have had the opportunity to personally pray for some of you and it has been a blessing to me and I pray that you have also been blessed. The reason why I am writing this is not to glorify me but to let you know that God has not told me to stop praying for either of you. I am happy about that.
God knows where each of you are in your spiritual journey, each of you, all 220 women. Some of you are babes in Christ and some of you are more mature in Christ. God doesn't care where you are, He just wants you to stay lifted up and know that He is God. Nothing is too hard for God. Some of you in ministry have the desire to have a closer relationship with God, but are just a little stuck. Some of you need to start to have a prayer life, but don't know how to begin. Some of you have made promises that you will start to attend church more often, but everytime you do, something always comes up. Some of you have got it down pack, but need confirmation from God. Boy, if some of you knew what I really been through in my journey to Christ, you would have more faith in yourself. Not that I have arrived either, but I strive towards perfection daily. Some of you have so much faith in God, but not enough faith in yourself.
Sometimes I looked out my bedroom window, and can't believe that I am here. Just here, I should have been dead, if the enemy had his way, but God said no. I struggle just like everyone else, but I realize that my struggles are my struggles. I thank God for them (sometimes). At other times, I think that I can't make it one more step and low and behold I made it one more step. Drugs tried to kill me. Abusive spouse tried to kill me. Addictions tried to steal my peace of mind. These are some heavy shoes sometimes, but I have lived in them. This ministry is to let you know that I'm still here. Whatever you are going through or have been through, the word through means you are going to come out.
I love the Lord so much, that I will continue to pray for each of you in the ministry. Because of God's love for you, I love you too. I love to do what God wants me to do. It is not always that I am obedient (I'm human), but I give it my all, when it comes peoples souls. God has plans for each of you 220, each of you, know matter where you are in Him. He will continue to hear my prayers for you and deliver you unto Him. No, I'm not all that, but I know who I am in Christ and sometimes you have to be bold, to remind yourself who you are. There is never a doubt in my mind that God not only listens to my prayers but they are answers. Know who you are in Christ and you can come boldly to the thrown of grace, those are Gods words, not mine.
MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU IN ALL OF YOUR ENDEAVORS AS YOU DRAW NIGH TO HIM, HE WILL DRAW NEARER TO YOU. I PRAY THAT YOU KEEP STRIVING TOWARDS PERFECTION AND NOT LET THE ENEMY WEAR YOU DOWN. PEACE BE UNTO YOU ALL.
