Again I am so blessed and encouraged by the women who share their hearts and stories with me. I want to share two with you:
From LouAnn, a Woman on the Wall within Women in the Word (that's a tongue twister!):
God has provided us with His Word that enables us to do what we might think is impossible. What a gracious, loving Father we have. Our time together is such a blessing. May God's presence be real to you in unbelievable ways as we serve Him.
From Jenny, a Servant Leader within Women in the Word:
The past week of study was very meaningful for me. God really revealed to me how discontent I am with so many roles I have right now. I don't complain out loud, but good grief has He been hearing an earful (since He hears my silent murmurings)! Leaves me at a place of total surrender today. Because in my own power, I CANNOT change my heart. I've tried. I know God's working like this in many lives and just wanted to encourage you today by letting you know what He's been doing with me.
Words cannot express how in awe I am of our Lord!! I find my mind and heart full of His goodness and constant examples of Him working in me and those around me. I frequently smile and shake my head at His amazing provisions. May we all have praise on our lips today as we accept with thanksgiving our assigned portion, walk the line that He has marked out for us and sacrifice our hearts to Him.
Living in the Shadow of His Forgiveness, Joanne
