The joy of the Lord is my strength. I asked and have received! I have been blessed to be a part of a wonderful ministry of women that come together to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. I have slow poked in presenting this picture but it’s here. It means a lot to me for my life is aimed to always be at the feet of Jesus.
It’s amazing what can be done when you seek the Lord for the desires of your heart, but more to seek the things that He wants. His path and his ways are always greater than our own.
Little did I know how quickly the Lord would give not only me, but a group of women the desire to get together to bond and do whatever it is that He asks of us. Oh boy do I have a stories!
When Jesus fills your heart, you lose sight of where you are! It’s not to make a public spectacle but we gave permission for the Holy Spirit to be present. To take over and fill us. What a great time of sharing, breaking down walls and building one another up through our individual gifting. Each person had something to offer. To our surprise it collectively came together and knitted so well as if it already existed!
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV)
Some of us knew each other because of the workplace, some only through a mutual person and then there were those who didn’t know any of us at all. ( overhearing and word of mouth wanting to become part of something that sounded so wonderful)
Within two hours we went from shaking hands when we met to hugging, praying and crying in the parking lot!
Sisterhood. Kindred spirits. Growth. Prayer. Fellowship. Love. Learning.
Jesus Jesus Jesus how excellent is Thy Name!!!
With the help of my husband, I am happy with the outcome of this template!
It may not seem like much but I know that the Lord has given me a vision and I’m running with it!
Just thought I would share my creativity with you. Tomorrow I look forward to meeting with my sisters in the Lord. We are doing a Prayer Walk /hiking. I love the great outdoors!
May there be a great abundance of love in the air, songs of praises and lifted voices as well as quiet meditation as we seek His presence in the middle of his great creations walking alongside streams and mossy ground coverings, climbing hills and standing in adoration of the works of His hands!
This will be an adventure I am looking forward to. It’s the first time any of my sisters have gone hiking and too many to count for myself as this is a typical Saturday morning time that my family and I go out and enjoy.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. (Psalm 37:4, 5 KJV)
“Thank you Lord for bringing this union together that your name will be lifted up and glorified. May our light shine from the hilltops to the valleys below drawing all men unto you. Have your way in us and may we be about your business always. Amen.”

Looking forward to the new things that the Lord places before me. It’s all about edification. May my thoughts and actions always be aligned to His.
That’s my girl!

How blessed I feel to receive such exhorting words from you Shenine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We had an awesome time yesterday. I am still filled with joy. God blows my mind every time! Praises to Him!
May the Lord richly bless you and the other women in this ministry! May it serve Him and draw each of you deeper into His heart. I am so excited and happy to see you moving with the Lord!! It is a beautiful thing 🙂
Love in Christ,
I thank you so much for encouraging me from day one! Your prayers sink deep and I receive! How I wish you and some of my other sisters could have been there! Words simply cannot describe the presence of the Lord there with us. To capture the beauty of His creations and embrace the power of prayer along the way. And towards the way back, 2 deer came out of nowhere and just stood no further than about 25 feet from us! They just stared!! I did not get a chance to take their pic but the memory is imprinted in my heart and mind. How can people not believe there is a living God?!!
He is alive and real as EVER!! Hallelujah!! Thank you for the blessings and prayers for me and the ladies in the ministry!
Love you in Christ 🙂
( love your pic too! So pretty! )
