We seek to serve women with love and grace. We prayerfully seek to glorify God by offering events and activities for our church and community that are biblically-focused and address the spiritual needs of women, support missions, and promote fellowship, thereby encouraging and strengthening each woman’s relationship with Jesus Christ. Through prayer, God’s word, and the power of the Holy Spirit, we desire to create a fellowship of women that serve others with compassion and love each other with a spirit of grace and forgiveness. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10

“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as [it is] this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18 (KJV)
Just as we’re tempted to think God has forgotten about us when hard times come, so we tend to forget God when times are easy. As difficult as keeping our faith during times of poverty and suffering might be, keeping our faith can often be more difficult during times of plenty. On the surface, the power of money can replace the power of faith. The power of money can replace or buy off the worries ordinary people carry about food, shelter, paying the bills, and having security for the future. However, there comes with the power of money and wealth, the risk of consuming emptiness.
The writings in this journal are meant to be for the ones that I love. Each one will be from my heart. Because of my relationship with God and to bless those who will read them. May God through His Holy Spirit, which dwells within me say the things to others that I have not been able to share with my lips.
“It is time to put away childish things. It’s time to give of yourself to others. It is time to let the Holy Spirit that lives inside us reach out and bless others. As we give to others, it will be given to us from God. Stop seeking His blessings for yourself and give blessings to others by giving of yourself. Then the blessings you have been seeking will automatically be yours.”
But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.” Psalm 68:3
God calls us all to contentment. A definition of contentment is “being happy.” Do you ever struggle with being happy? Perhaps there is a big problem or heartache that is constantly weighing on your mind. You may think that once your problem is solved, then you’d be able to be happy. This is a work that begins within ourselves. Being happy can be hard work sometimes, it’s like maintaining a nice home, you need to hang on to your treasures and throw out the garbage. Being happy requires looking for the good in things. One person sees the beautiful view from their window and the other see’s the dirty window. Happiness is always an external indication of internal contentment.
“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, “that you may be sons of your Father in heaven;” Matthew 5:44-47 (NKJV)
Have you ever had a friend or acquaintance who made a wrong choice for every right choice you made, yet in the end your friend seemed to face none of the consequences you faced? It’s hard to take, watching someone come out smelling like roses when you know the dirt they’ve been rooted in. It’s tough to just do what’s asked of you and leave the fairness issue to God. It’s hard to see people receive good things when they’ve caused you nothing but grief. It’s even harder to wish them good fortune. Jesus said to love our enemies, but when it comes right down to it, we’d rather not.
