I am excited to announce I will be speaking tonight at the annual ladies banquet for Kingdom Impact, a local church in my area. With that said, I have been dialoguing with the Holy Spirit about what the Lord has for tonight’s event. I am not going to give it away, but this photo you see here is part of my inspiration.
What do you see?
I see a story of two mothers, Eve and Mary. I don’t know if you ever thought about this, but loss was a part of their stories too. These mother’s lost sons. But, both were given an assignment. Both surrendered to it. Both were honored for their sacrifice. Have you ever wondered what we have in common? We too are mothers born to carry light bearers. To grow them. To care for them. To share with them. To impart our hearts to them. For, we were once them.
I want to honor the Women today!!
You are powerful and you are of utmost importance to the Father, for without you new life can never be. Destiny is built into the woman, you see. She was made to carry life—sometimes with a heartbeat, sometimes with a message, sometimes with her art—but no matter what it is, when she does it with her whole heart, it’s always going to create something beautifully unique.
Women are bosses, business owners, home managers, painters, meal-time creators, grocery shoppers, gatherers, mentors, nurturers, lovers, preachers, mechanics, doctors, engineers, researchers. I could go on and on, but I hope you see the picture. When women put their mind to something, it’s going to get figured out and made better. Women have purpose to innovative.
In a world that is working very hard to be divisive and to pit people against each other, we as Daughters of the King have to walk a little differently. We don’t walk with a freight, we walk in His delight. We don’t walk consumed by worry, for we walk covered by His glory. We see the world, but know we can go to the Father above for an eternal line to keep us walking in His ever-present light. There are so many things we have the ability to do to help carry us through this every changing world we find ourselves in. So many things pull at our time. Our kids. Our husbands. Our jobs. Our extended families. Our hobbies. Our volunteer work in the communities. Even our churches. And ladies, I thank you for your services in all of these areas. It’s honorable and most days you never get a thank you for doing any of it.
SO, THANK YOU!!
The Father above is watching and smiling with delight, for every time a woman connects to herself, it’s truly spiritual and beautiful things comes forth.
You make beautiful things, ladies. You are a beautiful creation. This reminds me of a passage in Psalms:
“Lord, you know everything there is to know about me. You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind. You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book and you know all the words I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step I will take before my journey even begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. You have laid your hand on me! This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength. Where could I go from your Spirit? Where could I run and hide from your face? If I go up to heaven, you’re there! If I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too! If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there! If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting! Wherever I go, your hand will guide me; your strength will empower me. It’s impossible to disappear from you or to ask the darkness to hide me, for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night. There is no such thing as darkness with you. The night, to you, is as bright as the day; there’s no difference between the two. You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord! You even formed every bone in my body when you created me in the secret place; carefully, skillfully you shaped me from nothing to something. You saw who you created me to be before I became me! Before I’d ever seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for me were already recorded in your book. Every single moment you are thinking of me! How precious and wonderful to consider that you cherish me constantly in your every thought! O God, your desires toward me are more than the grains of sand on every shore! When I awake each morning, you’re still with me. O God, come and slay these bloodthirsty, murderous men! For I cry out, ‘Depart from me, you wicked ones!’ See how they blaspheme your sacred name and lift up themselves against you, but all in vain! Lord, can’t you see how I despise those who despise you? For I grieve when I see them rise up against you. I have nothing but complete hatred and disgust for them. Your enemies shall be my enemies! God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting way—the path that brings me back to you.”
Psalms 139:1-24 TPT
This last verse says it all. See if there is any path to your glorious, everlasting way—the path that brings me back to you.
What a verse!! This passage will change you!! The more you read it, the more you start to believe it. It’s not just words. These are spirit penetrating, life invigorating living words.
The Father is intimately in love with your being. He created you and marvels in your abilities to keep your world together and moving forward.
SO, BRAVO LADIES!!
I will leave you with this picture which says, “We can’t become what we want to be by remaining what we are.”
Ladies, the Lord has more for the woman in this hour to partner with Him and co-create.
SO, CREATE!! KEEP GOING!! HE LOVES YOU!! THANK YOU FOR FIGHTING FOR YOUR FAMILIES WELL-BEING. WE ARE WARRIORS. AND, THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH IS LISTENING!!
Until next time,
