Here it is March already and spring is around the corner. We had a mild winter here in Alabama, but those of you who live in the Northern part of our country had quite a winter! I pray that you took time in February (the month of love) to fall back in love the Savior. I have been writing a book for my family for the past three years. It is my Legacy to them. I am working on the final chapter and have been praying about what I want them to know to be successful in their lives. I have come up with seven components that I pray they will find as important as I have. We are going to be talking a lot about them in the coming months. They are listed in order of importance to me and are:
Greetings to you once again. I trust that you are busy in your service to others, but I would like to take a few minutes of your time to ponder WIGS overarching theme for 2019. It is “Take my hand”. Take my hand is Service, in Spiritual growth and in Leadership. If I said to you” Take my hand”, would you reach out to me?
February is the month of love. Valentine’s Day is always a rush of flowers, candy and roses. Then there are Valentine’s cards and teddy bears to exchange with those we love. Our overarching theme of WIGS for 2019 is “Take my hand”. WIGS is offering to “take you hand” in any way that you need or want us to do. I propose that we join hands together fall in love with the Savior all over again.
Are you ready to start 2019 serving others? WIGS is all about service. We ask each lady to perform a minimum of one service each month. That is such a small thing to do….just one! God has given us so much. We are a people of great wealth even if we don’t have extra money in our bank account or even have a bank account. He has given us:
If we only knew the power that is available to us through prayer, it would stagger most of our minds. The Scripture is full of accounts of God using human prayers to accomplish might miracles:
If our prayers aren’t answered like we wanted, then maybe we didn’t believe or maybe it just wasn’t in God’s plan. We must believe that he is able to do anything that we ask.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
There is power in the prayers of a righteous person. Pray, pray and then pray more!
I ASKED THE LORD TO GIVE ME A WORD THAT MIGHT HELP EACH OF US DURING THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON.
I KEPT THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT DANIEl, MY PASTOR, SAID SEVERAL YEARS AGO. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE BIRTH OF JESUS AND THE WISE MEN COMING TO SEE THE YOUNG CHILD (NOT A BABY BY THEN) AND HE MENTIONED MATTHEW 2:2
Do you know what the term” get into the short rows” means? It came from people who toiled in gardens that knew they were almost finished working when they got into the short rows in the fields. Well ladies, we are in the short rows to Christmas now! Only six more days of gifts for the Savior and we will come to His birthday!
I am so excited how God is using me to bless others and Him by these wonderful gifts that He has allowed me to give to my family, friends, neighbors and strangers
We finally come to the most widely form of prayer that we are familiar with. It is simply asking God to grant us our desires. We don’t usually have a problem asking God for anything and that’s what we should do….ask Him because He is ultimately the only one who can give us what we need or want.
Our prayer life is built on promises……God’s promises to us and our promises to Him. He shows us all through His Word that He is a promise keeper. Galatians 3:14
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
We are now heading toward December 25th at warp speed. I hope that you have been busy giving gifts to the Savior already. I am into planning the week from December 6th to December 12th. We don’t have much time left but there are still so many gifts that we can give Him.
