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?
That is what we are doing in WIGS this year. Reaching out to you to encourage you to do whatever service that God has given you. We are here to help you. Chances are we’ve done it before and would love to help you. We have visited the sick, fed the hungry, reached out to the homeless and cared for the children and widows. We have helped in our churches, sent cards, served in nursing homes and comforted the bereaved. Take our hand in Service so we can share together in the victories that God gives us. When you take someone’s hand, it is a sign on bonding together for one common purpose. We will pray with you, help you, encourage you, train you, comfort you in whatever way that we can to build a strong bond of Christian women who are working together to serve the lost and dying world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through serve to them
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
That scripture describes WIGS. We are all in one accord (and it isn’t a Honda (joke)), working together like minded for the same purpose. Together, the energy from two equals three! We can accomplish so much more working together than we can ever accomplish singularly. That’s the beauty of women bonded together with a mission. Getting the job done!
It’s not about getting praise or recognition for what has been done. We are told not to be filled with pride in the scriptures. We are not to be like the man who stored up all the riches and sat back saying look what “I” have done. Jesus called him a fool!
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
We are not to keep all that God has given us for ourselves, but we are supposed to share what we have with others. Take my hand in service and together we can change the world, one service at a time. Please write and share what you are doing with us. Happy Valentine’s Day.
