A Yellow Watering Can

Sometimes, faithfully nurturing relationships with the people God has entrusted specifically to our care gets mundane. The seemingly menial task of filling a can with water and taking it to each plant regularly is vital to healthy growth. If we do not intentionally water and edify, relationships begin to wilt.

Our lives as Christian women can be compared to a watering can – a vessel filled with the Holy Spirit, pouring out the Water of the Word to encourage growth and speak life to others.

Soul Comforts

“In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.” -Psalm 94:19 This morning, I awoke with a “multitude of MY thoughts.” Picture a whirlwind, swirling many thoughts of the day ahead, thoughts of burdens of those I love, thoughts of my own insufficiency, thoughts of special events planned, etc… Before my Read More

No Shortcuts to Friendship

There are no shortcuts to friendship… with God or with others. “No shortcut exists. God has not bowed to our nervous haste nor embraced the methods of our machine age. It is well that we accept the hard truth now: The man who would know God must give time to Him. He must count no time wasted which is spent in the cultivation of His acquaintance.

Your Vocation

“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” -Ephesians 4:1-3
Ephesians 4.1-3 What is your vocation? In the Strong’s Concordance, the word “vocation” is defined as an “invitation” or a “calling.” In essence, the Lord asks us, “Would you do this job for me?” Marriage, singleness, secular work, ministry work, motherhood, infertility, sisterhood, etc. are some of our respective callings as women. These callings or invitations are from whom?

Labour of Love

 In my church family, I have observed the work and labour of love of several ladies recently. Each lady has her own ministry gifts to share and her own style of sharing her gifts. How beautiful is the bride ~ the church ~ when she ministers in the ways God has gifted her to do so – doing her own part. There is no cause for one to envy the gift of another or the opportunity of another, for one’s own gift is the best gift – fitted for the Master’s use. What a joy when the church body works together and ministers to each other!

Grapefruit Soup | Heart Matters

Sometimes, grapefruits are extremely sour, and sometimes they are sweet. You cannot know for sure until you cut it open and taste it. I was prepared to add a sprinkle of sugar, but there was no need because it was sweet. Only the Lord knows the inside contents of a grapefruit, and only the Lord knows the inside contents of our hearts.
