As we travel this road of life, we soon discover that it will not be a smooth ride.
It seems so many struggle to find their own identity in life and at the same time feel the need to be everything to everyone.
We enjoy the smooth roads in life, but it is a SURE thing that up ahead, we will encounter stretches of road filled with trials. It is on these trying roads that we are refined, shaped & strengthened.
In a world filled with anxiety and fear how do we cope?
Where do we find comfort and calm?
We long for a rest area, an escape from our present journey.
You may feel there is NO place where you can run to escape the rough road, but there IS a person who can encourage you on.
- She is the genuine friend waiting to help in any way she can with words of encouragement and prayer.
- She is a confidant, she is a pillar for you, she is a genuine friend.
Where is she?
She is out there. Waiting to meet you.
She is a genuine sister in Christ.
The bible speaks so often of "certain women" who followed Christ and served. Together these women shared their thoughts and what they heard Him speak. They were devoted to each other as a sister in Christ - a special bond lasting for eternity.
So who is this genuine sister in Faith?
- She is your "encourager" along the road in life.
- She is a "genuine" friend and one who wants what Christ desires for you.
- She has given her life to Christ and seeks to encourage others as His servant.
- You hurt, she hurts.
- You are blessed, she is blessed.
- You have a need, she will try to fulfill it.
- You need prayer and comfort, she is there willingly.
- You are not on a list of names to call - your name is written in her heart.
- She does not wait for you to ask - she sees the need
- She understands your heart when you cannot find the words
- She is an eternal friend
How would I describe a sister in Christ?
She is a genuine friend for eternity as you are both a part of the family of God.
She is a spiritually mature woman who can
offer support & prayer.
She has a sincere desire to reach out to one
who is hurting.
She has the love of Jesus within and it shows.
She is a listener, an encourager, a prayer
warrior and can be trusted in confidence.
She will tell you the truth, even when
it may not be what you want to hear.
She is always there for your, whether you live
close by or at either ends of the world.
She is always praying for you.
Yes, we all need a genuine sister in Christ.
And... we all should desire to be one to someone else.
I hope you will come by often and read the "M" Words blog
along with the inspirational posts on the "Thoughts" & "Daily Prayer" page.
May you find answers and comfort here.
Are you His?
Are you a genuine woman of faith?
Let's clear up that uncertainty.
Forget about "religion." Religion is worthless.
It's all about faith. . .
faith in a personal relationship with Jesus.
God gives us all free will.
With that comes the choice to believe
in Jesus, the One Who gave Himself for your ugly sins -
yes, we all are sinful and need Him to cleanse us
- to humbly submit our life to Him.
We can never be good enough, give enough money or
do any amount of good things to be good enough to
deserve a heavenly home. Our sin leaves us filthy
as a dirty rag and only Jesus can cleanse us.
Put your concerns, fears and uncertainty aside.
Let Jesus make you a new woman- believe me,
your life will never be the same!
In genuine sincerity, you can talk with Christ.
God does not promise health, wealth, or ease.
God has promised to transform us from the inside out.
HE is intensely interested in the person we are becoming.
Circumstances may not change,
but our transformed life will find hope & comfort.
Becoming a child of God is just the beginning.
As His, you will see changes.
You will be as clay in HIS hands,
molded and shaped into the woman of
faith He desires!
