A New Challenge

I don't know quite what God is up to, but He has brought another opportunity into my life. I have been asked by the leadership at our church to be the Women's Ministry Director. God has placed an ever growing love for women and their relationship with God in me ever since being in Little Rock and working with the best gals ever in our Sunday School class! Funny how when I look back on that time, I really wrestled with God each time I was supposed to meet with those women. Wrestled is a nice term that really means I argued with God! He kept telling me that I was supposed to be there and loving on those women, being available to them, and encouraging them in their stage of life at the time. He made this very clear to me each and every week!

So...after trying to be obedient back then, and giving me more situations over the ensuing years where I would work with women, He is now giving me this opportunity.

My prayer is two-fold:
1. That all I do would bring glory to the Lord!
2. That the women would feel loved, encouraged, and challenged in what God is calling them to.

I am humbled and excited at this new opportunity God has given to me...may I be weighed and not found wanting.
