Good Morning Ladies,
Every morning I receive TODAYS VERSE from Heartlight.org
When I read the one for today, it hit my heart BIG TIME.
We need to RAISE up women to TEACH and MENTOR other women. From young women to older women. There is such a huge calling for women to COME FORTH and TEACH.....Are you one of these women....
After reading this, if it ministers to your heart, please do the following:
SEEK GOD....Ask HIM if this is the Calling or Gift that he has given you to do.
SEEK GUIDANCE.....The Holy Spirit will be present. Talk to your Pastor or your Pastors wife about what it YOU want to do to MENTOR to women.
"Teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good."
"Teach...to teach!" we need faithful women in God's family to help show us the way to reverence God in our daily lives and to live with character. That means we need to teach these women they need to teach. We need to pray for them to step foward and be mentors. We must openly respect their reverent lifestyles and acknowledge their godly character.
Holy and righteous Father, please raise up women of strong character and faithful service. Give us the eyes to see their Godly lives and a willingness to hold them up as examples to your people. Than you for the any godly women in our Christian Heritage who have had tremendous impact for good - women like Deborah, Esther, Mary, Dorcas, and Priscilla. I also want to thank you for those godly women who have made such a great difference in my life and taught me so much about Faith, Hope, and Love. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen
On a Personal note, I would like to thank these ladies who have believed in me from the very beginning. Who have been with me during all the difficult trials and with me through the Walk that God has set before me.
LaDonna Jones....Words alone cannot express the love I have for this very special woman of God. She is my best friend. She has been with me through every walk that I have walked. She has lifted me up when things have been so low that I didnt know which way to turn. She has shared the joy in my life. She knows when I need a hug. She is never too busy to share her heart and thoughts. LaDonna, you are so SPECIAL. You mean the world to me. God BLESSED me the day HE brought you into my life. You are my best friend, but more than that, you are my SISTA....

In His Love,
- I love the Lord. I attend Gulf Coast Assembly of God church in North Port, FL. My husband Carl and I have lived in Florida for 6 yrs. We are originally from Long Island, NY. We have 2 dogs, 2 beautiful kitties and 2 birds.. My heart belongs to the Lord...He is my best friend, my daddy. He has brought me from the pits of hell and brought me to the beautiful works of his world. I thank God everyday for what he has done in me and thru me and he keeps me growing everyday,I love the journey he has me on and i wake each morning excited to see what he has for me. I wake in the morning and the first thing I say is "Thank you Lord for this day that you have given me. Let me do what you want me to do. When I hear your voice speak to me saying "FOLLOW ME" let me always be obedient." My hearts desire is to reach Women from all over the country and locally. I am active in our Womens Ministry. It is such a blessing that we have such a wonderful Womens Ministry. Our women know that we have all been thru lifes UPS AND DOWNS and TOGETHER we lift each other up and encourage each other....
