Why "Women On God’s Mission"?

All women are on a mission.  Whether we like it or not, we have a huge impact on everyone around us.  Starting at home and reaching out into our communities, God can use us in tremendous ways.  So, let’s get into the Word and then get up out of the church pew, ready to make a difference in someone’s life today. 
This ministry springs up with prayerful humility and anticipation, because I believe it’s what God wants me to do.  It is not that I think I have any remarkable new insight nor any flashy talent to entertain.  God has placed you and me here for a special purpose, modern day Esthers “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14).  Are we wisely investing our energies and talents to make a difference for God’s glory?

I have to write.  No, my husband isn’t requiring this of me, nor is it a prerequisite to serving in our local church.  Simply, if I don’t write, after a short while I start getting jumpy and grumpy; after I write, well, I feel energized, peaceful, joyful.  That in itself is lame reasoning; but, the more I stifle my urge to write, the more I realize this isn’t a fabricated fancy.  Therefore, writing must be something God has given to me to use for His glory, here and now, not waiting on the shelf until I have more time.

The best thing I can do is to point you to Jesus.  He will never fail you.  He loves you so much that He gave His only Son to die in your place.  What do you think about Jesus?  What is your life saying to others about what you think about God?

We as women have incredible power on those around us.  Just as Paul in his mission for God, we can be used of God to turn our world upside down:

“‘These who have turned the world upside down have come here too … saying there is another king—Jesus.'”  Acts 17:6b

Even if I am the only one impacted by my cyberspace scribbles, I know that this is something I must pursue.  And if anyone else happens to be uplifted or challenged, I will be overjoyed, because I’ll know God used me.  What a privilege to be a woman on God’s mission!

One thought on “Why "Women On God’s Mission"?

  1. Sara,
    Your messages and your testimony are so encouraging to me. I also accepted Jesus around the young age of 4. I also struggled as a young girl with my faith, but God has been so faithful in strengthening it for me. Thank you for sharing your testimony. It really touched my heart.
