Today was my last day in full time kids’ ministry. I wanted to share something that God spoke to me today after I got home. He told me that He had used my service in kids’ ministry to heal me from past hurts, and give me time to grow.
When I came to Christian Life Church I was so broken. I felt as though my life was a mess, and I didn’t know if I would ever be okay. I attended my first Bible study, “Breaking Free” by Beth Moore, and I received quite a bit from it. Since then, I have attended several other studies, and they have all been awesome. Earlier this year, I felt God leading me to do the “Breaking Free” study again, because there were still areas of captivity in my life. I gained so much from doing this study the second time. Debbie Edwards asked me to pray about leading this study in the fall. The more I prayed and talked with other ladies in the church, I felt like this is what God wanted me to do.
I believe God will use my past to help others see that with Him “all things are possible”. I know God wants to redeem my past by helping other ladies with the same struggles. I know I still have some growing to do, I realize and accept how much God really loves me no matter what I have done or may do. His love will never change. I am redeemed. I am His beloved daughter, and He is my friend. I am praying that the story of my healing will bring Him glory.
I am excited about where God is leading me. Thank you all for your prayers over the years, and the love you show to all people.
Love you all,
