Transitions

Dark haired girl reading BibleACM Transitions

 

It is early here at my home. I am sitting at my desk in my library, long before most of my family is out of bed. It is Sunday. It is the Sabbath. I am about to send my son back to school. He attends LU in Virginia and it’s on the other side of the country. He was home for a short visit and it is never long enough.

When he comes home, I am always aware of how much he changes each trip. He is growing older, he is growing deeper in his walk with Christ and I feel like I am missing out a lot on this part of his life.

Sometimes, it is hard to let go but it is the best thing. I know the Lord has my son in His hands and my son is following the Lord’s lead. I am not worried but I miss him.

There is a joy though, knowing that during this transition from being his nurturer to his, I’m not even sure what to call this phase of mothering, to being his .. coach… yes, dear ones, I’m rambling icon smile Transitions

See, if you have been reading my blogs for any amount of time, you know I dread changes. But, this one is a pleasant one. This is how He designed our relationship to be. Whole, happy and Spirit-led. He is a fine young man with Jesus leading him. He is on his adventure and it is such fun to be able to witness.

My daughter will be joining him in the fall and my oldest daughter is finishing up her college career. My two youngest children are still being molded into their adventures. So much to watch, to pray and be thankful for. Being a mom is what has defined me for many years now and I am starting to see another transition in my  life coming. Oh Joy…

Life is full of transitions and they can be good. They can bring new possibilities such as marriages, babies and new adventures in careers and new friends. It is how we react that affects how we embrace them. How do you see the world? Half full or half empty?

I am learning to choose to be more positive. Life is too short to not embrace the journey He is calling us.

A Strong Woman

Woman With Bible Prov31Jewels 300x207 A Strong Woman

In this week of Thanksgiving, have we thought about  all the strong women in our lives?   For all those who lived a life of faith and were steadfast in their devotion to their Lord and their families, how do you say thank you?

First, what makes a strong woman?

  • She submits her heart and soul to Jesus Christ, the King of all Kings.
  • She chooses to love without fear.
  • She is willing to put others before her own needs.
  • She is diligent in all she does.
  • She is devoted to her family and friends.
  • She is a student of the Word and of Life. She is constantly looking to grow in all aspects of life.

There are just a few characteristics of a strong woman. I am interested in your list!

A strong woman is what we all dream of being. We have been blessed with many examples such as woman like Corrie ten Boom, Ruth Graham, Kay Arthur, Beth Moore just to mention a few.

Being a strong woman is a virtuous woman (Prov 31:10). A woman of high moral character and strength. A strong woman is not based on if they at home full-time or works outside the home. It is a matter of the heart. Are we able to love freely without restrictions or qualifications. Life of a strong woman is exciting and an adventure. When we are feeling secure in our own self, we are able to live without fear.

We are able to pick up our crosses and follow Him for we know that we are truly loved. We can take risks for we know Who holds our future. A Christian woman has been portrayed as a  weak, an unintelligent doormat which should be ignored and  disregarded as someone of little value and we as a Christian community haven’t always proved this to be false. We must take time to grow and know who we are  being called to be. Loving, Wise, Compassionate, Learned, Strong and A Woman of Vision.  Are you strong? Have you thanked a woman who has shown you what it  is to be strong recently?

 

What’s your definition of a strong woman?

An Invitation

 

An Invitation!

InviteProv31Jewels An Invitation

We need friends. We  need sisters. We may not always get along, we may not always see the world from the same point of view, but we need each other.  God designed us to live life with others. He created us in His image and He is a relational Being and so are we.

I love bible study. I love it even more when I get to share it with other ladies.  There is something very precious to be able to share each other’s lives as we walk this journey, we call ‘life’. I love to learn more about the Word of God and to be able to learn from others is what it is all about for me. It is the Community that is built by walking together. We need each other.

Many of us are actually introverts. We are ‘ok’ on our own but in reality, even the shyest of persons still need interaction of others.

Fall is a time when many churches will roll out their new Bible Studies. It is a time of fresh beginnings and this is a great way to find community frankly, gathering together over a cup of coffee and a study is a wonderful way to connect. We have our own small groups called, House Church.

We live in a highly stressful world. We are asked to be on top of our game at all times. We all need encouragement of other women. We truly are not alone and we all face similar struggles. Whether we are at home full-time or work outside the home full-time. We all have the same desires, the same goals for our children and we all strive to be the best mother, wife, grand mother, sister, whoever He has called us to be.

Come and join a small group. I bet you can find one at your home church!If you do not have one you can join, We also have one online and I am inviting you to join us in our community but clicking on the Our Community link above icon smile An Invitation  We are going through Beth Moore’s A Woman’s Heart together and you are most welcome to join in! When you join the facebook group, please find me, Nancy Adams, and let me know you would like to join our study! I’m so looking forward to meeting you!

 

GOD BLESS!

Feasting on the Word

Feasting on the Word

 

bible and coffee Feasting on the Word

 

It is finally fall and we had a morning of rain. I live in California and we are in a serious drought. It smelled so refreshing. It is like  my little corner of the world was being washed clean. I’ve been noticing in our area, cardboard signs with the words, “Pray for Rain”.  We need rain, that is for sure, but I would also say, we need the rain to come to our soul..

How do we quench our souls?

Feasting on the Word

Girls, we must be in the Word of God. I know, I’m probably sounding like a broken record. I am always pushing reading His Word on ya.. but we must read it for all it’s worth and then read some more! It is a living and active book. We will never   be full if we are focused on it. We must be hungry for it. It nourishes the soul and frees the mind. We will find freedom if we know His Word!

As women, we are generally givers. We are able to see what others can miss. We are the nurturer and so often we do not take enough time to rejuvenate  our souls, and the only way to do this completely is spending time in His presence. It is imperative for our own good as well as those around us that we set aside time to find time worship and the word.

Do you take time for community? We are not called to be alone but to do this life, this ministry, yes, if you are alive in Christ, you are in ministry…. (we are all called to the Great Commission, but I digress), we are called to community. I have an opportunity to do both… come join us for a Beth Moore Bible Study, A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place. We are starting next Saturday, October 4th!!!!  Join us at www.facebook.com/groups/proverb31jewels

Dear Ones,  now is the time to stay in the Word. Now is the time to put our relationship with the King first. It’s time to feast on the Word!
