Day 147 of 365 Days of JOY!
If you have been following my blog previously, you must have thought I downright lost my JOY. I have been charting my course through 365 Days of JOY and sharing what brings me JOY as I am able. But the last 6 weeks or so, my JOY tracking has lacked.
On ministry teams at our church we often talk in planning meetings about the importance of not forgetting the JOY factor in leading and facilitating ministry. Can you relate? Does ministry or a task God has given you often weigh so heavy on you that you loose the JOY factor in it all?
The JOY I share with you today has taken many twists and turns on quite a long journey to reach the point of reclaiming the JOY factor – to say the very least.
But then again, God often takes me on a long walk to teach me all He wants me to learn. I’m a slow study. But when I get it…it’s deep within me.
As I set this banner out for all to see, it brings me more JOY than words could describe. I have witness epidemic spiritual hunger and thirst for real relationship between women of all generations. I have been blessed to watch as many women, some for the first time, risk jumping off the edge of a cliff into the unknown of sharing relationship with a woman outside her own life season. It is with great JOY I long to journey with these women helping them to understand the value of mentoring / discipleship relationships and equipping them with all the Lord has taught me along the way. Releasing them to the beauty of bonding between women that invites the work of God to impact both of their lives.
