This Saturday, I’m presenting a short message to one of the women’s ministry gatherings at my church.
Here is the gist of it: In times of trials, don’t walk away from your relationship with the Lord.
It was challenging to narrow down my texts. I had several more than I ended up incorporating specifically, but the ones that have been included are a good representation of what I hope to impart.
These are the specific recommendations I make:
Remember our example in Christ. He can use the broken places, disappointments, and failures in a mighty way. Stay connected and involved in the body of Christ. (Jn. 12:24)
Look for God’s character, commands, and promises as you delve into scripture. (We’re collectively reading through the Bible in a year at my church.)
Keep on praying; He changes us in these efforts. (Ro. 12:12)
Agree to wait on the Lord for His reply. Ask for discernment about what steps to take and what issues to surrender. (Hab. 2:1)
