Women In Ministry – Devotionals

It can seem so daunting that Jesus told us to go into all the world! I think most people focus on that, but if you look closely He gave us authority that was tri-fold. In Matthew 28:18-19 (ESV) it says, “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples...

When I was a teenager, I loved the clothes in my mom’s closet. We wore the same size and I couldn’t wait to wear one of her peplum dresses along with peep toe pumps complete with the cutest bow— those were so classy in the 80’s! I felt like a million bucks and was definitely dressed for success. The Bible clearly...

And while staying with them he ordered them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, he said, “you heard from me; 5 for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” -Acts 1:4-5 I don’t know about you, but I love a rainy...

“For you shall go out in joy, and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for...

I haven’t always been a person to "seek peace and pursue it"! I remember when I was pregnant with my third child (now 29 years ago!), I had prayed and asked the Lord to give me peace during my pregnancy. Just peace. Undisturbed peace. Peace for me and peace for my child. I truly believed my feelings and my emotions affected...

2 Timothy 2:13 (NLT), “…if we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself.” Isaiah 46:4-5 (NLT) I will be your God throughout your lifetime--until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you. Excited faces, giggles of anticipation, twinkling lights, joyful tunes and perfectly wrapped...

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its...

A few times each year, I like to trade in my purse for a new one. Sometimes I go smaller, and sometimes I go bigger. Let’s be honest… it’s usually BIGGER. My husband always jokes that I could survive for years stranded on a desert island with only the contents of my purse! Today I decided to go with a smaller...

Galatians 5:22-23 NLT 22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control…  The fruit of the Spirit…we all know it. We’ve heard it. Many of us have memorized it! The past few weeks, my husband has been doing a series on it, with a little different twist! It has been...
