Knowing Your Purpose

Do you believe you were created for more? God has called each of us to promote and fulfill His purpose on the earth. What has God destiny you to do? For many years I knew there had to be more to life than what I was living. I had a loving family, good health, a job I enjoyed, and enough money to meet my needs but something was missing. I loved God and I was sure He loved me, but why was I filling so empty inside? Purpose was missing from my life. It is possible to live your entire life never discovering your purpose. We can only achieve true joy when we are walking in the plan of God for our lives.

As I begin to seek God, study His Word, and listen for His voice I received direction. Looking back now, it really wasn’t that hard of a thing to do. I believe that many times we tend to over think things making them more difficult. When one yields to God His plan and purpose becomes clear. Proverbs 3:5-6
New International Version (NIV) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Why not give Him a try, after all we try everything else.

A Woman’s Call

God is still calling women to function in the Kingdom. Have you ever felt as if God was calling you but you were not sure? Many women have expressed a desire to be used by God but are not sure in what capacity they can serve. Some churches have excluded women from functioning in ministry. The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 “Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law say. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.” (NIV) But Paul also writes in 1 Corinthians 11:5 “But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, it is the same as having her head shaved.” (NIV) Women were obviously allowed to pray and prophesy in the Christian gathering because otherwise it would have been no need for Paul to give instruction concerning this matter. In my new book “A Woman’s Call” I delve into this much debated issue, Are Women called to function in ministry?
