After taking down Christmas decorations, etc. I decided I was going to do some spring cleaning. Yes, I know it is a long time until spring but if you could see my house you would agree that I needed to get serious about some things! So, I went for it and I am talking moving furniture, wiping down base boards, washing windows, curtains and I could go on and on.
A few years ago, I waged war on mini blinds. When we were in Honduras every window was covered with a blind, for obvious reasons. One of the things I got so homesick for was to be able to open the windows and look out. Funny the things that you miss when you are far away from home. So, I came home and took down every mini blind. Nothing but wide-open windows for me only to realize that guests in our home didn’t have the same appreciation for openness that I did. So, some blinds had to go back up!
Well one of the worst chores is cleaning mini blinds. It is tedious, tiring and I have found no easy way to accomplish the task. It also doesn’t help that I am a product person and not process. In fact, in many situations the process is just an aggravation to me because it prolongs the result. In this case clean mini blinds. In cleaning mini blinds, it is one blind at a time. I found myself constantly looking down the line to see how many slats were left.
Then as God always does, He speaks to me in the most unlikely ways. This is what He said to me………. Isn’t that what you are supposed to do. Looking for that woman who is hurting and needs to know Jesus. You find them, share about Jesus, share with them that God can “clean” them up and then move on to the next one. Don’t be overwhelmed by all those who need me but know that everything that you do in Women’s Ministries should be focusing on that one more.
A key word in our mission statement is
The definition is to awaken a particular feeling in somebody. In this case the love of Jesus. Look for that one more to inspire.
Matthew 18: 10-13 talks about leaving the 99 and looking for that lost sheep and when it is found it is carried on the shepherd’s shoulders,
Let’s always be looking for that
