Hello ladies, this praise report is long overdue. I praise God who is so awesome and amazing because a year ago I felt extremely overwhelmed with work that I felt I my time for anything was super thin, since then I submitted a PR that my EH is working more with me (we work from home) and I am able to spend more time with the Lord, my family and ministering.
In my heart, I have wanted to minister to other women but didn’t know how exactly that would happen since I work from home and I’ve let go so don’t attend a local church. I am mostly with my family at home and we do most things together. However, I am part of a ministry for children here in Nicaragua, Central America that gives toys, school supplies, and clothing to children and share the love of God to them in which I have been able to meet many of my sisters here in this ministry!!
Through our ministry to children, a church reached out to me to go and speak with women about what the Lord has done in my life. Although, honestly, I felt nervous to go and finally do what I had been asking God for, it was wonderful to share the restoration of my marriage, and all the amazing miracles my Beloved has done since our restoration in all areas of my life, and most of all I was able to share the intimate relationship I have with Him and how all woman can have the same. I was able to speak about the chapter “Your First Love” in “A Wise Woman” book. Since that first speaking engagement took place, I was able to go speak again at their church and then another church reached out to me and would like me to speak as well.
I praise my Beloved for giving me the desires in my heart, so others may hear and know that He is still a God that can do anything and move in any situation when we place our trust in Him!! That He is still a God that restores marriages and heals all wounds!!! I pray that you will listen to His words, meditate on them and trust Him to allow His will to flow into your lives!!
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 NIV
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:3-5 NIV
Lastly, I praise God because my EH now works with me and I am able to work fewer hours. I had been stressed about the responsibilities of my jobs, and now I am able to spend more time with my Beloved and with my family as well as minister to women.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22)
Ministry Note: This PR from Quesia was submitted just before that we shared regarding our annual Women’s Retreat in Nicaragua being canceled due to the civil unrest. Little did Quesia know or we know what was up ahead and how our HH was using Quesia to prepare women for what they would soon face.
“What More Can I Ask For?”
Today is a day that I want to give my HH all the glory for an amazing month. It has been years but for this month of July, the Lord allowed all my children and granddaughter to spend together. My home was full again with laughter and joy. We were able to have family dinners, cuddling together watching movies and enjoy the summer days at the pool and beach.
My son is starting his life as he has graduated from the University, rented his first apartment and starts his new job tomorrow. He was in between 3 positions and I feel so blessed because my Love provided for Him confirmation and he is so excited.
My younger son is attending an Art school and is so talented in so many ways. Besides visual art, he enjoys photography, videography and making music. I asked the Lord for Him to guide him for his future and to use his talents for His glory. He also needs community service hours so when my EH said he was able to get him an internship shadowing the media specialist at the church we attend at times, I jumped for joy. My son was so excited about sharing the tour he took and all the amazing equipment he was introduced to. He is shining with His glory as he helps them and learns the skills to become better at what he loves to do. My Lord is so good.
I am thankful for my HH and His guidance in raising my family and seeing them as they become independent and create their own lives. What I am most grateful for is that all of them are seeking Him and His will for their lives. What more can I ask for?
“Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” Proverbs 22:6
“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:16-17 NIV
