Good Afternoon Brides! In my last Praise Report "Just "Throw" the Seeds" I mentioned that I would tell you about how I acquired "Friends" on my BNN FB Profile. So when I started off I basically invited "Suggested Friends", friends that FB suggests… What happens is that many, many will accept but a lot of the time it is for their gain like adding you to competitions or inviting you to other groups… What I do is immediately decline the notification and click to remove it.
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Having been a previous "Stander" I also sent out invites to many women from "Standers" groups. Seeking God He showed me by having them as friends and posting RMT's and Praise Report's they would then be exposed to the material just like I was when I was a Stander but still hurting… Then I moved on to inviting women whom I came across who left messages speaking about their situation, especially those that sounded hopeless and needed hope. I would send them a message on Messenger with the HopeAtLast.com link. After a while, I started getting a few friend requests from women…
I mentioned in the previous Praise Report's that I also started a FB Page called Hope At Last - Marriage Help. While acquiring these friends I can automatically send them invites to "Like" the Page as well.
I have received a few messages from women thanking me for posting ministry material and one lady, in particular, messaged me to say that she reads my posts but unfortunately does not respond as she wants to remain anonymous… So this had me thinking and enquiring my Love if He thought I should start a Closed Group? I noticed quite a few of the same women also liking and responding to what I have been posting. So when I thought about starting a Closed Group I started asking my Love about a Ministry Name.
Well, let me just say He was very, very quiet about the name He wanted me to have for my Ministry. But I kept on asking and waiting… Then He led me back to reading my RMT as I had read that Ver from RGB had founded her ministry name based on her RMT… So I went back to reading my RMT and what stood out for me when reading it was a scripture in Revelation 2:4 "Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love".
I thought back to when I first started learning during my RJ and I remember telling myself that He has to be 1st in my thoughts, 1st in my heart, the 1st thing I thought about when I woke up, the 1st one I would greet. So then I just KNEW that my Ministry name needed to be "FIRST LOVE". It just happened so naturally and I just felt that it would be perfect as a Ministry name as there would be absolutely no doubt about what my Ministry or Closed Group was all about!!
Hosea 2:7 (KJV) And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.
Today as I type this Praise Report I am VERY EXCITED to let you know that it is the same day that I have launched my First Love Closed Group! :)) So in my next Praise Report, I will tell you about how my HH led me to start setting up the Closed Group!
I really want to thank my Love because it has given me sooooo much joy and gladness and it has been exciting being able to share the Good News of HIS love, desire and plans for these hurting women to find HIM as their HH and His immense love for them so that they will no longer hurt but have His JOY, peace, and love filling their hearts taking away their hurt and confusion and many questions to leave them with a heart bursting with His JOY!
Song of Songs 2:10-13 (NIV) My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit on the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
Esther 4:14—“And who knows whether you have not attained position for such a time as this?”
We would love for you to look into finding out just how easy it is to become a Minister!
Did you know that this is one of the most IMPORTANT facets of being one of His followers!! Something so few believers ever do?
Mark 16: 15-16—“And I [Jesus] said to them, "GO into all the world and proclaim the gospel, the Good News, to the whole creation.”
We believe that He called you to RMI for a GOOD Reason—not just to restore your marriage, not just so you can find your HH—but to also help encourage other women.
Your testimony—right where it is today—can ignite a fire of hope in women who are feeling full of despair and hopelessness—showing them that holding His hand, the same way you are holding it, is the way to escape or at least get through to the other side.
