"The Lord searches [The eyes of the Lord search] ·all [throughout] the earth for people ·who have given themselves completely to him [whose hearts are completely his/committed to him]. He wants to strengthen them." 2C169
Dear brides, today I feel encouraged to share that since I stopped being a bystander and became a cheerleader - a Minister - a bridge for other women to walk through my testimonies and be ministered to and encouraged to do good, I that it is His will, I have been blessed with so much more from Him.
Many women write to us and apply to be ministers, that's wonderful, I was there and believe me, I pushed very very very hard and knocked on that door over and over again for the opportunity to open up for me, I think we have a genuine and compassionate desire to give and return what we have received, we want other women to be blessed as much and more than what we have been blessed and that is that every time we share our praises we are blessed with much more because that is the type of woman that our Husband longs for, a woman who admires Him, respects Him and always speaks well of Him, that type of woman that He would like to bless much more so that she shares more about Him and His goodness (2C169 https://www.biblegateway.com/verse/en/2%20Chronicles%2016:9).
So what does it mean to be a minister? Going through the books of the Bible, I can see that the ministry of each one of the disciples was carried out in a different way, but always walking within the will of the Lord, doing what He had instructed them, and walking according to the gifts that He delivered them, following the call for which He created them, some He sent to preach to the Gentiles, others to the Jews... I think as women we must be aware that we were created women to be THE ADEQUATE HELP of our husbands -spiritual leaders- even if they have not taken that place, we can prepare ourselves for when they do (in faith), so He is preparing us as Wise Women and therefore our first ministry as Erin mentioned in one of her books it is our home, and then if we can be effective in ministering to others.
How blessed we are to have this door open to share our praises and everything He is doing in our ministries, and our homes, following His teachings in everything, keeping our home clean and tidy, creating our routine based on what our husband and family need, in providing them with delicious and nutritious meals, in being an attentive ear, a soft and gentle spirit, and since that is going to form the character of our children and husbands even if we do not see it initially, the seeds that we are watering will one day give fruit... we are a great influence in our homes and that is where our ministry begins, this is the beginning of your ministry to share the good news from your home with other women (using this website for example to share) who are just beginning this journey and who need to be encouraged to obey His teachings to be blessed.
Dear Bride and Minister at home, this ministry has taught you to go to HIM, the source of all knowledge and wisdom without intermediaries, because He wants you to be successful in everything, He wants you to be close friends and trust Him for everything. In each area let Him teach you and guide you, just walk in faith, sometimes there is no other person who has the same situation, perhaps we do not have the same testimony or situation and that is also great because we can be pioneers! You can be the first to build that bridge and guide others, that is what our Beloved Husband is looking for, ears attentive to His voice that follow Him and share the good news, they teach other women as He guides them in their own walk.
Personally, I have been very blessed as I share more and more of all the wonderful things He does for me, I always love to go and reread past praise reports because they remind me of the battles He won for me and how His love for me has been. I manifest there, this is how He has used my life to minister. Since I stopped being a spectator and started being an encourager woman https://hopeatlast.com/movec1/spectator/, my Beloved has given me many more experiences of how wonderful it is to have an intimate relationship with Him to share and shout them out to the world just because I Love Him and I want Him to be honored and known for His love and kindness. And that is my blessing that the more I share the more He gives me (in love), and the more I get to know Him and be bathed in His sweet love. Isn't that what we're looking for, our First Love?
I encourage you to share your praises, big or small, and do not keep anything, you will see He does a lot with little, the important thing is to start sowing!!
