“In His Embrace” is so much more than the name for the ministry that God is entrusting to my care! In recent months I have been reflecting on my life with new eyes to behold Him and a renewed desire to see Him in those times gone by.
Oh, what a life and what an amazing Father God! I have come to realize that every one of those days found me IN HIS EMBRACE no matter how high the mountaintop or how deep the valley. No matter the times when I walked away and did life “my way” He continued to hold me IN HIS EMBRACE. No matter the times when life fell apart with the death of all my family before I was 31, or the despair of divorce or the tragedy of an automobile accident He continued to hold me IN HIS EMBRACE. My God is true, beyond my comprehension, to His promise to never leave me or forsake me. Yes, IN HIS EMBRACE is so much more than a name for this ministry it is the very truth of my life!
The passion of my life beyond my Jesus and His word is women. My heart is for women to accept Jesus as their personal savior and to grow to love and serve Him with all of their lives. That same desire to love and serve Him is the cry of my own heart. By the grace of God alone I stand ready to share the truth of His word in teaching and the wonder of His presence in my life experiences in speaking. This is truly a God sized assignment and in Him I place my trust. I go back to verses that so often have been His guiding light for my life. Isaiah 43:18-19:
“Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past.
Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
And rivers in the desert.”
He is beginning a new thing in my life and I surely do not want to miss a single piece of that! This is all so exciting even though his word promises wilderness and deserts! I know that whatever the future holds I will be secure IN HIS EMBRACE.
Very soon this web page will be up and running by the grace of God and some very precious and talented friends! I am so grateful for each one and for those that have continued to encourage me to follow God to this new place. I have to say at times I am completely intimidated by the whole idea of a ministry and speaking and teaching. I know when I see the task ahead as impossible it most often assures me that indeed this is God’s thing for me…too big for me just right for Him!
Thank you for reading this and for your interest in IN HIS EMBRACE. I would be so blessed if you would pray for me as I go forward. Who knows, we may just meet up in the near future!
