Show Us Your Ministry- You are His Pearl!
Kelly from Kelly's Korner is hosting a party today titled -Show Us Your Ministry and you can also share your testimony. What a privilege.
So if you are here visiting from Kelly's, welcome!
Some of you may be familiar with pieces of my story. If not, you are welcome to read a little about it here . After overcoming those circumstances I have made it my purpose in life to make sure that as many women as possible know- down to their very core -that they are His pearl. I also dream in technicolor about placing pearl necklaces around every woman on this earth. I dream pretty.
And by His grace I started doing just that last March at the first of hopefully many Pearl Events.
During the last twelve years, God used my husbands nick name for me- (Pearl) and the metaphor of a simple pearl and how it is formed, to bring about tremendous healing and to turn the oyster shell of my circumstances into a beautiful ministry. This blog is where I write to encourage, edify and support His precious women - whom I love dearly.
I have also been given some special opportunities to speak and teach at women's events, churches and bible studies where I share my testimony and give Him the glory for what you see here on the pages of Pearls and Grace.
And I absolutely love it. It is my passion.
I have a heart for the broken. The lost. The abused. The rejected. The abandoned. The ones that everyone said would never make it. Especially those. I have been all of the above. I have a heart for single mothers who can barely make ends meet and women who would trade every dime in their bank account just to see two pink lines. I have been both. I have a heart for those who finally get those two pink lines, after waiting for a very long time, only to lose in the end. I have been this woman three times. I have a heart for those who are trying to find a safe way out in the middle of the night and for those who are begging God to explain why they are still alone. I have been both. And I am thankful.
My many experiences are what give me such tremendous compassion.
Ministry without compassion is just- a position.
I wanted to share the video we created and used during The Pearl Event last March. I pray you are encouraged today and that after visiting here and reading through this blog you will leave knowing that no matter what..........You are His pearl.
