Open Hearts

Two Minute TuesdayThe new LWML logo makes a statement that as servants of our Lord He has opened our hearts to see, to hear, and to share His love. Christ’s death on the cross opened the kingdom of heaven for all people. The heart of God has won for all who believe the forgiveness we need through the blood of Christ. In 1 John 4:7 “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”

By His guiding, the heart of the LWML continues to be open in love for all around us … in our church, in our neighborhoods, and throughout the world. Open our hearts, Lord, that we will joyfully serve You and others wherever You lead us.

A New Look

null

Two Minute TuesdayIn celebrating 75 years of LWML past, we now have a new look for our future! Our new logo reminds us of how the heart of God is behind all that we are and do. He showed us His love through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Now we lift high the cross of Christ as it guides our thanks, praise, and service.

As I was reading some of the Leader Helps ideas on the LWML website under the service tab, I wondered, How well do we know the children in our congregations? Have you ever planned events for the entire family so young women can bring their children? This could be a service project and a simple meal, tying blankets, or visiting a nursing home.

God bless you as you Lift High the Cross of Christ in your society! To Him be the glory!

Someone Other Than Mom

Two Minute Tuesday

The month of March is a time of zone rallies and workshops. These events create exciting opportunities to reach out to those who are not involved in the LWML.

One of those groups are teens. The LWML’s Text Messages from God are timely and short devotions, reaching teens where they are. Sharing them is a way to support moms and reach out to teens, because they sometimes need encouragement from someone other than mom. How about being a teen mentor? It is a joyful way to serve.

Be Willing Wherever and Whenever

Two Minute Tuesday

We pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us.

Psalm 90: 16-17 Let Your work be shown to Your servants, and Your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us!

On a recent mission trip, I remembered, “Be willing wherever and whenever” and my experience at the Grand Canyon. My first view was its clouds — no beautiful canyon was seen. Then, slowly, a cloud would roll a bit to reveal a portion of the canyon — for a while — only to have another piece of God’s fluff roll in to cover it. That morning, the canyon was revealed in different areas — bit by bit — section by section — some parts for a short while and others for the entire morning. Eventually, the sun revealed the colorful canyon in all its glory.

Some work God gives us may only appear for a short time. Be ready! Some parts of it aren’t grand or showy or glorious by themselves. As it was on my mission trip, the work may be messy or physically taxing. Be willing — willing to do even the menial, for when the Son reveals the entire picture, what beauty will be shown!

Prayer: Lord God, I am Your servant.  May I keep my pledge to You and go whenever and wherever no matter how humble the task no matter how taxing the job no matter how large or small.  May the words I recite be the prayer of my soul. I praise You for making our service a thing that reveals Your beauty and glory. Amen!

A Recipe for Service

Two Minute Tuesday

Serve the Lord with gladness! Psalm 100:2

When I want to serve a scrumptious dessert, I look through my recipe file and cookbooks to find just the right recipe. I follow the recipe which lists all the ingredients I need, as well as the directions. Once done, I’m ready to serve the dessert.

Similarly, when asked to serve the Lord in the LWML, there’s also a recipe for that. First, go to the Lord in prayer to seek His direction. Receive guidance as you spend time in God’s Word. Then for a variety of resources (“recipes”) for serving the Lord with gladness, go to the LWML website, lwml.org. They will help prepare you to serve!  The time is NOW!

Think outside your church walls!

Two Minute Tuesday

Our LWML group decided we wanted to get out into the community more this year. For several months we find an organization and go volunteer. This morning we went to Assistance League of Tulsa’s Operation School Bell and helped clothe children from public schools who were in need of some help with uniforms, shoes, jackets and other necessities to attend school and be able to concentrate on their studies. We didn’t preach or teach the Gospel message but we hope we showed the love and care that Jesus showed when He was among the people. Other workers at the site were interested in what church we were from and how we came to be there.

Think outside your church walls! Get out into the public arena so people wonder who you are and why you are doing what you are doing. It can open conversations and opportunities for you. If you go to lunch afterwards it’s even better!

Engage, Encourage and Equip

Two Minute Tuesday

When I was a young wife, just starting my career, living in a place far from my hometown and family, I was invited by a lady at my new church to attend an LWML meeting. This woman encouraged me to participate in LWML events and to serve in various roles. She gently prodded me to accept elected positions, always sharing with me her knowledge of LWML and her example of leadership and service to others. She saw in me a future leader, something that I couldn't see.

This friend was an amazing example of how to mentor, how to engage, encourage and equip someone, leading to enjoyment of all things LWML. Is there a young woman in your life who could benefit by your being willing to be a mentor to her?
