Do you have HOPE?

Two Minute Tuesday

When I became the president of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League at my church, I had a lot of hopes, was very optimistic and had great expectations for my group. First, I hoped that women would show up at the meetings and socials. And secondly, that I would be able to keep them interested for an entire year.

I had hope and then found HOPE. I found it on the LWML website under Service > Group Resources. There it was, everything I needed for my group to be active in LWML. I even found a how-to manual called reSOURCEs that could help me for two whole years. I wasn’t alone. I found HOPE.

Now HOPE is in my heart and a very important part of my LWML life. Romans 5:5 says,
And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

Go and find HOPE. You will not be disappointed.

LWML – Ladies Who are Moved in Love

Two Minute Tuesday

Serve the Lord with gladness! Really? Serving usually means work or inconvenience or making compromises. Is it realistic to expect women to give of themselves like that … gladly??

By God’s grace, we do serve the Lord with gladness. We are ladies who are moved in love, living out the truth of 1 John 4:19: We love because He first loved us.

Be encouraged even when you don’t feel like serving, that in Him we are loved and are able to love others. Be equipped by daily studying His Word. Be engaged by participating in LWML events and activities. Enjoy being a ‘gladness-server’ of His love.

Hidden Gifts

Two Minute Tuesday

Did you ever receive a wonderful and generous gift from somebody and then put it away and never used it?  That wouldn’t seem right, would it?

Have you received gifts from God that you have “put away” and aren’t using? 

Let me ask you if you are good at sewing or good with kids, a good cook, a good singer or a good organizer?  Do you have other skills that I haven’t mentioned?  Are you using these gifts or are they parked away where nobody will ever see them?

Don’t keep those gifts hidden away!  Use what God has given you to serve Him and to serve others.

Be Strong and Courageous

Two Minute Tuesday

“For [God] has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’” This passage out of Hebrews 13 is one that I cherish. As a Professional Church Worker that promise from God means everything to me. Like Moses and Joshua [Deuteronomy 31] I count on His presence no matter where I serve or with what situation He presents me. I can be strong and courageous as God leads the way.

As much as this passage forms a cornerstone for my service in the Lord, I know that this promise is for everyone. God wants us to be confident in Him and to live in a way that reflects this truth. This may mean saying ‘yes’ to a new job or a move to a new town or a request of nomination for a position within your church or the LWML. Check out the Leader Development’s ‘Volunteers in Christ’s Ministry’ at www.lwml.org/developing-leaders. Be secure in His Word and courageous, for He has promised “I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Gifts

Two Minute Tuesday

Throughout our lives we have been given a lot of various gifts. As children, we eagerly anticipated the gifts we would receive for birthdays. Each gift you opened with anticipation and surprise.

Yet before you were born the Lord had already blessed you with a gift you didn’t even know existed. In Jeremiah 1:5a, the Bible says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” God set you apart and gave you gifts or talents that make you the unique person you are today.

The Time is Now to seek within yourself and uncover the many gifts the Lord has given to you; to realize and share those gifts as a mentor, a leader, or a servant in the LWML.

Reach out – even inside your church!

Two Minute Tuesday

The Time is NOW to plan an activity for the whole church body, embracing the mission of the LWML. Collect and assemble any of these kits to be given to local agencies in need. Pick one or two kits and ask everyone to bring items for one complete kit.

Are you thinking out of the box? Don’t ask your LWML group to host – ask other women you know who have a heart for missions. Make this a Saturday morning breakfast activity, or an activity on Sunday morning immediately after worship. Don’t overthink this – but do publicize.

Take time to share information about the LWML mission grants as participants assemble their kits using any or all of the resources available on this website. The Time is NOW to reach out – even inside your church!
