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!

Serve to Show Jesus

Two Minute Tuesday

SCARY--a far-away move, two small children, a new church.  Thanks to Gerry, I would find a loving place.  She was an inviter and an encourager.  Through her, the LWML became my future.  She was one of three now deceased LWML women whom God sent to let me see Him through them.  Marie was a behind-the-scenes person.  The only way you knew what she was doing for the Lord was to “catch” her doing the tasks like cleaning bathrooms or painting walls at church.  She had the gifts of helps and service.  The third, Florence, was an out-front person.  The Lord gifted her with leadership and wisdom. These inspirational women lived their faith and shared Jesus and LWML with me. Is there someone you can touch in this way? Notice, that God used all different types of women to reach me. Step out there and be a mentor to those women in the pew around you. We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ (I Thessalonians 1:2-3).

May the LWML continue to be a conduit for women to follow Jesus and serve Him and His people.
