“What a sweet night of refreshment!” I have continued to hear this over and over in regards to our recent women’s event ‘RENEW.’ Thank you for taking time out of your full schedules and investing in a time of sweet fellowship and worship! It was a great night of getting to know each other a little more intimately and being reminded of our need for both community and worship. For those who were unable to make it, you were missed! Don’t forget that you’re a vital part of this ministry too.
As we enter into the summer, I am reminded of the changes of yet another season. Changes are happening all around us: our kids are growing up, our parents are aging and our physical bodies are continually going through changes. But, I’m so thankful that in these times of inconsistencies, God is our constant. He doesn’t shift in the midst of some of the craziness that life brings. Ironically, God is the same for us everyday but in order for us to stand before Him we must CHANGE…our bitterness can’t be held onto as it once was….our jealousy for another’s success is replaced with a rejoicing heart…and our selfishness must be peeled away so that genuine love and grace can permeate us. The changes we will experience in God’s presence will be innumerable. You see, it’s impossible to get close to Christ without experiencing change. So, as life’s changes come our way may we keep in mind that they are also leading us closer into the presence of God.
Thank you for partnering with the women’s ministry here at Valley View through serving and growing together in Christ. Our women’s ministry is so excited to kick off some opportunities in the fall to develop relationships with one anther and also to dig deeper into our relationship with God. Look below for more information about the Women of Faith Conference that is coming to Dallas in September.
Enjoy your summer with friends and family! Ask God to bring you through the changes you’re facing with a better readiness to one day meet Him face to face.
‘Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2 NIV).
