The Bible is full of kings, palaces and thrones. We, as Christians, know that today God sits on His heavenly throne (Psalm 11:4) with Jesus at His right hand (Luke 22:69).
The throne room in Heaven must be a glorious sight. In the books of Ezekiel and Revelation, we are given glimpses of what God’s throne room looks like, and honestly, it is something that my mind cannot wrap itself around. I think it is beyond anything that we can imagine or even process in our limited human minds. But one day, yes, one day, we will get to see that throne room and the One who sits on it, and we will fall flat on our face in awe of what we see.
I’m one of those folks who believe without a shadow of a doubt that God’s throne is a very real and literal throne. It is where He pronounces judgement and administers justice. It is where He reigns over all creation; where all creatures bow before Him to hear His commands and to give Him praise; where He bestows mercy and grace in times of need.
Back around Memorial Day of last year, God called me into women’s ministry. This website is part of that ministry (meaning that it’s the part that He’s allowing me to actually do right now).
Now being completely honest, I’ve never wanted to be in ministry. Frankly, it never even crossed my mind, but God has slowly but surely confirmed for me that somewhere down the line, I’ll be in women’s ministry.
God recently divinely orchestrated a meeting (seriously, it was crazy the way we met) with a sweet lady who also happens to be called into an oddly similar ministry. We didn’t know each other, but it is evident that God has put us in each other’s lives for a reason. So, we are partnering together at some point in the near future, and I hope you’ll get to meet her soon. Neither of us knows exactly what all of this ministry-talk means, but we know that we’ve been called and that our answer is “yes” to whatever and where ever He leads. So, will you pray with us? Will you pray that God will direct our next steps and provide us with opportunities to minister to you as well as other women out there?
