Feminar Blog first post! February 23, 2018

 Welcome to the brand new Feminar® Blog.  Our desire through this Blog is to be a regular encouragement to women. The Feminar® event strives to encourage women once a year through a mass gathering, where you come to us.  This is our effort at coming to you and walking beside you with the Word of God in hand and handing you a cup of water as you run the race. We have asked Lisa Williams to write our first one. Lisa led our Feminar® committee for many years. Here’s Lisa:
 

Blessings to all of you attending Feminar® this weekend. It was my honor to be able to serve alongside Bob and Janet in this ministry for many years. God allowed them to mentor me and help me embrace the gifts and talents He had placed in my life to serve others.

This week God has brought to mind many sweet memories and truths learned through the years of worshipping and hearing the truth from God’s word at Feminar®. 

Just yesterday, I was having a radiation treatment and in the room a song from Avalon, a guest at

Feminar ® many years ago, came on. Every word of every story, Every star in every sky, Every corner of creation, Lives to testify. For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love, Be a witness in the silences when words are not enough, With every breath I take, will give thanks to God above, For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love. This prompted me to pray for all involved in Feminar® this weekend. It also brought to mind a truth I had learned from Janet’s teaching “look for God to come to you”. Another Avalon song I recalled is Everything to Me: We’re living in uncertain times, And more and more I find that I’m Aware of just how fragile life can be, I want to tell the world I’ve found, A love that turned my life around, They need to know that they can taste and see, Now every day I’m praying, Just to give my heart away, I want to live for Jesus So someone else might say, That He is Everything to me, He’s more than a story, More than words on a page of history, He’s the air that I breathe, The water I thirst for And the ground beneath my feet, He’s everything Everything to me. And looking back over my life, At the end I’ll go to meet Him, Saying he’s been Everything to me. Has this not been the thread of all the messages we have heard at Feminar® from Janet and others? He is more than a story or words on a page, He is everything we need every moment of every day, He is the air we breathe and the ground beneath our feet! We must get the Word and Truth in us!

In September 2017, I was diagnosed with stage 4 Gastroesophageal Cancer. God has my days numbered and I will live exactly that many days! He has been faithful to meet all my needs. Whether you are on your final walk toward eternity, living in the trenches of motherhood, widowhood, financial problems or taking care of aging parents, He knows! (2 timothy 1:12)

“God is working in your life in both creative and orderly ways. What God is doing in your life right now may not make sense to you, but it’s not because He’s nonsensical. It’s because He’s creative. God wants us to surrender to His will, but we tend to want a blueprint of His plans so we can decide whether or not to surrender. He knows what is coming next for you. That’s why He can judge His work in you as good. Give God room to be completely creative. Meet with Him daily as He unfolds the plan in perfect order. He’s really good at what He does.” Beth Moore.
