We are so excited for this year as we are studying two of our favorite books - Nehemiah and Esther.
Nehemiah was the first book of the Bible I taught the women at Calvary San Juan Capistrano 12 years ago. It was an appropriate book as we were beginning to build a new work. We are still building and battling and the Lord is faithfully working.
It’s been said that the Christian life is not a playground, it’s a battleground. This year we will learn how to battle while building. We’ll be reminded that we too are chosen just like Nehemiah and Esther for such a time as this to stand and be bold for our faith.
We are a privileged people living in tumultuous times. Times that demand our careful attention and diligent service. Let’s not waste the time we have left, but use it to further the kingdom of God.
No matter your age, you are Chosen and called to build your faith, your family and your friends! You are Chosen to battle and fight for what’s right! And Chosen to be bold in your faith for such a time as this!!!
No work for God is accomplished without a fight.
Both Nehemiah and Esther were chosen and called to accomplish a difficult task and they were both opposed for doing so. Whenever we step out in the name of the Lord, we can expect opposition. But be assured that He who calls you is faithful and He will do it! (1 Thessalonians 5:24)
Who’s up for the challenge to build, battle and be bold for Him?
This year, we will learn how we can best be prepared to fight our battles and how to persevere when the building gets hard!
Get ready ladies—because we are going to battle with a sword in one hand and a trowel in the other!
We are looking forward to a fruitful year!
