Descendants of Grace - Freeing Women to Walk in Their Calling
Fri, Apr 28, 2017, 6:00 PM – Sat, Apr 29, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
We all have a calling - something that we are drawn to, something that compels us toward a profession, a hobby or a ministry. God endows us each with gifts that He intends for us to share in order draw us and others nearer to Him and fulfill His purpose in our lives. But, life gets in the way. We tend to think that past mistakes and wrong decisions preclude us from participating in ministry. We think of ourselves as products of our past and label ourselves as not good enough, not smart enough or simply unworthy. Maybe it's not a past event per se, but just a wrong assessment of who you really are that holds you back. How can we further God's kingdom when we've messed up so badly? How can we encourage our friends and our daughters to be confident when we are not really confident ourselves?
What if I told you that God could use you in spite of your past? What if I told you God could use you BECAUSE of your past?? What if I told you that who you truly are, has uniquely qualified you to to do the things that will bring you the most joy in your life???
The truth is, God can use anyone to further His kingdom. In fact, He used a deceiver, a prostitute, a cursed woman, an adulterer and a virgin to usher in the Savior of the world. This is the lineage of the Christ! If God could use these women, He can use you! Come learn about the bloodline of Jesus and be prepared to let go of the things that hold you back from walking in your calling. You are a descendant of Grace!
