Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power…

Thanks so much for stopping by today for our Coffee Hour. I so enjoy this time with you and I truly appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to come hang out for a few minutes. It’s our WOW time again!

How many times do we drive by a “Help Wanted” sign these days? I would say I don’t see that sign as much as I used to, and so many people are out of jobs. I’m so thankful that His economy is plentiful, abounding with good things for us spiritually and emotionally, lacking nothing, certainly different from the economy you and I are part of in this world!

But if we were looking for a job, what would we want to do? Does money make that decision for us, or are we doing what He created us to do? Unfortunately, some of us don’t even know what that is, to be doing what He created us to do. Some of us are just paying the bills, showing up to work to earn a paycheck. I have come to learn, by His unconditional love and grace, that there’s more to life than that! I’ve also learned that when He “hires” us for a job, He qualifies us.

The Bible definitely has some beautiful examples of this. Look at Moses who tried to convince the Lord that he wasn’t the right man for the job. He even convinced God to give him a wing man and God did! And then there’s David as a child fighting Goliath the giant and winning! You and I would have never picked him as the man for the job! Yes, oftentimes the job He has for us doesn’t look like anything we could or would do but where He sends us, He equips us, qualifies us. Oh, how I know this with my inner being. I’ll explain as we go along.EL pen Logo with heart

Yesterday, as I was contemplating if I should share and write about this particular scripture in Matthew, He reminded me of the date coming up and that clinched it for me, convinced me that yes, this is what we will spend a few coffee hours on. See, July 10th will be three years that CPM has been in existence, and I thought it was just for a book! For those of you unfamiliar with Chicklit Power Ministries, I’ll be bringing you up to date as walk through this verse and the verse preceding it but the short story is that through a blog I was writing about loving unlovable people in our lives, several people asked if I could teach what I wrote, which I definitely wrote from my heart and my life experiences.

To say I was perplexed is an understatement, but after checking with my book team, they agreed we could host a small workshop. Well, there were seventy people that came to that first workshop and as I look back, it confirms what Jesus says in Matthew 9:27- “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.”

We’ll get into this WOW more tomorrow. In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears open for the Divine “Help Wanted” sign or statement that just may come your way!

    I like your WOW. This Sunday we had a guest speaker. I am sure you remember him, Gayle Erwin. His humor is a real plus because it imprints the importance of what he is saying. He was speaking about serving, about focusing on others and how Jesus hand picked the less then perfect to work for his purpose. Ahhhh, there it is, the least who were willing to put themselves into a situation of servitude for a purpose they didn’t fully understand until way later. So just because they were willing God blessed them with success as wonderful workers and servants for His Glory.
