All that happened before led to the special vision being laid upon my heart. I remember one evening I was writing a blog post and heard a voice speaking to me, saying along the lines of ‘Ministry, women’s ministry is for you…’ At first I sat back and waited again for assurance to hear the voice of God again as I was in shock for what had just been said. He said it again and I thought to myself, well if its meant to happen God take over, I guess I didn’t really look into it and take it seriously at first and doubted myself. (NEVER DOUBT YOUR CAPABILITIES; IT’S THE DEVIL TRYING TO THROW YOU OFF TRACK TO LOOSE FOCUS OF WHERE GOD IS TAKING YOU TO).
TESTS WILL COME
About a few weeks later after that revelation for ministry, confirmation one came about. I remember I was in church deep in praise and worship, eyes closed, hands raised and in a vision I saw myself dressed in white, knelt down and God had availed Himself to me dressed in white, stood in front of me. What was also interesting about this vision is that I was holding a microphone speaking to Him. I held onto that vision and prayed over it, but in my mind was still holding back with all this.
Following this, not long after my dad to received a vision about me talking in front of people. Again it came as a surprise to me and what was interesting was that the two visions connected one with me holding a microphone and one with me talking in front of people. LOL I was still holding back to some extent so prayed over it and being stubborn pushed it all to one side, not to say that I was ignoring it but just to be sure and certain wanted to know more before taking that leap of faith.
At this stage a vital lesson had been learnt, when God speaks with obedience act on it and follow through what has been said because He will never leave you and what He has started will surely finish in your life. Be bold, have confidence and the determination to see it through. He called you because He knew and believed you were capable to do what you’ve been called to do in life. With your purpose comes the passion to succeed. No failure but progression and growth to higher levels and prosperous results.
WITHOUT CHRIST I AM NOTHING
So at this stage God has spoken to me and there have been two visions one to me and one to my dad. I still hesitated and then a sister in Christ told me about her vision concerning my life too. In this vision I was under a tree, the sun was shining directly on me and I was speaking to many women sitting around me. This particular vision literally blew me away I was speechless. Here is a woman who doesn’t know me well enough and at the time we weren’t that close. But to me it was awesome because of the way the vision played out in her mind during her prayer time, and how it connected to the other visions that had been seen, saying similar. God knows I was in shock and I believe that was the final confirmation I needed to show me that really this is what I am called to do and I need to accept it rather than hold back.
Another friend spoke to me about a similar vision by then I was fully convinced that I knew what I had to do and even though I hesitated, God made sure those around me whether close to me or not would interpret the same message to me. God can use anyone or anything to send you a message He is God and knows best not us.
What I love about my calling is that it came after stages in my life that I thought I would never overcome and in the midst of it all still helped people with what they were facing and dealt with mine behind closed doors. I am not one to open up to people and tend to handle my issues alone until I began to get the courage to open up more to God and to the closest people around me. God saw all this and my passion for helping others and with my last experience especially which I will share, He laid the ministry upon my heart to say ‘Lisa you have fought the race and won that experience almost finished you, but you got back up, stronger than ever and did not stay defeated, my daughter I am proud..’
Ministry for women to me is the greatest, Im soo passionate about helping others especially women who can relate to all Ive been through, who want to know God more, are deep in bondage and don’t know what to do and then others who want to continually live right by God and work on their relationship with God daily. Whoever you are God is saying once you know Him, and choose to follow Him alone, you are coming out of that tough situation onto bigger and better and nothing can keep you down. Not man, not managers, not family members, not friends or whoever may be trying to bring you down.
Ladies this ministry is for all of you, a ministry where we all come together to pray and continually support and encourage others, work on ourselves to be the best proverbs 31 wife and mother but most importantly to fulfil our purpose here on earth before we go to our eternal homes in Heaven.
FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
As women we go through a lot and through womanhood there are various changes, what makes ministry really special to me is that as sisters in Christ we can all relate to what the other is going through and can advise and help each other. There is always going to be someone who can relate to your issues and there to offer their time and support to help you through. So far the love, prayers and support has just been soo special, amazing and overwhelming to experience and adapt to. God bless you all and thank you, it’s helping women all over and I thank God for what He is doing.
GOD IS GOOD HIS MERCIES ENDURETH FOREVER, I WAS AFFLICTED AND BATTERED LEFT RIGHT AND CENTRE, I HAD NO HOPE AND LOST FOCUS AND FELL OFF TRACK AND IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL HE RESCUED ME. POLISHED ME OVER AND GAVE ME ANOTHER CHANCE AND WITH THAT CHANCE CAME THE MINISTRY. PRAISE BE TO THE MOST HIGH.
