A Sisterly Faith That Serves

The women of Calvary Chapel Beaumont studied the book of James this summer. Today was our last teaching. The worship was awesome. God chose just the right songs for today, and the Holy Spirit was heavy in the sanctuary. Thank you, Worship Team.

If you only want the teaching, scroll to 20 minutes and about 26 seconds.

We refocused from the earthly to the heavenly.

We considered how to have a sisterly faith that serves.

I pray that you will be blessed.

After you watch the teaching, return to this post and let me know how I can pray for you.

Please share.

I spent time in 1 John this morning. I typically spend time in my NASB Study Bible, but I wanted to compare. I pulled out my Scofield Bible.

I got distracted.

Blessed beyond measure.

Come and listen, all you who fear God,
and I will tell you what he did for me.
For I cried out to him for help,
praising him as I spoke.
Psalm 66:16-17

There is no cure for fibromyalgia.

Brain fog, pain, fatigue, and depression plagued me for about 15 years.

Pills for pain, pills for sleep, pills to wake me up, pills to counteract the effects of the other pills, and handfuls of supplements filled my days and nights.

The work that I thought God had placed before me demanded too much from me, and my doctor encouraged me to resign.

One Saturday, I told God that I must have misunderstood His direction and that I would resign that Monday.
