Everyone has a story…Every journey has life lessons…Everyone has choices…
In John 4:28 we hear the beautiful story of the woman at Jacob’s well that Jesus intentionally met. He shared with her that what the world had to offer would never do. Then, (John 4:14) “But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again – ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life.” The disciples returned and were amazed He was talking to a woman and a Samaritan at that. She was an everyday woman, a broken woman who had suffered pain, shame and distain. Jesus revealed himself to her. She left her water jar, went into the town that had rejected her, and told the men (John 4:29) “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Messiah?” And they came!
God used a woman to spark a revival and change lives in her town when she went and told people about Jesus. There is power in our life story, too, especially now. In 1983 my life changed when I answered the intentional visit of Jesus Christ at my Samaritan well. A shattered life was gradually transformed into a healed life. In my 20s I was hopeless, lost, and desperate. At 33 I said ‘yes’ to Jesus. In my 40s I began sharing my testimony of God’s healing power and touch that pierced to the deepest hurt through women’s ministry. In my 50s and 60s marriage ministry doors opened as God used my husband and I to share God’s blueprint for marriage. And now in my 70s I see the place that God has prepared for a Deborah to sit under her tree and share the wisdom of God that he showers and continue to shout that ‘the well of living water springing up from him for eternal life’ has been mine and can be yours. The everyday woman is doing ordinary things extraordinarily for the glory of God! Praise Him!
These are the days that we need encouragement and a place to hear the stories. It is my heart that you are spurred on to the great things that God has planned for you, that you take some women with you on the journey ; to look up and look forward for what God is about to do! Each month there will be a story for you to enjoy that shares challenges as well as discoveries of the greatness of God’s love. You can sign up to receive these and I hope you will pass them along!
