International Women’s Day- Spotlight on a New Blogger

Today is International Women’s Day which is celebrated in many countries. I would like to wish my followers and readers who are women a Happy Women’s Day.

There are so many wonderful examples of women being blessed in the bible. I often think about Mary Magdalene who Jesus rescued from a life as an outcast. He blessed her with being the first person to see him after his resurrection and giving her the responsibility to go tell the others.

Each morning I am blessed as I teach a group of moms English. I am proud of them and impressed with them as they take time from their busy lives as moms to learn English, so they can help their children.

A new blogger I follow is Alejandra of alejandrafong.wordpress.com. She shared in her post What Makes a Woman, A Woman? some wonderful thoughts. One is that woman is the only being referred to as helper besides the Holy Spirit. That is good company to be in.

As co-image bearers of God, women should be valued and treated with dignity.

So to all of my followers and readers who are women and to the women whose blogs I follow, Happy International Women’s Day. 🙂

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Sharing about Chronic Illness and Depression/Anxiety-1 Year Later

It was about a year ago that I felt led to start sharing about my experience of living with chronic illness and the resulting depression/anxiety because of chronic illness. I wasn’t sure what would happen or how it would be received. But I knew God wanted me to share in hopes of helping others along the lines of what Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 1:

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 

I will never forget how the pastors at church responded when I shared with them about my struggle with depression.anxiety. The pastor who I am accountable to said, :It’s medical Matt, You don’t need to resign your ministry.”

My desire is to continue to touch lives with the love of Jesus by continuing to share my experience with chronic illness and depression.anxiety. I have felt so blessed that not only did I not lose followers on my blog, but actually my blog has grown considerably since I started to share. I am so thankful for all those who follow my blog, comment, and like my posts. It encourages me to continue to share.

I want to share a video with you today by a beautiful young lady who shared the positives of living with chronic illness. I won’t tell you what she said. I don’t want to spoil it for you. I hope her video blesses you like it did me.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

 

Remembering Jesus Empowers Women- Happy International Women’s Day

IMG_1930

I bought the Win Like A Girl poster to put in my classroom for my morning class. I like the message behind it that girls can be winners with pictures of balls from different sports in the background. My hope is to empower the moms in my class and also to help them imagine possibilities for their daughters here in America. The moms have been through difficult times in life and I want to see them rise above their hardships.

Today is International Women’s Day. On this day I often think about how Jesus empowered women when he was on earth and continues to empower women daily throughout the world.

A great example of Jesus empowering women is Mary Magdalene. She was an outcast in society which we would understand from the fact that Jesus delivered from seven demons thus bringing healing to her life. There are no details about her life other than being delivered from seven demons, but one can easily understand her life got a whole lot better when Jesus came along.

Jesus bestowed a great honor on Mary Magdalene. She was allowed to be the first to see Jesus after his resurrection. She had stood at the cross during his crucifixion. A few days later, she was the first to see him after he was raised from the dead. Jesus gave her a task to go tell the others including the men that Jesus had risen from the dead.

For all of eternity, Mary Magdalene will be known as the first person to see Jesus after his resurrection. Her story can give hope to women in any situation. She went from outcast with seven demons troubling her to being part of Jesus’s inner circle of followers because Jesus came along one day and healed her.

This morning in my class we will celebrate the achievements of the moms. They have overcome many obstacles in their lives and continue to try to make a better life for their children. I started my day praying for them, their families, and their needs. My hope is to follow the example of Jesus and empower the women in my class.

Happy International Women’s Day 🙂

Thank you for reading. God Bless.
