Welcome to Women Under His Wings [WUHW's]

 

December 2014 

 

 

Women Under His Wings says Hello to you all.  WUHW’s is a ministry for the women of GOD, yet all are welcome to eat at GOD’s table. WUHW’s is non-denominational and dedicated to furthering the love and ministry of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” 

Isaiah 9: 6&7  King James Version

 

 

 December is here! Thanksgiving has allowed us to be with loved ones and friends, and now we look forward to the joy and meaning of Christmas. All do not celebrate the birth of the Christ child, for all do not know Him. Those who intimately dwell with Him in our hearts approach this holiday with anticipation of its praise, wonderment, and pageantry. I can remember watching Hallmark’s “Amahl and The Night Visitors” on Christmas Eve every year as a child, and I still enjoy this Christmas classic. There have been many versions produced and performed since this 1951 production. You can find many on Youtube. This is the version that still touches my heart at Christmas.

Winter has finally arrived with an early start. We went from summer immediately into winter, or so it appears. Snow has fallen several times as of late November, and my shovel and I have done diligent work here on the farm– not to mention engaging my friends and co-workers– salt and sand.  :)

 

 

 We have experienced the beauty and the drudgery of winter snow, yet, we are not in despair because when all of the conditions for nourishment, growth, and production are present once again, we will experience the delights of the growing season. The marvelous potential for growth and abundance will emerge from the barrenness of winter. We all go through abundant or dry seasons depending upon our circumstances and the opportunities that appear to exist or not exist.  We have the gift of choice which enables us to seek new horizons as opportunities come our way. If we can only remember who creates and governs the seasons, we can find peace to rest and learn in the midst of the dry times.

 

“Don’t be a worrier; be a warrior…fight the good fight, and remember that the battle is the LORD’s… You do not have to fight in your own strength.  Let Jesus take the wheel, he will steer you safely to places you would have never imagined could feed your spirit and inspire your heart to do service for The Kingdom.

Birth As Life: Luke 2: 1-19 NIV

Luke 2: 11,12 NIV  Christmas  2013/2014

 

 

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the LORD. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

 

 

The Birth of Christ is a scriptural truth known by most but not embraced by many. The Christmas Holiday has degraded over time into a pursuit of new technologies or toys. Many do not know that Christmas means “Christ’s Mass”– a covenant between Jesus and ourselves. He is “The Gift”. The world’s traditional gifts such as scarves, sweaters, and mittens still hang in there but have taken a back seat to tablets and smartphones. A desirable gift to me is still a book filled with treasures and truths. The ultimate book is The Holy Bible. Within its pages rests the history and spirit of a people and their GOD. Let us give praise for the birth of our Savior who came to repair the breach forged in the Garden of Eden–to bring GOD’s people back to Himself.

 

 

Let us rededicate ourselves to the fight for souls, and the filling of spirits. We know not the day nor the hour when Jesus the Christ will come back to earth to gather His Bride the Church unto Himself–but this we do know beyond earthly knowledge, for God’s Spirit dwells in us, that Jesus is coming back for those of us who have put ourselves in His ever loving care. This church lives in the hearts of men, women, and children all over the world, and is not exclusive to traditional four walled buildings.

 

 

There are some truths that speak for themselves. Mankind is trying to forget the birth of the baby Jesus in the manger, but truth will always exert over falsehood. This Christmas season should be a time for giving of ourselves and our Blessings. It is not about the commercialism, it is about the sacrifice.

 

 

Have A Wonderful Holiday Season.

 

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

 

 

Charlene

Thanksgiving Prayer

1 Chronicles 16: 8-12

 

 

Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name

Make known His deeds among the peoples!

Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;

Talk of all His wondrous works!

Glory in His Holy name;

Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!

Seek the Lord and His strength;

Seek his face evermore!

Remember His marvelous works which he has done,

His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth.

 

 

 

Abba Father,

 

 We have so much to thank you for. You have kept us through another year in which wonderful, as well as disastrous things, have happened. We are confident in you that we, as your people, will see more glorious days than these. It is only in drawing close to you through your Son Jesus Christ, and through your Holy Spirit that we are assured peace and comfort in the midst of life’s storms.

 

 

We are a people less sure of being able to trust this world than we were a year ago; but this also means that we are learning to trust you more with our lives and our hearts. Your Holy Spirit intercedes for us, and strengthens us.

 

 

As followers of Christ, we are eager to embrace those who do not know You. We are willing to carry out The Great Commission; to take your message of hope and salvation to hurting people all over this world. Please teach us to pray for one another in truth and sincerity; and to be willing to put aside our own needs to serve your people.

 

 

This season of Thanksgiving should be in our spirits at all times. We have something to thank you for each day. Taking time to look back upon the gracious mercies, healing, and provision you have given brings us joy unspeakable; and the knowledge that you are walking with each of us through our trials and hardships makes life easier to bear.

 

 

We thank You, Abba Father, for your readiness to hear and to forgive; for your great love to us in spite of our unworthiness; for the many blessings we enjoy above what we deserve, hope, or ask. You have been so good to us in our ingratitude, thoughtlessness, and forgetfulness of You. For your pity, long-suffering, gentleness and tenderness, we bow our heads in humble thankfulness of heart. We worship you Who are infinite love; infinite compassion, and infinite power.  Please accept our praise and gratitude through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

 

 

We your people look forward to a new world where the fullness of your peace will be revealed. Keep us watchful for that day when people of every race, language, and way of life will gather to share in the one eternal banquet with Jesus Christ our Lord. Father, through Him, with Him, and in Him, through the unity of the Holy Spirit, may all glory and honor be Yours, now and forevermore. Amen

Job 28: In Praise of Wisdom GNV

What is of more value than wisdom? We all strive throughout our lifespans to attain true wisdom, and just when we think that we have found it, we realize that there is more to seek, and more to learn. Ultimate wisdom is found in GOD, the Father of Lights, who illumines the path to total understanding.

Wisdom is a priceless commodity. As the scripture states, “Wisdom is not found among men; No one knows its true value”.  Job 28: 13

In Praise of Wisdom

 

 

28 There are mines where silver is dug;
There are places where gold is refined.
We dig iron out of the ground
And melt copper out of the stones.
Miners explore the deepest darkness.
They search the depths of the earth
And dig for rocks in the darkness.
Far from where anyone lives
Or human feet ever travel,
They dig the shafts of mines.
There they work in loneliness,
Clinging to ropes in the pits.
Food grows out of the earth,
But underneath the same earth
All is torn up and crushed.
The stones of the earth contain sapphires,
And its dust contains gold.
No hawk sees the roads to the mines,
And no vulture ever flies over them.
No lion or other fierce beast ever travels those lonely roads.

 

 

Miners dig the hardest rocks,
Dig mountains away at their base.
10 As they tunnel through the rocks,
They discover precious stones.
11 They dig to the sources of[rivers
And bring to light what is hidden.
12 But where can wisdom be found?
Where can we learn to understand?

 

 

13 Wisdom is not to be found among mortals;
No one knows its true value.
14 The depths of the oceans and seas
Say that wisdom is not found there.
15 It cannot be bought with silver or gold.
16 The finest gold and jewels
Cannot equal its value.
17 It is worth more than gold,
Than a gold vase or finest glass.
18 The value of wisdom is more
Than coral or crystal or rubies.
19 The finest topaz and the purest gold
Cannot compare with the value of wisdom.

 

 

Where, then, is the source of wisdom?
Where can we learn to understand?
21 No living creature can see it,
Not even a bird in flight.
22 Even death and destruction
Admit they have heard only rumors.

 

 

23 God alone knows the way,
Knows the place where wisdom is found,
24 Because he sees the ends of the earth,
Sees everything under the sky.
25 When God gave the wind its power
And determined the size of the sea;
26 When God decided where the rain would fall,
And the path that the thunderclouds travel;
27 It was then he saw wisdom and tested its worth—
He gave it his approval.

 

 

God said to us humans,
“To be wise, you must have reverence for the Lord.
To understand, you must turn from evil.”

Simon Cowell Made Fun of This Gospel Singer – Then Everyone is Blown Away

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

2 Timothy 3 NIV

2 Timothy 3

New International Version (NIV)

 

 

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

 

 

They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

 

 

A Final Charge to Timothy

 

 

10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a]may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Prayers are Answered and Miracles are Real

Matthew 11: 23-24

 

 

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them!”

 

 

I just wanted to post this tremendous prayer warrior’s testimony via the Grace Prayer Community Ministry. We are inspired when others share their God ordained experiences with us, and acknowledge the intercessors who prayed. Many of us can relate to Sherri’s symptoms and even to her deliverance.

Thank You, Lord, for answered prayers for Sherri. We give You all the praise and glory!!!! We pray with her in agreement for continued healing in her life in every area. We believe in Your Word and in Mark 11:22-24, that says to call out to our mountain (name it) to be thrown into the sea and to believe and not doubt and it will be done and that we have received it and it will be ours. We thank You God for Your Word we can believe by faith that it will be done no matter what we see, feel or hear in the natural, to keep claiming and believing even when fear from the enemy tries to discourage us, that speaking and hearing the Word of God will bring faith to believe and know You want us healed and by Your stripes we are healed and we will stand waiting for the complete manifestation that is happening to us. AMEN

-Char

Sherri: Thank you for your inspirational thoughts today. You are an inspiration to all that wonder if God really does heal. If he really does answer prayer. I agree with you and with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ that the completion of Gods works in your body are already so, but your body has simply not caught up to it in the natural. You are completely healed through his strips and his blood. In the mighty name of Jesus Amen.

 

-Geoffrey

Praise the Lord! Amen!

-desiree

 

 

thank God, God is good, prayers do help!

-Fannie

 

 

In a time when people doubt the effectiveness of prayer and the answers that GOD can provide, this is a wonderful testimony of His power to save and heal. I pray that Sherri will receive even more Blessings in the Name of Jesus and that there will soon be another praise report coming our way. Charlene
