Sisterhood

Sisterhood

Sisterhood. Defined by the online dictionary as a relationship between sisters. A feeling of kinship with and closeness to a group of women. An association, society or community of women linked by a common interest, religion, or trade.

A few weeks have passed and my heart still aches for the senseless deaths witnessed by the world. It aches for those victims that have witnesses able to present their final story. But in my quiet space, I weep for those that are unknown and who have suffered.

History has shown that the subjugation, hatred, and violence against our fellow man is common place. Many have heard the phrase, ‘violence begets violence’. Our savior, Jesus, was hated, ridiculed, and suffered on the cross. On the day of His arrest, a disciple chopped the ear of a servant of the high priest. Jesus responded in Matthew 26:52, “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.” Luke 22:51 records that Jesus immediately touched his ear and healed him.

I hate injustice and bullies. I struggle with those who try to rule by fear and maliciousness. If I am not careful, that hate, mistrust and strong emotions can overtake the joy and purpose that God has for my life. It is easy to strike out in anger. It is much harder to pause, humble ourselves, and seek God’s wisdom and guidance.

My Prayer

I hope that my prayers for the sister, mother, wife, grandmother, aunt, friend, or soulmate of those who are being victimized will soothe the tide of anger and hopelessness. I pray that amid confusion, pain, worry and anger, that we will find peace.

As a sister in Christ, I pray for each of you that our bonds of sisterhood will strengthen. That people will see Jesus through our actions and love. We may never always say or do the right things, but may we seek Christ first.

Amen.

Have you ever been disappointed in God?

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
