Anita on FIRE!

Anita on fire!

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending Greater Macedonia’s first Women’s Conference where, Anita was the keynote speaker. Riding on the conference’s theme, “Women Destined for Purpose,” and coming from 2 Timothy 1:6-10, Anita’s topic was “The Answer to Your Why.”  Anita had already done an outstanding job exegeting the text when she shut the house down singing “You Brought Me From A Mighty Long Way!”

I jotted down several inspiring notes from her sermon. One challenge she gave the audience I’d like to share with you in reference to DISTRACTIONS- “We don’t need to answer everything that’s calling us.”

You can catch Anita preaching this Sunday, 10 a.m. at St. Mark. See flier already posted.

Godly Gals was a ministry formed over a year ago. After holding only two meetings all ministry activities ceased at the request of the senior pastor of my church. During the year, Roline sought the Lord for direction and clarity in regards to the Godly Gals.

Out of the ashes of the extinguished Godly Gals was birthed a new name and new direction. No longer will this ministry only minister to “preachers”. We have expanded our service to benefit any women who is serious about building the Kingdom of God. With a new focus came a new name.

Jesus said to “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in heaven.”  We are called to be light shiners, shining in all we do. We are now F.L.A.M.E.S., an inextinguishable fire burning with a passion for God.
We are the Fathers Learners Anointed to Minister with Excellent Service!

The mission, plans, etc. of the ministry were presented. You may email Roline for the handouts.  Participants were asked to pray about becoming a part of F.L.A.M.E.S. To sum it up, FLAMES desire to not only assist you in your walk with the Lord, but also to provide mentoring, training, support, and opportunities to help you fulfill your purpose and role in your home, church, and community.

TS blessed us with a song.

We will actually began the work of this ministry during the next meeting to be held August 12, 2011, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the home of Roline Thomas. Future meetings and events will also be held at other venues.

Never Unpack Your Bags. Article will appear on the site.
The meeting was closed with a powerful prayer by Odette Woods.

Proverbs 18:21a - Death and life are in the power of the tongue.
TV One’s  “Unsung” is a documentary program which  profiles music acts who were once major influences in the prime only to have their careers derailed by misfortune and crisis. Last night’s episode featured legendary singer and musician Billy Preston who died in 2006. His then manager who witnessed his death gave an account of his final moment. She recalled, “He was laying on his side trying to gasp for air, and I said Bud you got to relax.” Billy Preston uttered, “I CAN’T” and coded.
Preston’s final two words were “I CAN’T.”  For believers of Christ, “I CAN’T” are killer words. They kill dreams, ministries, marriages, friendships, and opportunities.  When a Christian declares “I CAN’T”, he accepts mediocrity and minimizes the power within.  There are those, spiritual serial killers, who habitually use killer words. Don’t allow negative attitude and speech of spiritual assassinators to infiltrate your mind.
Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  Through the direction of the Holy Spirit and Word of God, F.L.A.M.E.S. Ministry is dedicated to providing you with a wealth of empowering & insightful information, challenges, opportunities and suggestions that will take your calling/purpose to another level in Christ. BELIEVE you can MEET the STANDARD set by God. Speak life over your situation. Your words can invoke the resurrecting power of Christ.  I CAN be the SERVANT God called me to be. SPEAK it. BELIEVE it. DO IT! Don't allow "I CAN'T" kill your purpose! Speak life over yourself!

FLAMES meetings are held the 2nd Friday of each month, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. The next meeting is Aug. 12th at Roline's home. I will be sending info by email to those who missed the last meeting with more specific info about FLAMES.

Godly Gals SERVING

Sonya & Roline volunteered to serve with The Impact Zone (TIZ) Ministry for their first ever "FREEDOM FEAST." Partnering with the Salvation Army, TIZ served grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, Roline's baked beans, chips, and punch to the homeless. So many people came through the doors looking for a meal. We had a blast!


Roline and Sonya break to pose for a pic:
