Intentionally & Wonderfully Made
Do you KNOW how PRECIOUS, VALUED, DESIRED AND BELOVED YOU are in God's eyes?
Long before God laid down earth's foundations, he had YOU in mind, had settled on YOU as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. -Ephesians 1:4
Our deep desire is to be loved unconditionally, to be seen, to be known for who we really are, to be valued, esteemed, desired, pursued, fought for, to be precious to someone, to be their beloved, the object of their affection. Our hearts are DESIGNED for this by God. -Robin Thompson
Intentionally & Wonderfully Made
Ladies, the King is enthralled by your beauty! YOU are intentionally & wonderfully made by your loving Creator to uniquely reflect His beauty to the broken world. The busyness and craziness of this world tramples your beauty, unless you decide everyday to take care of your hearts, minds, souls and bodies. Step out of feeling unseen, unsought and uncertain and step into knowing you are INTENTIONALLY & WONDERFULLY MADE!
What an incredible day as Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 brought 1 Samuel 25 alive, encouraging us to crave God's Word and presence, reminding us that God is good because God is good at being God. Beverly Weeks shared that even when life is crazy, we can believe and say that all is well, and Sherry Jennings challenged us to be real, be settled, be a friend, and be convinced that we are enough.
The Matt Bartlett Band led us in worship to kick the day off, after lunch, and again to send us home changed.
Fashion & Compassion invited us into their mission to to connect women who are overcoming poverty and injustice with HOPE and a future for themselves and their children by connecting them with God and to western markets where they can sell their beautiful products. They connected you to these stunning accessories as well as to the women who make them and educate you about the issues that these women are overcoming.
Chick Fil A Goldsboro entertained and served their signature lunch to 1300 people in 20 minutes- WOW! We so appreciate operator Russell Wade and his heart for the Goldsboro community.
