Women Need Women

I find it funny how I chose my Word of the Year and then I get word that I might be sick.

Crazy how that happens.

My Word of the Year is "New Life" and my problems are in my female reproductive system.

I know I am not planning on having any more children.  I know I said that the "New Life" was a matter of the heart, relationships...growth.  I just think it is too strange that this is all happening at once.  Maybe I am looking too deep at the meaning of it all but I have chuckled a time or two at the timing.

This morning as I was reading some of the blogs that I look at almost everyday, I realized something...
women need other women.  We need to hear their thoughts, dreams, struggles, victories, stories...we need each others hearts.

I have been preparing for our Women Empowered Conference.  I will be speaking at one service and guess what, this is my first time speaking at a conference.  Sure, I give "speeches" in church all the time, I have taught children, teens and even adults in church, but, this is a new one for me.  Our theme is Beyond Beautiful (thank you Pastor Richard Hilton).  I have prepared, thus far, two messages...WHAT?!  Yup, two messages.  The theme for each message is kind of the same but the path is different.  OH MY GOSH!!!!  I know, I need to really see where God is wanting me to go here.

That is where my support system comes in.  I have a few seasoned ladies that I sent a text to asking for prayer about speaking what God has for the ladies.  I received great encouragement from all of them.  I tell ya, this is where I see New Birth for Kimberly Hope VanDyke.  It's where God is taking me down this new path, birthing a new fire within me.  Strengthening my friendships and even birthing new ones, strong, ordained by God for my benefit and for the benefit of Christ the King Church.

Looks like a broken shell...now you can really see the
beauty inside

I am so excited to see how God is going to pull it all together.  I am willing to do what He wants, I have great support and I know He will be with me through it all.

I pray you have a great day and know that God is with you.  Reach out to your girlfriends, encourage them today, share your heart and laugh together.  I love my man and he is my heart but I see my need for my girlfriends.

This is my season for grace, for favor.
This is my season to reap what I have sown.

Everything is working together for my good
Everything is working together for my good

It's good, It's good, It's good,
God is working for my good.
