You live in that place where it is supposed to be safe. You create a sense of safety for others, but few (if any) can offer it back to you.
You take your strength from Jesus. You are utterly dependent upon Him.
Even so, at times you feel overwhelmed, isolated or weary.
You long for communion with other sold out, blood bought Women Warriors walking this journey of a life for Christ.
Women Warriors serve Jesus in many ways: Pastor, Pastor’s Wife, Ministry Leader, Business Owner, Life Coach.
We are sold out, blood bought Women Warriors of Christ with our eyes set on Jesus whom we follow no matter the cost. Along the way we battle for others in prayer, in exhortation and encouragement. We often carry scars from the attacks of those we have served.
We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. (2 Corinthians 4: 8-10)
Women Warriors are often isolated even when surrounded by many. There are few we can be brutally honest with, and even fewer on whom we can can rely on to hold us accountable, challenge us, to call us into the deeper things of God.
Women Warriors are surrounded by many who either idolize us, or find fault in all we do. It seems there are hardly any who see us as simply women with a heart on fire for the Kingdom of God.
Women Warriors need support in a safe context. We need a circle of sisters to keep us accountable, to walk with us when we are overwhelmed, to be a listening ear, to hold us up when we are weary, and to spur us on to all God has created us to be. We need a place to be healed, connected, and empowered.
Spiritual Vistas has been called to create a place of healing, restoration, empowerment for Women Warriors for Jesus. There will be changes in the current website to reflect the changes. The counselling website will be moved to a new domain. In order to learn more sign up for my Women’s Warriors Newsletter
