Moving Forward

Do you remember looking at lists of ‘stressors’ and seeing your problems? Life happens. “Yes.” It is there. It’s OK to be upset or almost unglued, because ours is a common and real problem. That was yesterday. But here we are today, a widow. (I still don’t like the word.) Numb, puzzled, vulnerable, sad, frightened, angry, yet laughing at things most don’t find so funny.

Resources

We inform, encourage, and equip widows. We provide books, DVD¹s, Journals, CD¹s, radio podcasts, church resources and tools, spiritually based and practical. Internationally we provide skill training for widows for economic independence.

God’s choices # 2

January 22, 2019

God choses people in ways that puzzle us.  Needy widows in Scripture are often the recipients of God’s grace and provision beyond imagination.   In I Kings 17, God chooses to rescue a pagan widow from starvation through Elijah.  In II Kings 4 God chooses a jewish widow, widow of a prophet and saves her children from slavery due to their dad’s accumulated debt.   King David wed 2 widows:  Abagail and Bathsheba.  Abagail widowed because God took Nabal’s life.  Bathsheba widowed because David murdered her husband, Uriah. Widows Tamar, Ruth, Naomi and many more: their circumstances extreme, misunderstood, even […]
