Doors Unlocked – Journey Women’s Event
We never have to worry or wonder if God will show up when we choose to make time for Him. 111 women chose to take a Saturday morning and just be surrounded by His love and grace.
I know that faith was restored, friendships made and prayers requested and received. Linda Buckle gave a beautiful and empowering message about 5 things she wished she could go back and tell her younger self. It’s so important for all of us to realize that we can change at any point. Her advice and suggestions applied to so many different walks in life at any age. We are never too old or broken or stuck to learn.
The church gave each woman a key necklace to take home; this gift has two meanings. When Bekah started praying about the brunch early in the year, something symbolizing family kept coming to her. Someone suggested a key necklace and she loved it. The key on the necklace represents a key to our family’s house – the church. Every woman belongs to this church and the key represents that we take ownership in that. We are all here to help each other and to support one another. The women of Journey are a family of faith.
Awhile later, Pastor Shawn preached about three things God told him that our church would be doing and one of those was that He would give us a key to a new door. It was as if God was confirming that the key necklaces would be an important part of the brunch and that He intended to use it to open doors. The door could be a calling, an anointing, an experience, a future or a perspective; every woman’s door might be different and we’d love to hear what door you feel God has opened for you as a result of this experience.
If you didn’t receive a key necklace (or weren’t able to be at the brunch), additional ones have been ordered and we would love to get you one.
Lastly, we would love to thank everyone who helped bring this brunch from an idea to a reality. So many women (and men) contributed from setting up, baking, ministering, inviting and leading that a huge thank you to everyone is necessary.
Women of Journey, the spark has been kindled and God is ready to provide the flames if you are willing to walk through that door. Are you ready to take the first step?
