Let me take you back to before there was any news of a movie coming out. This was long before the launch of our Wonder Women Bible study. At this time it was only a plan in the heart and mind of God. So much of the unforeseen journey brought me to a night during a series of revival meetings that changed the direction of my life tremendously. I had learned to accept Women's ministry as my call from the Lord but this night I gave my heart to the Lord's purpose for me. I surrendered to a call to raising up His Warrior Daughters. I partnered with the Lord to see them set free and completely restored. I fell in love with the plans that He had in mind for His beloved daughters.
It was the second night during the revival meetings in May of 2015 that things that things became much clearer for me. We had just had a powerful first night and we were all back for more of what the Lord had for us. We heard a powerful word from the prophet of God that was sent to stir up the flock. It was at this time that I had obeyed the Lord and stepped down from leading a women's bible study locally that was called His Warrior Princesses. Our host was relocating and the Lord had told me that this season was over. He had shut the doors in preparation for what was to come.
There I was caught up in His presence asking the Lord what I was to do next. Where would I go to connect with other women now? There were no weekly women's gathering at the church that He had sent me to and I loved gathering with women to study. How was I to grow closer to Him and others at the same time? Those days in His word and presence were something I both enjoyed and needed. "Lord, now what?"
At that moment of the night, the Prophet visiting said "I want you to know that God wants you to know your purpose. Believe that God wants you to know it. If you feel called by the Lord, I want you to run up here to the front right now." Let me just tell you the alter that night filled up fast! I don't think there was one of us that didn't go to the front to hear from the Lord that night. It was truly a night to remember!
I ran up and fell to my knees. I was desperate to hear from the Lord about my next season. I wanted to know why He had me traveling week after week for more than an hour to be at this specific place. Sometimes it was almost midnight before the kids and I would get home after our late night Friday Fire meetings at that time. "Lord, why am I here? 'What am I doing and is this truly what you want me to do?" That's when He showed me and I'll never forget it. First, very clearly I saw two yellow letters on top of each other. It was the letter W. I did not what that meant at the time he had showed me. you have to understand that I didn't grow up watching Wonder Woman. I watched She-Ra! Then the Lord spoke to me as He continued to show me other things. "You will start a women's ministry here." He continued to tell me that it was to be called Wonder Women. He spoke to me about how we would be living in His wonders in such a way that we reach out beyond ourselves to reach and rescue His lost and hurting daughters everywhere. That through our love and service they would come to know this wonderful life that we live in Him. We were His wonders in goodness, power, and love. I looked out and could see massive meetings with women out as far as my eyes could see. I did not understand all that He was saying to me at the time because it was not yet time to know. Oh, but I do know now!
That night left me breathless and in awe of Him. Of course! He had sent me to a church that did not have a weekly women's group to start one. It is true that when one door closes a greater one opens. I had thought that I was to move to Fort Worth and start a new Bible study in the home I would move into but God had something better in mind. He had a movement in his heart and a group of women called to usher it in together. I didn't rush to tell someone what the Lord had shown me but rather kept it in my heart until His perfect time. What is born of God cannot be stopped and there is a timing that only He will know of. After all, we still had a big challenge and battles to face to get to the land where this was to come to pass. I had no idea the obstacles that awaited my family and I on the way to our new home in Fort Worth, Texas. It didn't matter that the enemy said no or that our circumstances even said no. The only thing that mattered was that God had already told me yes and showed me the work to be done through my life. I held on to that promise no matter what my eyes could see. This battle would train me to trust His voice and word alone. What God promises He will fulfill.
I'll tell you more about the battles, purpose, and movement next time. It's already here and it has only just begun. Be encouraged Women of God because the Lord has you on His mind and in His heart. He has set you apart and marked you for His glory. Your weeping is turning to great joy. Your hearts and lives will be completely restored. The enemy will have to pay you back with restitution. Your greatest hour has come and you will arise into your purpose and destiny. What a wonder you will be!
We are so excited to announce the launch of our public facebook page titled Wonder Women. Go and like us! Here we will be gathering together to grow in Him to fulfill our purpose. You will have access to our live stream Bible studies, blog, and other video content we will be sharing on our new page. The time is now! So lets rise up and do great exploits in His name and for His glory!
O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them. Psalm 40:5 NLT
