First Meeting Recap

Leave a comment

For those of you who weren’t able to make our first meeting, I thought I would post a brief recap of Pastor Abel’s devotional message. He spoke on “Be You Bravely”, starting with how we can “Bravely” overcome our fears of failure, criticism and the unknown by remembering that Jesus is in control of our destiny (future) and that we can give our children to Him. He talked about “You” from the perspective of where we find our identity and how words of affirmation from the world come and go and will never be enough for us. We need to find our identity in Christ–something that can never be taken away.  And lastly, he spoke about the “Be” in “Be You Bravely”.  More than human BE-ings, we seem to be human DO-ings.  As moms, we all feel the pressures of long to-do lists, hectic schedules, and busy lives. Instead of getting stuck in the ‘work-so-you-can-rest’ cycle, we need to abide in Christ and find time to spend with God first in order to be more fruitful.

It was a great message to kick off our MOPS year!
