What Happens When Women Testify?

Original Poem by Shawn:

Power is unleashed by the Spirit of the Lord,

Emotions are unshackled;

Tears Fall;

Chests rise and fall with heaves and sobs of release;

Hands up in the air, waving and praising!

Hearts Encouraged and Lifted Up!

Great power is unleashed when we magnify the Lord! To magnify means to make large. We make Him large in the minds of people by talking about Him to others of His exploits on our behalf. Testifying to others of what Jesus has done for us pleases Him.

I had the opportunity this evening to listen to Theresa Dozier-Daniel, author, speaker and psychologist, giving a seminar titled┬ábeing the “CEO of Your Life”. She spoke about how we are who we are and where we are because of our thinking. Daniels suggests that to move from our current position to the next phase God has for us, we need to shift our current paradigms. By changing our thinking about ourselves and seeing our surroundings in the light of God’s Word, we can literally transform our lives.

The women testified at the end of the program in answer to the audience participation question “What visions do you have that the Lord has shown you about your purpose and passions?” In sum, each woman who testified told of how the Lord molds the good and the bad experiences into a power packed message for His glory.

He shapes and directs us along the pathway that He has designed especially for us as individuals made for His honor. We can use our hurts, our bad experiences as a platform to help others. The encouragement was contagious as each woman shared and testified of the Lord’s care for them!

As the women elaborated on their journeys the Lord’s fame grew and grew. Is there anything too hard for our God? (Genesis 18:14) No, not at all. We just have to trust Him and allow Him to lead us.

I’m excited about the journey along the path God has designed for me!
