Goals for Women's Ministry Leaders - Series

Teach women that circumstances may not always make us feel good; life is full of difficulties and complexities. Mary the mother of Jesus and Hannah from the book of 1 Samuel are examples meant to point us to God and adore him in his majesty. In their poetic songs, Mary and Hannah demonstrate not only what it means to adore God, but they show that adoration is necessarily coupled with a knowledge of God - what it means to call him 'Savior.' It means knowing who we are - or aren't - in the light of who God is. Adoring God means not elevating our selves through our issues of self-worth. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, then encouragement will be added unto you.
