Women’s Ministry

It is an exciting time here at Abundant Life for our Women’s Ministry. We aim to provide women with a solid foundation of prayer, Bible study and discipleship. Our goal is to provide woman with relationships and opportunities in order to have a vibrant life in Christ.
 
  • Women’s Bi-monthly Small Group We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month! The group meets in the main church building. If you have questions about the group, or are interested in attending, let us know! Or feel free to just show up, all are welcome! The women’s small group is studying Life Lessons from Philippians by Max Lucado.
 
  • Women’s Grow and Serve Group Women meeting the first Tuesdays of each month from 10 am – 12 noon in the church lounge. In addition to growing godly relationships with one another, we will also have opportunities to serve others through various easy and enjoyable projects like sending cards to shut-ins and those in the hospital.

Do Not Lean on Your Own Understanding

Read part 1 first, Trust In The Lord.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

 

Don’t Lean on Your Understanding

The verse involves a positive–something you must do. But it also involves a negative–something you must not do. Don’t lean on your own understanding. Basically, the verse is telling us that we ought not to be self-reliant. We cannot pursue a course of action, a financial decision, a business move, a relationship, or an educational choice, simply based on our own understanding. It must be founded in our trust in God.

Self-reliance is such a deceptive trap. We begin to pride ourselves in something–our savvy, our looks, our intellect, our spirituality, our family, whatever. And when we do, it takes away our trust in the Lord. It has become trust in self. The result is a dangerous compromise that will lead to destruction.

Trust in The Lord

It’s simple. It’s short. Yet it’s incredibly powerful. Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of the most familiar passages in the Bible–with good reason. It sets forth a life-changing truth that is worthy of our attention. Spend three minutes reading this article, and see if you agree.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Trust in the Lord.

It starts with trust. Any real relationship has to start with some level of trust. It’s the only way a friendship will endure. It’s the only way a marriage will work out. It’s the simple reason why an employer hires workers, or why the workers stay employed. It’s all about trust. Trust in the Lord, however, takes on an entirely new dimension. This is our trust in an eternal, all-powerful, all-wise, all-loving God. He is worthy of our trust. The trust is important, not just because of who God is, but because of the way in which we must trust him: with all your heart. It involves every fiber of your being. That’s the kind of trust we can have in God–a complete, unshakable, deep, abiding trust.
