Think YOU! On this International Womens Day

The Pastor's Wife: Think YOU! on this International Womens Day

Yes, Think You!  Don't you dare give yourself a second thought. You have given so much of yourself to family, friends, colleagues etc. Its time to Think of YOU!  There is nothing wrong with putting yourself first for a change and just letting go of everyone else's stuff.

You are not being s.e.l.f.i.s.h.  You are just paying attention to s.e.l.f. Go for it!

Take a Walk...
Have a Cup of Tea for One - that's you...
Eat a slice of chocolate cake for breakfast, lunch and supper - Yippee hooray for YOU!

Have a  Think YOU... day!

The Pastor's Wife:The Power of the front row seat!

Its somehow become an expectation that the Pastor's Wife always sits in the power of the front row seat. The power of the front row seat should not be underestimated as just a seat in the front row.  It comes with many advantages and disadvantages. The first advantage is, it gives you accessibility to things  compared to someone else that will never have the opportunity to sit in the power of the front row seat.  It takes a special person who has a calling upon her life to sit in this powerful front row seat.  A Pastor's Wife understands and works within that accountability and power of the front row seat. It is indeed not easy to sit in the front row seat.

You are welcome to share your thoughts of what kinds of accessibility there is!

Be blessed!

The Pastor's Wife: A joyful heart is a peaceful life!

The Pastor's Wife: A joyful heart is a peaceful life!

A joyful heart always brings a smile to someone else
A joyful heart always brings out the best in others
A joyful heart always seeks to mend broken hearts
A joyful heart always speaks of kindness
A joyful heart is always creative
A joyful heart never rejoices in the hurts of others
A joyful heart is a peaceful life!

Romans 15:13. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Pastor's Wife: So, you don't like your Pastor's Wife?

It's not that you don't like your Pastor's Wife, its more to do with your Understanding of how God is working in you to rid yourself from a deep self, so that God can  fill you with HIS presence, because He loves you that much. The impact of being full of dislike of other people leads to more negative emotions and it ultimately leads you to bitterness.

Spend time with your Pastor's Wife and you will realise that there is so much more to her than what you think.  As much challenges as you have in your life, so does the Pastor's Wife.

The Pastor's Wife is funny, she loves to laugh, she loves people, she gives so much of her time to everybody.

So, the next time you see your Pastor's Wife, just give her a hug!

The Pastor's Wife: Her Battles!

Please Pray for her to be comforted in Word:

Psalm 119:28,52
My soul melteth for heaviness:strengthen thou me according unto thy Word" (v28)

"When I think of your rules from of old, I take comfort, O Lord." (v52)

The Pastor's Wife would very often hesitate to do the things that she is called by God to do. She has an inward battle that she fights everyday. She is human after all.

Its not easy for her to find someone to talk to. She does not share all of who she is as a person. She does not share all of her dreams. She takes care with whom she shares her funny, happy, sad and profound moments. She shares only her deepest moments with one person she trusts. She faces many challenges in her marriage, with her children and in her ministry and/or secular work.

Yet, she freely gives of her time, gifts, talent and skills to those whom she loves and knows.  She yearns to see others succeed. She is there when others fail and she encourages and lifts their spirit forward.

The Pastor's Wife: Regrets

Regrets will always take you back to the past.

If you forget, then your circumstances, people, family and friends will subtly remind you.

Its sad to think, there will always be more people criticising you than encouraging you!

Don't sit on your pain of regrets.

Don't nurture it. Don't love it!

Don't depend on it to make you feel alive.

Don't give it more attention than your future.

Its up to you what you learn from your regrets going forward.

The Pastor's Wife: She is a gift
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14

She was created...

Fearfully meaning: exceptionally, extremely, exceedingly, remarkably, uncommonly, extraordinarily, incredibly, most, very, really, immensely, thoroughly, positively, decidedly...

Wonderfully meaning:  a miracle, a marvel, excites or calls forth wonder...

She already comes prepared with amazing abilities and gifts. Her gifts are meant to be of service to God's people, and yet some of the people choose not to receive and appreciate her.

God, Jehovah Jireh, the Giver of the Gift did not forget as to why He sent the Pastor's Wife to serve His people.

Think YOU! On this International Womens Day

The Pastor's Wife: Think YOU ! on this International Womens Day Yes, Think You!  Don't you dare give yourself a second thought. Yo...
