WidowLife Ministry Update

How are we caring for the widow and fatherless?

Perspective Ministries is now 11 months old! I am still pinching myself that the vision is at the appointed time. God has allowed us to accomplish so much; however, each day we realize there is so much to do. Just think about it – there are 21,000 widows in Atlanta! The good news is God is using you to make a difference.

Because of your investment, WidowLife was able to care for the widow helping to Light Her World in the following ways: Continue Reading

The God Account

What if . . .

You began to believe that there really is a “God Account?”  This would mean that, by faith, you would begin to take  God at His word.  For years people have made efforts to invest in the right account whether in the stock market or in other investments offering great interest and gain.  Imagine how God could be glorified if we began to see, take and make opportunities to invest in the God Account He has already established.

In Luke 18:22 God says, “Sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor and you shall have treasure in heaven.”  What if we knew the day and hour that He was to return?   What if His return were in 25 days?  What would you do different?  Would you be willing to change your investments to those that are lasting?  Would you consider transferring funds from the accounts that you can see to those that cannot be seen – to your “God Account?”

Allow God to challenge you to: “Test Me now in this, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes, says the LORD of hosts.”   Malachi 3:10

LIGHT in a Dark Season for the Widow

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas or at least it is at Hobby Lobby and every other department store in town.  Many families make their way to the pumpkin patch while Michael Bublé sings Baby it’s cold outside sending a chill to the core of your heart.

Whether this is your first Christmas without someone to kiss under the mistletoe or you’ve spent years singing I’ll have a Blue Christmas Without You, the holidays have potential for teary eyes and tender emotions.

“He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.” Job 8:21 Joy and laughter will come again; however, in the meantime attempt to insert some laughter and joy in your season of pain. Consider the following to bring light into your dark season:

The Body of Christ: God’s Glitter Band-aid

When our greatest fears and nightmares become realities

“I’m sick and I’m coming home,” was the cry of my husband of seven years and father to our four small children on the other end of the phone. As I awaited his return, I felt God whisper, “Your greatest fear has been realized.”  Upon his arrival, I learned that he had been unfaithful to me in our marriage, and was sicker than we ever imagined.  God spoke to me again saying, “This will be a transition time, but it will be for your good and My glory.
