In Isaiah 43:19, God tells Israel, “Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” This verse is a great banner verse over what the Lord is doing in the lives of our women at Living Hope. We have experienced huge blessing and growth in the Women’s Ministry. We have never seen so many women come with such consistency to our in-house group, and we have a strong contingent online. In April we had the pleasure of attending a women’s conference called “Restored for Women,” where we heard many testimonies of God’s redemption in the lives of broken women.
In June we will have more women attend the Exodus Freedom Conference than ever before. In truth, there has never been a better time to be a woman at Living Hope, as we have seen women blossom and grow in the Lord and in camaraderie with one another. God is tearing down strongholds, working inner healing, and setting women free. They are growing into the women God has called them to be slowly and surely as they mature and grow in Christ. Not content to remain in bondage, sin, or victimization, women are standing firm, struggling well, and walking into their redemption in Christ Jesus. We are blessed to have so many women who are such a delight and love the Lord as they do. He truly is doing something new that is springing forth as a roadway in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. I am so blessed to see it everyday here at Living Hope!
