God has given me this amazing group of people to minister with that welcomed me with open arms. Our relationship is God given!
Since becoming a part of Emerge Ministries I have grown spiritually as I once was consumed with myself and my needs. I was at a point in my life before Emerge that I wasn’t sure I had a purpose; I needed to belong! I am now helping to bring change to other people’s lives by displaying love, grace and mercy of God. Thinking of others and what I can do to make a difference in their life has become more important to me. I look forward to every opportunity I get to serve and I have told God many times to send me, I will go. I have stepped out in obedience to God with faith and trust to share my testimony in my blog to help others without knowing what it could possibly do to my life. But God told me to trust Him; so I am. Also I have broken free from the bondage of sexual sin and lustful desires that once held me in bondage. I have been able to let go of the unhealthy relationships, things and behaviours that kept me from moving forward with the call that God has on my life. With a heart change I have a desire to do for those in need but in the end; I am the one that is blessed more so by them. God is using me to love on others but in return I am the one that gets filled up from the love as love is reciprocated to me.
Emerge Ministries has given me a family that accepts me and loves me. Each member of the Emerge Family continues to encourage me to be the woman of God, that He created me to be. My goal each day is to strive to be more like Jesus.
From my heart to yours as I work side by side in this ministry with my God given family; I see the hand of God moving mightily. From the streets, to homeless shelters to helping flood victims to prison ministry we are the hands, feet and voice for God as we reach out to others for no other reason than to do what God created us to do, to love on others!
As with anything there is a cost to support the operation of the ministry. Although we know that God will provide and we are trusting Him to do just that; He often uses others for provisional needs to be met. Kind of like money falling from Heaven. With this being said, just as Pastor Jim of my home church always says, “Pray, hear from God and be obedient! There is no pressure in the Kingdom of God.” However, if God has placed it upon your heart to sow into the Kingdom by making either a one-time donation or by becoming a monthly donor; just know that this ministry is a good field to sow into. If you are not able or ready to sow financially; we would truly appreciate your continued prayers as we continue to do the work of our Father.
