"Women Making a Difference"
When I was studying Facebook last week, reading about all of its options and opportunities, something very different and new came into focus for me. It was one of those "Ah-Hah" moments as I looked at the faces of my friends and associates.
I saw face after face after face of women that ARE making such a difference in the lives of others. There are Internet Marketers, Entrepreneurs, Authors, Singers, Songwriters, Inspirational Writers of Books and Blogs, Ladies who teach and encourage others with their multi-faceted talents and gifts. Mothers, who care for, inspire and direct their children to grow up to make a difference, Women who have a Heart for those in Orphanages, and so, so many more!
For many years now, I have been working very hard building up my Internet presence and my business. For me, Facebook has always been a social networking site used to keep up with friends — helping us to know what was going on with them in their daily lives as we celebrated their joys and accomplishments. We prayed for these same friends holding them deep to our heart as they faced many of life's challenges. Facebook then went on to become a way to promote my business with the new "Facebook Fan Page", and now my new Payvment Store where I sell my DVD, and e-Books. But now, at least for me as well as many others, there is another and more exciting avenue on the Facebook Horizon.
God has always been my "Rock, Strength, Courage, and Inspiration". He changed my business years ago as He has also changed my life DRAMATICALLY as He loved me and carried me in many times of trouble. My Internet business, which was always a driving factor in what I planned and did in my life, is different now. Yes, I guess you would say I am what they call an Internet Entrepreneur. Oh, but that is not nearly as important as where God has been leading me for some time now.
HE has given me a "HEART" for others! And…on a regular basis "Breaks MY Heart for What Breaks His".
So many ladies email me daily who suffer from the same insidious disease I have suffered from for over 30 years…Fibromyalgia. They tell me they want and need what I have. They want a reason to get out of bed in the morning with a desire and a goal in their hearts which given them strength and energy to push through the hurt that their bodies deal out on a regular basis. They want to be able to own their own business and earn extra income to help support their families. They see that I have strived to do this in spite of dealing daily with a chronic disease…a disease which, by the way, GOD IS HEALING ME OF RIGHT NOW…TODAY!
So, my goals and my life are different now! I am on a "Mission for God"! I don't know exactly where it is leading, but He does! He is walking on a path before me calling me to follow. I cannot see where the path leads; I cannot even see too far ahead on this path. I DON'T NEED TO! I KNOW I am NOW going in the right direction because God is there calling me forward!
So…"Women Making a Difference" came to be!
As with the path God is leading me on, I cannot see too far ahead into the future of this "group", but I know it is right and good and meant to be!
I know that I am being led to somehow join each of "us" together as we share our goals and our dreams with encouragement and support in every endeavor in our lives. Each one of you is already making a difference in the lives of those you know and come in contact with every single day, so You are:
"A Woman Making a Difference"!
Just imagine — With God's Leading — How Amazingly Strong Our Influences Combines Together Can Become!
I have prayed "The Prayer of Jabez" every single day since 2001! When I first prayed this prayer and read: "Oh that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory", I would stop and think; this does NOT apply to me – I cannot! How can God enlarge my territory when I can hardly ride in a car to Greenville, SC only 30 minutes away?
Well, shame on me for doubting Him! God HAS enlarged my territory to be able to reach and talk with people from all over the world. So, we have no idea what God has in store for us as a group of "Women Who Really DO Make a Difference" in our worlds!
