Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4:29

2017! Where did 2016 go?

As women, we tend to over commit, busy ourselves with necessary – and unnecessary – things. We are multi-taskers. We work outside the home. We work inside the home cooking, cleaning, tending children, tending husbands. Some of us do it alone. Some of us have help in a spouse, a cleaning lady, older children. All of us fall into bed at night and wonder where the day went and how we will find the time tomorrow to do the things that we didn’t get done today. And suddenly, an entire year has flown by and we wonder where it went.

Central Women are no exception! So, here we are, in a new year. With new challenges as women and as a church. Ignite has been announced. The reigns of editorship have been handed from one over-committed woman to another. We have had Women’s Ministry Council resignations, Elder resignations, change everywhere we look all while living in an uncertain world. But we can be certain of this: God does not change! He is in control! Nothing happens in this world that has not passed through His Hands! So in your busy-ness, in the pressures of being an American woman, in the frenzy of activity that surrounds our daily existence, rest in Him! He has 2017!
