welcome to the draft

I have been called to duty. I have been saved, loved, held, washed clean and given a new heart. Now I stand up and testify. Is this any different than a man who preaches, teaches, pastors, leads?
OH, But I am a woman. Is my testimony flawed? Is there a reason to deny me the joy of sharing my experiences with the Holy Spirit?
Oh, sure, but only to other women, or children. Not in front of men.
Who would believe that this is reasonable?

Suffice It Tomorrow

People like me take the hardest route. Maybe because the payoff just isn't worth it unless someone has given their pound of flesh.
This time, though, I say the pounding has been done and no more.

Give us this day, our daily bread.

Your life... my contentment.

Thank you.
