I cannot believe that this is the last post that will be submitted for We are His Daughters. It has been an incredible journey with you all. In the writing of blog posts I oftentimes wrote messages I felt God was speaking directly to my own heart and hoped others would be encouraged by those lessons learned. It was less often the Lord gave me something specific to write that I hadn’t already experienced myself. Regardless of the inspiration I am absolutely astounded at what the Lord has done in and through those of us who felt drawn to share.
I am reminded of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego when I think of the ladies (and men) who have shared with us over the past five years. Many have experienced incredible hardships during their duration of service in this ministry. These beautiful friends of mine are heroes in my eyes because they refused to bow down to the pressures of this world and continued to serve despite the flames of life burning all around them. They showed up, week after week, ready and willing to vulnerably share what God was teaching them while they were in the fire.
Thank you just doesn’t even begin to express the gratitude I feel toward those men and women who sacrificed time every week to share their stories with you all. They have blessed me too.
As our journey with you draws to and end, I want you to know that we are all continuing to serve the Lord how he is leading us. For some of us that looks different than sharing on this blog and that is ok. Some of the ladies are going to begin their own blogging journey. Some of the ladies are going to begin the writing of their own book. Some of the ladies are currently walking through some brand new fires and need to focus on God and His word because anything else is too much right now.
Stay tuned—you haven’t seen the end of us yet!
Finally, thank you for being our loyal readers, supporters, encouragers, cheerleaders and friends. Since announcing this ending we received many e-mails from you, our loyal readers, lamenting about our posts ending and you have shared some very encouraging words with us about how our learned lessons have touched your life in one way or another. Thank you for those kind words—I pray that you continue to be encouraged along your journey with Christ in new and fresh ways with ministries and authors the Lord will place in your path in the days to come.
