“Planted in the house of the Lord, the Women of Green Acres THRIVE in the courtyards of our God.”
Psalm 92:13 (paraphrased)

Direction from Debbie

Lastly, Green Acres Women is a safe place for you to connect! Don’t "do life" alone. Do life together with other women who want to walk this thing out with the Lord. Our first "Life Together " event is Thursday,
January 17th, see you there!
It is one of the greatest privileges of my life to serve you! Thank you for such a warm welcome to Green Acres!
Let's make Bible Study a priority!
I hope to meet you personally very soon.
​It’s going to be a great year because we serve a GREAT God, and if YOU are allowing HIM to call the shots, he will accomplish great things through you. He cares about every detail of your life and He has a plan for you THIS YEAR!

Here are a few things we can do to position ourselves for greater usefulness and productivity:

1. Move Forward! "But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God." Phil. 3:13-14. There are some things that happened in 2018 of which we need to grieve and let go. Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt because she looked back.

2. Make Room for the Lord! We have made room in our lives for everything from Amazon Prime to eyebrow waxing. Are there some things, priorities, or schedules you can adjust to give the Lord more room? You cannot "make" the Lord work in your life; it is your job to make room for Him to work!

3. Ask the Lord for a Word for 2019! Each year I ask the Lord for a WORD for the year. Maybe it is something He wants me to work on or something underdeveloped in my life. It may be a word that will prepare me for something coming or a word that will help me serve others. I’ve had words such as: resilient, courage, providence, sacrifice, (I’m trying to get a fun word like indulge!) I always look up the meaning and Biblical reference/definition. This year my word is ADVANCE. It means: to move forward in a purposeful way, to make progress. So, my prayers and plans for Green Acres Women’s Ministry are intentional and strategic – I want to move forward in a purposeful way. It makes me think of 1 Thessalonians. 4:1 “…to walk and please God...,that you excel still more.”
