We just love how ladies come to Women World Leaders and share their talents with us. May these lyrics bless your devotional read today and may the music fill your soul with joy and worship.
“PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD”
By Brenda James
When we get to Heaven, we’re gonna sing
We’ll come together in praise to the King
For He is worthy of honor, in every way yeah
He is the reason we are living today
You know Him, You know Him by name
He is Lord of Lords, He is always the same
Our Creator, Maker, and Savior today
We will share our faith and prepare the way
Jesus, He’s coming again
He sees us and He is our friend
Hallelujah, give Him some praise
Get yourselves together and prepare the way
Prepare ye the Way of the Lord
He is coming thru the clouds, carrying a Sword
Gonna take us with Him, so we’re gonna fly
Meet Him in the air, way up in the sky
I can hardly wait, to see His face
He’s gonna shine it on the human race
And the clouds will part, and we’re gonna rise
This is gonna be a big surprise!
You know Him, You know Him by name
He is Lord of Lords, He is always the same
Our Creator, Maker, and Savior today
We will share our faith and prepare the way
Jesus, He’s coming again

Hallelujah, give Him some praise
Get yourselves together and prepare the way
Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord
He is coming thru the clouds, carrying a Sword
Gonna take us with Him, so we’re gonna fly
Meet Him in the air, way up in the sky
Hands up get ready to fly
Wake up we’re coming alive
Hands up prepare to receive
What chu been waiting for?
Cuz Jesus is King!
Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord
He is coming thru the clouds, carrying a Sword
Gonna take us with Him, so we’re gonna fly
Meet Him in the air, way up in the sky

Someone who is relentless wants your children and he’ll take them any way he can get them and please be on the lookout and on guard!! Satan appears with drugs, alcohol, addictions, and even bitterness, grief, and unforgiveness as he attacks our loved ones.
The good news is we have a weapon to fight back with on their behalf. We need to stop complaining, stop the fear, and get in the battle which is raging right this moment. The time is now!
We are more than conquerors with the ammunition God provides! He knows what we are up against. He sees it all.
If your child has a problem in these areas or other areas not mentioned,  we know it’s an attack of the enemy. You must stand up with confidence, knowing who you are in the Lord, and gain back your child for Christ!
You have POWER and AUTHORITY. Satan does not!
Rebuke his lies and deception by the power invested in you through Jesus Christ our Savior. He is Lord over EVERYTHING in your life, including YOUR CHILD! Go to battle. You may even see attacks happening on your very young children, not just the older ones. Evil lurks everywhere and attacks happen all around us. Be on guard.
Put on your armor princess warrior. Ephesians 6:11-13
Get on your belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, feet with the readiness of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, and get in the battle. Fight hard. Pray in the spirit, God tells us to! (Vs 18 )
You have POWER, get after it and use it. Your children need you, in Jesus’ name they need you!
Go to battle on their behalf. Be a voice!

We have a treat for you today you will not want to miss!
Our Woman World Leader from the United Kingdom,
Donna Clare is in the performing arts and has a passion to serve and a desire to give people hope. She did this monologue for us of the Woman Caught in Adultery from (John 7:53-8:11) and it’s wonderful.
God has given her different biblical characters to speak of and has shown her how to captivate her audience by sharing different verbal stories, hoping to bring encouragement,  hope, and a relevance of the Bible today.
She has remained close to the biblical account for accuracy and at the end, she gives a story to encourage you a bit. It’s about 3 minutes long, just click on the box below and you can close your eyes and listen. It’s beautifully done and in Donna’s sweet English accent which we are confident will bless you. Donna says you can put yourself into this woman’s place and let it take you on a journey with the Woman Caught in Adultery.
Thank you Donna for sharing in this awesome way so that we can hear this story come alive today.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
 Why is it that some people never seem to grow in relationship with the Lord? We watch their life with eager anticipation of a blossoming with Him, but somehow there is barely evidence or it slowly comes to fruition. Unfortunately in some, we may not see evidence of any Jesus in someone we have longed to see walk with Christ.
People seem to go from one catastrophe to the next, never able to get beyond just trying to survive. The sad point is they do it alone when they could be walking with the most powerful person ever, our Lord and Savior.
 Why is it that people lack joy in their life not having a relationship with the Father? Doesn’t everyone desire it? Why do they lack spiritual breakthroughs or even a deeper communication with God is the question? I used to be one of those people. There are so many who just can not seem to find time for God or the beautiful purpose that He has waiting for them. It’s heartbreaking.
I believe the answer lies in the word “surrender”. I was privileged to speak on “how” to surrender at a women’s conference at a church in Northern Florida a couple of years ago. I had the joy of sharing how my life completely turned around when I honored the word and “surrendered” fully to God.
 It was a blessing to have many women who were moved by the message and came to me afterward to talk about this in relation to their own lives. I saw the need to talk about it was strong. “Ah-ha” moments were surfacing!
 When I put obedient action into my repentive heart many years ago,  I walked forward in faith, surrendering EVERYTHING to my God! It’s something I encourage everyone to do.
 The word obedience is a “key” word. Making Jesus Lord over your life and no longer yourself, is something that requires making a choice. Surrender to the Savior is life-changing.
 Surrender and surrendering “everything” means being willing to say “Lord, whatever you want me to do, I’ll do it.” I’m no longer my own or a slave to sin, I’m a child of God and free to live as one, and I needed to behave as one also.
 We need to die to ourselves and give up the things of the flesh that once controlled us. Putting God first and submitting to His rulership will make ALL the difference in your life.
” Why do you call me, ‘Lord, ‘Lord,  And do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice.”
(Luke 6:46-47)
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.” ( Philippians 2:13)
Wow, can we all understand that it’s through “obedience” we will get to the closer and closer relationship we long for with our Lord? The  “surrender” will have God working in our lives for His greater purpose and that is something we can all shout an amen to.
If we can do this in our own lives, and not worry about others as much, it will happen for you and it will happen for anyone desiring to have a relationship with God. It’s a personal choice to surrender and commit to obedience. Pray for the others you love to have the same.

Guest Writer: Day Marshall
Notes from our Father
“Be still and know that I am God.” (Ps 46:10, NIV)
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.” (John 14:27, NIV)
Recently I was talking with a dear friend on one of our semi-regular video calls. Both of us lost parents, suddenly and unexpectedly, about a week apart. Both of us spent weeks diligently going through the artifacts of our parents’ lives. For me, it was photos of my dad’s life that I’d never seen. Letters and awards he’d kept for 80+ years. Notes his own mother had mailed to him while he was away at West Point. Pictures of high school friends and events. They gave me eyes to see him in ways I had never considered – that he was a person before he was my dad.
He was a baby, a child, a teenager, a student.
My friend’s sorting through her mom’s belongings included many forms of her writing. Notes about sentiments that were important to her. Quotes that resonated with her heart. Personal thoughts that she quietly recorded but didn’t necessarily share aloud. My friend reflected that as she was reading these words, she felt her mom’s presence. Not in a ghostly way, but in a way that allowed my friend to feel connected to her mom because of her words written.
 My friend found examples of her mom’s humor, her love of the Lord, care for her children, and the things she believed to be important. My friend could hear her mom’s voice and reflect on her mom’s character and heart through the words she chose to record by putting pen to paper.
In our conversation, I considered how our heavenly Father communicates with us in similar ways through His Word.
 When we read the words He chose to record, when we encounter the lives He chose to give detail about, when we look at the events He chose to underscore in His Word, we see His character, His heart, and His will. It is through His Word that we can draw near to Him in our hearts and feel His presence.
Hebrews 4:12 reminds us that God’s Word “is alive and active”. His Word is also a light that guides us (Ps 119:105) and provides understanding (Ps 119:130). It is a source of wisdom and knowledge (Prov 2:6). And for those grieving, and feeling so alone, most comfortingly, it is a source of hope (Ps 119:114).
 Perhaps it is for these reasons that seeing our Lord’s words give us a sense of closeness to the Author. And the closeness that my friend experienced when reading the words of her mother is available to us when we draw near to the Father by reminding ourselves of His heart, His character, and His desire for us as His children.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Have you ever felt so beat up that your wounds don’t ever feel like they can heal? I was talking with a friend who felt her life was over through a rough breakup. She made some mistakes in the relationship she can’t get beyond and the wounds because of it was very deep and there was no turning back. She can’t seem to release it. She was not married but she is not getting beyond the pain in the brokenness of it all and it’s sad.
God can bind any wounds so they can heal. He is the God Most High. When your life sometimes gets bruised and has different paths than you anticipated, you can still be sure you can go from brokenness to wholeness.
Ask God to give you the adequate rest you need so that your heart can beat strong again. Ask Him to do a miracle in you and change your focus to Him.
“Lord, YOU are my precious Shepard. You care for me always. I lack no good thing. You give me rest when I need it. You restore my soul. You soothe my fears and You make me whole again. I will follow you forever.”
(Psalm 23:1-3)
God can make you a kingdom-focused woman despite how you feel and especially when you feel beat up, broken, and bruised! Cast your uglies and all your open wounds on Him because He cares about them all and He will fix them. It may not be your way but His way is better!
Watch what God will do for you if you trust Him and let Him heal you. You will see great and mighty things happen as your wounds heal and you’ll be aware of what God is doing through you.
May others pursue God because they see the healing He is doing in your life! You can be an example through your struggles. Close your eyes and picture it. Get yourself in the presence of God. Yes, get closer to Him and ask Him to restore your soul and allow you to help others.
God will do this and far more than you can imagine if you bring yourself into His presence.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
How we “talk” to ourselves is critical to our ability to thrive in life. What is your brain telling you? I’m a big proponent of always staying positive for not only myself but those around me and any who know me. I tend to “get after” anyone that I know who may go to the negative side of life. I just encourage them.
When we tell ourselves, “I’m not going to get through this” it’s like we are telling our minds to stop working. We shut them down, think about it.
If you have troubles with continually thinking negatively, prayerfully ask God why your thoughts seem to go to the lamenting or complaints, hurt, or loss. Pray and ask God to speak into you so you can turn your ship around, it’s that easy. God hears every prayer as you turn to Him.
In the past, I’ve had heartbreak upon heartache and thoughts as to curl up in a ball… I just wanted to die to escape the intense hurt. I could choose to be negative over hurt or choose to get beyond the negative thoughts. I choose to be positive. How?
I renew my mind… I invite God into those deep places you go when your mind sinks with you going deeper and deeper into numbness, denial, or depression. God is the one who can get you out of negativity and into peace, comfort, courage. He gives us insight and wisdom. He will if you ask. He is ready to help you as you surrender your hurts to Him. It’s your first step to positive freedom… surrender it over to Him!
God wants you to be free where you are in this moment. It’s easy to make any situation negative for whatever reasons…(maybe it’s to get attention.) It’s easy to bring yourself down with negative thoughts and then bring others around you down as well. It’s a process to move forward and stay positive, but a process that can be done quickly.
Ask God to show you over and over what’s good, true, and right. Saturate your mind with these things and be ready for a newness of life and joy overflowing.
“Be not conformed to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” ( Romans 12:2)
Also…Psalm 125:5-6 God keeps His promises to us, He is a promise maker. Why get negative ever when we have God and His word? In this scripture, it talks about the harvest you will carry in your arms, just plant those seeds of faith in the ground ladies. Be positive- God is in control. He has a plan for  EVERYTHING! Including your life. No need to be negative.
God’s mercies are new every day!

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
“Fear”
I relate many things to my own life when God gives me a topic to share.
Some of us are facing fears and don’t even know if we will see a future ahead in the face of our fears. It could be health scares, relational scares, financial scares, or even spiritual scares.
Jeremiah 29:11 is a word for people living in captivity. The scripture talks about those who had fear! But just as they had fear, God knew their fears and left provision for them, read the whole chapter, it’s wonderful.
If you are like me, the devil wants to bully us in our minds and push us into captivity. That’s where he loves to get me, in my mind and thoughts. I often get stuck thinking I was not a good mother because of the mistakes I made. The devil uses past behaviors of me and others to haunt me and when he does, I feel the rejection even more. He knows exactly where to get us when we hurt. The good thing is the devil doesn’t actually know our future.  He wants to take us out long before we get to our future, right?
But God on the other hand tells us He knows the plans He has for us!
God’s plans are good plans, the best plans. He wants us to look over our fears and consider what awaits us in the promised land. By faith, believe God’s plans for YOU!
When you are attacked in your mind and I gave you an example of my thoughts of never having a relationship with my children ever again, we must collect ourselves and understand the devil is a liar! I must rely on God’s Word.
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord; plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ( Jeremiah 29:11)
When the flames of oppression are consuming you, God wants to pull you from any captivity of fearful thinking and fan the freedom of His hope. You have hope in Jesus Christ dear sisters. He can help you overcome any fears the devil brings to your mind.
Look back over your shoulder at the faithfulness of God. Has He delivered you from something devastating before? For me, He has many times over!  He will do it again. He will deliver you and He will deliver me. Our God is faithful. Thank God for His faithfulness in your life and watch Him get you beyond your fears. Trust Him.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Ministries who share Jesus and His Word are very important to get involved in. There are ministries to suit each of our needs, ministries that speak to many different hearts, and ministries to evangelize.
Mothers of preschoolers, homeschooling moms, women who are sick, career-driven women, golden years ladies, sport active ministries, home-bound women, teenagers that need coaching are examples of who can be reached and all of them have specific needs.
 So many women’s ministries are flourishing because there is a tremendous void to fill. Please find a place you can serve and grow in Christ and find one that is biblically sound.
God’s Word applies to our everyday lives but there are certain places we can relate and grow with better. Through strategic planned studies, you could find a highly effective group that can help you in your day-to-day toils of where you are in life combined with having fun in other areas of common interest.
Ministries can help you with all kinds of understanding through studying and values of life. They have an important role in what they play in society.
At Women World Leaders,  we try to offer you hope and growth in Jesus while at home, in the workplace, and recreation. Through sharing our website assistance, podcast teaching, encouragement on Facebook, Voice of Truth magazine material for reading and yearly books put out, you can be inspired through it all.
WWL’s has ample opportunities for anyone to serve with us, just ask us how or share your desire.
Wherever you choose to glean, plugging into a ministry can catapult you to another level in your spiritual growth. Pray about it and see where God leads you. Please make certain the resources for women are what you are looking for before you plug-in and get involved. God first,  always!

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We put a whole lot of emphasis on resolving conflicts in WWL. Why? Because it’s so very important to learn how to deal with issues God’s way as we walk the journey of life. It’s not easy.
Please deal with conflict quickly and don’t allow it to fester. Holding grudges is a significant way the enemy will cause bitterness to grow inside you.
Confront conflict privately and confidentially so there is no room for others to gossip or misconstrue what has happened.
Be clear when you express your feelings if you’ve been hurt or embarrassed.
Listen to the other person and definitely give room and ample opportunity for them to respond.
Please be quick to forgive, it should be a top priority in which we all strive to do …and please be the one being quick to ask for forgiveness if you’ve offended or hurt another.
Remember what God commands of us, we are to love one another. Truly love them and try to figure out a way the hurt or embarrassment won’t ever happen again.
Trust God for your results ladies, even if the other person isn’t complying.  TRUST GOD and make every effort you can to make things right. Your life, your health and your spiritual walk with God depends on it.
