Today's mission-minded focus is PERSPECTIVES about Harvest and Halloween from Matthew 9:35-39.
Ann Dunagan shares from her heart as a Christian mom about how to "deal with" October 31st -- from a biblical and historical perspective, focusing on the need for "Harvest" and being a light for Jesus in this dark and needy world.
Be encouraged as Ann Dunagan shares practical ideas for busy moms and families, about being ambassadors for Jesus Christ and having a passion to be a witness for Jesus, especially during the month of October.
This episode's Bible teaching is from II Corinthians 5:17-21, focusing on the phrase, "Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us..." Highlights also include sharing the "Pumpkin Gospel" or Pumpkin evangelism (by Angie Tolpin -- FREE download at - http://angietolpin.com ), using the carving of a pumpkin to share the good news of God's salvation.
Praying and interceding for the salvation of our children, and trusting God to handle our kids, is VITAL. We need to stand in faith and PRAY for our kids. Whether your children and young and living strong for Jesus, or perhaps you have Prodigal adults who grieve your heart more than you ever thought possible. Let God be GOD in your KIDS!!! As moms, our part is to pray and to trust God. He is ABLE. He loves our kids and God can do anything.
Do not FEAR, even for your children's salvation. Worry and anxiety are not helpful "Momma-attitudes" to have; but they are traps and snares of the enemy. No matter what the present situation is regarding your children, the virtuous woman can stand on God's Word and PRAY in faith.
This week, we're focusing on how to face your FEARS with FAITH, by the power of God's Word and prayer. Today, we're looking at being fearful for the teenage years. This is nothing to joke and worry about, but a season of parenting that requires solid trust and warrior faith.
