I’m super excited to be “All Grown Up” now!!! I have been blogging at a “Blogspot” for nearly 3 years. This has meant that the address to my blog has been very long and at times hard for people to find. My old address was womenlivingwell-courtney.blogspot.com…long!
My new blog address is WomenLivingWell.Org!
I moved from an editor named “Blogger” to “WordPress”. The lovely lady who did the delicate move of migrating ALLLLLLL my old blog posts is Erin from Design By Insight. Isn’t she amazing?!!! I was a bit nervous that all my content could be lost but it was a seamless move – this girl is GOOD!!!
I hope you can find everything you need here. The homepage is a bit cleaned up. Please let me know if you find any kinks.
You might notice that I have added a tiny word into the title…the word “Ministry”. In the Greek, the word ministry is “diakonea” meaning “to serve.” This Greek word is used twice in Matthew 20:26-28.
26 It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
This is my heart for Women Living Well. John McArthur writes: “So, if we pursue greatness, we pursue it on the path of humility. If we pursue greatness, we pursue it on the path of service, we pursue it on the path of slavery.”
Ann Voskamp has put my heart into a prayer and it starts like this:
Every great victory begins on the knees.
Upside Down blogging, with Jesus increasing and us decreasing,
begins with us bowed in prayer over a keyboard… so we begin in prayer…
The prayer is seen here. And then it ends:
Yahweh, You alone are my God, not Google
Jesus, You alone are my Savior, not site meters
Holy Spirit, You alone are my Comforter, not comments….
So be it, today, yesterday, and every post to come.
This is my prayer I have made on earth and over this keyboard…
Let it be ratified in heaven.
I am your servant and I love being here every week with you as we wrestle out living our lives as wives and moms to the glory of God. The word ministry just felt fitting!!!
You all do ministry too – you minister to your husbands, children, extended family, neighbors, and church friends! Many of you host in home Bible studies, take meals to sick moms, coordinate summer Vacation Bible Schools, take teens on Missions Trips, head up Good Morning Girls groups, hold babies in the nursery and teach Children’s Sunday School classes. You spend hours laboring for no financial gain – but simply out of an overflow of your love for Jesus! I want to be like you!
Ministry is a lifestyle not a vocation.
I love you, my reader, deeply. I am praying for you all.
Walk with the King!
