The Meeting

Last night I met with a lovely group of ladies. We had dinner together. We sat on the deck of a home that overlooks a lake and the view was incredible. I was invited "last minute" to come and listen to meet these ladies, but also to give information about our ministry.
The conversation bounced around with each woman sharing a little about her own personal story and then me sharing about what I do at Agape Celebration.  But, we seemed to come back to one thing often, and that was the abuse of  girls in our country.  Human trafficking, prostitution, slavery.  Big words, huh? Some people might want to stop reading, some people might want to say it doesn't even exist in our country, there could be a lot of thoughts about now....
This is an issue in our country. I know that I don't have a solution, but I do know the One who does. I believe God put me in that group of women for a reason, to speak, to give voice to a problem that is prominent and evil.
This morning when I woke, this was still on my mind, as I know it will continue to be. My Bible opened to Romans 8. As I moved down the chapter, I loved reading verses 15 and 16:

"For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out 'Abba Father'  The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God."

Again, God calls me and all of His creation to freedom. And, when there is captivity, He parts the sea and provides a way of escape. He brings a group of women who seek awareness and march forward as His Saints through the power of His Spirit, to do something, anything.  Then, like the swiftness of an arrow, and the fire in the night, there is change. He brings a passion in each heart.
Say That Again, King Jesus! I am Your adopted Daughter, Your Crowned Jewel, no longer bound to slavery in any way. You have come to set the captives free, and I will serve You!
