Remember the Roots…

 

Far too often we boast and pride ourselves in what “we’ve” done. The culture encourages it.

While at the lake the other day, these branches were before me and this verse came to mind.

There is no room for boasting when you’re supported by much stronger roots.

 

Welcome to WFW!

There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself thorough. We marvel at the creativity that participants post with this meme. We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that non-biblical resources not be used.

WFW is not about books, authors, artists.. it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word.

Join myself and some other wonderful ladies as we share by signing into to the Link below!

Lori MacMath

Lori's daily mantra includes praying, "I will take it Lord, ALL you have to give," and a commitment to live out Colossians 3:17 daily. It's her prayer that the energy that fills her spirit be with her till her dying breath! Nearly two years ago, Lori traded the sauna of the Deep South, for the snow of Chicago. After 19 years in Atlanta, Lori has bought herself a coat and some winter boots and is ready for the NEXT adventure at Harvest Bible Chapel / Chicago West. She navigates this road with her husband of 26 years and they have 3 children, ranging in age from 17 - 22. She seeks daily to be creative and use the gifts the Lord has given her. With the heart of an artist and a spirit to live intentionally missional, Lori strives daily to see Him in all that surrounds her. Encouraging women on their daily walk with the Lord is her passion! She has recently stepped out into NEW territory with her husband in the inner city of Chicago. She is on staff at Harvest Chicago West, in the Austin neighborhood, where the Lord is opening her eyes to Urban Ministry and Discipleship. Lori and her husband also have a Business as Missions endeavor that helps empower women and missionaries around the world. She would be HONORED if you'd visit Hope Products International where providing HOPE to the world through fair trade and sustainable products. Lori has served in a number of roles over the years, ranging from Camp/Leadership Adventure Coordinator, a mid week Bible club for elementary and upper elementary students in a local public elementary school as well as being on staff at her church. She is excited in this season to watch the Lord unfold HIS plans for the next step on the journey. Helping others, loving others where they are and seeing the transforming power of Jesus is at the heart of all she does. Her heart for children, women and all those on the broken road is at the core of everything she does. She LOVES playing graphically and encouraging others through visual arts, and her passion for Discipleship is at the heart of all she does. It truly inspires her and fills her spirit.

  1. Blessings Lori and WFWers… Let us put our roots down deep in the Word of God and the Only One who supports us and our growth. May we abide in Him so He abides in us! I love how the branches of your tree…are so beautifully intertwined with the Word that gives life and come from our Life Source!
    “I will not consider myself to be superior to those other branches.(because) If I do, (I must)consider this: I will not support the root, but the root will support me.” I noticed that this beautiful photo of this poor tree branch… has no growth, not even a bud… how sad. But that is how we become when we are boastful or prideful or allowing our society’s mode to form our formation… no, we must not conform to the world but be transformed. I’m off to transform my mind by renewing it with God’s Word. No better way than a WFW day! Thanks to Amydeanne and Lori and ISD with all the WFW family… being led by God’s spirit to share His Word!!! Hallelujah!!! Let’s boast in the One who gives us Life and speak Life into others in Jesus name… Love and peace, Peggy
