Humble Me…

It’s so contradictory to culture.

Humble yourself and you look weak is what they would have us believe. The reality is that there is power in humility. I know, I struggle with the notion myself! As a gal who seeks justice, I often forget that it’s in humility that I stand the most powerful. I feel as if I have to defend myself against the rival, you know? As I continue to journey through January committed to living intentionally, I’ve been recently reminded that humility is paramount. I realize that I might be the only one out there who is convicted in this, but you see, I THINK of myself as having an understanding of humility,  but as I dive into humility, Jesus style, it becomes clear to me that I have quite a bit of work to do.

Do you celebrate weakness, neediness & powerlessness, embracing the power in humility? It’s what Philippians lays out.

Jesus style humility. I’m working on it.

 


Welcome to WFW!

There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself through. We marvel at the creativity that participants post! It’s a blessing!  We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that for WFW that participants refrain from using non-biblical. If you’ve got the time we also encourage you to visit a few of the WFW contributors! It’s always a blessing to see the Scripture and story that creatively appear across the screen.

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 and sharing the creative Word!

Please join myself and some other wonderful ladies as we share the creative gifts God has blessed us with by signing into to the Link below to participate in WFW!

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.

  3. Yes – the verse in Philippians – I am often checking my pride with these words. How often I fail, but God is good. He continues to cultivate humility in me.
