The Faithful God…

As I stood on the shore, the revelation of the power and majesty of God overwhelmed me. It’s all His. Every bit of it belongs to the God who created it.

The creative God, Jehovah-Elohim.

The faithful God, Jehovah-Shammah.

The God who never breaks a covenant.

He can’t because, well, He can’t. The thought never crosses His almighty mind. Wrap your head around that. We simply can’t, because we make promises casually and break them consistently. Welcome to the 2012 political season. We become skeptical, even skeptical of God. We find ourselves believing in Him and not quite believing Him.  He promises and He will NEVER break the promise. Oh, it may look like the sand is eroding away, but be assured that He alone is God and He alone is faithful. Just be patient. It’s His timing too.

Stand on the shore today and embrace the promises that Jehovah makes…the unbreakable promises.

{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. And if you’ve got the time, we 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! We ask that for WFW that participants refrain from using non-biblical pictures or posts.

Please join us 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. I can’t tell you how perfect your timing is for these sweet words of encouragement. God was reminding me of that today – and your post is another hug from Him of the same reminder. Thank you for being a triple blessing to me today – instead of the double blessing you usually are. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a blessed and beautiful week full of His grace and joy.
