Certainty in Uncertain Times
FIEC Ministry Wives joined online to be encouraged by the sovereignty of God which sustains in uncertain times.
On Saturday 28th November we held the first FIEC Ministry Wives meet-up that was online and not limited geographically. Women joined from across the United Kingdom - from both smaller and larger churches - and enjoyed fellowship together.
An hour on Zoom was a spiritual oasis for 80 ministry wives in their busy and demanding schedules. Jane Gamston (whose husband Paul is a pastor at South Craven Evangelical Church, West Yorkshire) spoke from Psalm 103: “Certainty in Uncertain Times”.
Jane spoke honestly from personal experience of how God’s sovereignty had sustained her and how this “truth in trial” works when there is no guarantee of a happy ending in this life.
This recording would be of help to any believer, particularly to women in your churches, and to you as a ministry wife if you were not able to join us on the day.
For Ministry Wives who would like to be connected with other ministry wives or receive the Ministry Wife Life email, please contact Elinor Magowan by email.
The questions below were used in break-out groups. Do consider them for your own personal reflection.
- Can you think of any times where you have been encouraged by looking back and remembering what God has done for you?
- In Psalm 103: 8-12 how does the Psalmist describe God's dealings with His people's sin? What should our response be?
- We have a “certain” relationship with our Heavenly Father. How can we be encouraged by this and how can we encourage others?
- How does the certainty of an eternal home with our Saviour make a difference to our lives here in this broken world?
