I, like many people, spend far too much time on the internet. The problem for me is that it is part of my “job” as a blogger to visit lots of different sites so that I can share them with you, my readers. But, because of my serious ADD, I often get sidetracked by something cool and before I know it several hours have passed with absolutely nothing constructive done on my part. It is truly a
daily hourly struggle to stay on task.
I know that many of you can nod in agreement with me when I say that far too often I see something and in my head I say “I need to share that with my friends” or “I know someone that would help”. But, and here is the big problem, I mentally make a note to do it only to have someone say something to me, the phone rings, or a song comes on the radio and poof! the thought goes into the recesses of my mind. An example is when someone texts me. In my head I answer but in reality I continue right on with what I am doing with a mental promise to do it as soon as I get a minute. And the minute never comes.
But, as usual, I digress. The purpose of this post is to share with you a fantastic new webpage, facebook page, and app that I recently found. Sometimes, in the midst of the wilderness that is the internet, you come across something that just changes your life in such a positive way.
Missional Women is a page “to serve and equip women to live intentionally to know Jesus and make Him known. In today’s world there are a thousand things pulling at our hearts and minds, a thousand things to distract us from the purpose and mission God has given us. Our desire is to be a resource and place of encouragement and inspiration for you as we walk through this crazy, beautiful life.” It is full of all kinds of resources to help you in your daily walk with Christ. It helps you link up with other women who will stand with you during your journey. One of my favorite quotes from the page is “Not expecting perfection, but helping women take the next step toward living missionally on purpose for the glory of God.”
Oh thank Heaven they don’t expect perfection. Because, more than anything in the world, I am trying to step away from things that seem to require perfection. I am not perfect. I will never, in this life, be perfect. No one I know will be perfect here on earth.
I kind of like hanging out with imperfect people don’t you?
One of the more fantastic things that Missional Women offer is a free app (find it in the app store or there is a link on the Facebook page) for your phone or device. Inside this app are some very cool things. Are you one of those people who struggles with reading the Bible daily? (Like me!) The app has an answer for that. A free audio Bible! Every day you can click on the link to have a chapter by chapter read through. Do you struggle to understand just what God’s plan for you is? There is a devotion page for that! Need a place to find inspirational, God filled blog posts? There is a link for that! Like to spend time on Facebook? Well you are in luck! They have a Facebook page where you can meet some wonderful women who are just like you….struggling to do His will in the midst of our chaotic lives.
And yes if you don’t have an “app” device or phone, their webpage is just as wonderful as the app. Filled with free printable pages for your family, it is a great resource. The devotions are timely and will make your heart smile.
Thanks for coming along today for the journey. I hope your day is as wonderful as you are.
