Seeing many women desperate for hope and healing, Charlene Miller began to pray for an effective way to share more of Jesus with them. As her prayers poured forth, the Spirit began giving her a vision for a ministry that would offer local conferences to those women who might not want or be able to afford to spend an entire weekend away. She has five one-day conferences under her belt so far, with ideas for at least that many more lightly simmering. One conversation with Charlene will convince you that she is committed to Lean Into Jesus Ministries and will move mountains to see that every endeavor initiated by God is bathed in prayer.
I especially love this ministry because of the refreshing way it brings together women from so many faith families uniting them under the name of Jesus. After all, the apostle Paul emphatically reminds all of us that the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is THE matter of first importance.
Although growing up a good little church girl, I only recently discovered the freedom found in allowing Jesus to be my matter of first importance. Keeping Him first answers every question. Today, during these troubling times, I have become passionate about becoming a part of the answer to Jesus’ prayer for unity in John 17: “I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
I feel the Spirit nudging me to write a book about this new freedom I’ve experienced, so I am entering a season of prayer and fasting as I ask the Spirit to prepare my heart. I’ll be taking a break from Perfection Road until February 2nd so that I can be still and listen. Please pray for me during this time that I may hear clearly what He is calling me to write. I’ll continue praying for you. Your faithfulness in reading each week touches me more than you know. I’m blessed to call you friends.
Those of you who want to join me in becoming part of the answer to Jesus’ prayer for unity, please mark your calendar for February 6th, and come to Beyond the Veil – a Lean Into Jesus event you can’t afford to miss. Women of all ages and religious backgrounds are encouraged to come and unite under the name of Jesus. There just ain’t no tellin’ what God’s women can do when we all stick together. Who knows? We just might change this country!
Here is just a whisper of what you’ll want to shout about after attending Beyond the Veil:
