Interview
Welcome

How are you all doing? Here in the Southeastern United States the trees are beginning to change colors and it is beautiful. Do you take time to thank God for his wonderful creation? Isn’t God the best artist you have ever seen? Enjoy his handiwork. Welcome to all the CWMs from all over the world. I pray that God is doing a mighty work in your life right now even if you don’t see it.

Do you ever feel that sometimes your life and beliefs are not in agreement? Then, you would love to read the book When Life and Beliefs Collide by Carolyn Custis James. She also does a great study in this book of New Testament women and how they followed Christ.

Interview

I appreciate Lori taking the time this month to be interviewed. Lori is a divorced 33 year old CWM who lives in the United States. She is an administrative assistant and has two boys ages 9 and 6.

Lori says she loves being around others and being around people. She enjoys talking with them and daily life in general.

Lori says the struggles of being a CWM are: being away from my children. Being a single Mom I don’t have the luxury of staying home with my children like I did for 8 years. So I deal with ‘missing out’ on their lives.

Lori’s favorite Bible Verse is: However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived; what God has prepared for those who love him” 1 Corinthians 2:9

God is teaching Lori that He is in control. It is His will, and not mine. He has a plan on His timetable and nothing I do will ‘hurry’ it up.

Lori wants to encourage other CWMs to keep the faith. Just keep turning your struggles, doubts, and fears over to Him. He does hear your prayers. He does listen and comfort you!

Lori, thanks for reminding us that God’s timing is right on time. I heard someone say once God’s timing in on time, but sometimes I wish he would be a little early.

Till next time,
