My Ministry Is For Women (Please Pray For Me)

I’ve been taken a step back recently from the blog and have been soaking more scripture in. There are a lot of things I want to cover, and I realize I can’t do it all at once.

Many of these topics people struggle with. I’m not here to persuade, but I’m here to inform. There is something I want to make clear about my blog.

My ministry is for women. 

I’m not here to have the authority of scripture for a man. That’s not my role, and I want that to be clear for my blog. That’s why I changed my tagline for Inside Cup. I’m not here to instruct men, but women.

That doesn’t mean I’m going to feminize every single post of mine either. My blog has never been about that, but I do want to work harder at covering some topics particularly for women.

I want women to be encouraged to know scripture and to draw closer to Jesus. I want women to be aware of false teachings and eventually I plan to call out false teachers! But again, I want to do it properly.

If people are going to walk down a path that leads to destruction, and pull down others with them, we are CALLED TO WARN! 

It’s not gossip. It’s not to point fingers. But if there are wolves then people need to be warned! It’s as simple as that. How will people know who to be careful around if we just tiptoe so as not to hurt feelings? We know something is toxic because we know the name of it.

I’ve been afraid because I know teachers are judged more critically, and I never wanted to be a teacher for that reason. But if you look at my blog and how the Lord has guided me, rebuked me, and helped me… I very much am in a teacher’s position.

I have been afraid and wanted to run because I know people struggle with topics I bring up. I am more than aware I might lose people… maybe people I’ve known for years on this platform. But to not go forward because I want to cater to people’s feelings versus pointing to the truth of Christ that saves souls… I NEED to care more about your soul than how you’re going to feel about what I have to say.

And it grieves me.

It hurts me that people are fallen and they refuse to see the truth. That false teachers have these disgusting teachings that are itching to the ears, filling the belly, puffing up the ego, and hardening hearts against sound doctrine!

It hurts that in order to point people to Jesus that means we will be hated and, man, is it the truth. It angers me the false Jesus of this world is soft, bent backwards to cater to people’s feelings, and will immediatey become ashes when put through the fire of the living God!

People don’t want to hear what Jesus actually stood for! REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND!

Talk about sin alone and there’s a high chance you are judged for judging others.

Talk about holy living and people immediately point fingers at the cross, wanting to stay there and not go to the open tomb (the resurrection) that leads to our justification (Romans 4:25) because of the sanctification (1 Thessalonians 5:231 Corinthians 1:08, 1 Corinthians 1:30, Hebrews 4:12, James 1:04, 2 Peter 3:042 Peter Ch. 1, 2 Peter 3:01, Ephesians 4:24) that takes place in our lives because of the renewing of our minds from the Holy Spirit whom we receive from Jesus (Romans 12:02, Ephesians 4:23-24, 1 Peter 1:14), and walking in the way of the Spirit. (Romans 8:05)

But the sufferings of this world do not compare (Romans 8:18), and I want to put precious stones, at least one, on the foundation of Christ so that it is tested through fire and remains. I do not want to put wood, hay, or stubble on the foundation of Christ that is burned up. (1 Corinthians 3:11-13)

I stepped away a bit from my blog because I had to come back better prepared in armor and with a sharp sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17). I am working on making this a daily routine. ❤

Please pray for me, that I do not rely on motivation to encourage and direct women to Christ. Pray that the Lord ministers to me through His word and that He guides with His word. It is through His word (scripture) He both sanctifies us and gives us faith. (John 17:17, Romans 10:17)

I pray if you read a post of mine that you are able to take something from it and that it glorifies God.

(NKJ) Psalm 84:10, “For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.” 

Monthly Scripture – (NKJ) Psalm 85:05-06, “Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations? Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?”

  1. Hello! Thanks for posting, it’s good to be clear about things I reckon, saying no to things so you can say yes to what’s more important to you.

    Sounds like your blog/ministry is evolving, that’s exciting. As long as us blokes can still visit and have a read lol.

    Praying right now!

  2. T. R. Good to see you back on here writing. I agree with your post. It is hard to pick just one thing you said, so pretty much I will just say “Amen” to what you shared. If God has called you to minister to just women, then that is what you should do. Biblically, we are to teach the younger women.

    But, I don’t see a blog as the same as having any kind of authority over anyone biblically. We don’t. We are just out in the public sharing what the Lord is teaching us from his word, and if a man chooses to read what God gives us to say, that is his choice. And, maybe the Lord will use us to speak to the hearts of men, too, not in an authoritative position other than just from the authority of God’s word itself, for that is impossible for us to be in authority over anyone in this venue anyway.

    I just know for me that my assignment is just to write what the Lord gives me to write, and that I am to place it on the internet, and He takes it from there. Where it goes or who reads it is up to God, not up to me. But, we aren’t all called in the same way, are we?

    1. I’m still very much digging into what it means to be a woman of God and what that looks like as a teacher figure. I agree blogging is different than having authority over a congregation, but I want to be careful.

      There’s a lot to learn ❤ but I'm grateful for what God has opened my eyes to. 🙂

  3. Praying in the Spirit for you, dear sister. May His peace envelop you as you yield to Him and His leading each step of the way. May He protect you from and give you victory over the evil one in Jesus’ name. May He fill you with His Holy Spirit.
    Lots of love in Christ 💖💖

  4. Thank you for your honesty. You are being an obedient servant, doing what you believe the Lord has put on your heart. Good for you! I do pray that you will hear from the Lord and be strengthened to complete your ‘assignment’. I also pray for wisdom to know what to write about and how to say it. I pray you’ll have godly courage to say the things that need to be said. I also pray for discernment and protection. I am looking fwd to your future posts. Remember that your greatest enemy may not be the world. It may be fellow Christians on here who disagree with you or are offended because they refuse to change. Be bold, be strong, for the Lord your God is with you! 😊
