Time to Move On

Exodus 14:15 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.

Dear Precious Ladies

So how are you all doing? How has been the month of February? Once again, we thank God for allowing us to cross over into March.

As I was thanking God for the new month that He has given us, I started to ponder about the meaning of the word 'march', which is the month we are in. Here are some of the definitions: to walk in a stately and deliberate manner; to go forward; to advance; to proceed; to forge ahead; to progress; and to stride. I realise that at times events in the past month can hinder our forward movement. I was reminded of a scripture where Moses was crying out to God on behalf of the children of Israel and God told him to simply move forward with them. They had dwelt at the same place for a long time, and God was saying forge ahead.

So my encouragement to you is to walk in a deliberate manner in this month of March. Be determined to make progress in every area of your life. Make strides in prayer, in reading of the Word and in engaging in the spiritual disciplines that you are aware of. Make strides in your academic life, career, service of God, and make deliberate goals that will help you to move forward. Go forward in your marital life. Make improvements where necessary and even in your parenting skills. Let the month of March remind you of moving on. Sometimes we are waiting for God to do for us what we should be doing ourselves. That is why God told Moses 'don't cry to me, move on'. Indeed there are times to cry out to God but remember that some things have to be effected by you. Develop those habits that promote your moving forward and get rid of those habits that will keep you at one place.

If you were crying in February, it's time to wipe away those tears and move on. The Lord is with you. Don't let anything that happened in February determine what your March will be like. Defy every limitation and ceiling that has threatened to ground you in February. And to those of us who did very well in February, keep on moving forward, looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Be encouraged, if God be for us then who can be against us. So let's all move forward in this month of March.


Yay! Next Friday our conference begins. The stage is set and we are ready to gather together and see God move in our midst. I'm very excited about the coming weekend and I know our lives will not be the same. Come and join us as we embark on a journey exploring the lives of biblical women who made a difference in their day. We are going to glean from their lives and from one another's lives as we listen to the Word and to testimonies. We are going to be worshipping together, praying together, listening to the Word together, crying and laughing together and enjoying some fun and games. Don't miss this exciting weekend! I trust that you all saw the flyer. If not, here is the link to it again.

To our international readers, please pray for this conference as we are desiring the presence of the Lord to minister to every woman who is attending. We will also remember you in our prayers.

Much love and blessings
Pastor Fatima
