We have come to the end of October. This is the month that many of
us highlight our God-given Power of Zeal. Zeal urges us forward and
enables us to ride through, or over, any challenges. With Zeal
activated, we rely on God, knowing that our Creator is our Sustainer.
This is such an appropriate time to call on our Zeal as the environment
changes to a slow-moving, no-leaves-on-trees, cold environment. It
may seem as if we are to stop, to proceed into an extended rest; but
we are not bears. This new season is for us to get busy pairing our
zeal with our Power of renunciation, to get all in order within our
As October comes to a close, we thank God for all of the wonderful
information that women like Karen Hall, Founder and CEO of the
nonprofit, Cancer Support Team, shared during this month regarding
Breast Cancer Prevention. Karen has inspired many women to tap
into their zeal in order to keep going. She has lived the Truth, “I am
Perfect, Whole & Complete,” and has been a lively billboard telling it
to the world. Thank you, Karen!
Also, we thank God for all of the organizations such as WINGS, South
Suburban Family Shelter, or Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline, 877-
863-6338, for assisting women who are victims of domestic violence
situations. Removing oneself from such a situation is HARD, which is
why I advise turning within to tap into your “God-given advice”.
Though it will not be easy, rely on our Power of Zeal to move through
and beyond the challenge; and rely on your Faith to guide your hands
and feet, to take your God-given action.
