I am excited that you have found our webpage.
You have been prayed for as we have asked the Lord to let you find us and come in.
In the scriptures Jeremiah 8:21-22 and 9:2+24, it says; "Since my people are crushed I am crushed. I mourn and horror grips me. Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why is there then no healing for the wounds of my people? Oh that I had in the desert a lodging place for travelers, so that they might leave their people and go away from them. But let him who boasts ~ boast about this; that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises justice and righteousness on earth for in these I delight"
~~~ Gilead is a place and Balm is a soothing ointment.~~~
Having spent 60 plus years, thus far, walking this earth there have been many times that I have felt the need for a place a-way, a balm ~a physician of sorts that would take care of me.
Did I find one? Rarely.
Albeit, the Lord has been faithful to me over the years. As I have finished up the hands on raising of my 12 children I am feeling prompted to offer just that,
An Ebenezer ~ a "Stone of Help"
(1 Samuel 7), a respite , a nest for the ones that God so loves. So that they can have a place to come away to and breath, a harbor to be refreshed and nurtured in before going back to the battle.
I count this a priviledge to be a part of His plan for your life.
Gilead's Balm is a simple place~ a home.
I am a servant called to minister the love of the Lord to you.
I so look forward to meeting and talking with you.
May your feet and the hand of our Heavenly Father lead you here.
Our door is open to you and our hearts as well.
