Have you ever noticed how in the scriptures men are always going up into the mountains to commune with the Lord? Yet in the scriptures, we hardly hear of women going to the mountains.
Why? Women are busy keeping life going; they couldn’t abandon babies, meals, homes, fires, gardens, and a thousand responsibilities to make the climb into the mountains!

Men have to climb the mountain to meet God, but God comes to women where ever they are.”I have been pondering on her words for weeks and have searched my scriptures to see that what she said is true.

He meets them at the wells
where they draw water for their families,
in their homes, in their kitchens,
in their gardens. He comes to them
as they sit beside sickbeds, as they give birth,
care for the elderly, and perform necessary mourning
and burial rites. Even at the empty tomb,
Mary was the first to witness Christ’s resurrection,
She was there because she was doing the womanly
chore of properly preparing Christ’s body for burial.
He knows where we are and the burdens we carry.
He sees us, and if we open our eyes and our hearts
we will see Him, even in the most ordinary places and in the most ordinary things.

He is using a time such as this to speak to women around the world.
