South Dakota Women's Lifestyle Conference: Pierre Aglow Prison Ministry to offer Spiritual Encouragement

Pierre Aglow Prison Ministry and friends have rented an exhibit booth at the South Dakota Women's Lifestyle Conference ( this Friday and Saturday at the Ramkota in Pierre.

Our team will offer Spiritual Encouragement to each attendee for the duration of the conference ( 4 - 10 pm on Friday, January 22, 7 am - 4:30 pm on Saturday, January 23). Please join us in encouraging prayer for the Conference planners and attendees, and for the weather and travel conditions for out-of-town guests.

We will have for sale copies of Carla Reed's first CD, 'Mysteries of the Deep,' which was recorded in Pierre, and possibly other selections.

Also at our booth will be the Jack Frost book, "Spiritual Slavery to Spiritual Sonship". A description of the book stated: 'What would life be like with no fear? If you could feel completely at home and at rest in the intimate love of God? We all face two choices in life: to live life as if we have a home or to live life as if we do not have a home. Many Christians live like orphans because they have never made it past their fears and into a place of rest and safety. Are you one of them? Lay aside your orphan mindset. Come in from the storm and find rest! Discover your true identity-and your true home-as a beloved son/daughter of the Father.'

We are weak, but He is strong

2 Corinthians 12:10
"That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

Weakness or Greatest Strength?

Sometimes your biggest weakness can become your greatest strength. Take, for example, the story of one 10-year-old boy who decided to study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident.

The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn't understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move.

"Sensei," the boy finally said, "Shouldn't I be learning more moves?"

"This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you'll ever need to know," the sensei replied. Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training.

Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match.

Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals. This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the referee called a time-out. He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened. "No," the sensei insisted, "Let him continue."

Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament. He was the champion.

On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind. "Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?"

"You won for two reasons," the sensei answered. "First, you've almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grasp your left arm." The boy's biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.

Affirmation for the Week: “I will look for and see my weaknesses, but as I hold them in my mind's eye, I will see them for what they truly are - my greatest strengths.” Have a transforming week!
