Life isn’t always easy. God never promised that to us. Actually, the Word of God says, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.” (NIV John 16:33) Jesus never promised us a life free of misery and pain, He simply promised that we would never have to face it alone. Joshua 1:5 says “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
God is right there with us when we face life’s struggles and pain. He tells us, “You are Unforsaken!”
Unforsaken Women Corp is all about coming alongside those that are hurting and letting them know that there is an expiration date on their pain, and while it is still happening, we are here to lift them up, encourage them and keep them focused on the only true healer and redeemer Jesus Christ.
Our inter-denominational women’s event is all about lifting the Name of Jesus high and teaching women how to renew their minds in the Word of God. We meet the last Tues of every month. We have food, giveaways, laughter, skits, worship music, and so much more. I give a message on a topic that relates to women’s issues. Our offering we take supports missions locally and globally with our help focused on reaching women and children.
We have a single moms ministry where we offer full circle help to single moms with everything from tutoring for the kids, free music lessons, counseling, enrichment scholarships and so much more. We have a school in Haiti that we support in which over 100 students get a Christian education, a hot lunch each day, uniforms and supplies all because of the giving of the women at Unforsaken Women and a few loving families. We have a widow support group that we have just started and in the past we have ministered to the homeless, the imprisoned, and many other woman and children who have needed to know that they are Unforsaken!
Our TV ministry that is reaching thousands of homes each week is letting men, women and children know the saving power of Jesus Christ and that His precious Word can change their lives forever.
So, with all of this said, why a resale shop? Well, it takes money to help people. We can’t serve from an empty plate, so God gave us the idea to start Unforsaken Treasures. It is our heart’s desire that this glorious store will be a beacon of light to the community, a place that you will want to be, and you won’t even understand why, it will be miraculous, because The Holy Spirit will draw people.
It’s exciting to be partnering with The Lakeside Church in Oakland Florida. This store will be a wonderful benevolent center for those in need that will make their way to Lakeside for the healing they desire.
It’s truly an honor to have been allowed to serve God in the building and creating of this store. Our wonderful leaders, such as Patty Robinson (our Board President) have worked tirelessly all summer making this store the showplace that you will find it to be.
I truly hope you will pop in, grab a nice cup of lemon water, browse the shop and take home an Unforsaken Treasure of your own, so that you can partner with us in helping women and children locally and globally.
