內容簡介 "Chosen and beloved", is the answer to the unasked essential question of functionality and identity, that first ladies, women in ministry, and in the market place have grappled with over the years. This book gives a scriptural and contextual response to those questions integrated into daily ministry and life praxis. This book embodies the lived experience of the author Laverne Ramsey, which teaches women of God; how to guard against the "doing" syndrome in ministry and embrace relationally "being" with Jesus. Allowing His Word "the manual" will teach, equip, and define who you are and who He wants you to be." Rev. Dr. Arlene O Hall, Lead Pastor Founder of Deliverance Temple Worship Center-Boston MA.CHOSEN AND BELOVED- a fascinating journey through a life of ministry. You are God's choice. You have been chosen and beloved, to participate in this time in history. Selected to be a part of what God is doing in this season. Of all the available choices, you are the one who is here, not by accident but by the divine purpose of God. The question comes to mind, why me? The response, "John 15:16 "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you." Chosen to be fruitful, you are to be productive and cause growth and multiplication to take place. You are to be a good steward of everything entrusted to you, to increase and be bountiful in your harvest. Whatever it is that God has placed in your hand, do it with a passion, do it in a way that honors God and watch God bless and increase it.Leading Lady LaVerne H.
