“She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.”
Proverbs 31:27 NIV
Have you ever met someone who seemed like they have endless energy? I know I’ve met a few women who are very busy, but this woman is always busy doing something lasting. She is always at work building The Kingdom of God.
My friend Sheila is the office manager/“anything that needs to get done” at our church. Sheila is a true disciple of Christ. The Holy Spirit shines in her wherever she goes.
Sheila is a mother and grandmother. She also has wonderful parents who she honors and cares for amazingly. To call Sheila the “office manager” at church is a huge understatement. Well, mainly because I rarely see her sitting in an office. She is always running around taking care of everyone. She protects the leadership of the church by sheilding them from many distractions to protect them as she serves on the front lines in the mission. She is involved in what seems to be every area at the church as well as serving wholeheartedly as a prayer partner at Unforsaken. This is only the work she does at church. Sheila has been in ministry her whole life and she has played key parts in global missions, worked with youth, evangelism, you name it. Though she’s involved in big time ministry work, she never seems too busy to drive a single mom without a car to a needed appointment.
I am in awe of this woman of God. She is a dear friend to me and I count her wisdom as a treasured gift to me in the ministry. She is always there to run an idea by, agree in prayer with and just hug you when you feel like calling it a day.
I love my sweet friend Sheila. She is a Proverbs Woman. I kind of wonder what her role will be someday in Heaven. It better be something mobile, because this lady just never stands still.
