WHAT A WOMAN…

Irena Sender  Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98)  Warsaw, Poland

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.  Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried.  She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.  Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.  The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.  During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.  Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazis broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out in a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard.  After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family.  Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

M.S, Lowndes wrote this beautiful poem:  “RISE UP, O WOMAN OF GOD”

“Rise up, O woman of God in what He has given you.
The things God has laid on your heart.  Rise up, go forth, and do.

Unlock what God has placed within. The potential you have inside.
The world is waiting for your release to expand your wings and fly.

Arise in your God-given gifts.  For this is your finest hour.
Arise in the Lord’s holy might, Ignited and empowered.

For God is calling you to come forth to impact this world for Him,
Don’t hold back or limit yourself. Let His power arise within.

And take His message to the world, to those who have lost their way.
For you surely make a difference if you’d hear His voice and obey.

You shall be strengthened in the Lord as you begin to arise,
Conquering those doubts that pull you down and believe who you are in Christ.

For you shall surely be transformed as, in you, God increases more.
And become a woman of true excellence bringing honor to her Lord.”

It is evident that through the ages women have been submissive and lower than men.  However, when Jesus came He elevated woman to their rightful, equal place along side of man.  We have different roles but none better than the other.  The divine message concerning Christians through the Apostle Paul is this: “You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  If you belong to Christ, than you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”   Galatians 3:26-29
