“These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God.” ~Titus2:4-5
I’m sitting here.. having one of those moments where I have sooo much to say… but don’t know how to organize it all so that it makes sense.. or is at least understandable.
So… I’ll just try to take you through the last few days and see if that will work.
Monday evening – was the first meeting of a Young Adult Ladies Bible study that I am facilitating in my home. God laid it on my heart awhile back to host a Beth Moore study for 20 something’s in my home. I’ve hosted 30 and 40 something’s, but this age was a new adventure.
My girls are 20 something’s, so I guess God has been allowing me to see how more and more of their friends searching for direction, guidance, and purpose. And that’s where the Bible study came to be.
With that study going on, I asked a few dear friends of mine to pray about maybe joining in and being a Titus 2 to these girls. A mentor type. One dear friend said yes and I am so very thankful for her.
Monday was night was AWWWESOOOME!! 10 girls ( with a few that couldn’t make the first one) packed my living room. We laughed, we played an ice breaker game to get know each other, and we watched the first lesson. The girls loved it and so did I.
Tuesday evening – A Mom’s Night Out .. Woo Hoo!! I had the amazing opportunity to see a test screening of Mom’s Night Out with my beautiful friend. A fun night out for the two of us. The movie is hilarious, encouraging, and faith filled and I’ll tell you more about that in another post..but for now, this is where my head started to fill with thoughts..
Sitting there in the movie, laughing hysterically and being so encouraged, I started thinking.. I remember these days.. when my girls were little, stress was in abundance and life just seemed a little chaotic. When a Mom’s Night Out was precious and few. Boy, I miss those days… sometimes… but enjoying where I am now.
Than I start to hear something..
It’s not really audible, just a spirit whisper..
Uh oh… I know what this is.. God’s about to shake things up a little..
I slowly starting having thoughts like this..
So Mikki, what are you doing with all those memories from when your girls were little?
I blessed you with some really great insights and experiences raising them, are pouring that back out?
You asked for Titus 2 woman, but are you being one to the younger moms… through your blog?
These moments aren’t always easy. I tend to wrestle A LOT with God when He’s about to stretch me. It can be a little stressful/painful at times when God starts to chisel, but this time.. I thought I’d give in early.
So hear I sit. Rambling on.. probably not making a lot of sense… but type I must.
I get a sense of these things..
That this 20 something group is going to be something amazingly awesome. That I’m going to see God direct, guide, stretch, and grow these girls in their faith. How awesome is that.
And also, that my blog is going to take a slight turn. A refocus maybe..
more sharing of my faith – boldly and unapologetically
more encouraging – being more open to sharing what God has taught me.. a pouring back out so to speak
It will be interesting. It will be different. But that’s what I love about my God.. He is always keeping life amazingly different.
Have a beautifully Christ filled day.
