gals I'm hardly the type to make new year resolutions, first because it is so cliche and second because most plans like these lack follow-through because they are emotional spur of the moment resolutions. Instead, I prefer to start on major changes just when my spirit fills sensitized to. But yesterday as I sat in the Sunday service, a thought came to me that I am not even sure was related to the sermon. It was from Titus 2:3-5 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. I've always considered myself the younger woman who needs to be trained. But even opening myself to that is hard because I love my privacy and independence and I am not too crazy about people getting into my business. However, slowly I have learnt that I need to open up my life and challenges and issues to receive wisdom and grace from older godly women if I wish to become a godly mature woman, wife and mother. And they cant do that if I keep to myself. But this Sunday it struck me that I too can stick my nose up other young women's business and hopefully help them become more godly, better wives and mothers. May be I can encourage someone. May be I can become someone's friend. May be I will have the courage to give unsolicited advice because some things just have to be said and the patience to always be interested and available when needed. The thought is scary because I am still a mind-your-own-business type, there is a high likelihood that they will block me off or not be interested or I may not even have enough to give but hey! we stopped walking in fear; we walk in faith and obedience. He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply this seed for sowing and increase the harvest of my righteousness.
