Beyond Reciting the Verses Jun10

As mentors, we bring hope and courage to younger women when we share from our personal experiences about how God has been faithful to provide everything needed . . . in every situation we’ve faced.  The depth of our mentoring is much deeper, and more insightful and discerning, if we’ve truly experienced God’s presence and the power of God’s Word.  Though none of us really want to walk through turbulent waters; when we do, it results in us experiencing God and standing on the truth of His Word, and not just “being able to recite the verses.”

My son and his wife recently had a son born with some physical challenges that he’ll carry through his entire life.  This was not the plan I would have chosen for my family.  While I want everything to be perfect in my family… no trials… no challenges, I also know that’s not how we mature and learn to trust in the Lord.  Yes, even though I would have chosen a different path than the one God has asked us to walk; Gabriel’s birth was indeed God’s plan, and we know that God has an incredible life ahead for him.  He’ll experience the love of God and his family, and will impact this world for God’s glory!

None of us will have a perfect life.  As we mentor younger women, they’ll have some challenges along life’s journey, and some of these will be big challenges.  We desire that the young women we mentor grow in their relationship with the Lord and be so grounded in the truth of His Word, that when the trials come, they will be able to stand firm.  During these times, you’ll want to share the ways God has been faithful in your life and share God’s promises from scripture in order to build faith in their lives.   As Romans 10:17 says, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”

God is building in each of us a unique story of His faithfulness, so we might come alongside others to encourage, plant seeds of hope, in order that they may be conformed to the image of Christ and He receive all the glory.

“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”  2 Corinthians 1:4 (NLT)

 

For His glory and the next generation,
