Along for the Ride - part 4

It's been awhile since I've sent out an update on my Titus2 group.  Last time I checked in, we had just started our 3rd topic, Identity in Christ.  Before I share where we are now, let me catch you up on what we've done thus far...

Month 1 - Intimacy with God // "A Place of Quiet Rest" by Nancy DeMoss
Month 2 - Prayer // "Teach me to Pray" by Andrew Murray
Month 3 - Identity in Christ // "Classic Christianity" by Bob George
Month 4 - Purpose & Priorities // "Restless" by Jennie Allen
Month 5 - Peace & Contentment // "Calm my Anxious Heart" by Linda Dillow

Last month, during the "Purpose and Priorities" topic, my girls had big revelations.  God met them and opened their eyes and hearts, growing them closer to Him and more like Christ in the process.  One of them was called to pack up everything she had and leave everything familiar, moving to a new state together with her husband to start a new life there.  God was so sweet to nudge them every step of the way, opening doors wide open, making their paths straight and confirming His will and His plan for their life.  They left behind painful memories and shut doors, entering into a new season - a season of life, community, and joy.

Another mentee was able to put into words what God's calling is for her life.  It's a calling to bring "order to chaos".  By bringing this revelation to her, God put words to a purpose that was already so much a part of who she is and her giftings.  Now, as she sees life and her role through a new lense, she is able to fulfill her calling with intention and purpose.

My third mentee is in a season of healing and trust.  Her faith was rocked a couple years ago and she is still "rebuilding".  During this past month, God showed her a hard truth - that she has been diminishing the power of the cross.  Wow.  Hard to swallow that revelation, but so powerful in helping her breakthrough into a life of freedom, into living out Christ's victory, and bringing her into a new season in her relationship with God.

All of these stories are about growth.  Growth not because of myself, the mentor, and what I know or what I've done.  But about God - what He has done and is doing in their lives.  It's so freeing when I step back and realize this - that it's not about me having all the answers or living a perfect life for them to learn from.  It's about living out my broken life, falling short every day, but growing every day in my surrender to Him and seeking His face in all that I do.  And by doing that, and gently nudging my girls in that same direction, it's amazing to watch what God will do!

It's our job to keep our eyes fixed on Him.  It's His job to do everything else. 

 

For His glory and the next generation,
