07/21/08 - At the Well

It excites me to share with you my latest adventure: At The Well!

Chelsea has asked me to be one of the hosts of At The Well. The well is a place for women to gather and share, listen, be up-lifted, and be with other Christian women (thanks to the Internet)! Chelsea asked the hostesses to share: What does being a Titus 2 women mean to me?

Let's read Titus 2:1-5

But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

For me, being a Titus 2 woman is one who has walked ahead on her path of life. She's walked through life with integrity, love, passion, patience, purity, and honesty. She loves God's Word and it is her plumb line for her decisions in life.

Whatever season she's walked through, she is able to pass along the wisdom she learned to those who are still in that particular season.

I pray that God will use me as a Titus 2 women to those who are walking the path of emotional purity and waiting patiently (or not so patiently at times) for God to bring their mate!

Thanks Chelsea for allowing me to be apart of this "well"!

I love your take on the Titus 2 woman. "She loves God's Word and it is her plumb line for her decisions in life.

Whatever season she's walked through, she is able to pass along the wisdom she learned to those who are still in that particular season.

I love that description because it doesn't put an age limit on the Titus 2 woman. Older women may just refer to women that are ahead of the game...been there, done that, let me tell you about the potholes for you to avoid.

I reaaly like how you put it that a Titus 2 woman goes through the seasons of life and is able to pass on the wisdom she gained from her experiences. May we all endeavor to not only learn through all of the seasons we have in our lives, but to also pass along the wisdom from lessons learned to others.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
