Asking questions is crucial to discipleship.
I’ve grown much from inviting older women to coffee and peppering them with questions like this:
“What was the most difficult trial in your life and how did God guide you through it?”
One woman buried her teenage son, another’s husband inadvertently killed their baby, another aborted her child, yet another rebuilt her marriage after adultery.
I’ve grown immensely not from waiting for another woman to seek me out to mentor me, but from the initiative that molded Jesus in me from countless conversations with women willing to put Him on display.
It’s right that we live in glass houses and let others see in so we can live the one another’s. It’s biblical to be transparent, confess, comfort, encourage.
It’s right that we are always ready to explain to everyone who asks us to give an account for the hope that we have.
Discipleship is simply pivoting to share what we’ve learned so far.
As we appropriate God’s Word in our own life and watch it bear fruit, we can’t help but share it with others. We’re eager for them to discover the glories of Christ and victory over sin as we have!
Disciplers have one thing in common, they have no use for pretending.
Like Jesus, they are the same person wherever you find them, home, church, work, school. Unlike Jesus, they freely admit they are works in progress willingly to help other works in progress become more like their Savior.
With that in mind, y’all have been sweetly asking me really great questions that I’m so honored to answer to the best of my ability.
My arms and hands are quite weak but I can still type with one finger. (please pray God preserves this ability!?)
My spiritual gift is encouragement, so that means God wired me with a compulsion to help others find God’s grace and mercy in their time of need.
Believers are designed to bless each other. God has used you to bless me immensely, I hope He’ll use me to bless you too. So I’m going to randomly post and answer some of your questions. I’ve found women all over the world ask the same questions, so I hope this will be helpful!
