The year was 2004 ~
I began to cry out to God
My family would travel to Cabo with family friends. Little did we know a rip-tide was take our feet out from under us and end up into the waters. It was there that I began to cry out to God for help. There were two strangers walking and jumped into the waters to help us. Later, we thought of these two people as angels, because they seem to disappear and say thank God not us. I had enough time in the water to promise God I would teach, if I had a second chance. Simply to do what he has called me to without waver. I can honestly say that I haven't stop teaching a Wednesday class for women since that time. I co-lead with Darlene and I see how my own life has changed over the years.
AFTER SAYING YES ~
I allow God to use my life in leading others. I don't know all the answers, but I certainly have seen a lot in my life. The power of prayer and answers that seemed impossible, became possible! A trust in God and praying for great friendships. We need to stay connected to other positive people. As I grow older, I see the importance of learning more daily and my life has become an example to others. The Bible says: teach younger women and be self-controlled.
Titus 2:3-5 New International Version
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Older women can be of any age. A person who is older than you, can be called an older woman. A woman who invest in herself and in God. Daily praying and believing that greater things are ahead. Choices to stay positive and see the best in things. There is a fine balance in it all. Never let anyone mistreat you, but search your heart and ask God to help you know the right thing to do in life. Even if you are not married, you are to work on yourself and teach others. Life is a better place when we just connect and share views of life. Leaning toward God's word and planting hope daily.
Male or female we are created in God for a bigger purpose. Let your example shine brighter today than yesterday. Share hope and pray for peace in situations for family and friends. So much can happen in one day and we might forget that God is a prayer away. Not everything will turn out like we think it should and our choices definitely affect us and others. Happy new day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Be self-controlled today and share hope. Asking God to heal those who need health, financial miracles and so much more for each of you who read this, your family and friends.
