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. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 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.
This Titus 2 woman goes against who the world says I should be. I want to be a Godly woman, love my husband and future children well, and be pure, kind, and self-controlled. I pray that the Lord helps me to become the woman He wants me to be. By nature I am rebellious, selfish, bossy, and mean. The Lord has been hard at work in me for the 12 years I have been following Him, and I hope He continues.
Beautiful. Perfect photo
I haven’t been here in a LONG time–I’m sorry!
Busy summer with the girls and getting them ready for (and one back to) school.
When I need to remember my purpose on this planet, I go read this Titus passage- it doesn’t get put any simpler than that, does it?
You are so wise in asking Him to continue helping you–I have known Him for 20 years, and still need help every day!
This post reminded me of something C.S. Lewis said: We are what we believe we are.
We are women after God’s heart!
I love this verse. Thank you so much for sharing!
