Today was a day of change. I watched as a portion of the Bible was lived out before my very eyes... in living color. (Titus 2)
Today I stepped down from leading my small group Bible study for our last six-week segment. Taking my place is a brand new leader, Heidi. She is a younger woman and loves Jesus. It is now her turn to step out in faith and begin to teach others.
I never thought of myself as a woman who would lead or disciple a younger woman. Who knew?
God did and in His wisdom He placed Heidi and I together for this very purpose…..And it is wonderful to move aside and watch the Lord shine His light upon a young woman who was scared and nervous today but oh, so willing to lead because she loves Jesus. The gals in the study loved her.
I am thankful the Lord allowed me to see His word in action and deeply humbled He allowed me to be part of His plan. (I love having a Front Row Seat)
The funny thing is…. I think it's me, who still needs years of shepherding…. I hang on every word and soak up every minute I have to talk with an older Christian woman. I am richer for it and profoundly blessed.
God is so good. His ways are always the best and His Word proves to be fulfilling, joy-filled and absolutely true, day-in, day-out! Hallelujah!
