In The Word // Titus 2:3-5

June 10, 2014


This study through Titus is wrecking my heart in the best way possible. It is pointing out answers to prayers I've been praying for weeks. It is bringing up questions that I have been ignoring. It is touching all areas of my life right now. I know all of these things are from the Lord, and that makes me feel so much happiness in my heart.

One of the goals on my 101 in 1001 project that I have been putting off has been brought to the surface thanks to this study through Titus. Finding a mentor. Just saying that makes me nervous. When I typed out #14 on that list for the first time many months ago, I had a picture of that woman in my head. A woman that is strong, kind, patient, loving, honest and challenging. My heart has been pulling toward one particular woman for a long time now. From the moment I met her I knew she could be a wonderful person to DO LIFE with. I honestly think that is the best part of having a mentor. Doing life together, learning from their past and going to them with your future. Making a bond that is founded on the Lord and wanting to become closer through Him. That is what I’m yearning for.

Now the hard part happens…. Ask her. Taking the effort to make that first step. I’m not going to lie, I’m very nervous about it. I wonder what her response will be. If she feels like she will have the time to do this or even the drive to do it, but I keep going back to that intuition I have in my heart about it. I truly feel that the Lord is pointing her out for a reason and I don’t want to ignore that anymore. No more excuses. It’s time & I pray for His strength to complete the task and take the first step. This step could potentially be one of the best decisions I've ever made and that is so thrilling.

Do you have a mentor? How did you go about asking them??
Or are you a mentor for someone?

  1. A mentor is something I would absolutely love to have in my life. I'm so glad you've found someone who you feel is worthy of that. I had a wonderful mentor during my college years and she was absolutely wonderful- many of my life decisions were made after talking them through with her. The wisdom that someone older, wiser, and more experienced in all areas - emotionally and spiritually- is invaluable! I agree, though, asking would make me nervous, too! I bet if you're feeling a pull towards this woman, the Holy Spirit is doing something in her heart, too!

  2. So good. I wonder what asking looks like too, and totally fear it. The quote you posted reall spoke to me today.

  3. Cassie, I'm in the same boat. There is this AMAZING woman that goes to our church who I would just love to meet with on a regular basis. She is one of those women that has a life-giving presence, you know? But like you, I'm also really scared to ask her and take that next step! Praying for boldness for the both of us!
