New Tuesday Tidbits Study!!!

Titus 2:3-5
 the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things—
that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

I do not feel as though I am in the position of 'older women' mentioned in this verse. I am very much in need of being taught and mentored myself. However, even as I pray asking what I should write about, I am pressed with the thought that there are women younger than I am that I can teach. 

I am also aware that there are women out there that do not have the luxury of having an older lady in their lives. I believe that we can all learn so much from these verses.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to break down these verse phrase by phrase. I am hoping to gain more understanding and insight on my role as a wife and mom. 

There are 7 truths here that I am going to focus on for the next 7 weeks.

Wives should:

  1. love their husbands
  2. love their children
  3. be discreet
  4. chaste
  5. homemakers
  6. good 
  7. obedient to their own husbands 

There is a lot that we as wives and moms can learn from these 3 verses. I am so excited to dive in headfirst! 
Would you please join me next week as I begin a new edition of 'Tuesday Tidbits.'

Voice of Truth

I have a past.
I try to keep it hidden. I don't like to bring it up.
It is filled with hurts, both mine and others.
There is plenty of sin there too.

The Devil would love for me to live in my past. 
He loves to try and drudge up old hurts.
Sometimes he succeeds.
Recently, he has been succeeding way too frequently.

I have been questioning my calling. 
Thinking may be I really hadn't heard from God.
I mean how could He use me when....
there is so much that I could put to finish this sentence.

I have felt defeated as a wife, mom, and child of God.

Tonight, while driving, God reach down and touched my heart.
A song came on the radio. 
I felt uplifted. I literally felt my Father reach down into the pit 
of my despair and pick me up!

I pray that you are equally encouraged!
Happy Monday Momma! 
Be sure to listen to the Voice of Truth in all you do today!
