Book Study at work: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World (Joanna Weaver); up to Chapter 9 in 12 wk study. Inspired by Chp 8, Lessons from Lazarus in which she alludes to God as the great Storyteller:
Thank God this isn’t the end –
There’s a greater glory
Waiting to begin,
To make itself known
To God’s chosen
When the time is right,
Turning evil to good,
Darkness to light
Thank God there’s another page
To be turned
In this saga of life;
There’s redemption left to see,
His concluding remarks.
Thank God for a compassionate Author
A Storyteller who loves beyond reason,
Who lifts His pen and writes
“I love you, ______, tremendously –
That’s why I gave you life.”
Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer – new book I’m reading in response to this statement in Chp 8, ““We only trust people we know. If you’re struggling to trust God, it may be because you don’t really know God.” –Martha Tennison, women’s conference speaker
Recently became aware of a situation that smells like not disaster written all over it but destruction. I don’t know what I may be asked to do, whether to speak to someone concerning what’s going on or to remain silent and pray. It just seems as if this is a downhill spiral for them and the wheels have already been set in motion and turned toward destruction. But don’t discount God! No never, ever give up!
Also, as women and young ladies (some of us anyway), we need to be aware of what we put out in cyberspace – because in a lot of instances, once it’s out there, it’s out there – unretrievable. I’m sure I’ve said some untoward things in emails, blog posts, etc. So I’m certainly speaking to myself as well.
It seems like we are speaking in isolation sometimes, but we’re not. The walls of the web are just that, web-like. They have holes through which the smaller things get out, are filtered as waste.
As Christian women we need to be aware of our influence on younger ladies and that men are “listening”. To talk face-to-face in the company of others is one thing, to talk one-on-one in cyberspace, esp to the opposite sex, is another.
That’s my take anyway….
