SEASONS OF LIFE

By Jayme Hull −

Each season of life brings its own identity for each one of us. As the seasons change, so do we. Some of us love warm colors and bright sunshine and others treasure the cool breezes and snowy days. Some seasons of life hold good memories while others may be colored with sadness. But God is always in every situation.

It was never God’s plan for us to weather the seasons of life alone. The Holy Spirit is your ultimate Mentor. Our heavenly Father planned it, Jesus Christ made our salvation possible and the Holy Spirit is with us on this Earth to guide and walk us through it.

As a mature and wise woman of God we have life experiences that the Holy Spirit has used to teach us to be more like Christ. Now is the time to step up and begin to pour our lives into the next generation of believers as their mentors.

We can see the examples of Mentoring in the Bible with Naomi and Ruth, Moses and Joshua, Elijah and Elisha and many others. Clearly, God’s plan is for the older and wiser godly person to mentor the younger, inexperienced person as they seek to know the Lord more intentionally.

Sharing our life experiences with the younger women in the next generation is our calling and privilege. Mentoring is not something we need to work at. As mentors we are simply sharing our life experiences and helping others to have the courage to follow Christ in their daily lives.

“From the wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive. Kind words are like honey-sweet to the soul and healthy to the body” (Proverbs 16:24-25 NLT).

We are teaching other women how to daily apply the Word of God and abide in Christ. Would you consider praying the following statements as you seek God’s will for your life as a Mentor.

  1. Lord, open my eyes to the woman you would like me to mentor.
  2. Lord, I give you complete control of my life. I am available. Use me!
  3. Lord, give the two of us a divine appointment and bring us together.
  4. Speak Lord! Your servant is listening.

Be encouraged to pour out your heart to the Lord and trust Him for the answers.

“Be somebody to someone.” Mother Teresa

God may have a plan to entrust you with the next Esther or Deborah of the twenty-first century who needs a godly mature women to walk beside her with wisdom and guidance.

Will you be the one to say Yes, Lord! I will be the one! I will be a mentor.
