Discipleship is a large part of TTR…and to be honest…it’s my favorite part! The Lord gives us an opportunity to pour His love into others so in return, they can do the same! Isn’t that our purpose on this side of heaven…putting His love into action? James 2:20…Faith without works is dead…comes to mind. So does Matthew 28:19-20…Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…
One of the reasons I held onto my job for as long as I did was because I love seeing other’s grow and begin seeing themselves as Christ sees them! I had already felt led to discontinue leading CR; so if I quit my job as a crisis counselor, how could I reach others who need and want to be discipled?
Well, it didn’t take long for the Lord to reveal that to me! After I put in my two week notice, I quickly realized that I was no longer going to be bound by counselor/client rules and regulations. We were going to have the freedom to CONNECT (remember that word from my first trip to IN) anyway and anywhere we wanted!
After this epiphany, the Lord put several women on my heart to ask if they would like to be a part of a Bible study. From these women, they suggested several more women! I quickly saw that the Lord was using this as an excuse to CONNECT them to each other! I believe our group will more than double next week! How cool is that?
During one of the first TTR trainings I went to, Kyle prophesied over me. (I posted a short video clip on August 29 if you would like to take peek.) What amazes me, is during my first week at home after leaving my job…I have already able to live it out! Psalms 37: 4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart! I am excited to see how He will continue using these ladies and this group for His glory!
