Last Discipleship of the Year

We had our last discipleship group this morning with Jan. I'm excited to have finished an amazing year, but sad that my Tuesday mornings will no longer be spent with these awesome girls, and incredible Godly wisdom from a woman I really respect!  As I was sitting, listening, drinking my Starbucks (because did I mention that we meet at 6 AM, which means this girl is up by 5 on Tuesdays getting ready for work) I started thinking about the things that motivate the women in the room to come to this group every morning. The majority of the girls are single in our group. We are all roughly the same age, and we all share a similar interest in our futures; Wife-ness (?) and Motherhood. We all deeply desire those things. So I think the consensus was that us 20-something young women come to soak in the knowledge Jan has for us so that we can better ourselves to be great wives, and eventually great mommy's.
I also thought about what qualities we as women possess that make us beautiful to men. As women we desire deeply to be found attractive. Hello! This is why we wear makeup, and take forever to get ready, and spend (too much) money on new clothes, and buy the latest curling iron for our hair. But really, and truly, we want a man to find who we are, our spirit, our nature, our hearts to be the most attractive thing of all. This is why we go to Discipleship. We go to grow closer to the Father who created us. I want to know my Father so deeply. I want to know my Father who created my brown hair and blue eyes. He is the one who's opinion matters, but I also know He created a man on earth who's opinion will matter to me greatly too. So we go to Discipleship to grow more intimate with God, and to gain a better understanding of what laying your life down as a wife would look like. I'm excited for when that time comes, but I am content growing and waiting and surrendering now, until that time. Already can't wait for the fall so Discipleship can resume!

Love and Learning
