The Second Cup

After my Dad died, an older woman in my church offered comfort to me, as we journeyed together in Coffee Break.  Jenny seemed to notice when I was a little emotional, and she offered her love and care, during a time, when my own mother was miles away.  Although she would never had said she was my mentor, I was nurtured by this woman of faith.
The Second CupI’ve been involved with Coffee Break for about 24 years, since my Steve was a ‘babe in arms’.  I have grown through the study, but also through the fellowship and nurturing of many women.  It begs the question, who are we mentoring?  Who are we discipling?  Who are we coaching to be a leader in her sphere of influence?

In the words of 2Timothy 2:2, we are encouraged to continuously pass on our faith:
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 

I wonder what might happen if all of us would intentionally mentor one other person.  Is there a young woman, in your church or community, who you could mentor?  Imagine how blessed someone would be if you would begin to pour into her life.  I challenge you to determine today, to bless and walk alongside someone in the journey.  Pray for her.  Pray with her.  Send a note or a card.  Offer practical support.  Or mentor someone in their journey.

I invite you to pray.  Is God leading you to someone who needs your support?

    I love this, we are not asked to feed the five thousand, just walk with one. All of a sudden, that is not so daunting, thank you Marian for this reminder. After all, where two or more are gathered, great things can be done in His name!
    I have most enjoyed going thru this lovely blog, may God bless it and may it be a great way to connect and express… it, all of it !

    HUGS, Marg
