Wanting more...

Have you ever been in a place where you wanted more from your walk with Christ?

I want more of Him.

I want more of Him in me.

I want more of  Him emmulating through me and less of me.

Does any of that make sense?

I want to be who He wants me to be.

I want to live out His commands in my life.

I want to please HIM and only Him.

I woke this morning with this desire of wanting more.. what do you do with that? These are the times I wish I had a mentor. Someone wise, strong in faith, that could give me direction on how I can channel this desire in the right direction.

Do mentors even exist anymore?  There was a time that a young woman knew that she a mentor because normally it was her mother. So many of us women are wondering around lost, trying to figure out how to do things, how to figure out life problems on our own. (which is why we fall)  Because like wild animals we have been left to the wild to figure things out, and sometimes we get chewed on by a wild animal because of naivety and lack of experience.

Help me to find You Lord as I seek your face this morning...

Thanks for letting me ramble!

    It seems as though the art of mentorship is gone. (I'm not sure that's even a word.) So many women cry out for a mentor. Those cries go unheard. When I was younger, I was blessed to have great mentors. I had church mothers who were my bbfs. If I was just starting out with marriage and raising a family, I would be in some serious trouble because women don't get mentored anymore.
    There's a young mom in my church who clings to me. She said no one encourages her in her role as a wife or a mother but me. Very sad and it shouldn't be that way. My poor daughter is already feeling lonely because her friend is pregnant as well and plans to return to work after the baby is born. Ruthie asked me if there are any young women who stay home with their babies anymore. She's hoping to find some other moms her age and build friendships with them.
    As you can see, I'm passionate about this and can go on and on. Forgive me for hijacking your blog with my long comment. *hugs*
