A Clarion Call

Whenever I am looking for boldness or confidence regarding issues, I look to the Word of God: a lamp for my feet, a light for my path. His truth resounds with clarity. Saturate yourself in His word; your mind is renewed, your faith strengthened, and you are prepared to sound the clarion call.

Sunday begins a several week series on Titus 2 womanhood; I'm the instructor. I've taught such topics for several years now. Nonetheless, I need fresh conviction. I am not content to teach the written word only; it must live in my heart, inspiring passion. With issues of womanhood being challenged on every front, I tend to lose my edge. This one time feminist can feel intimidated about facing the deception and vile wickedness of the feminist mantra. Without fresh faith from the Word (faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God), I feel weak, unsure.

A thorough review of familiar scriptures revives my heart. But I still need more; more clarity of thought to face this enemy; more cohesive renderings of concepts to formulate in my mind. How can I present these truths in a way that will pierce deception? What will help troubled minds stay attentive and hardened hearts comprehend? How can women and men so indoctrinated with such false and destructive notions be persuaded?

This battlefront is treacherous. Pitfalls abound, the path is ridden with unseen snares. But engagement is essential. We must not let this go unchallenged. A clarion call is needed. His truth must be proclaimed - boldly, quickly, and regularly. His Word is the answer. It cuts through the darkness like a laser beam (alright, alright, I admit it - my eight year old, a devout Star Wars fan, has influenced my rendition of scripture...) piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, discerning intents of the heart. The enemy's falsehoods are revealed for what they are - wicked, filthy lies constructed to wreak havoc and destruction of all God intended.

I saw this written in my notes: His creation order was intended to prevail for the good of all.

So for the greater good, by the grace of God I will search the Word and declare the Truth. His ways and purposes are so desperately needed in this broken world.

Is this being taped? I sure would love to have a refresher course on hand.

I would also be interested in tapes of your Titus 2 series. It's a great series!

And I'm so sorry we couldn't make it yesterday. Between dealing with difficulties with our children and a sinus headache, Josh punctured his foot on our garden fence. It was just a long weekend. We're so bummed we missed out on seeing the Browns and all of you.
