The Beauty of Blogging: Teach what is Good

As you can see, I am a bit of a baby in the blogging world, never mind to the Carnival of Beauty which this week travels to relevantblog to extol the Beauty of Blogging!

Just last week I decided that I was going to put my thoughts on to the ether that is the Internet. I've kept a diary for years - and I do cringe and laugh as I read about the traumas of love and exams as a thirteen year old girl! But what made me decide to blog?

Reading other blogs can be fun, educational, challenging. Women whom I have never met, through their writing, have taught me and made me think. Even though we are thousands of miles apart, women, from all over the world, from all Christian traditions, with many different experiences, whom I never even met, have taught me, provoked me, and encouraged me.

They emulate the commands of Paul in his letter to Titus, training and discipling younger women through their good words and deeds. For someone who did not grow up in a Christian or even churchgoing home, this has been so important in shaping who I am as I go against the politically correct teaching of our society and pursue biblical womanhood.

This issue has been laid deep upon my heart for a long time now. I've read many books and articles about what it means in theory and in practice. I have spoken to women whom I admire about how to live joyful and obedient lives in a society with a very different agenda.

Considering all this, I have started this blog to be accountable in my thoughts, words and actions as I strive to become a woman after God's own heart. I don't expect or aspire to have the same impact - and I don't know even if anyone will read it! But for me, and I hope some day for my future children, I will be able to look at my journey as a Christian, looking back at all the goodness that God has shown me and praising him for how far he has taken me.

Finally, to all the women who have taught me what is good without even knowing it, I thank you now and look forward to thanking you when we meet in glory!

Older women...are to be reverent in behavior...They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled... Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned.
Titus 2:3-4,6-8

Muchas gracias, Señor, por su commentario. Por mis amigos que no hablan castellano, responderé en inglés.

Submission is a much misunderstood concept. Society has this idea that it involves mindless obedience to whatever the husband demands. Within a Christian marriage, submission is about meeting one another's needs with respect and love.

In his letter to the Ephesians (5:22-33), Paul tells the women to "submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord" and the husbands to "love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...love their wives as their own bodies."

Again, in Colossians 3:18-19, Paul says, "Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them."

What a responsibility on both sides to love and cherish one another!

Sadly, in every country of the world, this has been denied leading to the oppression and abuse of women. Be assured that the Bible completely condemns those who do this.

¡Dios lo bendiga!

You said, "...looking back at all the goodness that God has shown me and praising him for how far he has taken me."

I certainly echo that desire.

Thanks for sharing yourself so openly on your blog. I think it is making an impact on others just as the words of others are making an impact on you.

Welcome to the blogosphere!

I loved your response to Jorge - I believe submission is so often misunderstood. My heart does go out to women who are suppressed by the misunderstanding of Biblical truth.

Found you through the Carnival this week :o)

A friend and I were just discussing the lack of Titus 2-style instruction in the church these days. What a success-driven power-hungry world we live in!

I enjoyed your thoughts on the matter.
