Titus 2 Tuesday's

Using Titus 2 to post about women who have inspired us.
This week was a hard week and I struggled with who has inspired me.I have so many to choose from once I sat down to think about it. So I decided to ask God which to use. He said"Sharla M" so Mrs. Tippett you'll have to tell her to read these because she isn't into the blog scene.Thanks.

Sharla M. Where do I start. God brought us together through a bad situation. You see Sharla had cancer, with not a good future. We took food to her family and we called and checked on them. Soon Sharla's cancer scare was over and she is cancer free. We started going to church together, hanging out , and were like 2 families put into one.We were joined at the hip you might say. People though we were sisters(which would have been ok) For a few years we never went a day with out speaking, now we go months. Funny how things turn out.

What inspires me about Sharla is she is VERY strong, in her mental strength and her faith God would heal her. She never doubted, even If I did. She kept our church running on faith. It was an exciting time, still is. She is the kind of person who if she can will do anything for you, she inspires me to be that way too.

My faith is stronger because of Sharla, so thank you Sharla for that.
I think God gives us friends in seasons and when we need them and then one day it changes. God always knows what we need when we need it.
Sharla and I will always be friends no matter the season . I love you girl.

Who inspires you? Comment and let me know.

Sharla & you are very lucky to call each other friends! I so agree about God giving us friends in seasons, and so many of my friendships take lots of work to stay in touch or they would just die. Thanks for sharing!! And I have a lot of people who inspire me- go to my blog to see!! :)

I think it's all in her name! HA! Just kidding! I'm so sorry I didn't get your message until late in the afternoon and I figured it was too late by then. I turn my phone on silent while I'm at school and often forget to turn it back on, so I don't hear it. I hope things turned out okay.

Praise God that Sharla is cancer free! People who cling to God and pray in faith for healing are always so amazing to have in your life!

God has blessed me with so many people along the way who have inspired me...I can't choose just one; but people who are willing to live their faith OUT LOUD in real ways is something that is touching my heart most these days!

I second everything thing you said about Sharla. I am so blessed to have her as a friend and second mom to Conner.

You've been on my heart this morning...praying for your speech this morning and I am praying that God will be El-Shaddai, the God Almighty of all blessings to each of us. El-Shaddai means the Breasty One Who nourishes and supplies our every need and fufills our every desire (like a new born depends completely on his mother). He is ALL-BOUNTIFUL AND ALL-SUFFICIENT. Looking forward to the next 11 weeks
