Beautiful

At one time, I searched hard to find a way to put my interest in Bible history to use. I considered becoming a missionary, looked at going on for my doctorate, studied ancient languages, was tempted to become a pastor, tried to initiate a new Bible study using a timeline to map out major prophecies about the Christ, attended lectures about Biblical theology and Bible study, prayed, complained to my sisters in small group, felt stifled, and cried a lot. I was desperate to put my interest to good use!

Now, I'm feeling content to be used by the Lord in a quieter way. I'd be happy to encourage my fellow brothers and sisters in the truth day-by-day as we walk together on this path home. I'd be happy to share the astonishing news of Jesus with those around me if they will listen. I'd be happy to spin and dance in the light of God's word as I wait for Him to come - even if that's done from the quietest corners of the camp and not in the doorway of the temple proper. When Mary broke the costly jar of fragrant oil and anointed Jesus, some were indignant and rebuked her for the waste. She was not a famous priest or rabbi, but she loved the Lord and honored Him in a beautiful, quiet, and (very!) fragrant way. I want to be that kind of woman - a woman of the word - showing everyone that this Jesus is the Lord and that He is worthy to be praised.

"Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus. ...he greatly helped those who had believed..." Acts 18:24-28

"[let your beauty be] a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." 1 Peter 3:4

"Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?" Proverbs 20:6
