Plugging away at my new office job has granted me a new respect for the 9-5 workforce. There’s much to learn and I’m thankful for any help from patient teachers who explain new tasks. I’m learning from their experience.
After months, I look like I know what I’m doing behind my desk, however I’m just getting started. In my other job, many years of being a wife and mom have granted me the title, professional. Surely if you’ve done something more than 20 plus years you’re considered an expert 😉
I actually have something I can teach on these subjects. In God’s word we are called Ambassadors, for God. Just as Paul wrote in the New Testament we have been commissioned, as long-time married women: to lead the younger women coming along behind us.
We are exhorted to encourage newer wives and mom’s to do what is good, to love their husbands and children, to live wisely and shoot for purity, to care for their homes and live with respect toward their husbands. We are to boldly lead by example.
This is a job where those yielded to God are truly considered professionals. Both mistakes and successes are treasures of wisdom. With our confessions, areas where we blew it can be avoided and successes we enjoyed can be passed on. Our experiences are valuable gifts to be shared.
I so appreciate the older women in my life who have encouraged both my motherhood and marriage. They have been teachers of blessings with professional expertise.
