Woman to Woman: The Truth Is…

Talking to women today. Woman to Woman. 

This will be our platform for Wednesdays here.

Learning to disciple one another to Truth in Christ.

This is heavy on my heart. There are things you and I need to be working on. In our hearts. To influence our homes. Our marriages. Our children. Our relationships.

Woman to Woman. We are going to flesh it out together. I would love for you to join me.

If you’re a writer…and if you’re a woman with a heart, then you’re a writer…I would be honored to hear your thoughts.

Wednesdays will be our time around the table sipping a cup of coffee together (or tea or juice…whatever makes you happy). We will hash out our thoughts, fears, doubts, and above all, we will ENCOURAGE.

That’s my hearts cry for this place in the blog world to be…a home of encouragement for women. To grow together. Laugh together. Cry together. All for HIS glory. 

I’m starting this journey with a list of “truths” as I see them.

You may agree. You may disagree. Let’s discuss in love and share what your truths are as they may differ.

May we find real Truth together and learn to love in it and grow from it.

The common thread is LOVE. Sounds trite. But it’s not. It’s just that simple.

Love has to be our motivation and will be the only thing that binds us together.
We have the greatest example to follow in Jesus. Let Him Lead.

Will you join me? Woman to Woman? Create a blog post with your own truths and post the link or leave your thoughts in the comment section below. Use #w2w to tweet truths worth sharing. Can’t wait to see where your truths lie and how close I bet some of us already are…

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

The truth is…
We don’t need more self-esteem…We need more God esteem.

The truth is…
The woman in the mirror is not who God sees, He sees who is behind the mask.

The truth is…
We were not created as lions to roar… We were created as daughters to love and be loved.

The truth is…
We spend way too much time talking about one another, than talking about how to help one another.

The truth is…
We say a lot more with our actions and our gaze, than we ever do with our mouth.

The truth is…
We put our hopes and dreams in a man, instead of the only Man that can ever fulfill them.

The truth is…
We constantly compare ourselves to one another, rather than the One whose image we were created to reflect.

The truth is…
We want desperately to be accepted by everyone around us, and don’t realize we are already accepted by the only One who matters.

The truth is…
We have a hard time forgiving ourselves for past sins, and forget they’ve already been forgiven.

The truth is…
We put on a front to make people think we are happy and life is great…and we. are. not. and it. is. not.

The truth is…
We don’t know how to love fully, because we’ve never let ourselves be fully loved by the only One who loves completely.

The truth is…
The less time we spend getting to know Jesus, the less we care about Him.

The truth is…
The more time we spend in the Word, the more time we will want to spend in the Word.

The truth is…
We say we don’t have time to do a lot of things, but we have time to do everything. we. want.

The truth is…
Your truths may look very different than mine, but we are still women.

Created by the same God. Created to love Him and one another.

The truth is…
The truth hurts, but it is still the TRUTH. In truth and truth alone, will we ever be free to love and be loved completely.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
(John 14:6)

What are your truths?

Graciously seeking Him,
Meredith

  8. Beautifully put, Meredith. Just lovely. I do not know if I will have time this evening to join in, but you have definitely given me a lot to think about.
    I really liked this part: “The truth is…
    We say we don’t have time to do a lot of things, but we have time to do everything. we. want.”

    Lots of food for thought. I will try to post tonight. If not, I will tomorrow. God bless you!

  9. Meredith, I love this idea! You are brilliant! 🙂 My truths? A few are:
    We could ALL use a little encouragement.
    God is the greatest Encourager through His Word.
    His plans and purposes for our lives cannot be thwarted.
    We are all dealing with something.
    We are in this life together, and we need to help each other glorify God in this world.
    With your permission, I am posting a similar post on my blog tonight with your idea of #W2W, only with a slightly different slant. Thank you for allowing me to jump on this bandwagon. You just started a movement, my friend!
    Blessings to you!

    • Yes, Julie, yes! We do all need encouragement and we have the greatest Encourager in our Father. What a great reminder. And yes, we are all dealing with something. I can’t wait to read your post and I so appreciate you sharing your truths with us here. 🙂 I do hope this is the start of some woman to woman encouragement. 😉

  10. What a great idea! I’m in!
    I always visualize the whole truth telling process like a mental re-wallpapering. Stripping the lies off the walls of my mind, and putting up the truth.
    The blog I post for is our church blog; I’m not the Wednesday writer, but I will share this with the woman who posts on Wednesday, so she can join in on your truth telling. 🙂

    • Ok, sounds great, Amy! You can share your thoughts here, too. 🙂 And you need your own blog, as well. Just sayin’… 😀 I love your writing and I love the visual of stripping off lies like stripping wallpaper from our minds. Exactly. Thank you…
