My verse for 2012
Every year for the past dozen or so, Mrs. Roy has chosen a Bible verse to live by for the year. It's not very scientific; Mrs. Roy prays about it and looks around for verses that speak to where I am at that point in my life and then Mrs. Roy tries to apply that verse for a whole year. Some years Mrs. Roy gets bored with it and has to go back and look up the verse in July just to remember what it is. Some year the verse takes hold and really changes Mrs. Roy in some way. It was like that last year, as Mrs. Roy tried to be more open to whatever God brought my way.
Anyway, this year's verse is about being a Godly example to the young women in Mrs. Roy's life. It is amazing, not to mention intimidating, that God has very intentional instructions for Mrs. Roy at this point in my life! Mrs. Roy is constantly amazed at how God is into the details of our lives!
The verses Mrs. Roy has chosen are Titus 2:3-5:
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Mrs. Roy can tell it's going to be a great year!
