It had been a whirlwind!
Written by Pat Klein
I suddenly found myself needing to buy a newer vehicle asap, and dispose of our very old vehicle (something my husband used to do). It was almost overwhelming. Then inaccurate information from an insurance agent caused lots of confusion. The result was distress and also a strong potential for misunderstanding with a Christian from another culture who wanted to buy our old car.
Caught in a maelstrom of thoughts and emotions, I couldn’t sleep. Then the Lord graciously reminded me to TRUST – He’d worked things out for us many times before, and he would work again. Knowing close friends were also praying, I slept.
By sundown the next day, everything had changed! Incorrect information was clarified. And the resulting problems just dissolved!!
God doesn’t always resolve issues that fast. But I LOVE, LOVE! when He does, and I love sharing with others what God has done. More, I’ve learned that it’s important to write these events down, so they aren’t forgotten.
All night long I prayed, … but my soul was not comforted … I am too distressed even to pray! … But then I recall all you have done, O Lord; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. … You are the God of great wonders! 
We will not hide these truths from our children: we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders. … He commanded our ancestors to teach their children, … so each generation should set its hope anew on God. … Then they will not be like their ancestors — stubborn, rebellious, and unfaithful … They forgot what he’d done — the great wonders he’d shown them.
We must tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord!
And when we do, consider which will have more impact: “God has blessed me so much!”, or “Let me tell you about a time …”
Telling what God has done in our lives is one important tool in mentoring others. Women Together is currently offering an online course in Mentoring: Investing in People who will invest in Others. Investing in mentoring others can be powerfully effective in building character, and helping others grow in their own calling from God. See www.women-together.org/mentoring-course for more information.
Imagine with me Sarah telling her grandchildren about the time God rescued her from a terrible situation in the Negev that Abraham had put her into.
Or Mary telling young Timothy or Julia about the time the angel appeared to her.
Or Hagar telling Ishmael’s kids about when they were saved from certain death in the desert.
Let me proclaim your power to this new generation.
Your mighty miracles to all who come after me. 
What up-to-date story do you have, that you can share with someone this week? There is joy waiting for you just ahead…!
