Why Titus24U?

I have had a few people ask why I chose Titus24U for the name of my blog, so let me explain...

In 2008, when I first began this blog I was in the process of writing, "Letters from Leanne - The Beauty of a Spiritual Mother-Daughter Relationship."  From the title you can see that Titus 2:3-5 was a very important piece of scripture.  The passage says, "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.  Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 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."  

Spiritual mothering has been vital in my life and continues to be today!  God has worked immensely through other women in my life - teaching me, showing me, loving me.  The connections we make with one another truly do make a difference - they touch hearts and change lives!!

But, I know our life is about more than the relationships and connections we share with one another.  Our relationship with Christ and our connection with Him in a personal way must supersede everything!!  He is our grace, salvation, hope, strength, and redemption!!  Which is exactly what Titus 2:11-14 says, "For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good."

Titus 2 is a short chapter in a small book, but its message is a powerful one!!  Our connection with HIM is the reason our connections with one another matter at all!!  So friend Titus 2 truly is 4 U!!!  I pray your visit here has reminded you to connect with Him and encouraged you to connect with one another - He truly does want to work in you and through you to touch a heart and change a life!  And I believe when you do that for another, He will do the same for you!!
