Transforming Together: Authentic Spiritual Mentoring

From the heart of a Mentee

The following is written by a woman with whom I meet. This is from the heart of a Mentee....
"the wonderful thing about "being" in Christ is that the journey never
ends - we are always growing and evolving both as a mentor and as a
mentee. We can go as wide and as deep as our hearts are willing to go -
with the Lord as our guide, and strong women at our side.... I see the
role of mentor/ friend as someone who doesn't provide objective
counsel, but rather someone who strengthens our hand in God (1 Samuel
23:16). What makes you so special, dear lady, is that you recognize the
significance behind what John the Baptist teaches: that "Christ must
increase and we must decrease" (John 3:30). May all of us continue to
follow your loving example of what it means to be a mentor - full of
faith, friendship, and love, while being ever mindful of the joyful
responsibility and the privilege it is to be able to walk alongside
another sister and share in her life's journey - all for the glory of
God. I am so grateful to our precious Lord that He has allowed me to
grow alongside of you, binding are our hearts together in Him.... "

Thank you, Mentee, for your words of wisdom, perspective and encouragement.
Did you hear her heart, Mentor? Did you hear what resonates in her soul....what is desired..and, conversely, what is not asked of us?
May we be very aware that we are partnering...JUNIOR partnering with the Holy Spirit as we step onto the hallowed ground of the life of another.
