WELCOME TO THE FIRST EVER SISTATOWNE BLOG POST!
We are beyond excited! We decided what better way to start then to talk about the Key Verse of our little ministry.
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
Matthew 22:37 ESV
First off this is a command from scripture! Let that sink in. A COMMAND. It’s not an option. Whew. We know that we must not be alone. But often, either of us have not loved the Lord with ALL our heart, or ALL our mind, or ALL our soul. Thank the Lord we serve a good and gracious God! Because he constantly calls us back to repentance and Him.
Onto something a little less in your face and so deep. When Mya and I talked through the idea of Sistatowne and decided to venture out on this journey, we felt confident that God wanted us to show other gals how He is connected and present in all that we do! He has set us free and gives us freedoms and gifts to thoroughly enjoy! So we thought why not make it a three fold?! And that’s where Matthew 22:37 came in to confirm the call of encompassing all these areas of life and how they always point back to Jesus!
As we have said (and you can read above), we desire to see women connected through their hearts, souls and minds.
Somewhat weird wording but, let us explain.
We want to share the things we are freely able to love- what makes our hearts happy! Any good shows you’ve been watching? Hobbies? Likes/dislikes? Favorite food? Goals you are working to achieve? TELL US ALL THE THINGS.
It’s also our desire to hear how your soul is being fed, and how it needs to be nurtured (we are here for you!) and what we can pray for. This is a space where you can share the ways God is working/stretching/molding/ challenging you in different facets of your life!
But don’t let us deter you. We want to hear EVERYTHING.
Heck, tell us a funny story or a life hack- don’t feel like you can’t share something because it isn’t deep or spiritual; there is nothing too small or too big here! Although I am preaching to myself here, as much of the time I feel like God is only working in small ways in my life (maybe you feel that too) or we don’t see or feel how he could be doing something that has been a part of our story all along, yet in His eyes it is huge and a part of his plan. That’s pretty awesome!
And we can’t forget about the mind. Oh my, the mind of a woman (and I can say that because I am a woman; I understand!). This could definitely be a jumbled mess (amiright?), I mean us women are designed and wired very uniquely, and our mind is constantly moving. We have a lot going on up in there! I know that at times I word vomit, and sometimes it makes sense and sometimes it doesn’t!
So basically who knows what will come of this blog!
All in all though, as we share personally and practically we hope you will enjoy and connect with us. We also hope it encourages you and constantly points you to the Creator. We’re all in this TOGETHER (cue High School Musical- #throwback).
And above all else, remember this:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
