There comes a time in every woman's life when
she has to take a close look at herself. Not at her circumstance, not at
what she did, not how unfair life is, or not at whom made you do it. She has
to just look at herself in all her glory and imperfection. Have you ever
admired a woman who has been through changes in her life?
Or have you made up in your mind that she is just messed up.
Before you make this mistake, take a closer look.
A woman who has endured the most unusual life is someone
of wisdom, someone who has been chosen by God to go through things that have made her stronger.
Think of all the great women in the Bible: Mary
Magdalene, Ruth and Naomi, the woman with an issue of blood flow,
Esther, to name a few. Mary was a prostitute, a very uneasy woman. But by
the time Jesus was done with her, she was His closest follower.
Esther was unfortunate in marrying an abusive man,
but by the time God was
done with her, she had married one of the wealthiest men in the land. Women are so quick to beat the next one down instead of trying to hold her up. Before you wonder,
"What's up with her?" ask yourself, "What's up with me?"
That woman could be my mother, sister, aunt, in-law, stepmother, niece, grandmother, great-grandmother, neighbor, friend, or co-worker, etc.
That woman could be me.
Women are the carriers of life, not the channels of death. Let's build and encourage each other, as did Ruth and Naomi. Pass this to all the women in your life. Encourage and Love, Forgive and Forget, and trust that the woman that receives this will be touched in some way.
May peace and love be upon you.
