She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future. Proverbs 31:25
Wow! What a verse that describes how we are to view women. Not as weak creatures with little or nothing to offer the world. No, God tells us that women are equal to men in every way. Women possess great power and dignity. We are full of grace, love, kindness, compassion and empathy. Men often lack many of these attributes. Men and women are equal, but not the same. It’s okay to say that because God has a purpose for both men and women, He did not create us to be the same. Equal, yes. The same? No…
God is within her, she will not fall. Psalm 46:5
When we take God into our lives, He is with us and will not let us fall. Does that mean we will live a perfect life, without hardship or pain? No, it simply means He is there for us, to catch us, to understand and help us along the way. We must choose our path of righteousness. We much look to Him for answers, clarity and mercy. Starting each day in His Word will help us with that. How does that look? Well, for me, personally, I start each day with yoga, to clear my mind and help me focus. I then do Bible readings and devotions. I wrap it up with prayer time. My mornings are filled with Christian music, no tv, no news, no social media. Just me and God. This takes time, discipline, the ability to get up each day earlier than everyone else.
These next several days I will be sharing some verses and insights to those verses to empower us all as women and get us through the day in His Word.
