“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness” (nkjv)
- The words that come from my mouth should be full of wisdom, and not careless. Ontop of what I say, the words should be saturated with kindness. It’s SO easy to be careless with what we say. I want to speak with power and taken seriously, not written off because my words hold no authority or influence because of carelessness.
“Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised” (nkjv)
- I want to be a woman who fears the Lord and is respectected as the woman of God that I know I am called to be.
The older I get the more aware I become of who I am becoming and who I am suppose to be. Who am I suppose to be? That is the question. The answer? A woman of God. In the past few days, God has been speaking to me about a few things in my life that aren’t reflecting Him in a positive way. We all have those areas that we “let go” or we will “fix later”. When “life happens” we don’t always turn to the one thing that will keep us going and won’t lead us astray. I personally can say that when I am stressed or there are things going on in my life, my first reaction is to take control. What I should do is to surrender. To trust that God has known every detail of what will happen in my life from when I was still in my mothers womb. He knows that everything will be ok. He knows when I will mess up and when I will turn my back on Him. The thing is though, is that He still is so passionately in love with me, and every flaw that I have. He never gives up on me or writes me off because I’m unlovable or too messed up to be fixed.
Nobody is perfect, and there will always be things in my life that I will need work on. Right now though, I know what I want. I want to be a woman of God. I want to be saturated in His love at all times, to be the Proverbs 31 woman. I want people to stare at me not because of how I look, but because they see God through me. I want to love without reserve, to love those who are marked unlovable and to spread the light to the darkest places.
Everyday is a journey and I will stumble and fall and sometimes get off path, but overall, I will hold His hand and let Him lead me to places I never thought I would go.
I am passionately surrendering.
What are some of the things that you need to surrender, or to trust God with? What are the areas that you have “let go” or need some attending to? Lastly, when is the last time you passionately surrendered everything that you have.
