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
her 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, and 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
the woman that receives this will be touched
in some way.
May peace and love be upon you.
