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, 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.
We are so quick to beat the next woman down instead of trying to hold her up. Before you wonder, “What’s wrong with her?” ask yourself, “What’s wrong 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 everyone 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.
Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, but FAITH looks up
