Getting caught up with a lot of things…
Serving complaints instead of love…
Overthinking circumstances instead of trusting God…
At some point, these things consume most women. The desire to land a stress-free high-paying job, to find the right one and to fulfill the dream of a nurturing a Christian family. are very much the vanity of single Christian women.
Flashback to the day we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, it should be rooted in our hearts that from that day on until forever we live for Christ. “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 “So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11
This reflection enabled me to look at the life of Jesus and his mission: “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28
He is the ultimate example and those that do not know him and imitate him fall into the trap of conceit.
It takes building a relationship with him daily to know him, it takes faithfulness and courage to follow him where he might take you and it takes killing one’s desires to experience pure joy in resting upon his perfect will for your life.
Every day will always be difficult, but believe when he says “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Women around the world shouldn’t be claiming the things the world labels them—“Seductress”, “temptation”, “whore”, “bitch”, “sex symbols”, “weak”, “vulnerable”, “play toy”, “bossy”, “judgmental”, “backbiter”, “hopeless romantic”, “naive”, “forever alone”, “gossiper”, “damsel in distress”, “haughty” and all others that our Holy Father didn’t design us to be.
You are far more precious to Him than you think and no amount of riches, no man, no loved one, nothing in this world will ever make God’s love for you any less than what He already does think of you.
Proverbs 31:30-31: “Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who greatly fears the Lord shall be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done, let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
The verses above do not serve as a weapon to attack the people who are mean to us, but they are our weapons for assurance, that when we go through very difficult situations and even people, we will remember our priceless worth in God’s eyes. I highlighted the last verse in red also because it only means that by doing as God had told us, we show that we truly love God.
