Good evening my readers 🙂
Now, as most of us know today is International Women’s Day, which means most all of my men followers probably are sick of reading such related posts and will be ignoring this one–understandably so lol.
But you wanna know something?
I’m sick of them too.
Not your regular feminist attitude, is it? While I have nothing against women’s rights (obviously, I rather enjoy my life as a young American woman), I have never considered myself to be a feminist. Thus, the endless articles and posts about women’s strength were honestly a little tiresome and overdone to me. (No offense to any of my beloved followers who posted on the subject!)
The theme behind modern strength is that women are their own superheroes and don’t need anyone else.
I get the idea, the sense of empowerment that comes from embracing womanhood. No, we as women do not any man to complete us.
That’s because we need the man.
Sure, we don’t have to swoon for every Prince Charming. But we also don’t need to slay our own dragons, we don’t need to do it all on our own, and we don’t need to shoot down every many in sight while we’re at it.
Yes, we as women are strong–only when our strength comes from the Lord. I recently came across five steps for being a woman of God, and I want to share them with you tonight, as steps for gaining biblical strength–an unfamiliar or even uncomfortable concept in our era.
The strongest woman you’ve ever met still has a breaking point. The God backing her up doesn’t.
A lot of our definitions of strength stem from outward appearance or climbing the ladder. Strength of faith and quiet self-confidence is far overlooked:
- Seek God first: Before the car, house, job, career, money, friends, family, or husband
- Speak faithfully: Let nothing pass between your lips that does not bring you or others closer to God
- Show true beauty: Any pop star can get on a stage in today’s hottest fashion; it’s the real woman that has none of that, but can still shine, that exemplifies beauty
- Stay humble: In a world that goes on and on about you, it takes real strength to step out of the spotlight and serve others
- Serve the Lord: When we aim to please God, things like being selfless towards our family or lending a hand to a stranger start to bubble out from us unconsciously
In case you’d like to check out the website where I found these 5 tips, here’s the link.
I by no means have these to the -t, or am anywhere close. But, if you put in the effort and prayer every day, you’ll see–like I have been–that each day brings you more wisdom and value to life than you could have possibly imagined.
So, the strength I’m talking about gaining with these five steps isn’t exactly what the majority of the world is thinking of today, I know.
I’d like to think that strength of character is of more value than any feministic strength our culture roots for anyway.
I hope you enjoyed my outlook on this subject dreamers! And I pray that these steps bring you closer to God, because there is no strength like knowing who’s there for you at your weakest. You are beautiful and you are loved ❤︎
