“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man has to seek Him just to find her.”
A famous quote that I have grown to believe has challenged women to find themselves hidden in Christ. When we take away our titles that society has defined us to be; an entrepreneur, mother, wife, graduate student, we can start to view ourselves the way our Creator originally intended us to be. Today I challenge you to find yourself hidden in Him.
When I was younger, I remember standing in front of the bathroom mirror one day asking myself, “Who am I and why am I here?”. I repeated that question over and over and over again, not really knowing if, or even WHO for that matter, would answer me. It was then that I began to feel I had a deeper purpose in my life than just walking and breathing. What was keeping me here? Who AM I?
It wasn’t until I turned 28 that I discovered a purpose to life and was baptized with the Holy Spirit. I discovered that roles in society did not define me. It lacked the essence to unveil the depth of me. When those roles no longer exist, who am I then? If I am divorced, am I still a wife? God forbid my child leaves this world, am I then still considered a mother, or has my title now changed to being a woman whose child has passed? I began to realize that my identity was connected to what is internal and not external. That no matter what man said I was in this world, I developed an identity and was reaffirmed by what my heavenly Father has already called me to be:
Worthy God Fearing
Powerful The head and not the tail
A winner Worth more than rubies
Loving A Leader
I am all of these things because He has called me to be so. And so I challenge you to read the word of God and affirm yourself by them.
I am a place where God’s Spirit lives.
1 Corinthians 6:19
I am totally and completely forgiven.
1 John 1:9
I am created In God’s likeness.
