“As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the Lord is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.” Psalms 18:30
Depending on someone else can be terrifying — especially for those of us that enjoy control, like myself. In my experience, I have noticed that women tend to have a more difficult time with this and go through life with the perception that they have to do it all and be it all. The media (social & traditional) coupled with our drive for perfection leave us striving to be the career woman, perfect wife and mother, and always available friend with a rock-hard body and spotless home.
Just thinking about it is exhausting.
Thankfully, there is freedom in:
- Realizing that you don’t have to be it all (it’s impossible, really)
- Putting your hope in the Lord and untangling yourself from the world’s expectations.
- Letting Him be your shield and finding refuge in His strength.
You are beautiful. You are enough. You have a purpose. Jesus loves you and so do we.
