Ladies...WHY do we put ourselves down so much?
Why are we our own worst critics?
Why do we compare ourselves to every other woman on the face of this earth?
Why I ask...???? WHY?????????
Enough I say! It is time to draw a line in the sand and embrace who God created us to be! He never intended for each of us to be the same! He gave each of us different gifts, different talents, different callings, on purpose for a purpose!
No longer put "just" in front of what you do. What I mean by that, is stop saying, "I'm JUST a stay-at-home mom", "I'm JUST retired", "I'm JUST not as good as she is at cooking meals", "I'm JUST not as gifted or as talented as she is" "I'm JUST"...fill in the blank.
Take that out of your vocabulary and instead, start saying "I am!"
I am a daughter of the King!
I am a mom who loves my children!
I am talented and gifted!
I am FULL of purpose!
I am stronger than I think I am!
I am not perfect but I am surrounded by grace!
I am fearfully and wonderfully made!
I am....fill in the blank!
Change your dialogue with yourself and change what you are letting in your mind about yourself.
Allow God's Word to penetrate your heart and your mind and dwell on His Word.
Find those friends that will speak truth in love to you and encourage you. We need to warrior up together ladies...fight together for ONE purpose instead of battling against each other!
I believe the talents and the gifts God put inside each of us are better when we put our forces together! Imagine the army we could be if we stopped pointing our swords at each other and started putting our swords together to fight the real enemy!
We talked about this on our PurposeFULL Woman Podcast. The link is below and I truly hope you take about 30 minutes today to listen. We talk about this struggle we as women have with this issue and HOW to overcome it!
Let's come together ladies and become the women God created us to be!
