Power of a Woman
Being a woman in today's society is challenging. Women are facing the dilemma of identity or as I like to call it, an identity crisis. They are struggling to discover who they are. Unfortunately many women identify themselves based on the roles they function in. This is normal because that is how most were taught. Additionally, situations such as divorce, single parenthood, or tragedy have forced women to function in dual roles causing them to struggle with the delicate balance of attending to the basic needs of family and career, competing in the job market with men and women, being a single parent, battling health concerns, and other obstacles that prevent women from getting to know who they are and what their purpose is.
Knowing who you are as a woman and what your purpose is is crucial to living a whole, peaceful and successful life. God created women and men in His image and therefore we have a God given identity and purpose. It is important to know who we are because this helps us better understand why we are here.
A woman is one of the most beautiful phenomena in the world; not to be compared with anything else.
We wonder why women are so mean, judgmental, hateful and disrespectful toward one another...the answer is simple. They don't know who they are. They are having an identity crisis and they are using someone else as their mirror. They see another woman who appears to be living the life that they desire and immediately behave as if their identity has been stolen. They become jealous of the other woman or women and begin to take their frustrations, anger, disappointment and other feelings that represent an identity crisis out on the other woman or women. Unfortunately the other woman or women take it personally which leads to a disconnect in the sisterhood. If women fail to get to know who they are, why they were created, and how they were created to function together then they tend to misuse and abuse one another.
Most creations and inventions come with an operator's manual. As women created in God's image we too have a manual that we can read for guidance called the Bible. We also have the opportunity to talk to our Creator through prayer.
If you truly want to get to know who you are and what you were created for then you must spend time with the One who created you. Not knowing who you are and what your purpose is can and will prevent you from walking and living in your full potential. You are a precious gift from God and the world needs you! I highly encourage you to go on a journey of self-discovery, it will change your life!
