Have you ever been innocently having a conversation with someone and it turns into a weird dialog? That’s what we’re gonna talk about today and more.
Dare to not compare.
We as women of God have to be able to celebrate other ladies accomplishments genuinely.
The promotions, babies, or advancements/accomplishments. Submission to their husband, and everything that glorifies God from a place of contentment.
Ladies, have you seen how
conversations seem to go awry in seconds? Let me give you an example.
We just finished our 8th year of homeschool. When you talk to some ladies about it goes a little like this.
Girl, I can’t wait to get done.
We have one week left and it quickly turns into reasons from the other person of why they aren’t gonna be done yet or that’s good but not everyone can do that. Weird shift right.
Let’s celebrate one another genuinely.
Another instance that strikes a different cord is when life throws weird hard hurdles into the equation.
For instance I was talking to a friend about how hard it can be to celebrate others blessings of children while wanting to have a child or wanting to continue your family after miscarriages. I shared about two separate times where I had just privately experienced a miscarriage and seconds later got a baby shower invitation in the mail or the time I miscarried and on the way out of the room got a birth announcement from my dear friend. I had emotions yes, but I had to pray to ask God for right perspective. I prayed for me to be genuinely happy for them . Truly asking God to bless them and provide them with everything they needed.
We need to reclaim the Biblical womanhood standards once and for all.
Coming alongside each other. Encouraging other women to encourage other women.
We all need to be able to have freeing well listened to unguarded conversations without fearing the competitive wall.
The world encourages competition. Christ does not say compare ourselves with one another because comparision kills. The world says from the time you put your feet on the floor there is a war waged with any woman you encounter that day. You gotta look perfect , act “perfect”, be perfect by the wordly standards.
Christ tells us to handle our own homes, love our own husbands and children. Christ says don’t gossip and He discourages being a busy body.
Let’s go to scriptures for encouragement on how to govern our focus.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Colossians 3:1-10 ESV
Christ makes us content.
We all need each other. We can help rebuild from the ruins that Feminism’s sadistic trapping caused allowing distorted principles to seep into every facet of life.
We can have the togetherness that the Bible describes. We can have ladies to turn to in times of need. To help watch each others backs. To be praying for one another, and towing the line of true Biblical Womanhood. Christian women imitating Christ not the world.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25 ESV
Love the Lord, all you his saints! The Lord preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride. Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord! Psalm 31:23-24 ESV
