Today I got to hear from one of my pastor and leader about great women who has walked down history and made a mark, the likes of Joan of Arc, Evita Peron, Florence Nightingale, Rosa Parks and who among you would ever thought that there is an actual existing only woman Pharaoh is history and her name is Hatshepsut, yup go and Google her up. Their stories are to say the least tales of very passionate and compassionate women, doing whatever it takes to fight for what they strongly believed in.
I personally am very privilege to be working in an environment where my bosses believes in women living out their God given calling to the outmost, no caps, no lids, no holding back. Leaders who believes in empowering the women to aspire for greatness. Indeed i’m a blessed person.
So here I am cheering all the Godly woman out there, its time to step out of the chambers of insecurity and fear and start saying “Here am I Lord, use me.” Flaws and colourful past, pimples and baby fats, discrimination and accusations, rejection and broken hearts, “Here I am Lord, a broken vessel ready to be moulded to be use for your glory”
Its time to OBEY GOD
It’s time to walk COURAGEOUSLY
Its time to step out in FAITH
It’s time to BREAK OUT from the world’s mold and LIVE OUT your God-given purpose. Like what the great women of the Bible did:
Deborah- a wife and prophetess turned Judge (in the time Israel has no king and everyone did what was right in their eyes)
Jael-the tenth dweller turned heroine for killing the king of Sisera;
Esther- the beauty queen turned rescuer of the Israelites
Abigail-the wife of a fool, whose wisdom rescued her family
Rahab-the prostitute who feared the Lord and got saved
Mary-the virgin willing to carry a Holy Spirit conceived baby (in the time women were stoned even for just being not a virgin)
Ruth-the seductress turned noble woman
and the list goes on…
Dear young women
I dare you to break out and live out a life of purity amidst the pressure of every one you come in contact with daily. Be humble and cry out for wisdom. Clothe yourself daily with the fear of the Lord.
– think twice before you enter into any relationship knowing for a fact that when you “fall in love” your heads does not function as it ought to be (if you don’t believe me, ask your friends and they will certainly agree)
– don’t trust yourself and run around parading in sleepover with co-ed friends as if you are beyond temptations, spare yourself the pain of being humbled
– when every body is making Facebook their diary, have the wisdom to keep things in your heart or within the circle of matured Christian friends, not everybody needs to know the things you and God has discussed in the secret places
I dare you to break out and live out an abundant life free from the pressure of being in a relationship, being a fiancee, a wife, a mother, having more children, being a grandmother, a mother-in-law and the list goes on. Break free from the voices of this world that keeps on measuring your worth, wether they are your family and well-meaning friends. Instead clothe yourself with righteousness and the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Be in pursuit of God because that road always satisfies and overflows, you can never go wrong in loving Him and obeying Him for endless days and years.
Lastly break out and live out a life that influences many, one that does not just breaks out of the mold but sets a culture of Godliness that will not only change this generation but will leave out a legacy.
