One of my favorite poems is “Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou. It’s about a woman’s beauty that is within her. Her confidence, her belief in herself. It’s about acceptance and appreciation of who she is. This type of woman is more concerned with becoming the woman God made her to be, and not who the world tells her she should be. She is at peace with who she is. It took me some time to become this woman.  

Comparing yourself to others and not loving yourself can prevent you from being all that you can be, and it prevents you from fulfilling God’s purpose for your life. You can’t fulfill your purpose if you’re trying to live out someone else’s. Jealousy has no place in a woman’s heart who knows who she is. God made enough skyways so that we all can fly.  

How can we love God and not love ourselves who He created? God does not make mistakes! Neither does He lie. Scripture says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. It’s not vanity when we love ourselves, it’s insanity when we don’t. When you don’t know your worth, you open yourself up for all kinds of abuse, depression and pain. It is important that we not only know who we are but also whose we are. I understand that sometimes because of circumstances, situations, or other reasons, some women may not know their worth. The enemy has tried on purpose to keep them from knowing who they are. The devil is a liar. Seek God so your mind can be renewed, and you can become the woman He made you to be.  

If you feel like every other woman is living the life and have all the things you have been praying for, be happy for them. If God blessed them, He will bless you in your appointed time. And while you are waiting love yourself, be comfortable in who you are and seek God. The Holy Spirit will empower and enable you to become the woman God calls you to be. Love and Blessings…

{There isn’t a woman in the Bible
used by God who had it easy.

Ruth didn’t have it easy.
Esther didn’t have it easy.
Sarah didn’t have it easy.
Hannah didn’t have it easy.
Mary didn’t have it easy.
The woman with the issue of blood
didn’t have it easy.
God’s daughters don’t have it easy.
They have it anointed.
They have it appointed.
They have it highly favored.
They have victory!
Walk in your anointing even when it doesn’t come easy!}
