I just began reading the book Lioness Arising Wake Up and Change Your World by Lisa Bevere. I am just getting to the 2nd chapter and already realizing this will be an easy book to read. It centers around Numbers 23:19-24. "These people rise up like a lioness, like a majestic lion rousing itself."
"If ever there comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known. ~ Matthew Arnold"
The 2nd chapter begins with this quote. It really hits home when I read it. Us as women hear the saying "She is a force to be reckoned with." But if we stop to think, if all of us women would come together for the good, we really could change our world. We let ourselves believe lies that we aren’t good enough, we aren’t pretty enough, we aren’t strong enough, or we aren’t capable to do certain tasks, when really we are good enough!
We need to strive to be the loyal, trustworthy, caring people we are meant to be. Try to think of others and lend a helping hand. It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. We need to step back as a woman and see how much just our attitude and actions are the main things that effect our husband, children, and the people around us. So my goal for today & future is try to encourage those around me, try to be dependable to my word so people will know they can rely on me, speak only positive, and trust God through my weakness.
