I have read in 2 different locations today about how God refines us. Through trials and hardships, God is refining us to be so much more! He refines us to be compassionate, sincere, lovable, and a better person than before. So if you are in a troubled time, let God refine you and become so much more for Him!
The book I am reading gives you a picture of a lioness. Just when looking at her paw with the nails not in attack mode you see the comforting soft paw that loves on her babies. When defending her children, self, and area that paw changes into something powerful. It gives a glimpse on how we should be. We are the loving mom, wife, daughter, and sister. And when faced with a challenge we should be strong and ready to take on whatever we need to take on to keep our world safe.
Psalm 144: 12 calls us daughters to be like palace corner stones or pillars, which mean strength and support, a leader. Do you consider yourself strength? Support? A leader those around you? Are you ready to run the race God has set before you?
Are you like a lioness that is aware of her surroundings, caring to those around her and ready to pounce on danger? Are you fearless? Do you start your day saying you will be attentive and productive or are you distracted, busy, and disconnected to your surroundings?
