Sisters, let’s be intentional about giving all of ourselves-the beautiful and the messy parts-to the Lord. This can be a challenging task. Women are taught to be presentable at all times. Women are taught that no one will want them if they are too much: too vulnerable, too emotional, too needy. Now here comes the One who says He loves all of us-our endless tears, the snort that comes with a hearty laugh, and the frustrations that so easily beset us. That can be hard to believe but it is absolutely the truth:
The Lord loves all of you-the parts you were told were unlovable, the Lord can handle it. The “hot mess” that you frequently call yourself is considered the apple of His eye. So if the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings is so in love with you, why do you hold back parts of yourself from Him? Declare today that it shall be no more!
Let us pray with you: Lord, may the beautiful woman of God whom encounters this post declare today that she will surrender all of herself to you. You are the Creator of her very life. You are the author and finisher of her faith. May she reject the lies of the enemy and humbly bow before you, her King, who loves every part of her messy, beautiful, simple, and complex life. In Christ name, Amen.
Peace and Blessings
