Life as a woman is full of choices,more choices than we have ever been afforded. The hard part for us is to follow God’s plan for women despite guilt, culture, or expectations. We have the opportunity to choose who we marry or whether or not we get married. We choose whether or not to have children. We choose to be stay-at-home moms or to work outside the home. Breast or bottle. Home school, public school or private school. The choices honestly never seem to stop. The debates on these topics often become emotional, even heated.
I don’t claim to have the answers. But I know a God who does. I can’t tell you if you are on the right career path, but He can. I can’t tell if you should marry your boyfriend, but He can. I can’t answer your questions about the size of your family, but He can.
I have had a lot of personal correspondence the last week asking me intimate questions about all of these topics. I appreciate your trust in me and the openness that some of these issues of the heart have been brought up. That is honestly one of the biggest reason I wanted to open myself up in this blog thing. I love the open discourse with women seeking the same God.
For all the questions that have been spoken and the ones that have remained silent, I have one answer for all of them.
Walk in the Spirit. Ask God for His opinion. Then free yourself to just cut loose and follow Him.
The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life (John 6:63).
And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by God’s Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people (Rom. 2:29).
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God (Rom. 8:14).
We have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. (1 Cor 2:12-13).
Tomorrow I’m going to talk about the spiritual attack on women mentioned in 1 Tim. 5:14-15. ” So I advise these younger widows to marry again, have children, and take care of their own homes. Then the enemy will not be able to say anything against them. For I am afraid that some of them have already gone astray and now follow Satan.”
See you tomorrow!
