WEDNESDAY WISDOM FOR WOMEN
Here are five wisdom tips for women that I have gleaned from life and that I thought I’d share today.
“Be wary of comparing yourself with other women. There will always be someone more attractive, competent, fluent, poised, articulate, intelligent, qualified, fit, influential, funny, talented, anointed, popular, shapely or financially enabled than you. That’s okay. The blend of attributes God gave you is intricate to His divine purpose for you so instead of falling into the comparison trap, appreciate, embrace and maximize what you have and ask God to help you to shine in your own unique way to His honor and glory.”
“Be warm, loving, and open, share your heart, develop relationships, bond with others, but remember that God reserves the seat of the throne of your heart for Him and Him alone. Never allow anyone else to sit in that powerful place of internal dominance. Not your father, mother, brother, sister, husband, children, significant other, best friend, pastor, boss or whomever. That highly influential place within rightfully belongs to God. Retain Him as your first love and none other.”
“Be careful who you allow to have access to your personal life, to visit your inner sanctum, your private place of hopes, dreams, deepest thoughts, problems and fears. People can have great influence on your life either for better or for worse so it is incumbent upon you to with the help of the Holy Spirit qualify the soil of a person’s heart before giving them access to your inner life.”
“Understand and recognize that sometimes you just can’t fix it; that sometimes, no matter what you do, you just can’t make it right. In times like these, honor your limits, find peace in the assurance that you’ve done your best, leave the matter in the hands of the Lord and live.”
“Be careful not to allow the pressure of expectations, the lack of understanding, the looks of disapproval, the negative vibes, the critical spirit, the absence of support, the wary facial expressions, the scorn, the gossip, or the threats, from those around you and even closest to you, cause you to divert from or abandon the path, the process and ultimately, the fulfillment of what you know to be God’s will for your life.”
Hope you found these wisdom tips helpful in some way.
