I thought this quote taken from Proverbs 31 Ministries was most fitting today. In this devotion, Lynn Cowell says “As we lean into God, asking for strength through the peace or through the pain, He will make us into the women He’s intended for us to become: Women becoming God’s definition of beautiful.”
This really touched me. I don’t often refer to myself as “beautiful” but the mere thought of becoming God’s definition of beautiful excites me. Although the days we’ve treaded may not have always been the best of days, they were still ordained by God. And as we’ve now entered into a New Year you will have to learn how to embrace transition (I know I will) in order to accept His transformation for your life. I’m no longer afraid to allow the pressure of transition to transform my life. I want His fruit to grow more and more in me, each and every day.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23 (AMP)
I hope this devotion has touched your hearts today and that you will become the woman God has intended for you to be!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
