strong women

I love strong women. Not the kind who loves to “tell it like it is,” express every thought, judge the journey of others, or tell everyone they can how strong they are… but truly powerful women…

a strong woman loves in the face of hate, triumphs over the complacency of others, pushes through the exhaustion of service,
chooses faith over fear,
prays in light of insurmountable obstacles,
speaks kindly in moments of dissention,
values grace above volume,
extends forgiveness in spite of a broken heart,
elevates relationship over being right,
walks in love amongst the unlovely,
inspires those around her in her authenticity,
& pursues God with all her being, above all else.

I believe there is a reason that the most cherished book of Proverbs is closed with the decription of a powerful and godly woman – it is in these qualities through which women can change the world…

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30
