Often times I watch Dr 90210 and see the excruciating pains ladies go through to have breast implants and most of the reasons had to do with confidence. Ladies ain’t we just lucky, there’s almost a solution to basically all our physical deficiencies.
- You’ve got a small boob: implants or those amazing padded bras;
- Small behind and flabby stomach: body magic
- Spongy and short hair: Brazilian, Peruvian, Indian hair
- Spots on the face: foundation/powder
- Not too tall (trying to be modest, if you know what I mean): six inches shoe
- Stunted nails: artificial nails
- Lines in form of wrinkles on the face: Botox to the rescue.
Oh guys, I really feel for you, I share in your sympathy; how will you be able to know what’s for real these days. An advice from me; pray hard for the spirit of discernment.
Looking at the list above, you’ll realise they are all done to enhance our appearance; the effect is seen on the outside. Here’s the question, can we implant a new spirit, do a liposuction on our sins or botox our depression? You know, we hear people say If Eve hadn’t eaten that apple…? Can we just slow down a bit and listen, Eve made a mistake but she’s not the mistake. Ladies quit blaming yourself and move on. There are only two people mentioned in the entire Bible as helpers and they are The Holy Spirit and the Woman. Ladies we are helpers and should live with that consciousness.
A preacher once said and I quote her “The woman is the only source of life to the world, once she’s defiled, the entire world is defiled” WHAT!!! We haven’t been called for just makeup, hair and shoes rather to be flashlights for others to see. Anyone who finds us has definitely found a good thing and has obtained favour from the Lord. The world is favoured to have us or are we like constant rain drop, which is so irritating that people will rather live on the roof top than share a house with us.
Please, please and please again stop using the phrase “Think like a man”. We were not made to function that way. A man couldn’t resist the fruit we placed before him. You’ve got so much power; you need no book on Art of Seduction to use it, harness the power within you and it’ll amaze you to see the effect.
For the singles, you want a name change but you still have confidence issues. You’re comparing yourself to every lady out there; working so hard to fit into the image of the ladies on fashion magazines. Trying to be someone else is like forcing your feet into a shoe that isn’t your size, you may eventually succeed at it but it’ll hurt and leave you with blisters. Be yourself and work at becoming the woman God has created you to be. Improve yourself daily; don’t wait for a man to make you relevant to the world. It pains my heart to see a woman get lost once she’s married. Often times her name starts to disappear gradually while dating, for example I was in a gathering, someone was trying to explain some lady and the only way he could do that was Mr A’s girlfriend. Please don’t go telling me it’s rare. Another example “During her year as Secretary of State, Clinton emerged from her husband’s shadow, no longer Clinton No. 2 but Hilary Rodham Clinton”. Ladies set the ball rolling. Don’t just be another statistics in the world rather be a force to be reckoned with. It could be as little as mentoring a child or as big as setting up a school for free education. Whatever it is, make sure its adding value to people’s lives. In doing this you are living out a life that’s totally sold out to God and you become the answer to people’s prayers. Your heart is equally hidden in Christ, any man who desires you, will have to seek God knowing it’s in His presence.
To the married, I duff my heart for you but there’s more to be done. Your greatest aspiration is to be the woman described in Proverbs 31. Your husband will be praised at the gate because of you and your children will call you blessed. God has entrusted the world, (by that I mean your husband and kids) in your hands. Please don’t let them slip away. In a world where we want to be relevant, may you find the grace and wisdom to strike a balance.
We have been bought at a price by the Blood of Jesus, we are women of a different status and as Janette puts it “We are to be the exact of our Architect’s design”.
LOADS OF LOVE
