These words apply equally to both men and women

Is it true that

women tend to spend more time analyzing what we are not or what we don’t have than recognizing who we were created to be. Satan’s victory with Eve started way before she ate that fruit.

We focus on the areas of our “garden” (our domain or our realm) that seem just out of our reach or control.

We take the seed of discontentment offered by the evil one and inform our souls of our dissatisfaction, unhappiness, or displeasure.

Just like Eve we have a choice.

We can choose to believe what God’s Word says about who we are and who we are created to be or we can entertain the lies planted by the enemy of our souls and cultivated by the culture we live in.

It brings me great joy to think of the detailed design and intricate effort that God put forth when making me. I’m so glad that I don’t have to aspire to be anyone else other than that woman God wants me to be.

You don’t have to seek anyone else’s approval for the life God has given you to live. We don’t have to apologize for the strength, fortitude, courage, talent, beauty, or intellect with which our Creator has given to us.

We all are “ God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

The words above are written by Chrystal Hurst. They apply equally to men.
