There’s enough. Did you know there’s enough to go around? There’s enough space, there’s enough topics to cover, there’s enough room for blogs and articles on news feeds. There’s enough speaking podiums and passionate stances to be shared. There’s enough words for compliments. There’s just enough for all. We don’t have to compete for air time, Facebook reads, blog post views, who is the prettiest, who wore it best, who sung it better. I mean there’s just enough.
I have a group of girls. We champion for each other. We each have different God calls that focus on different areas of life and you know what we do, we hoist each other up each ladder rung. Sometimes one girl is shining in the light and sometimes none of us are. Sometimes one of us makes a HUGE break through and sometimes 2 of us do and 1 doesn’t. I mean who stinkin’ cares. The gospel is being shared, the love is being poured and Jesus wins.
Ladies let us stop. Can you just HALT this with me? The girl next to you who is shining in her role on this earth, can you champion for her please? Can you lift her up so high today? Cause you know what, she needs it because this world is harsh.
I am a boot girl. I loves me some cowboy boots. Not just any cowboy boots but Old Corral CowboyBoots (yes maybe I am a boot snob, I’m working on it). I love beautiful boots on my feet. I save and hoard gift cards and gift money to buy a pair of boots. I love my light brown lace style boots, it’s rare I see them on anyone else and I get compliments on them all the time. Love them. The other day I was at an event and someone else had the same boots on. So instead of being snotty about it, as if I wear them better, I walked over and told her she was rocking those boots. We laughed about being boot twins and it was so fun. Girls, ladies, women of the world we can celebrate each other today. If a girl is rocking an outfit I could never wear, I want to be the first to go to her and say dang girl you look gorgeous today! If I see someone shying back and looking less confident I want to go and give her a compliment, tell her she’s looking lovely, tell her she has a great smile. Let us be only for each other all the time. There is no time to sit back and be harsh. There is no room for pushing and shoving and holding down each other. Let us be FIERCELY for each other!
Believe me, I’ve been mean, caddy, unkind, snobby and self-centered (I can maybe still be all those things in my head). This is a newer me. A me that has seen and felt the support of what real women do. Real women champion each other. Real women lift up not pull down. Let us all be REAL women. The kind of women that support each other in all the things, that will sit down so someone else can shine. I am learning to shine the light outwardly instead of on myself. There is no perfection here, but I will seek this with my days. I will be FIERCELY for you!
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you.
You are God’s girls, he looks on you with abundant love each day, let us do the same for others. Treat yourself as if you BEAUTIFULLY, FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE in his image, because that is truth.
