I came across this sometime back in a Christian Womanhood magazine and I immediately cut it out, tucking it away in a handy place. I thought the contrast very interesting and thought provoking. I pray that you will be encouraged and challenged as I was!
A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape....But a woman of strength kneels in prayer
to keep her soul in shape.
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything...But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.
A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her...But a woman of strength gives her best to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future...A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be God's blessings and capitalizes on them.
A strong woman walks surefootedly...But a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls.
A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face...But a woman of strength wears grace.
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey...But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
