It said that I am a woman, an image bearer of God, the Crown of Creation! I was chosen before time and space, and am wholly and dearly loved. It said that I am sought after, pursued, romanced, the passionate desire of Jesus!! It told me that I was made uniquely feminine, for His purposes, to invite others to know Him, just by being this 'female' that He made.
Note: Now don't get me wrong, I've always believed this about YOU! I know how He feels about you! I just couldn't get that He felt that way about me too!
The book challenged me to find that female within me! I certainly don't feel very feminine. Oh! But I want to!! I want to discover that 'love affair' with the Lord. (you know, the one I didn't get in a husband - refer to yesterday's post!)
Through the process of reading and praying, asking God to show me that woman He loves, to prove to me that I have something beautiful to offer.. He began showing me. And my heart has changed, just a hint of transition on the outside, maybe not even observable - but certainly, most definitely there on the inside. I feel different. The world appears more colorful. It is as if spring is coming and something is about to bloom - ME!
