Women, daughters, sisters, mothers, grandmothers- LOVE YOURSELF!
God made you specifically with intent on purpose, for such a time as this. Your life is not a mistake; your life is not overlooked. Your life has purpose! Purpose to fulfill the desires of your heart. The desires that God placed deliberately-with intent. Don’t ignore the aches, the yearnings of your dreams. Feed them with the power of the loving God.
It hurts God when He sees His exquisite masterpieces filled with shame and feelings of inadequacy. He did not create you to simply abandon you. He created you, daughter of Christ to know Him, to really know who He is and to share that knowing with others. This purpose we’re each created to step into looks different for everyone. We’re perfectly unique in the things that set us apart from others.
Love your mind
Love your heart
Love your hands
Love your feet
Love your mouth
The love that comes from our Father flows through you and emanates. It reaches beyond your body and is tangible to those around you. Don’t stifle it. Keep your love HEAVY. There’s no room for light love. Love with purpose with intent, the same way He loves you.
In the book of Esther we are shown and example of what it means to be set apart from others visibly. Esther’s love for God emanated from her, everyone could tell she different. It says in Esther 2:15,
“And Esther won the favor of everyone who saw her.”
Everyone including King Xerxes.
“Now the king loved Esther more than all the women, and she won grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”
The favor Esther received wasn’t simply because she was beautiful on the outside. People around her, including her heavenly Father saw her beauty emanating from the inside out. Her heart was filled with love, grace, faith and courage. Esther’s purpose was far greater than she ever expected…but she didn’t back down in fear. When her life and that of the Jewish people’s was threatened, she used what God had put inside of her as a weapon against the enemy.
Use your love as a weapon against the enemy daughters, for perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18)
So daughters, walk boldly, love profusely and trust in Him always. For He is with you, walking amidst your purpose.
