Focus on Him, Not Your Circumstance.

Journal Entry #21 My fear...

Image
Abba, I have seen abuse and just thinking about it scares me. I don't want to ever be in an abusive relationship. I honestly want to be blessed with a man of God, You have for me that will not hit me. I pray to be with someone who loves me as Christ loves the church...

I fear to be in an abusive relationship. I have noticed that whenever I hear someone raise their voice at me, my heart starts beating fast and I get nervous. I find myself hiding and running from confrontation. I wish I were never around abuse because it has shaped my view of men. As I continue to seek the Lord, he is changing my view of men. I have an understanding of how men and godly men should treat women. Some days are better than others, but I am trusting God with this fear.




What has happened in your past that has shaped your world view?

Journal Entry #20: What kind of woman will I be?

Image
Abba, I want to know what a woman of God is? I want to know what kind of woman I will be. I sometimes fear not much... I have a desire to be used by You. I want to be a woman of God that loves You and reverence Your name. I pray that You will grow me, teach me, purify me and guide me however You choose.                                                                                                               11/24/2010

I did not grow up in a Christian home. I do not grow up around godly women. I instead saw and knew what the world says a woman should be. I remember indirectly being told women are to be loud, put men down, and independent.

The woman I pray to be:

Speak wise and encouraging words

Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. Eph. 4:29 NLT
Let your conversation be gracious and attractiveso that you will have the right response for everyone. Col. 4:6 NLT
Trust in the Lord
