As I continue my quest to SEE God I’m stopping to explore His purpose for marriage. I know it seems obvious to most people. You see, I realize that just because something is familiar doesn’t mean that I have an understanding.
When I determined that I wanted to understand God’s design, His purpose, see married persons through His lens, I knew it wouldn’t be reading how-to books. Organic learning takes time, extra attention, and much listening. It’s so real! I never forget the things He teaches me this way. He such a patient professor.
I’m only beginning to see. I could be on this journey for a long time. Like rings in a tree there is always another layer to tell a story – a tale to reflect the bigness of the Maker.
So I’ll share some random highlights of what He emerged in me this week.
From 1 Peter Chapter 3
- Women don’t give way to fear (Yikes! I fight fear frequently)
- Hair styles, jewelry, and fine clothes can be a distraction (True…)
- Hope makes women beautiful (Hope makes anyone/any creature beautiful!)
I don’t want to miss out on living my purpose. Being a woman may not be my eternal identity but for the walking it out in this life, the right now, I want to embrace Gods design to the fullest. It just might be that as I grow through this lifetime of feminine perspective my soul will grow and mature into the fullness of Wholeness.
Isn’t is such a curious thing? God creating male and female yet He possesses the characteristics of both! Oh I want to poke my head above the soil to see His Glorious Light! Life Emerging.
Dig deep and watch as He emerges in you, too!
Rich blessings to you,
