I Love Being a Woman!

I love being a woman —
Powerful and free!
Full of passion, grace, hope —
How Yahweh created me!

I love being a woman —
Created to soar!
With a bold, passionate voice —
Created to ROAR!

I love being a woman —
Full of creativity!
Contemplative intercessor —
Created to be ME!

I wrote this poem as I was thinking back over my life’s journey. I was not always confident in my identity. If only I was more outgoing…more bubbly…more talkative…more…well, the list was endless! BUT as I healed some past wounds and learned that I was created for a reason and a purpose, I was able to learn to love myself. I can now embrace who I am with my little quarks and introverted personality! May you grow to love yourself and embrace the person you were created to be. You are not a mistake. You were created for a reason and a purpose! Your personality, gender, talents, and special unique traits were knit together by God for a reason! Creator God thought about you, planned you, and created you for a special reason and purpose! Embrace who you are!

For you created my inmost being;

    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

    your works are wonderful,

    I know that full well.

 My frame was not hidden from you

    when I was made in the secret place,

    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

 Your eyes saw my unformed body;

    all the days ordained for me were written in your book

    before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV)
