11 May Reach Out by Rhiannon Appelgrijn
“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.”
– C.S. Lewis
I am so thankful for the wise women God has put in my life. There have been multiple times in my journey of being a wife and mother when I felt like I had no clue what I was doing and feared I was a complete failure. Had it not been for Godly women lifting me up through prayer, words of wisdom and affirmation, I would have never realized how normal my feelings of inadequacy were. I would have been isolated and lonely. These wise women helped me look at myself and circumstances through the eyes of God’s love and grace.
Where are you on your journey today? Are you the woman drowning in insecurity, or are you the voice of experience and arms of love to someone in need? I think we all fall into both categories depending on the day and circumstances!
Wherever you are today, be encouraged to reach out! If you’re struggling, reach out for help from a Godly woman. If you’re someone who is willing to pray and lift someone up, reach out and change a life today! Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to the women God has placed around you. We need each other!
