Being a Christian woman sure is a tough job.
Being a woman in Christianity is not easy. The expectations for how I should live my life are higher. It's what is expected of me, it's what I'm supposed to do, and I have an obligation to live Christ like. Not just to set examples, but because that's what God wants. This is nothing new though. A lot has been asked of women in Christianity for centuries. All the way back to the earliest days of Christianity. Back then as a Christ follower, you were expected to rise up and lead. You were to behave to the highest of stand
ards. Part of being a faithful Christian woman was to serve examples of faith. By living, speaking, breathing, and serving the way Christ would. If this was not done to standard, the women and husbands were left feeling ashamed. These Biblical standards and expectations are still true today. We are women of Christ. We are to lead other women of faith. Whether they are younger or older. Baby Christian or seasoned Christian. We should Carry this passion with us in our everyday lives. We should not only serve, but we should go beyond serving, by supporting and complimenting the work of God and His disciples. Not by arguing over politics, or hating our neighbors, or setting fire to the world. We can't lead by telling other moms how bad they are. We are not showing Christ by openly showing our sins to the world. We need to get back to acting like ladies and encouraging each other. My anxiety is the devil. I don't always get it right. After all I am a sinner. I make mistakes.. I often fall to fear over faith. I am learning. I am growing. I am changing.. With the way 2020 is going, I have found that it is so much harder to be on top of my Christian game. There have been days I have failed in discipleship. There have been days I have succeeded. But with everything going on in the world right now, my anxiety gets the best of me sometimes. But I continue to try again. I continue to ask God to help me focus on bringing others to Him. I want to be a woman of virtue for Christ. Not for any glory that will come to me, but for God to use me as He sees fit. Because any work He gives me is an honor. Not a burden. It is overwhelming. I am hated for being Christian. I am judged because I am not Christian enough. I am trying to honor God, juggle motherhood, run a business, and keep my marriage afloat, all while trying to homeschool and keep others motivated. It's hard sometimes. So I will pray for His guidance and hands while I'm doing it.
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient, to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:5
