The Wonder of Being a Woman

18797631-seamless-row-of-hand-drawn-women-silhouettes-holding-hands-as-symbol-of-unity-and-strengthI am so thankful to be living in a time in which honor and value are being restored to women.  An amazing poem was read in a sermon I just finished listening to from Bethel Church.  The poem was written by Christiana Moss and was read by Kathy Vallotton on Mother’s Day, 2013.  It is stirring and empowering.  It is for all women and it is my desire that we come to understand and embrace the important and strategic role we have in the Kingdom of God.

 

I Am A Woman

“My willingness to carry life is a revenge, the antidote, the great rebuttal for every murder, every abortion, and every genocide.

“I sustain humanity.  Deep inside of me life grows.  I am death’s opposition.

“I have pushed back the hand of darkness today.  I have caused there to be a weakening tremor among the ranks of those set on earth’s destruction.  Today, a vibration that calls angels to attention echoed throughout time.  Our laughter threatened hell today.

“I dined with the greats of God’s army: I made their meals, I tied their shoes.  Today, I walked with greatness, and when they were tired, I carried them.  I have poured myself out for the cause today.

“It’s finally quiet, but life stirs inside of me.  Gaining strength the pulse of life sends a constant reminder to both good and evil that I have yielded myself to heaven, and now carry its dream.  No angel has ever had such a privilege, nor any man.  I am humbled by the honor.  I am great with destiny.

“I birthed the freedom fighters in the Great War.  I am the leader of the underground resistance.  I smile at the disguise of my troops.  Surrounded by a host of warriors, destiny swirling, invisible, yet tangible, and the anointing to alter history.  Our footsteps make our land for conquest.  We move undetected throughout the common places.

“Today I was a barrier between evil and innocence.  I was the gatekeeper watching over the hope of mankind, and no intruder trespassed.  There is not an hour of the day or night when I turn from my post.

“The fierceness of my love is unmatched on the earth.  And because I smile instead of frown, the world will know the power of grace.

“Hope has feet.  It will run to the corners of the earth because I stood up against destruction.

“I am a woman.  I am a mother.  I am the keeper and the sustainer of life here on earth.  Heaven stands in honor of my mission.  No one else can carry my call.  I am the daughter of Eve, and Eve has been redeemed.

“I am the opposition of death.  I am a woman.”

I am extremely grateful for people like Jonathan Welton, Danny Silk, Kris Vallotton, and many more who are actively teaching and empowering women to understand and embrace our God given mandate.  Man AND woman were created in the image of God therefore both are necessary to completely unveil the fullness of His nature to mankind.  The earth is eagerly awaiting the manifestation of the sons (and daughters) of God.  We as women need to wake up to the vital part we play in the world understanding the fullness of the Father heart of God.

For further reading on this topic I suggest the following books:

Powerful and Free by Danny Silk

Normal Christianity by Jonathan Welton. (Chapter 7 entitled, ‘Women Rising’)

As a woman you are powerful and you are beautiful.  You are dearly loved and needed.   Be encouraged.  Life exists on the earth because of you!
