The Heart of a Woman

I attended a woman’s event last night.

Snacks

Coffee

Cute shoes

What else is there?

Oh I forgot…..women.

We sang some really good songs and listened to a message. I sat beside some incredible women friends.

There was note taking because the speaker was THAT good .

It was a good night and sometimes I need a little while to wrap my brain around the real reason. Why does there need to be an event that is titled “the heart of a woman?” Why do we need a special evening?

Women are caregivers. Women are nurturers. Women are worriers and warriors. Some are employees and some are mothers. Many are wives. We are daughters, aunts and cousins. Women are incredible humans.

Tonight I watched as women raised their hands in praise. They laughed and for just a few moments took care of the heart our speaker spoke of. Most of the time women are not necessarily thinking of their heart but thinking of the hearts of others.

Last night, these ladies took the time to take care of their hearts, even for just a little while.

As the music played and we sang, I closed my eyes and just listened. I listened to the hundreds of women proclaiming in song

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am
I am who You say I am

I am not just a wife or a momma. Even though it’s my favorite job. I am the daughter of the King. I am who He says I am. I am not the other women who are so easy to compare myself with.

I can know without a shadow of a doubt that even when I struggle or question myself, that His promises are true. I am the chosen one, right?

That even on the hard days I am loved beyond measure. He is for me but against me. I am who He says I am.

I was sad today. Woman are emotional creatures and I shed a few tears. I’m ok with that. Women have larger than normal tear ducts…….I made that up but it should sounded good.

I am grateful to walk beside women who have beautiful hearts. You know who you are.
