It’s easy to let comparisons make us doubt that we’re God-approved. I was especially unsure in college, a season I wrote about in today’s Proverbs 31 Ministries devotion, “What Kind of Woman Does God Approve Of?”
Monday was International Women’s Day, and I want to pause to celebrate YOU here no matter what “kind” of woman you are– no matter your giftings, profession, ethnicity, or maternal status. You are loved by God, and I’m so glad we’re in community together!
As I talked about in the devotion, God has filled His Word, the Bible, with all kinds of fascinating women. Abigail has become one of my favorites this year, so much so that I wrote a whole message about her.
As soon as I get my vaccine, I’m hitting the road again to speak, and I’d love to come share about Abigail at your church. Click here to find out more about my speaking!
Here’s the description of my Abigail message if you’d like to pass it on to your women’s ministry leader:
BECOMING A WOMAN WITH A TENDER HEART AND STRONG VOICE
How do godly women speak up in godly ways? In today’s divided world, the noisy extremes make it appealing to seek comfort in silence. But God’s given each of us a place of influence where our voice is crucial. It might be your home, your neighborhood, your workplace, or even your wider community. We can combine a beautifully tender heart with a strong voice to make a difference. Using the story of Abigail from I Samuel 25, Amy will show you how to:
- Listen for details that others might miss so that you’re a solution-creator instead of a trouble-maker.
- Engage your feelings in a way that leads to discernment, not disaster.
- Do good that brings peace to the problems of your corner of the world.
- Speak into the heat of conflict with confidence and wisdom, bringing resolution and restoration.
