Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God. Give her everything she deserves! Proverbs 31:30

Captivated



I have been reading the best book for the past few weeks and I just finished it today! It was "Captivating" by John and Stasi Eldridge. This book has opened my eyes to so many things. It talks about who we are in Christ as women. It talks about how we should understand that God gave us beauty so that we could use it for Him. I am not talking about just the physical beauty here..God gave each one of us beautiful qualities and we need to walk in them. The authors of this book talk about how when we are little girls we have a desire to be beautiful and lovely and noticed but because of lives circumstances we push it aside and try to ignore it. Well, God gave us that desire for a purpose and it is time we release that inner little girl and walk in the desires that God has given us.
The book also talks about how God allows us to go through rough times and even time of spiritual warfare in order for us to grow and lean on him more and more but also so that we will learn how to take our place as a warrior princess and stand in our authority through the blood of Christ and fight for ourselves. That part of the book was a HUGE wake up call to me because I have walked under attack and have done NOTHING!!! Well not anymore...it's time to fight!!!! I would highly recommend this book to any girl I know....It is amazing!!!! But be prepared for God to shine a light it places you don't want to go! Your life is a fairy tale set in a battle ground. God is ready to dance with you all you have to do is let Him lead!
