I am...

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 9:01 PM
I am wise. I have been given the gift of God’s wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30.) The answer to any question I could ever have is at my fingertips. Although I may not always be deemed wise by cultural standards, I have confidence and self-assurance as long as I make God and His Word the standard by which my choices are made.
I am invincible. If my body experiences pain, suffering, or even death, my spirit lives eternally (John 3:36.) God is for me and therefore there is no one who may come against me that has any power in stealing my eternal joy.
I did not pay the price. Jesus paid the price for me (Hebrews 10:10.) My ticket stub of life is marked “paid in full.” My responsibility is not to me, but to Him. I owe Him my life.
I am woman. I am God’s daughter. He has called me to be a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, spiritual advisor, and various other roles at different times in my life. Even though I still get bogged down by dirty diapers, runny noses, skinned knees, hungry stomachs, and needy hands, I know that it’s essential to stay focused on Jesus. As a woman, I have a high calling and know that as long as I know who I am in Christ and worshipfully fear the Lord, I will be fulfilled, content, and praised (Proverbs 31:30!)

Behind every successful man is an exhausted woman...that's what I feel like sometimes.

I am a multitasker, problem solver, clutter rearranger, nurse, ... knowing that I am working toward a higher calling that I must remind myself of occasionally. We are Christ to the world, but I am also that example on a daily basis with my children - including the apologies I must make to them from time to time. And in the midst of it all I must remain a wife and friend as well as carve out moments to reflect on me.

Available for God to use how he chooses. At least that is the goal. I know I don't get that right all the time but if I never make myself available(surrender to the Holy Spirit's leading) then am I truely his servant?
