I am excited for this fall season and for me it feels like a fresh start to a new chapter in my life. I have been really asking God, “How are you going to use me in this next season?” He hasn’t given me the answers right away, but has given me open doors of where He wants me to walk through and then show me the next step. In this season, God is teaching me to not be a “Wonder Woman” to the world but to Him. The movie, “Wonder Woman,” came out recently and has got me thinking of how we are God’s “Wonder Women” and what does that look like?
God views us women as strong warriors and not just sidekicks or afterthoughts. We are created in His image and so important to Him. Wonder Woman is the first superhero to be fully equipped in combat skill, yet purely motivated by love and not vengeance. This goes to describing the Proverbs 31 woman where she is fully equipped to do the work God has set out for her and her household, but does it in love. Her words have power and God gives her wisdom as Proverbs 31:26-27 states, “When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule when she gives instructions. She carefully watches all that goes on in her household and does not have to bear the consequences of laziness.” The Proverbs 31 woman is a noble woman and through God gets things done for His glory.
As I was reflecting on my life, I realized there are things that I needed to say “no” to in this season in order to be used by God more. God has shown me what things in my life are worth fighting for and He’s giving me a passion about certain ministries to keep pursuing. I don’t have it all figured out and don’t have to be everything to everyone. God is guiding me to follow His voice and not the voice of the world and how it defines “Wonder Woman.” Will you take this journey with me and allow God to define you in this season? God wired you to be you so don’t try to copy or be like someone else because who you are is God’s best, and you’re not just a lady to Him, but His “Wonder Woman.”
