I just spent enjoyed a weekend with my daughter and some of her friends from college. I was struck by how strong my Kristen is and what a confident woman she’s grown up to be. She is soooo much more sure of herself then I was at her age and it makes me both proud and happy.
As I always tell the little three-year-old girls in my class, “use your girl muscles,” but being “strong” has many facets. Let’s all strive to be both strong women and women of strength.
A Strong Woman vs. a Woman of Strength
A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape,
but a woman of strength also kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape.
A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything,
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fears.
A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her,
but a woman of strength also gives the best of herself to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and works hard at not repeating them,
but a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be God’s blessings and capitalizes on them.
A strong woman walks sure footedly,
but a woman of strength also knows God will catch her when she falls.
