Recently, I posted on my social media pages a few thoughts about how often women are asked, "What do you do for a job?"
As I've reflected further on this issue, I am encouraged that as women, we have been given the ability by God to encourage, love, and nurture others, even under immense pressure and responsibility.
In a world that so often defines us by our accomplishments, looks, dress code, and what we own, we can forget that God created us. Scripture tells us, "For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10
What am I? When considering this question - the first part of the answer is that I am a child of God, saved and forgiven, a believer in Jesus Christ.
Secondly, my job description now encompasses financial director, executive housekeeper, event planner and coordinator, diary manager, and secretarial administrator.
Reading the stories of Esther and Ruth reminds us that these women did not have easy choices to make. They endured and participated in making a difference for their community, and family. Their stories are written down for us to be encouraged.
My quote for 2023 is "To be successful at anything, you must simply be what most people aren't: Consistent" Anon
So, our question is not What Are You? Not what is your job?
Instead, ask yourself - Who Am I? Now that's an interesting question to ponder!
