what I learned today
As I have said numerous times before - I always learn more than the girls do.
The author said this, "Insecurity keeps a woman from experiencing consistent joy even within a relationship because a man cannot provide security, only God can."
I certainly looked for security from my marriage in the sense of a life long relationship, I hope I never expected my husband to be responsible for my personal security. As I continue to mature in Christ it has given me the confidence I need to fulfill my calling, even when I am not sure I can do something. Because the opposite of trying is always worse than failing.
I feel sorry for some of my brothers in Christ. Some of the insecure woman, even Christian woman I know that are constantly needy, are such a drain on the relationship.
Guys have told me over the years there is nothing more attractive than a woman who is confident, not bossy, confident. Big difference.
It was a good reminder today as I read that the ONLY consistent joy we will ever experience here on earth, is through an obedient relationship with God. Not man, not career, not children or wealth - all of these things pass away...
Security and confidence are attractive to all those around me, so even when I feel very uncertain I need to obediently step out and try. And realize that even failure teaches.
I am curious if any of you struggle with insecurity? Care to share?
