Be the kind of woman who is fully persuaded that God has the power to do what He has promised. Remember this when you’re tempted to settle for less, because you’ve talked yourself into thinking that there’s no hope for the desires of your heart.
When God doesn’t give us what we want, we tend to fret and doubt His abilities. Perhaps what we want isn’t shallow or materialistic at all, yet, for some reason, it feels like God is constantly telling you “No.” As a result, you might stop praying. You might stop reading His word. You might stop surrounding yourself with people who encourage you to be strong in your faith. You might feel like you can never truly thrive and be the woman He has called you to be.
If you’re not careful, this can cause you to settle. You can start to become okay with just going to church and occasionally praying when things get really bad. You can start to settle in relationships and give up on toward being the best that you can be.
However, no matter how bad it gets, hold on to your convictions. There is freedom in being fully persuaded that God will do exactly as He has promised. Don’t settle for anything less than being fully convinced and confident in this.
