My One Word: RELINQUISH
For so long I have put myself down, whether it is related to body image or simply my capabilities. I hear “that’s just part of being a woman,” but who does God say that I am? I am His child. I am redeemed. I am forgiven. I am made new. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I want to love and accept who God has made me to be. I want to relinquish my thoughts and ideas and embrace God’s Truth in all areas of my life.
“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you. For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139:7-16
