When I think about the many things that God has done for me in my life a smile comes over my face. To think that someone can care so much for you and stand by you, when no one else is around brings me joy. So why then do we not take the time to fully glorify God? I’m not talking about just reading the Bible or getting daily scriptures sent to your phone from various apps. I’m talking about really glorifying him and lifting up his name for all that he has done for us.
Women are supposed to be strong individuals who “hold” everything around them down. So much pressure is put on a woman because we constantly have to prove ourselves. It is easy then, for women to become so busy “holding” everything together that we then begin to fall apart ourselves. Taking time to reflect on ourselves will help reveal the various areas in our lives that keep us from fully glorifying God.
“He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” Psalm 107:9 NKJV
I don’t want to be “typical” and say that men have a hand in keeping some women from fully glorifying God but to some extent this is true. Some women desire male companionship in their lives to the point where nothing else matters. If you’re constantly in search of the perfect man or someone to just be with, when do you have time for God? Walking in faith and giving your all to God is what’s most important. When God feels that a woman is ready the right man will come along.
Believe it or not it’s simple things that we do every day that blocks us for truly appreciating God. A good example is contentment, which is defined as the quality or state of being contented. Some women find contentment in daily activities such a shopping, getting hair and nails done, or even eating at their favorite restaurant. It’s like a void or empty space in our lives that we feel the need to feel with all these things. What happens when the clothes go out of style or that favorite restaurant closes down? I believe women should start searching deeper within to discover our true selves and what makes us happy long term and not just “right now”.
“Be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Hebrews 13:5 KJV
That’s when I think about God! He’s in my life not just right now but forever. When you get that urge to just go shopping to feel a void, why not talk to God. He listens not only when we are in trouble but even when we simply need someone to talk to. Indulging in materialistic pleasure will not suffice for long.
