As women, we struggle to feel like we're good enough because we are bombarded daily with messages that whisper, "Who you are is not okay."
We live in a world that tells us we have to look a certain way, live a certain lifestyle, have husbands who fit a certain mold, and have children that excel in every area of their lives.
And rather than thrive in the life we have, we strive to create an existence that impresses others.
This impossible treadmill leaves us with deep discontentment and a joyless existence.
God doesn't apologize for how He created us. And while we're always being molded by our Creator, it's only to shape us for the calling on our life--not so we can fit into a world we were never meant to:
"Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete. Love others well, and don't hide behind a mask; love authentically" (Romans 12:2, 9).
What if we had the confidence to shed our fears and be who God created us to be--stumbles, fumbles, and all--relishing who we are rather than conforming to the world? Using an acrostic for the word AUTHENTIC, author Carey Scott unpacks 9 ways we can find the confidence we need to shine with fearless authenticity:
1. Accept Your Awesomeness
2. Unearth the Untruths
3. Try Loving Everyone
4. Hold on to Hope
5. Extend Forgiveness
6. Never Shrink Back
7. Trample the Negatives
8. Invest in Community
9. Camp in the Word of God
Let's link arms and commit to living authentic lives. . .together. Are you ready?
