On the inside of the card was a verse I had actually posted on my facebook just recently...
As my spirit was energized by the text and Bible verse on this gorgeous card, I immediately thought of 4 or 5 friends I would love to send this card to. Women who need to know that yes, life is crazy and hard and complicated and even messed up at times, but they are making it happen day by day and doing just fine. Women who need to know they can be strong, have a courageous heart, hope in the Lord. Women who need to know I admire them for facing each morning with strength and courage when I know some of the challenges their days hold.
Then I thought of you all. And I thought that there are probably a few women I don't even know who are reading this right this minute and need to be reminded that they can keep putting one foot in front of the other and make it through what may be a very difficult season of their life. Women who need to be reminded that they are strong, brave, beautiful, and that in the Lord there is hope no matter what their circumstances may be.
So for the friends on my heart or the women I've never even met who need a word of encouragement today...
This card is for you.
Let your heart take courage.
Hope in the Lord.
Go do your thing.
We'll be watching in wonder.
