The Women Inside of Us
I’m every woman!
It’s all in me
I can read your thoughts right now
Every one from A to Z( whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa)
( The words of the Chaka Khan)
I don’t want to be every woman! I want to relate to every woman! When I chose the women of Her Alabaster, I examined their story. How did I relate to them, and how would others?
Truth is The Samaritan woman was me when I was lost and looking in the world for superficial, temporary things for just a moment of gratification. God came in and gave me living water that was able to quench the thirst I had. What are you thirsting for that only God can fill?
Ruth was a reflection of the friend in me. Some of the characteristics that my friends describe me by are dependable, loyal, trustworthy, and honest ( probably to a fault), but I know we all need a covenant friend to share in our highs and lows.
You may not know this about me, but if there is a need or something I can do to make my community better, I’m all in. Being a community builder is about being at the foundation of our community, helping our neighbors, family, and friends. It’s about recognizing a need in our community and like Dorcus seeing how I can help.
Then there is Sarah; she was the one I told God about when my womb seemed like it would not hold the fruit placed Inside of it. I knew that If God could do it for her, He could do it for me. I knew that God was faithful to his word. How many other women needed to know that God was faithful and never to give up on their dream
Esther, a Queen and a woman of influence who used her position to improve the lives around her, which made me realize that we all influence someone. I had to ask myself, How was I using my influence? Her Alabaster was birthed as my gift to share with other women.
Esther, Ruth, Sarah, The Samaritan Woman, and Dorcus they are the women of Her Alabaster, we all have a little of them in us.
