Would you believe that the year is already two-thousand and nineteen?
The world is full of war, disease, and poverty; Being middle class in America is overrated; and Our political climate is on the rocks. God is still good; Chic-fil-A is the number one restaurant; and Women are running the world!
Okay, maybe not the entire world (but we are working on it). Women are leading the economy and excelling in education. Women are holding down corporate jobs and businesses greater than any other decade in history. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Women own close to 10 million businesses, accounting for $1.4 trillion in receipts.
Women are rock stars! We are taking care of our homes with love and attention. Plus, in addition to all of the other stuff, we mother children, attend their sporting events, encourage them in school, take care of them when they are sick, buy the things they need, and train them up in the way they should go.
Though not all women are doing all of the things I’ve listed, I still believe that there are superpowers in each of us. Powers that give us the ability to do super things.
In the book Faith to the Seventh Power, I talk about some of these powers. I share the powers that have worked in my life and helped me to do what I would consider some pretty super things. If you have any of these powers I encourage you to build upon them and then use them to be a champion for others. My powers are faith, character, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, kindness, and love.
Power, by definition, is ability, capacity, capability, and potential. We may not always feel like we are living up to our power as women in the workforce or even at home, but I believe that we all have the power to make a difference in the world around us. One woman may not be able to take over the entire world, but as women, we can continue to thrive and show up for this journey we call life.
When we show up for our journey and live in our power, we become a champion for those who only know defeat, and a light for those who know darkness.
Hey Friend. You are a champion! Don’t ever deny your greatness or let anyone denounce your power.
