SHE is beautifully knit together
Welcome to your weekend Soul Sista devotional: The Proverbs 31 Series through the lens of the Passion translation.
Recap for women who are just joining us, why are we doing this journey together?
We're going DEEPER to wrestle with what it means to 'do' womanhood well in today's world-gone-crazy! To choose to say yes, I AM who God says I AM. To believe that we are here to do sometimes hard & holy things. To be loved by God, and to live a life that tells others what its like to be loved by Him. To stand in the gap for others. And to live - truly LIVE - each and every day while keeping eternity in mind.
Soul scripture of the week: Proverbs 31:22 (The Passion Translation)
''Her clothing is beautifully knit together - a purple of exquisite linen."
What are you choosing to clothe yourself in today? This translation speaks to unity of the church, but also to us as women - knit together beautifully when our Spirits are set to dancing with the Holy Spirit seeding true beauty on the inside.
THIS passage touches on our favourite 'She Seeks' topic of identity. Because we believe that we were made to know who and who's we are.
Created IN love, to live a live FOR and OF love. Created with eternity knitted on the inside. Made to be fully known in the love of a beautiful Creator God who purposed YOU with breath + divine intention since the beginning of time.
Our western, modern culture places so much value on our outer appearance, whereas God looks at and works on the heart. As women we have all likely bought into the lie's of this world based in self-image, but God's word roots us back into Truth in an instant.
As a community we believe we are made to live in the truth of our original design. Of women who know they were created in love, and live BOLDLY and CONFIDENTLY from the place of that love. We believe that freedom doesn't come from a mirror. That it comes from seeing yourself - for the first time, or all over again - through the eyes of our Heavenly Father. Because the Truth is you are a Daughter of the Living God 💝
When we have a truly personal encounter with God, EVERYTHING changes. Where were you when this happened? Perhaps it involved hearing your name, spoken in love, as it was truly intended for the very first time.
As the words of Ephesians 3 declare, God's heart for you is: I want you woven into a tapestry of LOVE. All the deepest mysteries are found here and no where else.
Dear Jesus, we come before you as women seeking to know your intention for us in a deeper way. We reject the world's claim of self-image, and seek more of you to reveal to us who you created us to be. Wrap us in your love this week, speak fresh revelation of identity and belonging into our hearts - and a deeper assurance of who we are in you. Holy Spirit, be our clothing this week, so that wherever we walk will be ground that brings the aroma of Christ. And so that we know that we don't even need to walk alone.
Would love to hear your story as we grow together community, Say hello here xx
