Last year, I wrote an open letter to my four boys on being men. This year, I write to a special young woman who’s been a divine interruption in the life of our family—especially those four boys I mentioned. You know who you are. And, while you are infinitely inimitable and beloved, there are other women who will understand or need to hear this unsolicited wisdom [my opinions are also free of charge] I’m going to speak into your life on International Women’s Day.
The Lord is speaking to you. He’s speaking to you about the state of your temple (your heart). He’s speaking to you about your belief v. your commitment. He’s speaking to you about not becoming calloused and hardened as you travel the road to Calvary…the narrow path where your will comes to die. Listen up.
We all have Pharaohs in our lives—maybe it’s not a person, but a situation or circumstance that we feel is insurmountable. Pharaohs serve a purpose, though, and we will begin to see that over the next several chapters. Though pain and hard times are difficult, they provide strength training for our lives so we can run a better race for Him.
