The Woman I Want to Be

00:00

Description

God doesn’t want us to give in to our raw emotions. He wants us to be refined into the hope-filled women we're meant to be.

I’ve spent my life trying to keep my raw emotions in check.

You know what I mean by raw emotions, right? Those irrational feelings we hide from most of the world but spew on those we love the most.

I love Jesus, and I love my family…passionately!  But sometimes I get thrown for a loop emotionally, and it’s the people I love most that pay the price.

Learning to navigate those raw emotions is kind of like peeling back the layers of an onion. If I find something ugly, I have to ask myself a crucial question. Am I going to let this define me or refine me? If this raw emotion defines me, I’ll feel defeated. If I let it refine me, I’ll be motivated to make positive changes.

God doesn’t want me to give into my raw emotions. He wants me to be refined into the hope-filled women I’m meant to be.
