How God Really Feels About Women on International Women’s Day

Hey Girl?

You are brave, you are growing the right kind of strong.

Your voice, your heart, is always wanted and never, ever forget: you always belong.

Promise you’ll never forget this either?

The night you were born a girl, the stars stilled and sang, because you were a girl and you filled the earth with more of His otherworld glory.

God made sure every girl born knew she was never less than: He gave her double X chromosomes.

When God decided to pull on skin and make His visitation into the world, He didn’t show up in some backroom of an inner boy’s club.

This is what God chose as best, this is where He first became one of us:

God chose to make His entry point into the world through the holy space of a woman, to enfold Himself inside of a woman, to drink of a woman, be held and nourished and cared for by a woman.

That’s the jolting truth of how God loves women with His honor.

Christ never beat down a woman with harsh words or lusting eyes or sneering innuendos, but He stepped in and stopped a broken woman from the abuse of angry men.

Christ came to the defence of a hurting woman and the Son of Man stood between her ache and her attackers and He lifted the weight of shame from her and cupped her heart with hope and wrote a new future into the dust and dirt of everything and he saved. her. life.

That’s how God loves women with His defence.

Christ didn’t degrade women in His talk, but He made women heroes in His stories.

He invited a woman with a coin and broom to reveal the truth about the Kingdom of God.

He honored an intentional woman imploring an unjust judge, and said she was about unveiling more of the character of God.

He elevated a lonely, unmarried woman who dropped her meager resources into the temple treasury as the rebuke of God for all the rich and religious.

That’s how God loves women with His words.

Christ never demonized women but He accepted the presence of a woman reviled by the self-righteous.

He sat with the scandalous woman the righteous regarded as damaged goods.

He welcomed the rejected and the immodest woman, though there were times that he lost the respect of the religious.

That’s how God loves women with His grace.

Christ stepped out of that black tomb, He still didn’t choose to first manifest Himself to prestigious officials, religious leaders, the Twelve, but instead He revealed Himself first to the women.

He entrusted the veracity of His resurrection to the testimony of the women.

He offered the privilege of proclaiming Christ as the risen Savior to the women, though no court at the time would accept their testimony.

That’s how God loves women with His esteem.

Hey Girl?

God first revealed Himself to a woman as the God Who Sees — because God needed every woman to know that she is seen, she is known, she is beloved.

God made the answer to the world’s very first problem, the one of aloneness — to be a woman.

God created women to be part of the answer to the problems in the world.

Being a woman isn’t a problem — being a women is being part of the answer to the world’s problems.

And every woman is here not to one-up one another — but to help one another up.

Hear me, Girl: The world has enough women who know how to do their hair. It needs more women who know how to do hard and holy things.

And— hey, Girl? Just promise — that you’ll never, ever forget:

God made sure every girl born knew she was never less than: He gave her double X chromosomes. 

God made sure every woman has a double x-factor.
