Ladies... it is time for a talk. Fellas, you can stick around too! If you have important ladies in your life, then you can benefit from this as well.
As a woman, you can be sure that I will find myself in an image rut or crisis every once in a while. I will plough through life until one day I will stop to realize, "Who is that person staring back at me in the mirror?"
"This color so does not work for me anymore!"
"Oh my goodness... when did I gain these extra pounds?!"
I know, us ladies can get quite touchy about this. However, it is not just a personal problem when you are in ministry. As a Christian woman and more so as a woman in ministry, you are the reflection of Christ - in the way you look, the way you carry yourself and the example that you set.
When I was in the world, it was easy. I followed the trends, I looked at the magazines and I molded myself to the image of the world.
However, when I came to the Lord, things got a bit blurred. Am I allowed to be sexy? Is it okay to show a feminine figure? Is it wrong to want to stand-out? Must I dress much older than my age now?
Man, it was a mystery to me. I felt I had to put all the fun things about being a woman on the altar, in order to please God.
What I found out though, is that being a woman in ministry does not mean hiding your femininity - quite the opposite... it means amplifying it! It means standing in the fullness of it and being an example for the church and the world to follow.
In ministry, you are not just a good preach, you are an image that the church will follow after. So are people looking at you and thinking, "When was the last time she brushed her hair?"
Because they should be thinking, "There is something alluring and special about her. I think I want me some of that."
You are a fire-cracker in the spirit and a prayer warrior that can get the job done, but now... it's time to have some fun! You are also ALL woman! So don't hide it, but stand in it.
