To that strong lady who is pretending to be okay but deep inside is broken, this is for you.
You appear to be so strong. Everyone admires your strength and wisdom. You do things sacrificially for your family. But no one notices what’s really deep inside your heart. You are fighting battles no one knows. And now you’re tired, broken, and you just want to run away.
God Sees You
I just want you to know that God sees you. God sees your struggle. It’s okay to be vulnerable at times. It’s okay to appear weak in front of people at times. You are loved more than you know. Please don’t listen to the lies that keep telling you that people will leave you when they see through you. It’s okay to cry in front of people. It’s okay that you get wounded at times because no one is perfect. Only God is. God knows you’d stumble sometime along the way, but He promises that His grace is sufficient for you.
It is written in 2 Corinthians 12:10, “But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me.”
It’s Okay To Feel Weak
Strong lady, it’s okay to feel weak sometimes. Because in your weakness, God’s power will rest all the more in your heart and soul. So, this time, learn to rest in God. Allow yourself to heal, allow yourself to cry. You deserve a love who will embrace you beyond your strength and what you can do. You are loved beyond measure.
It’s gonna be okay, strong lady. God’s got this, and He is with you. Just rest in His love because He loves you for who you are.
“The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” -Jeremiah 31:3
