Secure Women

What makes a woman secure?  
A woman can be secure in a worldly way or in a Godly way, or both.  But without Godly security, she will never be truly secure.  Security in a worldly way will always be incomplete.  She will always be chasing something.  Because even if she is complete according to the world's standards, deep down she will feel there is an emptiness within her.

Seeking to fulfill security by worldly standards, a woman will go around and around in frustration.  It is like swimming in a whirlpool.  She will get out of it, not by reaching a goal, but by reaching out to God through Christ Jesus.  She will discover that being a Godly woman and working toward becoming Christlike will bring true security.

She will find that her accomplishments are now meaningful because they are aligned with Christian values.  She will find that anger is easily managed because she is truly secure and therefore is not shaken like when she stood on the shifting sands of worldly securities.  She will find it easier to love completely and without abandon because she has the power of the Holy Spirit inside of her.  There is no effort to love when powered in that way.

What makes a woman secure?  Wealth, the love of a man, children, position?  No, none of these things will establish real security.  When she seeks the Lord through Christ, she will find it...only then.

This is the topic of a chapter in "How to be Free from Bitterness" published by Community Christian Ministries.  You can get a copy this pamphlet at ccmbooks.org
