These days, it seems that feminism is working at its hardest to be the center of politics. I love and admire girl power, but to me there is nothing more powerful than a woman who revolves her life around God.
My mother and father got me a book called Devotions for the God Girl: A 365 Day Journey by Hayley DiMarco as a small Valentine's Day (S/O to Mom and Dad for making me feel not so bad about myself for still being single!) I haven't read it all the way through and I probably won't because there's no chapters, it's all out of order. When it comes to biblical books, I usually just randomly choose a chapter or verse and see what message it brings to me. What I love about this specific book is that it has an index with specific topics (ex. love, fear, stress, etc.) which will take you to a page with a Bible verse and summary that goes along with that topic. In each summary, Hayley talks about that topic and God together to help the girl who is reading (like me!) learn more about her journey with God and discover the girl that He created her to be.
It's been a long journey for me to discover who I am meant to be, and it is still a journey in process. I give many thanks to Jesus for allowing me to learn more about myself and the things that I am most passionate about, which I refer to as blessings. He has helped me to be a good individual and to follow important rules, but he also has allowed me to be adventurous and explore my spunky side, which I believe many people who know me well enough can see. He has answered practically every one of my prayers and will continue to do so in the future. He especially comforts me in times when anxiety is stirring over me. Even though it's hard to tell that He is with me during difficult times, I know for a fact that He is because God is everywhere and everything. His schedule is never too busy for a prayer, no matter how big or small.
Devotions for the God Girl: A 365 Day Journey is definitely helping me discover the God girl that I am. It is the perfect book to turn to whenever I am feeling low or high. Sometimes I'll look for a specific relatable topic to find inspirational verses, but then there are times when I'll randomly flip through the pages and pick to read the one where my finger stops. I highly suggest this book to any girl who loves Jesus and wants to know more about the individual that they were created to be in His image, as well as to develop a closer relationship with Him.
