You’re gonna hear me ROAR!
I see so many messages around equating femininity with boldness. Which is not a bad thing at all. We want to be strong. We want to be equals. I should be confident. I should be loud. We want our feelings and voices heard. We have been silent for long enough! But what happens when we don’t feel like roaring?
Some days I do feel bold. I feel strong. I feel like I can take on the world and I am victorious! Other days I want to curl up. I want to hide. I have no voice. I feel more like crying then I do roaring.
Psalm 56:8 says that God puts our tears in a bottle. Our every tear is precious to Him. So why do I feel guilty when I cry? Why do I feel like I am weak, not as bold, and I should shrink back?
I am going to choose today (and hopefully everyday) that my tears, my crying, my aching heart will come out as a roar. Even when my confidence is down and I am feeling unsure – you will still hear me roar. I AM VICTORIOUS. I am more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37) and I will live that way. My tears will be my roar. In my weakness He is strong (2 Corinthians 12:9).
In my bold roaring and in my weak crying – you will hear me!
