God never said the right thing would be the easy thing.
Yet He asks us to do it anyway, He promises to redeem us, and He loves us all the while.
Joy lingers in her path because she leads a life of kindness, intelligence, and confidence. She is genuine, and she is approachable. She extends herself to others and lives in a manner that invites you to know her. She uses her influence to encourage and inspire. Her life is a banner of integrity. Her voice is one that calls for equality and justice because the more she discovers His heart, the more she resembles it.
True femininity is never accidentally embodied. It’s always a choice, and it’s a worthy one because it’s contagious. It’s not about trying harder, but about accepting what has already been spoken over you—peace instead of chaos, love instead of hate, service instead of vanity. True femininity will manifest when we stop trying to prove ourselves and instead embrace the truth that has redeemed and repurposed our lives. Once we are satisfied in the source of beauty, there will be an evident joyous freedom in the way we hold ourselves & treat others. When your life is punctuated by the truth of Christ, others prosper—for your beauty is not your own, but a living picture of His nature and an invitation to know the fullness of His freedom.
