Failure at something is the greatest fear of a woman. It is however the simplest to conquer. The love that radiates in us as women is very great and when utilized appropriately, it can take us anywhere. We can do anything as we are powerful and the strength and discipline that we were created with should be enough for us to conquer the world without a hint of fear. Failure and fear are demons that walk hand in hand to plague people but we say enough is enough. Read the passage indicated above and say it repeatedly to yourself in the moment of doubt of your abilities.
Many women start off on a journey of self discovery without a plan and a strategy. They get to the middle of the road and get stuck due to lack of direction. This can be caused by a lot of things even by an unsure husband of a faithless marriage to one. A future endeavor without a strong plan will only result to being a waste of time. It is true that sometimes we are so eager to start that we forget to make necessary preparations for the unexpected.
But when we find ourselves in this predicament, we need not despair or lose focus. Remember the word of God that says in Proverbs 3 verse five, “trust in the Lord with all your heart; don’t depend on your understanding but seek his will in all that you do and he will then show you which path to take.”
He knows all the right direction when you are at a crossroad. The journey might have been tiring but it is never too late to call on him to give you a new direction. You might have followed your husband to this crossroad or even you might loose him due to your lagging behind but he is just a prayer away. He is sure to lead you towards that destination of grace and abundant marital success. We all need a helping hand and he is just but a few sentences of prayer away from hearing you. When the demon called lack of direction calls on you, push it off and hold out your hand for God to take you there.
For whatever reason, many had led themselves to a path where they are lost as to where they are going or coming from. They have dug a hole and walked right into it due to neglect and ignorance. Reverend Deji Dania said in his book; The Rib Factor, that women are the remedy to any malady as caused by her. We might have lost it but when we seek counsel, we are sure to find it. The answer is often right there in front of us, already made by us even.
Grief had taken a heavy toll on many and had made them to lose their faith in all that is good and their spiritual wellbeing. This is not a way to go please. The holy book says that even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we should FEAR NO EVIL. The Almighty is with us and will be there to comfort us. The comfort that is gotten from his words and his grace is not the kind that leaves us when time lapses. It is everlasting for as long as we continue to do his will.
Grief is not something that anyone would pray for but when it happens, learn to lean heavily towards him for comfort. Thinking, causing yourself pain, laying blame on anyone will not give you what you need. Run to him, seek his face, open your heart to him and let him carry your burden. It is your weapon to fight this demon.
The demons in our life that continually find its ways unto our paths will not do us any harm. We are equipped with a powerful tool called prayer in the word of God and common sense. Be not be afraid of that foul-looking, fire-spitting dragon, your Joseph (or Josephine as this case is) will defeat it in an instant.
