revolution – a sudden, complete, or marked change
YOU ARE LOVED, VALUED AND BELIEVED IN. What if every single woman heard those words from her neighborhood to the furthest corners of the world? What if every woman understood their immense worth and value? What if from the playground to play groups; to high schools; colleges and board meetings; women were building each other up and instead of competing, they were speaking words of life into each other?
What if we stood up when we heard another woman being mistreated or bullied? What if we didn’t just cheer just for the boys, but the girls too? What if we took a stand for our sisters who have no voice and we became their voice? What if, as a company of women, we became a united force on mission to discover our value, and then we were mobilized to crown others with it?
Let’s GO to the highways and byways to tell and invite as many women as we can to be a part of a VALUE revolution. Let’s leave gossip and competition behind us. Let’s be builders of every woman we meet, speaking value and worth into her very soul. Think about Mary and Elizabeth, the mother of Jesus and John the Baptist. They spent time with each other and at the end of their visit – Mary, who started out shaky left Elizabeths house singing. And when they first greeted each other, Elizabeth said the baby leapt in her womb.
The truth that we have locked inside our hearts has to come out; the truth that we are ROYAL daughters; the truth that we have a Heavenly Father who is madly in love with us and who has a generous inheritance for us that will never end. This truth has to be told from one heart to the next. Psalm 45 says, “ the royal daughter is glorious within.”
Let’s celebrate what HE made glorious.
Great is HIS love toward us and great is the One who has the power to bring change and to lift ceilings and limitations off of any situation or circumstance. We owe it to this next generation to flip the switch and push forth, in the spirit, a value revolution. It starts on our knees. It starts by following after the example of Jesus who throughout the Bible loved, lifted and affirmed all women.
Think about the woman caught in adultery. The crowd was ready to stone her. I can feel the tension of the angry crowd judging her with their eyes and their actions. But Jesus in that moment says, “Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” Her accusers left and Jesus told her that He did not condemn her.
So often we cast stones with words that tear down each other. But as we follow in the example of Jesus, the ultimate value revolutionist, we should have the posture of kneeling down in the dirt just like Jesus and realizing we are all in this together. Surrendered, in need of a savior, and leaned into each other. We are on the same team. United, we can break down strongholds and weights that have tried to separate us as daughters.
The time is now, girls. The world is waiting. Your city is waiting for a tsunami, a tidal wave and to hear the ripple effect of the sound wave of value that originated from heaven to sweep over every single woman. This sound wave is coming to arrest her heart to experience the greatest lover of her soul. Then, because of that marked transformation and realization, she awakens to her freedom, her passion, and purpose. In-turn, she will ignite the hearts of everyone in her world. And so the revolution begins. All we need is you, darling, to say “Yes” to the call! The invitation is this simple. Now, all you have to do is decide to GO!
Luke 14:23 Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.’ The table has been set by our King. Let’s go into all the world and reach as many women as we can with unbelievable love and value that comes from HIM.
