Who is a woman? A woman is you and I, beautiful inside and out; physically weak, yet so strong. You are a doctor, counsellor, teacher, driver, cook, coach, and many more; always looking out for others, yet neglecting your own wellbeing.
You have fought many battles, bear many scars, yet still standing tall; broken into pieces, yet not destroyed.
You are full of love, faith, strength and wisdom; a woman of influence, the fulfilment of many destinies – your husband, children and generations unborn – rests upon you. Use your strength and influence wisely!
You are special, woman; fearfully and wonderfully made; love yourself and know your worth!
Don’t give up on yourself, stay strong and remain positive. Hold your head up high, you are royalty.
Yes, your troubles and afflictions may be many, but the victory is already won; believe this and walk in the victory of the Spirit.
I celebrate you woman, for you are more than a conqueror.
