John 8:36 - So if the Son makes you free, you will be truly free.

Galatians 5:1 - We have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong. Do not change and go back into the slavery of the law.

This is my journey.

A Kind Of Woman...

Do you want a woman with a mind, with wisdom and the power to reason? Or do you want a woman who will simply agree with whatever you say?

Do you want a woman of strength, a powerful person? Or do you want a woman who will bend to your every whim, regardless of whether she feels it is wrong or not?

Do you want a woman who will challenge you, who will keep you accountable as you keep her? Or do you want a woman who will never call you out and will simply allow you to continue down a wrong path?

Do you want a woman who will come alongside you, work with you, and carry you when you need it? Or do you want a woman who needs you to always be her strength, because she has none herself?

Do you want a woman who reads and studies the Bible herself in order to be a workman who is not ashamed and rightly divides the Word of truth? Or do you want a woman who simply stands with your interpretation because she doesn't have any need or desire to study herself?

Do you want a woman who will fight for you, emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually? Or do you want a woman who cannot fight because she is leaning on you for all her strength?

Do you want a woman who cultivates her mind and intelligence? Or do you want a woman who has no desire for further education because she won't need it?

Do you want a woman who can engage you in deep and riveting debates and conversations? Or do you want a woman who cannot disagree or debate with you because she puts aside her own thoughts in order to agree with you in everything?

You said you wanted a woman like me. You said you loved my spirit, my strength, my power, my passion. And yet... you wanted to remove those same things from me in the name of 'biblical gender roles.' The woman you imagine you want to marry is not the same sort of woman you fell in love with, and in fact you will never meet such a woman; one who could magically meld together two completely opposing personalities.

What you loved about me is directly opposed to what you believe is the ideal 'biblical' woman. Don't you know that if I'd become that woman, I would have had to change all the reasons you were interested in me in the first place?

So, then, what kind of a woman do you really want?


  1. I love this, it doesn't make sense why people think this and what God showed both my husband and I is that in Genesis 3:16 women was cursed with having to obey her husband ( he will rule over you), well you cant be cursed with something that you did not have. so apparently she was Adam's equal partner . Genesis 1:26-28 When God blessed THEM and said to THEM be fruitful multiply and fill the earth, subdue it, have dominion over it he was talking to both male and female with the very same exact words , Selah and in Christ Jesus we are all free, Galatians 3:28 there is neither Jew nor Greek neither bond nor free neither male or female for you are all ONE in Christ Jesus

  2. And then it begs the question" what kind of woman doe GOD really want? Enough of the male entitlement and the way girls are socialised to always please men and to worry about what men think of them, and what men want. Men can take their "wants" and their entitlement and their privilege to the foot of the cross and lay them down, and take up their cross and follow Jesus down the road of sacrifice. And that will set women free to set their sights on Jesus and hear Him for themselves, and consider, who does JESUS say that I am? And what is HIS destiny for me, HIS will for my life? And that will be so very different to what the "Biblical Womanhood" Pharisees have planned for her.

    1. I agree 100%!!!! That should be our goal, to be the sort of men and women that God has designed us to be. That frightens many men, to see the empowered woman God is calling me to be.

      I have every confidence that as I continue in the path God is laying out for me, he will bring the right man at the right time. :)
