Perhaps like Laura, you wonder what I mean when I write about “becoming an intentional woman.” Although it's a process and not always easy, it is possible. I can't change anyone else, but I can make positive changes in my own attitudes and behavior. An intentional woman with a heart for God:
- Works at becoming proactive, instead of just letting life happen to her—merely reacting to life’s unexpected circumstances.
- Accepts what she cannot change about her season and circumstances, making courageous and deliberate decisions about the things she can change.
- Is not self-absorbed to the point of leaving others out of her life; nor does she live her life through or for others. The attitudes and pressures of other people do not unduly influence her.
- Is directed, not driven and focused, not floundering.
- Realizes she won't be perfectly problem-free, yet she has a desire to honor God with what she has been given.
What's one word that reminds you of an "becoming an intentional woman"?
