This is one of my absolute favorite parts of the book thus far. Goals and lists are my greatest loves and these two paragraphs are filled to the brim with both. The practicality of the words below make me feel empowered to live my life free of insecurity, just as the Lord intended.
Secure women know their strengths and aren't afraid to own them. They also know their weaknesses and aren't scared by them. Secure women can easily admit when they are wrong but don't beat themselves up about it. Secure women take risks. Secure women fail but try again. Secure women can be vulnerable with their friends. Secure women don't have to know all the answers. Secure women can say no. Secure women believe that love multiplies and that they can give lavish love and affection away because there will always be an abundance for them.
Truly secure women find their worth and their strength in Christ. They give up on the empty promise of worldly security, and in doing so, they find the deep love of true life that Jesus offers. Secure women are beautiful, powerful women because of their deep ability to love - not because they do it perfectly, but because they are loved by a perfect God, who will, "equip you with all you need for doing His will" (Hebrews 13:21).
