I know we've all heard "myths" about Christian women. Some of them are pretty funny, but sometimes hearing what people actually think about women of faith can be pretty hurtful sometimes, and honestly pretty rude!
I know "we're not supposed to" worry about what others say about us and to focus on who calls us, but we're human. We have feelings, and my feelings about these myths are pretty personal. I AM taking it personal because I'm tired of hearing people trying to downplay my Christian sisters and I like we aren't ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS!!!
So, let's get into it!
Today we’re debunking myths that you might have “heard” about being a woman of God. This shall be fun! 😌
🤦🏽♀️ Myth #1: Christian Women Are Boring - LIES! I honestly think we have MORE fun! (But that’s just me) 🙃 We go out, we put our makeup on, get our hair and nails done, and we slayyyyy! Just because we don’t get crazy drunk and act a fool doesn’t mean “we’re boring.” We’re just set apart, and choose to live differently. Period! But we, believe me, we know how to have a good time! Amen! 😌
🤦🏽♀️ Myth #2: All Christian Women Do Is Look For A Man- Another lie. We are more focused on our purpose, our career, our finances, and GOD than to be solely focused on “a man.” Yes, we date but we date WITH A PURPOSE and the end goal being marriage. And yes some of us desire to be married but we won’t settle for less, we want God’s best. No man is perfect, but God knows what He’s doing when it comes to our love story.
🤦🏽♀️ Myth #3: Christian Woman Are Undesirable - Well, if God didn’t want women and men to multiply then He wouldn’t have made women to be extremely beautiful, intelligent, and, dare I say, desirable right? Therefore, we are desirable because we are set apart from the rest. We don’t look like, act like, or strive to be like anyone else. We’re in our own lane. Being different is desirable and attractive. When you're unapologetic of who God has called you to be He will align you with someone who He created just for you, and will see you as more than desirable.
Those are my top three myths! Let me hear yours! What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever heard about “Christian Women?”
