"Super Woman"

The other day I told my husband that I was feeling sluggish and needed an “oil change”. Sometimes you can burn the candle at both ends, run here and there, start early and go until late, stay on the go, attend one meeting after another, do everything that others expect of you and just run out of “fuel”. That’s how I felt last week.

I bring this up because most of us seem to have the mentality that we should be “super-mom” or “wonder woman”. Society tries to tell us that this is who we are. Remember the song, “I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget you’re a man, because I’m a woman.”? Even when I look at the Proverbs 31 women, I feel I fall so short. Am I by myself? I am not talking defeat- I know I am victorious in Christ- I am just saying that I am not and can not always be and do everything everybody expects of and from me. And that being the case, I don’t need to try to conform to that or let the demands of others cause me to miss my true purpose and be the person God intends for me to be. I just need to make sure that my life is pleasing to the Lord and that I am in the center of His will for me.

So, it’s all right if I can’t leap tall buildings at a single bound; if I am not faster than a speeding locomotive; if I can’t be in more than one place at a time. I may not be super woman, but I am who He wants me to be and that is “super” enough.

Girl, you hit the nail on the head, in this post. We alway feel like, or I do, I need to do what everyone wants or expects me to do, even when I feel like I can't put 1 foot in front of the other.
Like right now I'm so tired, need to be up early to go with your Mom shopping, but I'm setting up making cinnamon rolls cause Charles want them for Breakfast. I've got to learn to say NO.
Love your blog.
