God made me female!!!

I just wanted to post a response that a friend had to my fear of feeling manly because of my high testosterone levels.

"My thought was that u r female bc God made u so. It is not your hormones that make u feminine, but it is fearing God, submitting to David, developing a gentle and quiet spirit... the world says hormones make u feminine we know differently..."

Wow, although I know this, it was so refreshing to hear. So, I ask you...

1. What lie are you believing that is causing you to view your "hormone" as your worth? / What is your "hormone?" (outward beauty, how many babies you can have or when, how many chores you get done during the day, how much energy you have, the obedience of your child, etc).

2. How do you find your worth in Christ when you see yourself struggling with this? How do you bring this lie back to the gospel/ how can you apply the gospel to your worth?

3. Do you recognize this lie even when you are excelling in it?

4. What verse have you memorized on God's view of you?

I keep coming back to this verse: "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshipped created things rather than their creator!"

Also "Your beauty should be... that of your inner-self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, for this is the way, the holy women of the past who put their hope in God made themselves beautiful!!"

  1. Katie! Thank you so much for being so open and vunerable. I have really been pushed to the Cross and challenged of my own very distrust of Christ in my identity. I am so thankful that God is molding you and changing you to be a woman whose heart pleases Him. Love you friend- fighting for you in prayer.
