Within the first few weeks of starting a neighborhood Bible study a few years back, a neighbor said as she left my home, “What I want to know is who I am!” I thought about it for years. She stopped coming, but her frustrated statement stayed in my head.
Who are you? How do you become your best self? Why does it matter very much? An answer is, for starters, that you are a one and only; the world needs your voice, your persona, your gifts and vision. My husband would say as I timidly stepped onto the weight room floor at the gym, “Take your space.” So, I’ll pass the same along to you, “Take your space.”
The reason for writing “Submission Is Not Silence” was to discover the answer to these quandaries in my soul and to share what I discovered from the Bible with you. It became an adventure for which I didn’t know the outcome at first. But now I am excited and filled with anticipation.
Becoming all you are created for by God is not a self-centered journey; it is an adventure of discovering God and finding your place in His kingdom. It is the process of affirming your place and taking it; it is an act of love to your Creator.
It is up to you.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36).You are free to go, do and be. God has and will continue to equip you as you move forward.
