A poem of encouragement for my daughters and any other woman who faces the doubts of worthiness. God loves you and you are worthy of His love and what He has called you to. Go in His strength.
She placed her wager, she placed her bid,
She thought she could and so she did.
Then fears and doubts raised their ugly head,
They filled her with anxiety, panic, worry, dread.
What if she faltered, perhaps even failed?
What if she worked so hard, but to no avail?
She was born for this, this she knew,
This was her destiny God called her to.
She felt her heart tug again, as a little girl,
“Follow me, my child, and change the world.
I have not called you this far to leave you alone,
You don’t have to change the world on your own.”
She dug deep, resolved to fight her way through.
With the strength of God, her belief renewed.
“I won’t give up!” she cried through her tears.
“I refuse to waste all this work, all these years.”
She checked her plans, she wrote her lists,
With inner strength and with clenched fists,
She faced her fears, she faced her doubt,
And punched them both in the mouth.
She knew she could, she still believed,
Now it was time to do, create, achieve.
