Eve, Captivating, and Xena, Warrior Princess

17 Jul

I am a huge fan of John Eldredge’s books, I even subscribe to his daily readings. I have to admit, though, to never being able to get through his wife, Stasi Eldredge’s book, Captivating.  This week, I received a daily reading called “Haunted by Eve”.  Here’s the link:  Haunted by Eve

Honestly, I don’t see myself haunted by the question, “Am I lovely?” I identify much more easily with the generalized every little boy question, “Do I have what it takes?”  I accepted long ago, that God made me the way he saw fit.  Brian finds me lovely and I know God does and so I have no need to ask that question.

Much more important to me is “Do I have what it takes?”  I would so much rather don my spiritual armor and be a warrior for God fighting alongside the son of Man and the angels, than be a little girl twirling around in a pretty party dress.

Any other women feel that way? If so, join me in the Warrior Princess for God club!

    I am so there with you, Natalie! Or should I say, Warrior Princess Natalie? I could care less about twirling in the pretty party dress (been there, done that!) But, give me the opportunity to fight along with the Son of God and I am so there! Thanks for a thoughtful and thought-provoking read!
