I Am Woman

What better way to start off the month of March, recognized as Women’s History Month, than with my favorite lyrics from the Helen Reddy song that birthed the phrase “I am woman, hear me roar!”

You can bend but never break me
‘Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

The Devil Is Defeated

Heavy burdens beyond control

That’s the devil trying to steal

Kill and destroy, attack with zeal

Leaving a giant gaping hole

Wreaking havoc deep in your soul

Tiny pieces left to rebuild

To find a way you must be willed

Just spread your wings, take flight and soar

Light of your life shines bright once more

No dreams deferred or unfulfilled

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
‭‭— John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬
