Today I would love to share with you all something that is on heart, and that is what it means to be a driven woman. When I say driven I am not talking about the women who claim to be feminists who are completely anti-men, but more the woman who isn’t afraid to be who God has called her to be. The woman who doesn’t hold back despite the fears and challenges that she will face, because she knows who is in control of her life. This was shared with me by a lady in my small group, so I cannot take credit of these words, but they are beautiful and touching, and I think that every woman needs to hear this.
The Propel Woman Is…
Unapologetic, she is a woman who leads.
Unshakable, she is rooted and grounded in the love and grace of God.
Undaunted, by the challenges of life.
Unstoppable, as she follows the call of God.
Unmovable, she will not be manipulated.
Unselfish, she is generous with her words, thoughts, resources, and relationships.
Undefeatable, she knows no weapon formed against her shall prosper.
Unbound, her history will not define her destiny.
Unstuck, she moves gracefully from one season to the next.
Undone by the love, grace, goodness, kindness and mercy of God.
Uncommon, she is not chasing worldly success, fame, or fortune.
Untamable, she is dangerous to the kingdom of darkness.
Unlimited, her potential in Christ is limitless.
Unleashed, she is not held captive to old paradigms or stereotypes.
Unashamed, she does not minimize or hide who God has made her to be.
Unpretentious, she is real, down to earth, and accessible.
If you have any doubts in your mind about who you are I want you to know that you are more than capable of being who God has called you to be. And here are just a few ways that may help you battle any self-doubts or insecurities.

1. God has a plan for you.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Trust that God’s plan for you is bigger than any fears you may face.
2. Get affirmation by getting into the Bible.

Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.” When you dig deep into God’s Word, you will find that there are all kinds of Biblical affirmation. If the God who created our entire Universe believes in you, then you should believe in yourself as well.
3. Get connected with other like-minded believers.
When you get connected with other believers you will be surprised to find yourself feeling encouraged and refreshed. Although, I would advise that you be careful who you are surrounding yourselves with, because some people enjoy bringing others down, and I know that sounds horrible, but for those who have been to a southern baptist church they can tell you from experience that this is true. Find people who are going to inspire you, and encourage you to be all that you can be.
I hope that this poem and advice will help you to stand up, and be the woman that you need or want to be. Just remember, that “You, yes you, can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” Philippians 4:13.
