Today's interview comes from Mercy, a great woman of faith who, in her own words:
"[believes] a servant's heart is paramount in how we should live our lives. We are our brothers' or sisters' keeper and therefore I'm always looking for ways to impact others".
With that being said you can see why Mercy chose to tackle the timely subject of the importance of acknowledging the contributions of the women of the Bible so that we (as modern women) can, not only be impacted by their stories but, have role-models to relate to, identify with and "pass onto our next generation of Christian women".
Who is your favourite woman of the Bible and why? What would you say that modern women can learn from her?
When sitting down thinking about this, I can’t honestly say I have a favourite. Now this is not because there are not a number of remarkable women in the Bible- there are too many to mention- however, I haven’t studied them closely enough to give an honest answer. This will be something I put up there to do as, being a Christian woman, we need great role models to relate to and to also pass onto to our next generation of Christian women.
I am a Christian woman who is…
I am a Christian woman who is independent but also, at the same time, dependent. I’m an independent thinker and I know what I want, and will go forth to get it- but I’m dependent on God to show me the way and how to fulfil His will.
I am a Christian woman who is not…
I am a Christian woman who is not suppressed in her thinking but instead I am free to be the best me I can possibly be.
Any final words of encouragement?
Women have been ordained with a wonderful power of influence, as you will find with the stories in the Bible. How we choose to use and portray that power will greatly impact our immediate environment as well as our wider environment. Use it wisely and don’t be afraid of it.
