You were created to blessed-and be a blessing to other. In Luke 13, Jesus healed the woman who had been bent over for 18 years. As He raised her up, He told her, "Woman,thou art loosed." He set her free. Jesus wants to set you free, lift you up, encourage you, heal you, tell you that your identity is in Him, not in your past. It is my prayer that each of these daily words of encouragement will remind you whose you are, giving you the courage and the strength to take on the world and walk in the victory of your Savior. This daily calendar has been designed with God's daughters in mind. However, men can also be encouraged by substituting "sons" where appropriate, or by simply gaining a better understanding of God's handiwork when He uniquely created woman.
