A Strong Woman vs. A Woman of Strength
A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face . . . but a woman of strength is adorned with the beauty of God’s grace working in her life.
A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything . . . but a woman of strength exhibits the virtues of courage and fortitude in the midst of her very trials and fears.
A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her . . . but a woman of strength is other-centered and so gives the very best of herself – indeed, all she’s got – to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids those same in the future . . . but a woman of strength realizes that life’s mistakes can also be unexpected blessings from God and so capitalizes on them and learns from them.
A strong woman works out everyday to keep her body in shape . . . but a woman of strength prays daily and builds solid relationships to keep her soul in shape.
A strong woman believes that she is strong enough for life’s journey . . . but a woman of strength has the faith to know that it is through life’s journey – with all of its ups and downs – that she will become strong and fully live her vocation whether single, married, or as a consecrated religious, in the midst of the modern world.
