SHE IS STRONG!!!

Olawunmi Okupe
Posted August 16, 2020 from Nigeria

      A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter. A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world.      The strong woman that I know feels all the pain, all the heartache, all the fears and she still chose not to quit. I see beauty shining through her brokenness, grace through her grief, triumph through her trial, and faith through her fears. Yes, I see the struggle, but  so much more than the struggle, I see a SURVIVOR.     Despite the scars and the pain, she chose to keep fighting. She chose to keep living. She chose to still be winning battles on her knees, because those battle scars are nothing to be ashamed of. They are signs of victory. The cracks don't mean you are broken, they mean you were able to withstand the pressure without falling apart. You are a WARRIOR! You are a SURVIVOR! You are LOVED! You are NEEDED! You are WANTED! You are a BEAUTIFUL! You are STRONG!

          Let every heartbeat be a reminder of the STRONG BEING that you are, the SHE BEING that would not give up.     

          Hey Strong Woman! keep fighting! Keep trusting! Keep living! Become the woman of excellence God designed you to be.

Hello Olawunmi,
Thank you for this uplifting poem. I love how in it beauty and mess, strength and weakness come together to create masterpiece, so that even the suffering is not wasted. Indeed we were designed for excellence, and if indeed we crack under pressure, the Master porter can patch them cracks up, no worries.. And we rise stronger in greater grace.
I love that the ' battle scars are not something to be ashamed of' but to be worn proudly as a sign that we persevered.
Thank you for sharing with us,
stay sparkly:)

Wow! So uplifting. The scars... indeed very many of them, reminds us that we survived. We can always win the battle on our knees.

I am not broken, I am a Survivor!

Thanks, Sis.

This is a spectacular poem that really reminded us the virtues God has bestowed on us as a woman.We never gives up even when all the hopes has gone. We are wonderfully made with all the qualities of virtuous woman. It has proved to us that's always light at the end of tunnel. There is power, greatness, unique love, grace etc. we possessed regardless.
Keep inspiring and motivating us. We need more of this at time like this sis.
Good job! Thank you!
