Biblical Wallflowers: Learning from Overlooked Women of the Bible

Biblical Wallflowers: Learning from Overlooked Women of the Bible

I am a wallflower by nature. You’ve seen women like me. (You might even be a woman like me.) Comfortable on the sidelines. Terrorized at the thought of speaking in the group. You’ve got nothing to say, especially compared to THEM. Experience bears this out, so I remained at an emotional distance relationally many years. That is until I began to understand how God sees me., and how He uses women just like me for great and eternal purposes. In the Bible, I discovered how you and I are to conceptually understand His love and goodness toward us.

Across Scripture we find examples of women like you and me who help show us how He embraces the individual. The lives and experiences of these insignificant Nobodies have influenced me greatly. I no longer find myself in a room feeling invisible or unworthy of being chosen and used by God. You might say these Biblical wallflowers have helped me learn how to be seen and used by God in this life. In fact, I’ve moved from feeling invisible to being what I might call spiritually invincible.

You, too, can experience the freedom and joy that comes from learning how to become seen for all the right reasons and in all the right ways. Let’s look at nine women just like you and me—comfortable in the shadows, living their best wallflower lives, who God uses to show us His love and design for our own lives.

Biblical Wallflowers #1: Abigail

(1 Samuel 25:2-42)

Abigail demonstrated wisdom and diplomacy in a critical situation involving her husband Nabal and David. When David’s men sought provisions from Nabal, he responded rudely, provoking David’s anger. Abigail intervened, bringing food and making peace with David. Her actions averted disaster and showcased her intelligence and courage. After Nabal’s death, David married Abigail, recognizing her as a woman of virtue and discernment. God uses her in her personality and gifting to become more than she ever dreamed possible.

Biblical Wallflowers #2: Priscilla

(Acts 18:1-3, 18-26; Romans 16:3-4; 1 Corinthians 16:19)

Priscilla, along with her husband Aquila, played a significant role in the early Christian community. They were tentmakers by trade and worked with the Apostle Paul. Priscilla is mentioned several times in the New Testament, and she is often listed before her husband, indicating her active involvement in teaching and mentoring. In Acts 18, she and Aquila instruct Apollos in the ways of the Lord. She uses the places where God plants her, sharing her life, experiences, and understanding of who God is in a way God uses mightily.

Biblical Wallflowers #3: Jael

(Judges 4:17-22; 5:24-27)

Jael is a woman who played a crucial role in the defeat of the Canaanite general Sisera. After he fled from the battlefield, seeking refuge, Jael welcomed him into her tent. While he slept, she drove a tent peg through his temple, delivering a decisive blow to the enemy. The Song of Deborah in Judges 5 praises Jael for her bravery in fulfilling a key role in Israel’s victory.

Biblical Wallflowers #4: Joanna

(Luke 8:1-3; 24:1-10)

Joanna was one of the women who followed and supported Jesus during his ministry. She is mentioned in the Gospel of Luke as having been healed by Jesus and later becoming a benefactor to him. Joanna is also one of the women who discovered the empty tomb and witnessed the angelic proclamation of Jesus’ resurrection. Her role in financially supporting Jesus’ ministry and being a witness to the resurrection is noteworthy.

Biblical Wallflowers #5: Huldah

(2 Kings 22:14-20)

Huldah was a prophetess during the reign of King Josiah. When the Book of the Law was discovered in the temple, Josiah sent a delegation to inquire of the Lord through Huldah. Her authoritative response played a crucial role in the religious reforms initiated by Josiah.

Biblical Wallflowers #6: Tabitha (Dorcas)

(Acts 9:36-43)

Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, was a woman known for her acts of charity and kindness. She made tunics and other garments for the widows in her community. When she died, the apostle Peter raised her from the dead, showcasing the impact of her benevolent deeds.

Biblical Wallflowers #7: The Woman with the Alabaster Jar

(Matthew 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9; Luke 7:36-50)

An unnamed woman, often identified as Mary of Bethany, demonstrates profound love and devotion to Jesus by anointing him with expensive perfume from an alabaster jar. Despite criticism from onlookers, Jesus praises her actions, emphasizing the significance of her gesture in preparation for his burial. This woman’s act symbolizes deep faith, love, and understanding of Jesus’ impending sacrifice.

Biblical Wallflowers #8: Euodia and Syntyche

(Philippians 4:2-3)

Euodia and Syntyche were two women in the early Christian community at Philippi. Although their specific contributions are not detailed, the Apostle Paul mentions them by name and acknowledges their partnership in the gospel. This suggests their active involvement in spreading the Christian message.

Biblical Wallflowers #9:The Widow with Two Mites

(Mark 12:41-44; Luke 21:1-4)

In a brief but powerful story, Jesus highlights the sacrificial giving of a poor widow who contributes two small copper coins to the temple treasury. Though her offering is minuscule in monetary value, Jesus commends her for giving all she had. This woman’s act of generosity exemplifies the principle of giving from the heart and sacrificing despite having very little.

These women may not be as well-known as some of the major figures in the Bible, but their stories offer valuable insights into the roles and contributions of women in biblical narratives. They are here for you and me. These testimonies live in the pages of Scripture so that we can see more clearly how God sees his people—even the ones who feel left out and less than.

Four Ways to Draw Inspiration from Biblical Wallflowers

There are at least four ways you and I can benefit from these stories about obscure women on the sidelines.

There is Strength in Diversity

Do not miss the sprinkling of these women across two thousand years, in different cultures, ethnic backgrounds, and stations in life. There is no mold we must fit into. They were not limited to one specific role or task, demonstrating that wallflower nobodies can contribute in various ways. Whether it’s through acts of kindness, courage, wisdom, or financial support, the Bible showcases a spectrum of strengths that women possess. You and I are to embrace our God-given unique qualities and understand that our contributions, however small they may seem, can have a significant impact.

Aim for Character and Virtue

The testimony of these lives showcase the importance of character and virtue over societal expectations or outward appearances. PRAISE GOD! Many of these women were recognized for their wisdom, courage, and faithfulness rather than disappearing into the woodwork of their conventional roles. You and I need to ask God to cultivate our inner strength, develop more resilience, and plant in us integrity. For these qualities hold lasting value and can make a lasting impact.

Your Faithfulness in the Ordinary Changes the World

These examples of women like the Widow with Two Mites or the Woman with the Alabaster Jar illustrate the power of small acts of faithfulness, kindness, and generosity.

Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”  Zechariah 4:10 NLT

Remember, seemingly insignificant contributions, when offered with a believing heart, are highly valuable to God. It’s how He does much of His Kingdom work. What we do in our daily lives matters. Our God is in the ordinary, and He has ordained it for changing the world. The testimonies of these women show us the value of generosity and compassion for the individual and for the body as a whole.

Aim for an Audience of One

Your life, worth, and contributions, though unnoticed by the world, are seen and valued by God. He sees you, knows you, and has a plan for your life, even if and when others in our lives may not. Just as these women in the Bible were sometimes overlooked in their social connections or by society at large, they were recognized by God, Jesus and those we might deem the A-Team of Christianity. Wallflower Friend, your efforts are seen and appreciated by the only One that matters.

Embrace your uniqueness, cultivate virtuous qualities, engage in acts of kindness, and recognize the significance of their contributions in the eyes of God.

If you are like me and have trouble taking God at His Word in this arena, Can You See Me, Now? Good News for the Lonely, Left Out, and Less Than, is for you. As I have confessed, I naturally operate out of a wallflower mentality that keeps me hidden, unable to experience all God created me to enjoy for His glory, and my good. In Can You See Me, Now I’m passing on my notes to you for how to say “goodbye” to invisible you and start living life seen, known, and loved.

I wrote it for you. Buy the book. You won’t be sorry you did. You can learn more and purchase a copy here.

The Art of Memorizing Scripture

The Art of Memorizing Scripture

In the whirlwind of our daily lives, finding moments for spiritual growth can feel like a daunting task, especially for busy Christian women juggling multiple responsibilities. However, amidst the chaos, there exists a transformative practice that holds the power to deepen our connection with God—the art of memorizing Scripture. Join me on this journey as we explore three compelling reasons to commit God’s Word to memory, hear an inspiring story of someone impacted by Scripture memorization, and discover three practical techniques for busy women to make memorizing Scripture a reality this year.

Three Reasons to Memorize Scripture

  1. Nourishment for the Soul

In our hectic schedules, we often neglect our spiritual well-being. Memorizing Scripture acts as a source of continual nourishment for our souls. Just as we prioritize feeding our bodies with regular meals, our spirits require the sustenance of God’s Word. The verses we memorize become a wellspring of comfort, guidance, and encouragement, readily available to sustain us in every circumstance.

  1. A Weapon Against Challenges

Life is filled with challenges that can leave us feeling overwhelmed and powerless. However, when we store God’s Word in our hearts, we equip ourselves with a powerful weapon against the struggles that come our way. Like a warrior preparing for battle, memorizing Scripture allows us to access God’s promises and truths, providing strength and resilience in times of adversity.

  1. Deepening Intimacy with God

Memorizing Scripture is not just an intellectual exercise; it’s a pathway to a more intimate relationship with God. As we commit His Word to memory, we internalize His truths, allowing them to shape our thoughts, attitudes, and actions. This deepening connection fosters a sense of closeness to our Creator, transforming our faith from a mere belief into a lived experience.

An Inspiring Story

Consider the life of Corrie ten Boom, a remarkable woman whose story exemplifies the profound impact of memorizing Scripture. During World War II, Corrie and her family sheltered Jews from the Nazis, ultimately leading to their arrest and imprisonment in concentration camps. In the direst of circumstances, Corrie clung to the verses she had hidden in her heart.

One day, faced with the harsh reality of her sister Betsie’s failing health in Ravensbrück concentration camp, Corrie recited the entire 91st Psalm—the same Psalm Betsie had requested (from The Hiding Place, Chp. 8). In the midst of the darkness, these memorized words provided a glimmer of hope and comfort, creating a sacred space where God’s presence was felt even in the bleakest moments.

Four Techniques for Busy Women

Use your Technology for Good

Busy schedules often leave us glued to our smartphones or computer screens. Leverage these digital platforms by creating visual aids for the verses you’re memorizing. Design simple graphics or use apps that allow you to overlay text onto photos. Two are like include YouVersion and Word Swag. I download these as lock screens and then create a special folder for them where my pictures are stored. This way, you can glance at your phone during the day and reinforce your memory with visual cues.

Incorporate Scripture into Daily Routines

Seize the snippets of time scattered throughout your day to engage with Scripture. Whether you’re waiting in line, commuting, or cooking dinner, use these moments to recite and reflect on a verse you’re working to memorize. By integrating Scripture into your daily routines, you’ll gradually build a repertoire of memorized passages without adding extra time commitments.

Use Scripture Cards

Another way I incorporate Scripture into my routine is with physical cards. There is often something about holding it in my hand or placing the cards where I can see them that gives just one more opportunity to make the words stick. That’s why I design these for The Stirring Faith Company. My favorite set for getting started is our Plaid Collection Set that includes twelve verses every Christian should know. It’s simple as well as foundational. I created it with my special needs daughter in mind. I cannot tell you what it meant to me hearing her recite several of these to us a few weeks ago. It’s a great place to begin, for yourself, and anyone you know who might need the visual reminders.

You can find it here 

  Repeat and Associate

Memorization thrives on repetition and association. Choose a verse and repeat it consistently throughout the day. Some experts encourage reciting a verse 10 times per day when you are learning it for the first time. A tool I use and encourage my family to utilize is an app called Fighter Verses. This app helps tremendously because it offers lock screen images of verses, songs, an audio player for having the verse read outload to you, and games. The downside is that it costs $3. I prefer free apps, but in the grand scheme, the price is well worth the benefits gained.

Additionally, associate the verse with specific cues or locations. For example, link a verse about strength to your morning coffee routine or associate a verse about peace with your bedtime ritual. Creating these mental connections enhances recall and makes memorization more accessible.

Make This Your Year

As we embark on a new year, let’s make memorizing Scripture a goal that transcends our busy lives. Embrace the reasons that make this practice invaluable, draw inspiration from those who have gone before us, and adopt practical techniques tailored to the rhythm of our bustling days.

Imagine the impact of having a treasure trove of God’s Word stored within you, ready to guide, comfort, and strengthen you in every season. The art of memorizing Scripture is not an additional burden but a transformative journey that aligns with the flow of our lives, bringing us closer to God in the midst of our daily hustle.

This year, let’s not merely survive; let’s thrive by nourishing our souls, equipping ourselves for challenges, and deepening our intimacy with God through the beautiful art of memorizing Scripture.

Unmasking Satan’s Strategies: Five Biblical Truths for Spiritual Warfare

Satan's strategies

Unmasking Satan’s Strategies

Hello, beautiful sisters in Christ! It’s Cheri Strange here, and I’m so thrilled to dive into today’s discussion about a topic that’s close to our hearts: understanding Satan’s strategies and how we can stand firm against them. As Christian women who long to desire more of God in our everyday lives, it’s crucial that we heed the Bible’s wisdom and not be outwitted by the enemy, for we are not ignorant of his designs (2 Corinthians 2:11). So, let’s explore five of Satan’s strategies he often uses against us, backed by Scripture, to equip ourselves for this spiritual battle.

The Distraction Tactic

The first of Satan’s strategies is to distract us from our focus on God. In 1 Peter 5:8, we read:

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

Just as a lion sneaks up on its prey, Satan seeks to divert our attention away from God through the chaos of life, materialism, and worldly desires. But it can also happen through the good in our lives. In my life it is the urgent that wars for my time against the important. I think a point worth making is that the distraction tactic, although as old as time, is tailor made for effectiveness in each individual.

It’s crucial that you and I be able to recognize what distracts us from our focus on God, and be watchful to resist these distractions. Taking time each day to refocus on God’s Word, prayer, and His presence, is crucial for our hearts to center (and recenter) on Him.

The Lie of Self-Sufficiency

Satan’s second strategy is to deceive us into thinking we can navigate life on our own, apart from God’s strength. In 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, Paul writes:

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

The enemy whispers lies about our self-sufficiency, pushing us to rely on our own abilities and resources. But that never works.

You are not enough on our own.

Neither am I.

There is a better way. Embracing the reality that we are not able to navigate all that comes our way can lead us to victory. When we acknowledge our need for God in our daily struggles and difficult challenges, His power shines through our inadequacies, leaving the enemy of our souls defeated.

The Accusation Game

The third of Satan’s strategies is to accuse us relentlessly, attempting to burden us with guilt and shame. In Revelation 12:10, we’re reminded of his title,

“the accuser of our brothers.”

Satan desires to make us forget who we are, causing us to feel unworthy of God’s love and forgiveness. And he’s really good at it. Our only hope of defeating him is believing the truth of God’s word over the barrage of lies. Truths such as:

  •  1 John 1:9 where we are assured that in Christ, we are forgiven and clean,
  •  2 Corinthians 5:17 that tells us that whatever we were before is gone. Jesus makes us new and nothing can take that away from us.
  • Psalm 103:12 reminding us that our sins, however terrible, destructive, or conniving, have been removed from us as far as the east is from the west, and
  • Romans 8:1 reassuring us, “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

When Satan tries to accuse you and me, the path to victory is remembering our identity in Christ and rebuke Satan’s lies with the truth of God’s Word.

satan's strategies

The Deception of False Teaching

Satan’s fourth strategy involves spreading false teaching and leading us astray from the pure, unadulterated truth of God’s Word. In 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Paul warns,

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.”

Friend, this can be so subtle. And we are sure to lose unless we remain in God’s word regularly. There is no better way to distinguish between authenticity and some twisted nuance than becoming saturated with the real thing. He’s coming for our confidence in Scripture and God, Himself. This is a call to be vigilant against doctrines and teachings that deviate from Scripture. Our only hope is to stay rooted in the Word of God and seek wise, biblically sound teachers who lead us closer to God, not away from Him.

 

The Seeds of Doubt

The fifth of Satan’s strategies is to sow seeds of doubt and confusion about God’s character and His Word. In 2 Corinthians 11:3, the apostle Paul writes,

“But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.”

Just as Satan tempted Eve with doubt in the garden, he seeks to undermine our trust in God’s goodness and faithfulness. Somehow, he crafts our thinking to consider, like Eve, that God might just be holding out on us. Sister, this strategy works. Time and time, again.

When these doubts arise, our best course of action is to recognize what is happening and stop the internal conversation. Don’t give it any energy or power. Instead, we absolutely must replace those thoughts with who God says He is and what He has done, so that we can trust that He can do what He promises to do.

My friend, it’s essential that we remain vigilant and alert to Satan’s strategies against us. As Christian women desiring more of God in our everyday lives, we must be equipped with the powerful weapon of God’s Word to counteract these schemes. Let us not be ignorant of his designs so that we can come against him, standing firm in our faith.

May the Lord bless and protect you as you continue to pursue a deeper relationship with Him and resist the enemy’s schemes. Remember, we are not ignorant of his designs.

Consistent Daily Devotions Amid Life’s Chaos

Consistent Daily Devotions Amidst Life’s Chaos: Grace-Filled Strategies for a New Season

As we step into the first of a new season, many of us find ourselves in a reflective mood. After months of a relaxed summer schedule, it’s a natural time to regroup and reassess our priorities. It’s an opportunity to rethink our time, focus, and where we want to be in the next season. In the midst of this transition, we often desire to establish or rekindle a consistent daily devotional habit, but life’s chaos can make it feel like an elusive goal. I understand the difficulty, the challenge, and the disappointing sense of failure that can come with trying to maintain a consistent daily devotional habit. So, what’s a busy woman to do when she’s already doing more than she’s able? It’s a great time to explore how to maintain consistent daily devotions amidst life’s chaos as we step into this new season.

Let me share a bit of my own journey to encourage you. As a mother of eight children, I know all too well how demanding life can be. There have been days when I’ve felt like there simply wasn’t enough time or energy left for my personal devotion with God. It’s easy to get discouraged when your to-do list seems to multiply by the minute, and finding a moment of quiet reflection feels like an unattainable luxury.

Embrace Grace Over Perfection for More Consistent Daily Devotionals

First and foremost, my dear friend, allow me to invite you to embrace grace over perfection. It’s a lesson I had to learn the hard way. As moms, we often set high standards for ourselves, wanting to be everything to everyone. But in the process, we can forget that God cherishes our hearts more than our achievements.

Start small

Don’t pressure yourself with the expectation of hours of uninterrupted devotion time. Even if it’s just 10-15 minutes in the early morning or a brief pause during naptime, it’s a beautiful offering to God. Remember that God values your consistency and desire to seek Him daily, even when life feels overwhelming.

Establish a Sacred Space and Time for More Consistent Daily Devotionals

Creating a sacred space and time for your daily devotions can make a world of difference. I often found solace in a cozy corner of our home, a place where I could retreat from the chaos and focus on God. Whether it’s early in the morning before the household wakes up or during a quiet moment in the evening, having a dedicated space and time makes it easier to resist life’s distractions.

Yes, it might require some adjustment in your daily routine (I have moved both time and space through the years), but it’s a commitment worth making. Finding the best time for your season of life is really answering the question, “What is the first moment when you could choose to do something else besides the urgent?” Remember, God honors the effort you put into seeking Him, no matter when or where it happens.

Utilize Devotional Guides and Apps

One of the challenges I faced was knowing where to start or what to study during my devotional time. This is where devotional guides and apps can be your faithful companions. They provide structure and inspiration, which can be a lifesaver for busy moms like us.

YouVersion, for example, offers a treasure trove of Bible and devotional plans tailored to various interests and spiritual needs. You can choose plans on topics that resonate with your heart and the guidance provided simplifies your daily devotions. It’s like having a trusted friend walk alongside you on your spiritual journey.

It is my privilege to partner with YouVersion for this very endeavor in the lives of Believers all over the world. YouVersion is not only a free app, but one that allows you to set reminders to help you make your devotional time a habit amid your crazy schedule. You can find the plans I have written here.

Invite Accountability and Share the Journey

Lastly, consider inviting a trusted friend or family member to share in this pursuit of daily devotion. As moms, sisters, wives, and friends, we know the power of accountability. Sharing your goals and struggles with someone who can encourage you and hold you accountable can make a significant difference. Since my phone is always with me, it makes sense to find a way to achieve this goal of accountability using technology, like YouVersion readily available.

Additionally, consider sharing your devotional insights and experiences with other women who understand your journey. Sharing what is really going on in your life often inspires others and creates a sense of commitment to your own devotional practice. When you know others are journeying with you, it can provide that extra motivation to stay consistent.

The most important aspect of establishing some consistency is knowing you are not alone. God knows life is demanding, but He wants you to know Him and seek Him every day. He sees your heart’s desire to seek Him, even amidst the chaos.

 

So embrace this grace. Create a sacred space. Utilize Bible plans and devotional guides, and invite accountability into your life. Your pursuit of God is a precious offering, and He meets you where you are, rather than waiting for you to get where you wish you were.

In the midst of the challenges you face each day, may you find moments of grace and peace in the presence of our loving Heavenly Father. He understands the busy seasons of life and cherishes every effort you make to draw near to Him.

With love and solidarity,
