Are you wound tight?
I once saw a bumper sticker that summed me up perfectly as a woman.
Lead, follow or get out of the way.
Without trying, I am normally a take-charge kind of person.
With the ability to lead comes the temptation to take charge, even when it isn’t my responsibility to do so.
All it takes is for me to see “life” happening contrary to my opinion and I become wound tight. I will admit it- as a woman, I am not at my best when I’m wound tight.
Usually, that means I have been loaded with ample doses of fear (because let’s be honest, nothing gets us wound tighter than fear). This leaves me riled up and ready to take control of events and if necessary, people.
I think this scenario has happened countless times to women throughout the ages.
Amazingly, even to Jesus’ mother.
