6 Things a Woman Of God Should Never Apologize For

unapologetic woman

Have you ever heard the phrase “Do you!”? Well that’s a perfect reminder to never apologize for being the person God created you to be and doing what is best for you .

People will try to put you down or send you on a guilt trip for not being who they want you to be . Don’t fall victim to that, be authentically you and never apologize for being the woman of God that you are .

Here’s 6 Things a Woman Of God Should Never Apologize For:

Wanting some “Me” Time

We all need our personal space. Some people need more than others and some people can’t stand being alone. They need to be around people 24/7. I know a few people like that.

I on the other hand…. I’ve always been an introvert. I love my alone time. It allows me to think clearly, meditate, pray, spend time with Him, or whatever else I choose to do. Because of this, I would find myself apologizing for not wanting to hang out or spend time with my loved ones.

Confidence

I’ve had quite a few people in my lifetime, judge me without even getting to know me. They said I “seemed” like I thought I was better than everyone else. (If only they knew).

Half of them never took the time to get to know me before making that awful assumption and the other half that did, all had the common denominator as to why they presumed my character; my confidence. They said the way I carried myself was intimidating even though I had never done or said anything to make them deliberately feel that way.

Putting God 1st

Your beliefs and values are what makes you “You”. Never feel bad about standing up for what you believe in or choosing to do what is right over something you know is not Christian like.

Don’t feel pressured and don’t apologize for not wanting to do something that contradicts with your beliefs and God’s word. Sometimes it may be hard to be authentic in a society where superficial is praised. Be yourself unapologetically. 

Being Celibate

I’ve been in a couple of relationships, where I found myself apologizing to my boyfriend for making him wait for it. I can laugh about it now, but how ridiculous does that sound? Why should I apologize for wanting to honor God? Why should I apologize for you not loving me enough to make me your wife first? Why should I apologize for having the strength to even say “no”? The answer is simple… I shouldn’t.

Telling the Truth

It is important to be honest and truthful in a kind way, however, there is no need to feel guilty or apologize for telling someone how you feel. It should be done out of love, not in a manner that comes off like pure criticism.

Believe it or not, some women feel as though speaking up for themselves or disagreeing with their spouse is a form of disrespect. They feel as though they’re not submitting to their husband like the Bible instructs us to. As long as you make your point respectfully, you should never apologize for speaking the truth.

Your Testimony

Everyone has a story, but not everyone is willing to share theirs. Your past is your testimony. Don’t be ashamed to tell it. It’s what shaped you into the Woman of God you are today.

Sadly, people will judge you based on your past, but don’t let it keep you from sharing it and never apologize for using your testimony to encourage others. Sometimes the best advice we receive is from people who have lived through the same storm. God didn’t give you that testimony, to keep to yourself!

    eish a sad truth, I know exactly how that feels when people you thought really love and care for you turn out to be wishing you harm. lying and betraying you. God is good sometimes our blessings dnt come because God wants you to see first who to keep close and who to let go.

    I find myself apologizing all of the time for basically nothing. I’ve always been a bit of a follower and as I’ve grown and stepped more into a leadership role in band, at work and in many of my college classes I’ve found myself apologizing before I even say anything at times. I really needed to read this, to be shown that it’s ok to say what I feel or do what I feel in my heart is right and not apologize or feel guilty for it. God is great and everything I do I know it is His will being done through me and I have no reason to apologize. He brought me to it and He will bring me through it.

    AMEN. Exactly what is taking place in my life. I am glad knowing that God is with me every step of the way. I hate nobody though, I am just letting the will of God prevail. If it pleases him their time will come and they will find me on the other side I am now. For I am not willing to negotiate with the enemy any longer in any aspect of my life.

    Sadly, as you grow and mature in Spirit, you will be able to weed out the ppl who don’t genuinely hv your best interest in mind..It can be so hard,especially if its long time friendships or even family members, as you grow in the Word of God you will walk in joy and love,you’ll begin to glow and ppl will see it,sadly tho our Spirit will show you who only pretends to love you,again this cld be long times friendships and even a family member, God will begin to remove ppl from your life, at first you’ll be shocked and hurt upon coming to this realization, bt our Lord will replace them with new friends who love the new you! Be bold in the Word and your spiritual walk, God will enlighten you to who’s real and who’s nt,be prepared for His answer…
