Let’s define two words so that we understand the true meaning of Flawdacious. The Free Dictionary defines flaw as an imperfection, defect, or blemish. It defines audacious as fearlessly, often recklessly daring; bold.
Now, to the heart of the matter. Let’s face it, we are all flawed. We are not perfect people. We make mistakes and some of them are doozies. Our mistakes often times leave us feeling as if we are defective and blemished. It is healthy to admit and understand that you are flawed. There was only one perfect person who ever lived and that is Jesus. All the rest of us are flawed.
The really good news is that we do not have to dwell on our flaws. We do not have to let them rule our lives and define the way we think about ourselves. Why? As a Christian woman, you have the living God inside you. You can trust what God says about you and how He will help you overcome your feelings of being flawed. God says in Isaiah 40:29 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” In Psalm 28:7 He says “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.”
Knowing we are flawed and living as though we are flawed are two very different things. We have already established the fact that we are all flawed. And, after asking forgiveness for any mistakes we make, we have the assurance that we can live full out because God has given us power through the Holy Spirit. I Timothy 1:7 says “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
To be “Flawdacious” is to know you are imperfect and yet to live bold and daring. If you are still all caught up in your mistakes (flaws), you can’t live a “flawdacious” life. It just won’t work. You have to once and for all give those flaws to Jesus. Ask Him to forgive you. Ask Him to then help you see just how amazing you are in His eyes.
Now that you understand what “flawdacious” is, I hope you will stand in its full power so you go out and live your life in boldness, daring to do what He has created you to do!
