Balancing Power and Love as Women

It is not easy for many of us. Balancing power and love as women. We are dominant and influential in public spaces. We control everything around us and have the capacity to demand what we want. But then we come home to you. And try hard to love you without losing ourselves in the process. We struggle to make you feel secure, knowing you are secretly just as sensitive and scared. We do our best to not hide behind your towering presence. To not be silenced and made invisible by you. But to instead surrender all of our fears over to you and the God we serve. But we surrender only after believing you have done the same. First to God and then to our union. We surrender only when we believe it is safe to do so and when everything suggests there is more to gain than to lose.
