Woman, do you ever feel like a dead tree, even though you know God has filled you with living water and knowledge/wisdom that needs to be shared? Well, be encouraged. Do what's necessary to go from feeling like a dead tree to BEING the fruitful, flowering tree that God wants to make you.
When they say, "You are a strong woman." or "You are an independent woman.", are they being insulting? Are they suggesting that weak and dependent is what they expect the norm to be for women?

We all want to feel useful. We were created to DO SOMETHING! We all want something to "conquer". We're all conquerors, but of what?
The young people who are killing, stealing and taking over neighborhoods are conquering people and property... that's not theirs!
Since they need something purposeful to do, something to "conquer", let's began to teach them, as early as possible, that they need to go to school and conquer that book work, go to work and conquer that paperwork on their desk, get that driving job and conquer the loads that need to be delivered, get the factory job and conquer the products that need to be assembled at their workstation.
Since people want to conquer something, then people need to find something legal to conquer and make sure that it's something legal, not something that belongs to someone else and definitely not something living, because it is not your job to conquer people.
Now, GO! (Matthew 28:19-20)
