Woman of God
What does it mean to be a woman of God?
I think it means embodying an almost impossible balance.
Sensitive: Listens patiently, cuddles children, in tune to feelings, tender, delicate
Strong: anchor in crisis, capable, supports, pulls weight, bridges gaps, volunteers
Friendly: Warm, interested, welcoming, encouraging, genuine, causes smiles
Guarded: Vigilant, veiled, guards the sacred, "feminine mystique"
Humble: Soft-spoken, doesn't seek attention, praises others, thinks then speaks
Brave: Speaks truth, resolves conflict, advises, corrects, valiant, determined
Beautiful: sweet disposition, elegant, classic style, little attentions to appearance
Modest: appropriate, Biblical, natural, pure, beyond reproach, not given to self focus
Sounds impossible. Perfection, godliness, righteousness, holiness...they all sound impossible in human strength. However God enables the called and He has called for godly women.
Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God's ideal for His daughters. I haven't even come close to living up to this ideal,but it is my aim.
