Her heart beats for the things of God, the bible is her source of inspiration, her focus and passion for the home is clearly seen. She rises up early and starts the day with a smile and a cheer expressing the goodness and blessing the days holds. Her words are charms of melody speaking cherished words that’s music to the ear of her listeners. Not only does she expect to be loved, she loves from the depths of her heart regardless of the situation she finds herself in. The words “I love you” never cease to ring a bell in the heart of her spouse.
She has the wisdom to choose her friends wisely getting rid of bad influences quickly. She endeavours to be in the company of godly women ,enthusiastic to learn the secrets of building a successful home. Every second of the day is precious in her eyes, she plans her day knowing exactly what needs to be done, when it should be done and how it must be done.
Titus 2:3-5 – 3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Her home is clean, tidy and always ready to receive visitors at anytime of the day or night. She isn’t tossed to and fro by the whims and charms of the society, neither is she moved by peer pressure, prompting from family or siblings. Her first priority after her God is her husband. She challenges any form of suggestion, comments or insinuations that ridicules him or his decisions. She covers his weaknesses and makes him feel like superman. She never puts him down nor let her family know of his short comings or deficiencies. In her eyes he is king, in the eyes of others he is the perfect man, husband and father, hardworking and always able to provide for all the family’s needs. She speaks to the king inside of him, disperses his fears, and draws out his strengths which motivate him to love more.
Her husband longs to come home from work to a place of comfort, peace and respite from the busy and hectic life at work. He is welcomed by her warm arms around him, with the whispers he longs to hear all day. His words are keenly listened to with every word heard and understood. He is not bugged down with only news from her, but he also gets to be heard and given an environment to shares his vision for life and passion for work.
His ideas are not ignored, ridiculed or disregarded. He finds encouragement from her lips to keep on ticking when the world only presents discouragements and doubts. He feels appreciated in her presence; her words are jewels to his ears and music in echoes of war. His unspoken words are heard loud and clear, the mysteries of his eyes are easily discerned.
Has anyone seen or heard of her? Who is she, where is she, where does she live? Does she actually exist? Is she human, robot or alien? Is this reality or myth?
Proverbs 31:10-12 – Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Let Me Be a Woman
This is not an easy book for a 21st century woman to read and natural instinct wanted me to yell out ‘no’ at times. But how wonderful to read a book that is completely honest about what a Christian woman ought to be like. It is not easy to be a godly woman but thank goodness that his book is here to point me in the right direction
