A Godly Woman
There is a woman that is needed in the world today. And I’m sorry to say that it is not a nasty woman. It is not a woman who wishes to be loud, vulgar and proud. The world does not need women who desire to be offensive, spiteful, ugly, or unpleasant, or hard to deal with. The world has seen enough of these kinds of women.
Because of nasty women, divorce rates are high, families are being torn apart, and innocent lives are being taken. This is not to say that it is all of their faults, but the contribution that they have made to said issues is to be held into account.
It is my belief that nasty women are ungodly women. These are women who have not made God to be the head of their lives, and they go against everything God ordained for His created women to be for.
“Help, LORD, for the godly man (woman) ceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.”
~ Psalm 12:1 – Parentheses added by me.
What the world needs are godly women. Women who don’t wish to be the head of their homes or their lives, but who desire to honor God as the Head of their lives. These are women who are the true portrait of femininity. They are:
- Women who fear the LORD (Proverbs 31:30).
- Women who are humble (Philippians 2:3-5).
- Respectful, submissive helpers to their husbands (Genesis 2:18; Ephesians 5:22-24).
- Builders and keepers of their homes (Proverbs 14:1; Titus 2:4-5).
- Blessed mothers of children (Proverbs 31:28).
- Holy in their conduct (1 Peter 1:15).
- Wise and kind with their speech (Proverbs 31:26).
- Modest in the way that they dress (Proverbs 31:22).
- Willing workers with their hands (Proverbs 31:27).
- Women who are joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled (Galatians 5:22-23).
Godly women are the kind of women who know that their true worth is not in what they choose to make of themselves while here in the earth, but rather that their worth is in Jesus Christ. Godly women are real women.
Let the real women please rise up!
This is a call to you and I that we are needed. We are needed to shine our lights of true womanhood into the darkness that is in this world; to point the future generations of sons and daughters towards the holiness and righteousness of God. We are needed to teach and guide our children into His ways (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).
Godly women, young and old, this is a call to you to be that woman that the world really needs to see; married or single.
“Women of God can never be like women of the world.
The world has enough women who are tough;
we need women who are tender.
There are enough women who are coarse;
we need women who are kind.
There are enough women who are rude;
we need women who are refined.
We have enough women of fame and fortune;
we need more women of faith.
We have enough greed;
we need more goodness.
We have enough vanity;
we need more virtue.
We have enough popularity;
We need more purity.”

“Here’s to godly women. May we know them. May we be them.
May we raise them.” ~ Erica Dunomes
