Good Morning Beautiful Women of God! This blog is especially for you today. My daughter had a couple of unpleasant conversations with two “Christian” women this morning and it caused me to start thinking about women of God. Oh, how precious we are to our Lord! He loves us so much. When we were created God said it is good. As I look out this morning I see the sun shining brightly through the trees. I can feel the warmth on my skin and I smell the most beautiful aroma from flowers growing nearby. Then a thought hit me; Wow! I am being loved on this morning by my Lord. I’m not certain that I actually pause long enough to notice that God is loving on me with all the beauty that He surrounds me with. Sometimes as women life can really knock us down. There are so many varying degrees of who we are supposed to be. We have the feminist movement that tells us we can do anything that men can do; sometimes even better. Then we have some ultra conservative movements that tell us we can’t even make a noise without our husband’s permission. What are we to do and feel as a woman living in today’s messed up confusing world?
As I’m soaking in the beauty of God’s creation around me I am thinking about how as women of God we live out being not only God’s ambassadors but that we were actually created in His likeness. We have the attributes of God within us. When He created both male and female we were both created in God’s image. Do we display this image to other women? Are we being the best women that we can be? Are we honoring God with our speech; our actions? I told you that I have a lot going on in my mind today.
This blog’s point is leading me to the heart of a woman. We can tell what indwells within a woman simply by the words that come out of her mouth. We can tell who she is spending time with or who she is NOT spending time with by the way she treats others. How do you measure up today in comparison to His image today?
I agree that we have a special set of struggles and circumstances that we go through in life as women. Some women are widows, single parents, divorced, broken and wounded. Some women are in abusive relationships because they don’t see any other way out. Some women are very happily married and are thrilled to enjoy the life that they have. Whichever situation you find yourself in today I implore you to take the time to stand outside and feel the love of our heavenly father. Stand for one moment and soak in the warm sun on your skin. Take a deep breath in and enjoy the fresh air or maybe some glorious scents from flowers close by. Women we are a special created being. Step into all that God has created you for today. Find rest and peace knowing that God not only has you wrapped in His loving arms but that everything around us speaks of His goodness.
Ladies you are each beautiful wonderful women created for a specific plan and purpose. Are you walking in all that has been prepared for you today? What is coming out of your heart? Rest in Jesus and His love. Allow Him to consume you to your very core ladies. Take time today just to spend time with Him. Love on Him and allow Him to love you back. Ladies, others will know if you have been with Him. Ladies, others will know where your heart is and who you keep company with just by your words and actions. So take the time out from your busy day spend some of it with God then take that love, that peace, that warmth to someone else and give it to them. Praise Him Today!!!
