1. She is at peace with herself and God.

5. She does not call attention to her physical beauty.
6. She considers homemaking a high and noble call.
7. She is a joyful person.

9. She has learned the secret of Isaiah 26:3.
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee."
Godly women are writing their history not on the pages of their own book, but in the lives of those around them whom they love and serve. They spend their lives unknown by the world in the narrow circle of their home within which they labor increasingly for God and others, but they will not lose their reward! God's eye is upon them as they live out their lives in the orbit of His will amid all the cares, sorrows and trials of the home.
One day, when the books are opened, their devotion will be commended by Him who sees and knows all. It's your choice today.... You can live out your life with the attitude that you are "just a woman", or you can turn that perspective around and become "a just woman". This is not a special category of uniquely gifted or inspired ladies. It is simply the woman whose heart is turned wholly toward God, the one who knows her own righteousness does not count. The Bible says the just shall live by faith... It's the key ingredient that makes all the difference in your life and mine. May we all diligently seek to acquire and exhibit the attributes of godliness and live in His righteousness alone!

Amen! I love this post, Mrs. Q! It was very encouraging, and you don't know how much I needed to hear this reminder again! :)ReplyDelete
Blessings to you and your beautiful family.
I'm so glad it was helpful ♥ReplyDelete
It's just a small thing, but I was reading this while my husband was cooking breakfast and it encouraged me to offer to cook instead. He seemed pretty happy that I offered (even though he doesn't complain about cooking; he has more of a servant heart than I).ReplyDelete
I copied this down by hand and made it the firsts page in my notebook. Thank you for this encouragement. It's a good "check list" for me to keep myself going in the right path.ReplyDelete
