The Glory Of Womanhood

Look at these passages of scripture with me:

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them…..And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.” Genesis 1:27;21-22

   Women are a beautiful handiwork of God our creator. He carefully thought us out! Have you thought about everything our bodies do? It is amazing. We were God’s last finishing touch to the earth. He saved the best for last. 😉 Okay well lets not go that far. Haha A woman was the first to sin. 

We were created feminine. We did not just become feminine because someone told us to wear dresses and gave us dolls to play with. God created us to be feminine creatures. Many argue that the only deference between women and men are our bodies, but scripture differs. Genesis says God created male and female, we women are innately feminine. Femininity is God’s gift to us. Be thankful for and do not try to change it! 

 We are called by God to be a help meet. 

“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” Genesis 2:18

That is why God created Eve for Adam. She was created to be a helper to Adam suited for him. 

We are to show femininity in ways such as:

  • Submit-We are to be submissive to our husband.      

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husband, as unto the Lord.” Ephesians 5:22

But listen, SINGLE ladies, it won’t hurt to start early. Be submissive to men in any relationship now (such as your dad, grandfather ect.). That does NOT mean to be used and abused. No, simply respect and try to understand you fatherly figures now. This does not mean that we allow them to pull us away from God and let them try to influence you into sin. We are simply inclined to affirm the leadership and initiative of the men around us. In all of our relationships we should be making room for godly men to practice servant leadership. What matters most is that you single ladies are cultivating the habit of making room for the leadership of the men in your life. Let the fatherly figure  know that you are submitting to them, such as asking them for advice or seek their counsel before you make a decision. We have to resist the urge to talk about them with friend about their actions or publicly questioning their actions. This brings them down and makes them think you do not respect them. We are to be humble in the way we speak and act. We are not to be loud, judgmental or gossiping women. This makes men back off, but most of all displeases God. Be careful to guard you heart and not listen to the cultures way of how women should act or think about men, it all messes with our perspective of how we should view their leadership. 

Now, married women. Your job is to submit to your husband. Try to best serve HIM, not yourself! If you are doing something ask yourself, does this help my husband? You will then find your answer if you need to complete this task first or do whatever you might be questioning. God made YOU to serve your husband! Just like God made men to serve and provide for his family. God did not make us as humans to serve ourselves. Would you like to know the two purposes God made us?

  1. For His pleasure!
  2. For His Glory!

If this bothers you maybe you should examine your relationship with Him! 

  • Nurturing- We should LOVE children and want to care and nurture them. In this society, women want to go to college (this is not a bad thing, but do not let it get in front of getting married and having children), have a career or not to have kids (yes some people plan not to have kids! :o). If you aren’t married babysitting or caring for children in general shows your femininity. If you do have children we should delight in our children and want to care and nurture them, not going to parties ect. This will please you husband and the LORD. 
  • A love for the HOME- We should want to have a home and care for a house and family! It is my hearts desire! Single women- help your mother (if you live at home or care for your house or apt. like this) around the house with dishes, cooking and cleaning, this shows your love for the home. Caring for your home, married ladies, shows your husband that you love your home that HE provided and also love him. Yes, keeping the house clean is a big thing for men. lol 

Ladies, we have a VERY special role, so view it as so! Don’t dread it or complain about it, Love, God, love your husband and love your life, that is all it takes. Stay positive!

Now what are you doing? Get off your bum and go care for your home! 😉
