An Encouraging Reminder to All Women

What should all women aspire to be? Being a wife and mother is a good and noble thing, but it is not the highest thing

Instead, ALL women should aspire to present themselves a living sacrifice to the Lord. God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him and His will for our lives. This is why some marry, some stay single, some have children, and some are barren. Glorify God in your present circumstance (the one you are in right now). The one who loves the Lord with her whole heart, soul, and mind—she is the one who pleases God and whose life brings glory to God. This is the good news– that no matter who you are, what you’re doing, or where you’re at—that your love for God and your faith in the work of His son Jesus Christ pleases Him.

Paraphrased from a quote by Amy Scott

I will glory in my Redeemer
Whose priceless blood has ransomed me
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails
And hung Him on that judgment tree

I will glory in my Redeemer
Who crushed the power of sin and death
My only Savior before the Holy Judge
The Lamb Who is my righteousness

I will glory in my Redeemer
My life He bought, my love He owns
I have no longings for another
I’m satisfied in Him alone

I agree. Though I am a mother and wife, that is not why I was born.

I was created to be the Bride of Christ.

My self-esteem, my meaning is life is not what I do, or who I am. It's WHO HE IS and WHO I AM IN HIM.
