QUOTES: Godly Women

A true woman is willing, serious, and determined to reflect the beauty and heart of Christ to her world.  She seeks to live a God-centred life, trusting Him and saying “Yes, Lord!”  She knows this is only possibly by His grace, and seeks to do so always.

When a woman veils her body in modest clothing, she is not hiding herself from men. On the contrary, she is revealing her dignity to them.

Strong, beautiful femininity is part of our heritage as women. When we make the effort to cultivate such gentle strength, we not only enrich our own lives and make life a little better for those we encounter; we also pass on the spirit of femininity to the next generation.

Virtue becomes a garden from which other desirable qualities bloom and grow.  Virtue is not trying to be like someone else, but it is allowing the indwelling Christ to take control and make us like Him from the inside.  

A true woman of God will spend her life serving God with every aspect of her being, glorifying Him by following His pattern for the family.  A woman who is willing to lay down her life for others will devote her life to her family - to her husband and children.

The virtues we learn by being good daughters to our fathers on earth help us in being good daughters to the King, preparing us for this life and the life to come.  Being protected by our fathers teaches us how to be protected, loved and cherished and teaches the responsibilities that go with this blessing - how to be faithful, how to be trusting, and how to have a yielded heart.

A true woman will be known for her practice of studying God’s Word with the intent of being edified, challenged and sanctified.

A good wife can make her husband successful.

Our battlefield as women is being faithful to fulfill the calling Jesus Christ has given us.

A real woman is a woman who recognizes that she has been exquisitely and perfectly created by a loving God for a unique purpose.  Out of genuine gratitude, awe and a desire to please her Maker, a real woman joyfully embraces her femininity and submits every aspect of her identity to God’s original and unique design for her as a woman.  A real woman wants to bring glory to God by being a woman.

It should be every girl’s aim to possess in her character all the capacity of womanhood and to not only do the work the Lord has called us to do as women, but to embrace and delight in that work.

As a woman of godliness, we have the wonderful opportunity to let our lives sparkle with God's love–if we let Him. Almighty God is our Guide and Shepherd and will give us the spirit of godliness to complete the spirit of loveliness in our lives!

A godly, humble woman actively seeks to discover areas of her life she can change and repent from.  Moving ever higher in godliness is her goal.

It’s not your family that can satisfy you. God is the only one who can satisfy the deepest needs and longings of your heart. But if you want to be a truly fulfilled, happy woman—if God has called you to be a wife and mother—your greatest fulfillment will come through filling the role that God created for you.

The spirit of godly womanhood is present in the woman who, with courage and fortitude, perseveres through the many challenges of life. She realizes that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen," and consequently strives for the principled course of action.

Every woman, whether rich or poor, married or single, has a circle of influence within which, according to her character, she is exerting a certain power for good or harm. Every woman, by her virtue or her vice, by her folly or her wisdom, by her levity or her dignity, is adding something to our national elevation or degredation. Whatever breaks down the modest reserve, the domestic virtues, or the persuasive gentleness of woman is an injury to the community.

    As a wife and mother of six, one being a girl, it has always been my goal to raise my children up under the word so that they dont stray from it. But as godly woman we need to be reminded just how important our love for Christ, our faithfulNess to god is important and does matter and makes what we do and teach very vital to our families walk with the lord. So thank you. Sisters in Christ need to encourage each other.
