So, I know I've been a pretty bad tomboy most of my life. Jeans with holes, baggy t-shirts, and an unkempt ponytail were part of the everyday wardrobe. If someone told me I couldn't something because I was a girl, I'd jump in and prove them wrong. But now that I'm older, God has shown me that being a woman is an important job, not one to be taken lightly. We are to be feminine, virtuous; radiating Christ's love from our very being. God created man first. Sorry, girls, but it's true. And He also used these exact words, "Man shall rule over you."
Oooh, scary, huh? Not really. God created man and women for their own purposes. It's not a manner of being able to do it. It's what God wants us to do. Come on, being a girl isn't that bad. In fact, it is wonderful. We are to be kind, compassionate, loving, feminine; carrying ourselves with grace and joy, spreading Christ's love as we go. Home and children should be part of our life, making our household a joyful, warm place to be, as we love our husbands and raise our children to be soldiers, wether it be for our nation, or for our Lord. If God calls you to have a career, then please do have one. But I sincerely doubt He'd call you to a career if you've a family to care for. Being a mother and wife is all I ever hope to be, and I pray God will grant that, if it's His will. Little hands clinging to you, sticky kisses on you cheeks, and the security of a loving husband. What more could a woman ask for? God has a purpose for each person, man or woman, and each purpose is different, but God never changes. Woman are made for home and hearth. That's the best way I can put it. And it's a joy to be God's girl!
1 Timothy 5:14
"I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully."
"A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones."
1 Corinthians 11:11-12
"Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman with the man, in the Lord.
For as the woman is of man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God."
Rejoice, girls. Being a woman is beautiful.
