I keep seeing people post about International Women’s Day, and there are plenty of women I admire in my life about whom I could write. Today though I want to ponder who God made women to be. Several years ago I made a list of the woman I wanted to be.
I put on attributes such as trusts God, loves, hospitable, listens, patient, joyful, and dresses modestly. Making the list was a form of worship for me because it was a recognition of the woman God made me to be. It was also a challenge to live up to that standard.
This International Women’s Day I dug that list back out and hung it on my wall again as a reminder to be a woman who seeks to be a Godly woman. I’m also hanging it there as a reminder to encourage and be thankful for the attributes I see in other women. Without other Godly women in my life, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today.
