Be a godly woman

By Alma “Namene” Amunyela  /

There’s nothing else that beats a woman who lives a godly life. Leading a quiet and peaceable life of godliness and reverence has more benefit than you may have imagined.

By godly woman, I mean someone who is attracted to godly things. By godly things I mean those things which are associated with God.

To be a godly woman, you must exercise yourself towards godliness. You know that bodily exercise profits a little but godliness is profitable for all things spiritual.

The fruits of your spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. And these are the things which are associated with womanhood. You’re not woman enough if you lack some of these fruits.

If you want to be a godly woman, let everything be done with a view to the building up of your faith and character. You know that the meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord (Isaiah 29:19).

And remember that a wise woman builds her home (Proverbs 14:1).

You must always stay in the path of God’s Word and don’t let the things of this world to influence you. You must hold on to the truth, becoming more and more in every way like Christ.

Once you decided to be that woman you would be sweet, submissive and trusting of all of God’s righteous decrees for you to know that you’re free indeed of the world’s worries!

Remember a noble woman examines scripture, and ponders on the word. She meditates on it day and night. The joy of the Lord is her strength.

A godly woman does nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather in humility she values all things good.

One thing is that you must forget what is behind, and rather start straining towards what is ahead. Just press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called you to do on earth through Christ Jesus.

The noble and dignified woman keeps her mind on what is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, and whatever is pure.

Blessed is the woman who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished (Luke 1:45).
