In a message my Bishop preached on Mothers Day, he made the statement that women are “confused” about who they are supposed to be.
This is true.
In light of my previous post called “Woman“, I thought this would be a good place to begin part two of my “Woman” series.
Who are we as Women?
Scott Brown answers this question quite simply in his book Feminine by Design. My sister and I read this book, and I believe that it is a great read for women of all ages. (An excellent teaching tool for young girls) Using much of God’s word he breaks down who we are supposed to be, as women, into the Twelve Pillars of Biblical Womanhood.
Here’s an excerpt from pillar 2:
“As a woman, your gender is one of the beautiful expressions of the wisdom of God. It is the glory of God to array creation with diversity of form and function. He has crafted you with distinguishing qualities across a wide spectrum of physical and emotional attributes. These qualities exert a remarkable beauty and power in the world.” (Pillar 2, A Woman Not A Man)
Once again the book is very helpful for women and fathers raising daughters. I urge you to get the book and read it for yourself, because it will definitely give you some insight on who you are supposed to be as a woman.
Thanks for reading! You can purchase Scott Brown’s book here or here.
Stay tuned for my next post in my series, Woman!
Have a great day!
Welcome back to MyTunes!
On Friday, when the Supreme Court made a very evil, and unconstitutional decision, I was disheartened. In an effort to take my mind off of the tragedy for a short while, I decided to listen to a song. It’s an old song called “You Are My Joy” by the Kenoly Brothers.
I’ll admit I shed a few tears, being that my emotions were running high. :roll: Regardless, I think it’s a very beautiful song and that it was sung wonderfully. Remember that the Lord is our joy and our strength. He’s our everything, and He’s in control no matter what man does.
You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.
(Isaiah 26:3-4 ESV)
On this Father’s Day in 2015, I want to tell you again how much I love and appreciate you. I look up to you more than you know.
The way you care for the well-being, safety and happiness of your family is a blessing. Your determination to provide is remarkable.
I love that you are a man of your word, and to the best of your human ability, when you say you are going to do something, for goodness sake’s you’re going to do it! And I love that about my father.
You’re a manly man and we can always count on you to keep us safe. Whether it be a strange noise outside or a spider, you’re always there to protect us. ;-)
You train and disciple us in the Word of the Lord, as you are commanded in Scripture. Your love for God is genuine and it saturates your everyday living as it should. I’m grateful for a godly father like no other.
I love you and I always will love you. Happy Father’s Day Pa. <3
From your eldest
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
(Ephesians 6:4 ESV)
