A Godly Woman
by Emily Barnes, The Spirit of Loveliness
A godly woman is one who possesses inner peace and tranquility; she doesn’t have to prove herself to anyone. She is strong and yet she doesn’t use her strength to control or dominate people; neither does she depend on recognition from others.
Hers is an inner contentment and satisfaction based not on accomplishments, position, or authority, but on a deep awareness of God’s eternal and personal love for her. That kind of inner peace, strength, confidence and tranquility comes from depending on God, obeying Him, drawing on His strength and wisdom, learning to be like Him.
When this happens in our lives, we gradually grow free of anxious competitiveness and aggressiveness. We have no need to prove our worth and value because we know how much we are worth in God’s sight. And then we are free to reach out in love to others.
