There are seven essential goals to which a Godly woman aspires.
A Godly Woman is a woman who seeks to know, love and serve God, to live joyfully and in abundant grace and strength. There are seven essential goals to which a Godly Woman aspires:
1. Know that God is Love and Mirror that Love to Others.
2. Set Priorities
3. Trust God, His Timing and His Wisdom
5. Chooses Words Carefully
6. Let Go
7. Be a Daughter of the King
The first goal of a Godly Woman: know that God is Love and mirror that Love to others
To be “godly” doesn’t mean to aspire to be a “God” but, rather, to act in a way that reflects God’s love. God’s love is often called “Agape Love.” It is completely selfless and cannot be earned, bought, traded, or sold. Agape love is unconditional love.
The second goal of a Godly Woman: set priorities
We know that we ought to find time for God, but few of us take the time to make a goal of setting the right priorities. We juggle, we fret, we get into a groove and we coast, all the while wanting, needing, and understanding how important our relationship with God is and that it should be our first priority. A Godly woman puts God “on her calendar” before any other commitments.
The third goal of a Godly Woman: trust in God, His timing and His Wisdom
Fear is the opposite of trust. It is a four-letter word and has no real place in a Christian’s vocabulary because of its implication of one’s lack of trust in God. Fear is a four letter word that creates an atmosphere where evil lives—another four letter word!
The only way to combat fear is to make a conscientious point of trusting God. Trusting God is being able to say, “I live to love, honor, and serve Him and all that He has in store for me is completely right for me.”
Trust allows us to release feelings of jealousy, anxiety, rage, or hurt. Trust translates into the realization that God’s plan is far superior than anything we could come up with on our own.
