Yesterday, I said that my word for the year is GODLY. Uhm, I probably need to define this both for my readers and myself. According to www.thefreedictionary.com, godly is defined as 1) have a great reverence for God; pious and 2) divine. Now before I start, let me assure you I'm no where close to God, nor do I claim to be. Our pastor tells us that God is like a blacksmith and that He pounds on metal and burns it in fire until it has no flaws in it and all He can see is His own reflection. I believe our ultimate goal in this life is to be like Jesus. Yes, he created us all as unique individuals, but we are to love and treat others as He does.
While the bible is full or examples of godly women, there are two that I have chosen to model my life after: The Proverb 31 and the Titus 2 Woman. I know both these characters sparks different reactions to different people When I look at these two women I see who God wants me to be. These women, especially the Proverbs 31 woman can be VERY CONTROVERSIAL. And yes, if you just look at them with human eyes, there's no way you can stand up to that. But if you let God guide you, you can do anything! I'm never gonna be the perfect wife or mother, most of the time I can't even qualify as a good one. But I have hope that if I keep trusting God that I can be the wife to Bryan and the mama to Dalton and Bobbye Sue that He me to be.
