Women of God can excel in the modern world in everything, ministry, education, military, entrepreneurship, health care, engineering, law, you name it!
However, I still believe family is our first ministry, service!
I believe that in every job position you can be replaced, except the important role of as a Godly, dedicated, caring woman, who has the role as a mother and as a wife in her home. Even sisters, like myself who aren’t yet married or don’t have children yet, have an important role in the family, we have a blessed future ahead and the responsibility to raise up a God fearing, empowered, righteous younger generation.
Anyone who is fertile can reproduce and bring children to the world. Anyone can get married or have a ring on their finger, but there is a big difference between a dedicated Godly woman and a worldly one.
Hollywood exalts shallow naked women without values and principles. Heaven honors beautiful God fearing women who prioritize and protect their loved ones.
“…a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” (Proverbs 31)
“Children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward” (Psalms 127:3)
"The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the LORD." (Proverbs 18:22)
“An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who shames him is as rottenness in his bones.” (Proverbs 12:4)
One of my first jobs in Israel as a new immigrant was educating about diamonds and selling diamonds. The process of making diamonds is so interesting. Simply put, diamond formation occurs when carbon deposits deep within the earth (approximately 90 to 125 miles below the surface) are subject to high temperature and pressure. Then there is the process of diamond cutting, polishing etc...
Similarly, in our lives. God uses fire to refine, and over time, great pressure produces valuable diamonds.
GOD WANTS TO MAKE DIAMONDS OUT OF OUR LIVES!!!
Life’s pressures can transform us into diamonds.
“… to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” Isaiah 61:3 (NIV)
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." (Deuteronomy 6:5; Leviticus 19:18; Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27)
Serve Him with everything and nothing less.
Important things to remember:
“Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you. Don’t waste your pain; use it to help others”
“Other people are going to find healing in your wounds. Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts.”
“If not to God, you will surrender to the opinions or expectations of others, to money, to resentment, to fear, or to YOUR OWN pride, lusts, or ego. You were designed to WORSHIP G-d and if you fail to worship HIM, you will create other things (idols) to give your life to. You are free to choose, what you surrender to but you are not free from the consequence of that choice.”
“You weren't put on earth to be remembered. You were put here to PREPARE FOR ETERNITY.”
“The only really happy people are those who have learned how to serve.”
“You cannot fulfil God's purposes for your life while focusing on your own plans.”
“Measured against eternity, our time on earth is just a blink of an eye, but the consequences of it will last FOREVER.”
"I have been crucified with Messiah, and it is no longer I who live, but Messiah lives in me. And the life I now live in the body, I live by trusting in the Son of God, (Ben-Elohim)—who loved me and gave Himself up for me." Galatians 2:19-21
