The Remarkable Purpose of Being a Godly Woman…& a Link Up!
Have you ever wondered what your purpose is as a Godly woman? I know I’ve had that thought more than a few times in my life, especially when my life’s circumstances are difficult. It’s certainly easy in today’s culture to get our viewpoint of Biblical womanhood all wrong, or worse yet, we know what it means to be a Godly woman but we feel like we don’t measure up to that standard. (sigh!)
You may know that I’ll be speaking to a group of women soon, but what you don’t know is what I’m speaking on.
When I asked the Pastor’s wife what the topic was, she said, “Women of the Bible.”
I thought, “Wow, that’s just perfect seeing how I wrote about some wives of the Bible not too long ago!” I just love it how the Lord works in our lives!
Then I found out that I was the first speaker in the series, so I suggested we start off with the teaching of Eve seeing how that’s where the problems all started.
Like most Christian women, we’ve read Eve’s story and we KNOW her act of disobedience caused the Fall of all mankind. But through my studies of her life the Lord revealed to me a much deeper and greater understanding of this woman. She’s extremely relatable, (just so you know, I didn’t always hold that viewpoint of her) and her story is so much like mine and I’m sure, much like yours. I found Eve’s life to be one of remarkable purpose.
And that’s when the Lord showed me and told me….
“All of my daughters have remarkable purpose.”
“Teach them this message, He said.”
I’d love to share this message with you because I believe it will minister to you and encourage you in your journey as a Christian woman no matter where you are at in your walk. By the way, this message is geared for all women, not just wives.
And here’s the exciting thing that God is doing in this ministry…
The church that I’ll be speaking at is streaming my teaching live over the internet! If you’d like to listen in you can do so here on Tuesday, March 12th at 7:00 p.m. (PST). So mark your calendars!
If you can’t catch the message live, it will be archived so you can listen to it at a later date.
Live a poured out life for Christ,

Now bloggers, it’s time to link up your posts!
I’m looking for posts on any and all things related to being a wife, i.e. homemaking ideas, ways you minister to your husband, dating ideas, and/or hearing what the Lord is telling you about your most important earthly relationship!

I would love to read what you said about Eve. I imagine that God was not surprised – after all, He gave us choice, He gave us the tree, He gave us curiosity – and then he said, “Don’t. . . .” Oh – there is so much to discuss in the Eve story – that would be a great linky prompt!
You are so right…I don’t believe that God was surprised either, just like you said!
Jolene, I’m marking my calendar to listen!!
So glad it will be archived! I’d love to see you live, but I have barbershop rehearsal. Prayers going up for you and an awesome time of sharing the Lord’s Word.
Thanks Pearl! I’ll get the video uploaded soon!
Hi Jolene, I am in love with your posts. I came across your post about how to become a Godly women, when you listed a bunch of books. Thanks so much I’m definitely subscribing to get your posts! I wanted to ask, ive been married for 4 years and we have had A LOT of issues were working through them but its been mostly me. I’m looking for a book to be encouraged by or just to help me move beyond the issues I’ve had a part in. I’ve was unfaithful emotional with another guy, and had a really bad habit on lying. Now I’ve realized I had a problem, I just maybe need some encouragement on how to develop trust again with my husband. I would love to hear what your thoughts are and hear any suggestions. Your such a great women and I that God I came across your blog!
So glad to have you here at The Alabaster Jar! Unfortunately I can’t think of any books for your specific situation, other than reading the Bible, of course! Just surrendering your heart to living a life pleasing to the Lord will cause the transformation to take place in your heart. And when your heart is transformed, your actions will follow. Your husband will see that your actions and attitudes are different and that’s what’s going to cause him to trust you. All of this will take time and a submission will to the to the Lord. You and your husband will need patience in this journey. Grace is another big thing that will be needed. Keep in mind that the lying thing is probably a pride issue. That’s usually why one lies. We do so to cover our sins, our imperfections, failures, and shortcomings. It’s always, always, always better for others to see the real you even if the real you falls short (like we all do!) rather than seeing a woman being deceitful. I hope this helps, friend! Stay the narrow course of following the Lord no matter how difficult life becomes!
What a beautiful thought! My daughters have remarkable purpose. I’m excited to see what you have to say about Eve!
It was a great study! I was shocked to see how much there was to learn about her. I’ll upload the video soon!
