Purpose of motherhood

The Purpose of Motherhood

Let´s start with womanhood okay? What is a godly woman and what is she before marriage and children?

Womanhood

She is a woman who loves God with all her heart, mind, and soul (Matthew 22: 37-38). She is a woman who loves people, especially the ones that are closest to her (Matthew 22:39).

She has and continues to seek His kingdom and lives a lifestyle of righteousness. She doesn’t worry about her future because God will provide everything she needs (Matthew 6:33). She has full confidence in Him,  she is led by the Holy Spirit, and commits all her work to the Lord (Proverbs 16:3).

She recognizes God’s voice because she has an active relationship with God. She prays for guidance and direction. She finds her worth, her identity, and confidence in Him. She’s not easily influenced by the world because she knows that she only needs to please God.

Even if you have not done all these things you should know that as you are maturing as a woman you can also mature as a spiritual woman by learning what God has in store for you next.

Ask God to prepare you for the next season in your life by helping you focus on what you need to do now. For some women God has planned marriage, for others it’s a career, for others it’s to care for someone, whatever direction He takes you to, know that he wants you to be prepared.

Womanhood

Use your womanhood to learn qualities and skills and to master the ones you enjoy. Study women of the Bible especially the ones that were not married at the time they are mention (Ruth, Esther, Mary etc). What inner qualities did these women have? What can you learn from these women’s stories? Pray to God to help you understand what womanhood is and how you can use your womanhood to glorify Him. Don’t waste your womanhood on what the world thinks a woman should be. First of all you don’t belong to this world. This world belongs to you. You tell the world what womanhood is about. Reinvent the wheel. Listen to what God tells YOU. And take action.

God searches our hearts and he checks our desires, characteristics, faith, and trust (Jeremiah 17:10). Pray that your desires and needs are parallel to the purpose He has for you (Psalm 139:24). He made us all unique and each to our own (Romans 8:28). He gave us specific desires that will help Him fulfill His purpose. He gave us fire and passion to certain things that only we with that fire can fulfill with God.

So, I’ve compiled a list of inner and physical attributes for you to read and pick. As you are reading each attribute notice inside of you, which one brings you fire? Which one moves you in the slightest way? Which one makes you excited? Do that one first. Once you have mastered that skill move on to the next and before you know it you will have built godly characteristic traits that will help you fulfill God’s purpose.

Noble Character qualities in no specific order (there are more inner qualities than these, this is just to give you an idea): Use your womanhood to develop a noble character as well as physical skills. Start learning and applying them. Use your womanhood to glorify God.
