A woman of God
That is what I want to be – pure, virtuous, holy
Pleasing in your sight, my God
A woman after Your heart
One who obeys Your voice
Able to discern what pleases You most.
Dearest Lord, give me a heart
That yearns and seeks to do Your will
A woman of God – that is what I want to be
I think of my sisters in the world on this day
A day set aside to celebrate womanhood
Young or old, beautiful or plain
What does it matter?
Women are not just weak or strong, haughty or little in God’s eyes
We are mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, friends and more
Made in the image and likeness of God
Indeed, the world would be a poor place if we were not here
And so let us celebrate womanhood today and everyday.
Happy International Women’s Day!
