If you are a woman...

...and you never read another thing, read this:

God's View of a Woman

It was like a healing balm to my soul, touching me in my deepest places. Truly, my Savior does really love me. He doesn't love me any less for my gender. I am not "less than" in His eyes:

But beyond all these wonderful things that the Lord did in showing us how beautiful women are in His eyes, He did something else. He chose you--a woman to depict that which He came to earth to die for--His very Bride. And He is not ashamed.


Sisters, you are fellow heirs in the Kingdom of God. You are fellow priests in the church of God. You are honored. You are cherished. You are valuable. You are needed.

You are His friends, His followers, His daughters, yea, His own kin.

Updated to clarify:

Someone said the equivalent of, "Well, duh! This is news to you? It took that article to convince you that God loves you?"

Well, no, not really. But given the many clamoring voices today that claim that women are not created in the image of God, that only males can be fully Christ-like, that most of the Bible was written to men only, and other equally disturbing messages --- well, it's hard not to feel beaten down at times, and full of doubts. My head may know one thing, but it is good to have the glorious message of God's unqualified love for women penetrate into the deep recesses of my heart as well.

  1. "Sisters, take your high place. This is God's view of a woman."

    That is powerful, precisely because it is the Truth. Thanks Rebecca, for bringing this to our attention.
