"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." Proverbs 31:30 (NIV)
International Women’s Day is observed annually on March 8, all around the World. It is a day to reflect on and celebrate the social, political, economic, and cultural accomplishments of women, and to bring awareness to the fight for gender equality. (Calendar, 2022)
When I read what IWD represents, I felt left out, because nothing was mentioned about Christian Women. Women of faith are some of the most pro-woman in society. We know first hand that GOD created US in His image to be more than mothers and wives but change agents too. When GOD created Eve he had all women in mind to reflect His change agent image.
A born-again Christian Woman does that very well. We know our place in the home and outside the home. Because our big sister Prophetess and judge Deborah made Bible history being one of the most influential women in the Bible. She was well known for her wisdom and courage. She is the only woman of the Old Testament who is known for her strong faith in GOD, and quick actions. Must I mention Deborah the prophet was not known or remembered because of her relationship to her husband or another man. Her legacy has her signature alone. ( Judges 4-5:31)
So, stand up bold, courageous, intelligent, and strong, Christian Women and push your Faith-based Initiative and more for the world to celebrate too. Hopefully, the IWD will include Women of Faith in its mission description. When we push to be included we honor GOD first, and we honor his Christian daughters from all nations around the world.
the good news is no matter what you look like, where you are from, how much money you have, a Christian woman's commitment and relationship to the Lord is what truly matters in life.
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Thank you that every day is International Women’s Day in your divine eyesight. -Amen, in JESUS’ Matchless name.
