Many Christian girls who write blogs like to list husband requirements or encourage the Christian men they see around them. They say things like, “We need more men like you who devote their whole lives to God,” or “I’m glad there are young men like you for girls like us.” The question is, who is “us?” Are we the girls whose lives are completely devoted to God? Are we the ones who just really want to marry godly young men? What kind of attributes do we have?
In order for “us” to find the young men we are looking for, we have to be godly young women. We must go above and beyond cultural standards. We should be asking God to constantly refine us until we reflect Christ and no other. This process is not going to be easy, in fact, it’s going to be very hard. To push against the culture takes courage. To submit to God’s will takes humility. To get through this life takes perseverance.
Through the teaching I have received in young life, the lessons that I have learned, and the knowledge I have acquired, I hope to encourage young women like me. Girls who want to love Christ, stand out, and impact others. I definitely do not have all the answers, only God has those, but I have read the Bible and have many godly women in my life.
In the next weeks, I hope to cover topics which concern Biblical womanhood. These topics would include attitude, modesty, and character, as well as any other issues which concern young women.
