If you are a Woman of God, the Bible is very clear about the type of woman to which you should aspire.  I should think that every man on the planet would be trying to find one of these, but sadly they are not.

To become such a woman would not be a simple task, but I have known many in my life – elderly women who have let the fires of life shape them and burn away impurities, and who have embraced the love of Christ so completely that He is reflected in all they do.

Are you a WOG?

I Peter 3:3 – 6 describes such a woman. “Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening.”

Proverbs 3:15 “She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.”

Proverbs 12:4 “An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.”

Proverbs 19:14 “House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.”

Proverbs 31:10 “An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar.”

Proverbs 31:20 “She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.”

Proverbs 31:30 “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

I Timothy 2:9 – 10 “Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
