Be a good Godly Woman

all seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13
"Father, there is none like you. I am in awe at the realization of how much you love me. Thank you for the revealing your heart to me. Thank you for breaking the bondage of perfection that once held me captive. You are a loving and just God and I am so thankful for that. I ask that you continue to speak to me and reveal my own heart to me. I ask that you stir up the gifts that you have placed within me so that I may walk in them. I also ask that you show me the talents you desire for me to use to glorify your name. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen."

When we are getting close with someone, it will make us know more and more about what he likes and what he hate. I have a best friend. We have been become a best friend for twelve years. Without asking, I know whether she is okay or not. Without guessing, I know whether she will agree with one plan or not. This is a special ability for us who has a close relationship with someone together for several years. This will happen too if we are close with God. When we become His best friend and keep communicating with Him, we could feel it. We will know which one He likes. We will know His reasons of rejection. Without doubting Him, we will know that everything He does is because He loves us.

It is important that we don't compare ourselves to other women because we will fall to a judgment. Woman sometimes can’t resist to her emotion and start comparing self to others in a negative ways. What will happen is we will run for a good position and chase it with our fake heart. Not because we want to get close to God, to be what He want, but to win the position as God’s number one. Meanwhile, we all know that God doesn’t like arrogant people. So, in my opinion, we do not need to compares our selves to others, just do our part and let God do the rest.

One scripture that gives an example of God restoring someone is the verses that Mr. Sexy always tell me about How God teach Peter about love in John 21.

Jhn 21:15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
Jhn 21:16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
Jhn 21:17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.
Jhn 21:18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”
Jhn 21:19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”
Jhn 21:20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”)
Jhn 21:21 When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”
Jhn 21:22 Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”
Jhn 21:23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”
Jhn 21:24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
Jhn 21:25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

Right now I want to learn about God’s will. I prayed last night. I asked God to guide me again just like I used to. I confess my sin and I want him again in my life. I asked for forgiveness for my entire stupid mistake. I want to grow deep in Him. I want to be a Godly woman just like what He asks me to be.
