Snapshots of God's Woman

What does a woman after God’s heart look like?
These are a collection of personal thoughts I have been thinking lately.  If I truly want to be called a woman after God's heart in the same way that David was called a man after God's heart, then what is a snapshot of that woman? 

  • This woman would rather get lost in the Word of God than lose time on entertainment.
  • Her gratefulness to her mighty Savior is so great that she seizes every opportunity to deny self and bless others, simply because it brings joy and glory to Him.
  • She is so in love with Christ that she forgets herself.
  • She knows what she believes and can clearly communicate those beliefs with conviction and assurance from the Holy Spirit. 
  • She fails (and perhaps epically), but she makes it right before God and man. 
  • When she is shaken, Christ overflows.  When she is pricked, she bleeds Christ.  {Inspiration here}
  • She enjoys, delights, and takes pleasure in the heart of God more than anything else the world has to offer.  Because of this, she trusts Him implicitly.

  1. Inspiring, convicting, and so encouraging! Wonderful thoughts Lo.

  2. It’s a continual battle to be a godly woman and I’m happy and thankful I’m in the war. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Lots to aspire to as a "woman after God's own heart," but I am thankful He provides the power and grace to live every day for Him! Pretty cool! :)

  4. Lauren! This is what I've been wondering for some time also! I've wanted to know what a woman after God's own heart looks like - or how I can be, like Abraham, God's friend! I'm SO happy that you wrote out this list. It spoke to me. Great post.
