Thankful to God also for those countless women who, despite being abused - physically, emotionally or sexually - neglected, bullied, rejected, disowned, abandoned, criticized, by their own mother, have grown to be mature, wise and godly women - who courageously break that evil, vicious cycle, forgive, love, encourage their own children and model for them the life of a true
Woman of Worth!
You’re a woman of worth
Loved perfectly by the Lord!
Be a woman of wisdom,
Your life fully based on His Word,
Be a woman of wealth,
As you store up eternal treasure!
Be a woman of warmth
Giving and loving
In bountiful measure.
In valleys, as a woman of weeping,
Discover His wellspring of joy;
With praises and singing and prayer
The works of the devil destroy.
Be a woman of wonder -
How God is working
In and through you!
Let your wisdom and wealth,
Bring glory to Him in all that you do.
Be a woman of worship,
He alone is worthy of praise!
In everything, giving thanks always,
Your voice of true freedom raise.
Let your sweet, winning smile,
Your warm, welcome heart
Show others what life’s all about!
Don’t be a woman of worries,
Or fears, frustrations and doubt.
It is through Christ
You CAN do all things,
His strength is yours
Each new day on this earth!
Let no one persuade you
To think otherwise!
You are a woman of worth!

“While [Jesus] was still talking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. Then one said to Him, ‘Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.’ But He answered and said to the one who told Him, ‘Who is My mother and who are My brothers?’ And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, ‘Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother’”
(Matthew 12:46-50 NKJV).
“One of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to [Jesus], ‘Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.’ But He said, ‘On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it’
(Luke 11:27,28 NASB).
