Ladies, we’ve done it, this is the last chapter of Feminine Appeal!
My favorite thing about this book? Listening to God, opening my heart to hearing His whispers and allowing Him to etch these principals on my heart.
My wish for you:
1~ May your character be transformed into a Titus 2 woman. May everything you do (Phil 2:14-16) make you “shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life”
2~ May you delight in loving your husbands; with a deep, phileo kind of love…and remember:
“He who grows in grace remembers that he is but dust, and he therefore does not expect his fellow Christians to be anything more. He overlooks ten thousand of their faults, because he knows his God overlooks twenty thousand in his own case. He does not expect perfection in the creature, and, therefore, he is not disappointed when he does not find it.” Charles Spurgeon
Remember, your husband was hand tailored, by God, just for you! Think on the good, the lovely, the beautiful things about your husband. May your love for your husband so fill up your reservoir that it spills out and overflows to your children, and all who know you.
3~ Pray for your children, love them, cherish them, shower them with well deserved praise. Remember, they are your heritage, your reward. Cultivate for them a tender love and kindness that will provide them with fertile soil in which to grow.
4~ May you be blessed with self control and discipline and may you remember that every step you take, your littles will walk behind you. We can not give our hearts to God and keep our bodies for ourselves.
5~ May you remember that God has designed our bodies to come together in our marriage bed as a gift, a blessing and a beautiful act that makes our bond stronger each time we are intimate. May your husband always be enraptured with your love.
Prov. 5:19 “As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and always be enraptured with her love”
6~ May you have a heart for your home and may it be a tapestry of beauty where one can’t help but think of God when they are there.
7~ I pray that you will cultivate a heart for kindness and gentleness. Isa 54:10 “For the mountains shall depart and the hills be moved; but My loving kindness shall not depart from you” May HIS loving kindness never depart from you and may you remember that in all of your dealings with others!
8~ May you be the kind of woman that stands up to the challenge to be the Godly, submissive, virtuous wife that God calls you to be. I pray that He always reveal His heart for you and that He find favor with you with each day to pass.
My last prayer for you is that your neighbors will respect you, trouble neglect you and the angels protect you.
This book has quickly become one of my favorites, right up there with Elizabeth George’s A Woman After God’s Own Heart! I know that I will read it again. I also think that sharing it with you has made it that much more special; solidifying many of the points in my mind and heart. I have thoroughly enjoyed digging into scripture and researching; that has been a blessing to me. Thank you for sticking with me. I hope my passion and love has shined through to each of you.
From my heart to yours, God Bless you,
