5 Godly Habits of Reverent Women
What is prayer to you? There are so many beautiful ways to capture what prayer means. And yet, it’s such a personal expression. That being said, this is one of my favorite definitions:
Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God.Catechism of the Catholic Church
Pro tip: I love the idea of prayer being the bookends to your day. If you start you day in prayer and end it in prayer – what could possibly go wrong in between. Check out this prayer book by Stormie Omartian, it is one of my favorites.
We are the face of Christ on Earth. And if we stick to that train of thought, we put serving God above everything else, live a Christ-centered life and raise the bar on what we find to be acceptable day to day.
Of course, this kind of lifestyle impacts a flurry of other choices we make along the course of our daily life. We begin to develop a more Godly-type of discriminating taste about the most simple life choices – from what we watch to what we listen to and everything in between.
Pro tip: When in doubt – WWJD it! Ask yourself, “what would Jesus do”?
To live His Word and be a strong Godly woman, it’s important to start at the very beginning, with the Holy Bible.
Engross yourself and understand it’s lyrical significance so to apply it to our daily life. Not the easiest of tasks is why there is always the option to join Bible study classes.
Last year I took my first Bible study and it was a game-changer: the “Fulfilled” series by Sonja Corbitt, a gifted and relatable speaker. Click here to check it out.
Pro tip: Full transparency. I’m not a fan of a sola scriptura approach to life – a controversial topic, which essentially translates to Bible scriptures as the only source of faith. I feel that it is somewhat limiting and pushes aside sacred traditions. And as a Catholic I believe in two sources of revelation feeding into one deposit of faith.
We have a tendency to want to over-complicate simple matters.
Attitude as a perspective. Gratitude is sheer thankfulness. And together we have the most dynamic direction to a life of happiness, productivity and success.
In short, strong Godly women develop a daily dependence on God and welcome poverty of spirit, true secret to happiness.
Pro tip: Being poor of spirit means to rely solely on the graces of God. Is why we hear so often, “the poor will inherent the earth.” It’s not about monetary possessions or the lack there of. It’s about understanding that we depend on Him 100% to get through life.
Now, this is a tough one. It’s easier said than done. Above all, giving it up to God and walking away takes practice.
Start small and speak it out loud. Tell God: “I leave (—–) at the foot of your Cross my loving Father. You know what is in my heart. You know what is best. I trust in You completely and walk away knowing it’s in Your hands.”
And then, my friend, walk away. Don’t give that (—– ) further thought.
Sometimes it’s easy to think that He doesn’t hear us. He does. We are all God’s children. And He is a loving Father who sometimes has to say no. It’s basic parenting 101.
Pro tip: There is plenty of science out there that corroborates “speaking thoughts into existence.” Does that mean you can conjur up winning the lotto? Nope. Reading, thought, and speech engage different parts of the brain, regions that ultimately operate together. I’m not a scientistic, but even I know that I believe what I hear my own voice say.
It’s no mystery that Godly women are steadfast in their spiritual journey. Perfect practice makes for perfect. Similarly, it takes 21 days to build a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle. You’ve got this!
