As women, we all deserve to live the fairytale that is in our minds. Each fantasy is unique to every woman.
Whatever it may be, we deserve to have exactly what we want to have.
If you want a Godly husband-you deserve that. And you don't have to settle for anything less. So don't.
If you want to have obedient children, you deserve that. So help them. Teach them.
If you want to have nice things so that you can be a testimony of God to others, you deserve that. Take the steps that are necessary to make sure it happens the right way.
And then God will bless you further for it.
But bear in mind that just because you have all that you want or someday you achieve all that you want to achieve, it still will not always be picture perfect.
It still will not always be easy.
It doesn't mean that it's not important or that it's not worth it. Because it most definitely is. But anything that you want (and deserve) takes work. You have to be willing to put in the work.
Sure, there will be times that you say and do things you are not proud of.
There will be times when you are ashamed at the way you behaved as a mother.
There will be times when you are holding a crying baby in one arm, standing in your garage in the middle of town screaming at your husband at the top of your lungs over something silly for no good reason.
Just sayin.
But there will also be times of great reward and great pride in the things that you desired, prayed about and now have come to pass in your life.
When you set out to be a Godly woman, a woman of prayer and virtue and strength-you will see great things happen in your life.
Women of virtue who desire God do not look the same. They do not speak the same. They do not desire the same things that women of the world desire. They want a future and a hope that is centered around Christ. They want only what He wants to give them for serving Him. And they accept those things as great, bountiful, wonderful blessings.

Women who desire God desire to achieve different things. They desire to be pleasing to the Lord and also to those around her. Women who are seeking God and great things accomplish both. Where they seek Him, He is.
What they desire, they accomplish.

What are you seeking today?
What are you desiring for yourself, your future, and your life?

"Create in me a new heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me."
Psalms 51:10
