A Heart of Goodness

goodnessWhat is at the heart of a godly woman? It’s a heart of goodness that gives to others. As a woman, you know all about giving. You give as a woman, as a wife, as a mother. And that’s exactly what God planned. You are meant to give and to do good and to operate out of a good heart. The goodness you receive from God is a treasure for you to share with others. Don’t hold back when you have the chance to be gracious and generous.

All you have is today. So this is the day that counts for pursuing goodness and for dispensing it to others. Make this little poem your prayer: “This is the wish I always wish, the prayer I always pray; Lord, may my life help other lives it touches by the way.”

God of goodness, let Your love and kindness flow through me.
Guide my words and my first impulses so I am quick to offer help, encouragement,
and Your wisdom to the people in my life.
Show me the needs and hurts of others so I can personally share Your endless goodness with them. Amen.

Drawn from A Woman’s Daily Walk with God, a devotional filled with practical wisdom and encouragement, sure to bring direction and stability to your day. These daily reminders will help you draw near to the Lord so that you find the strength, peace, and confidence you need for both the everyday moments and bigger challenges of life.

Here’s a partial description of God’s approved wardrobe.
