Mary's cousin Elizabeth was a good woman in the Bible.

I know this isn't a specific woman in the Bible...but I love to read about the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31...so much can be learned from these verses.

Psalm 63: 8 My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You, Your right hand upholds me.

Wow! I never thought about Hagar from the angle I read about her in today. This past Sunday our Pastor used Abraham and Sarah's impatience as part of his message and it included Hagar of course. It wasn't till then and what I read today that I thought about things from the way of how the culture worked back then. We read about how Hagar was the surrogate but not about how she really had no choice as she was a slave without say in the matter. Then she gets booted out by Sarah with her young son who is going to die in the desert if it weren't for God hearing her and Ishmael's cries. Such deep messages in the Word!

Right now Queen Esther.
I love that story. It was a favorite with my kids growing up as well.
She was willing to take a risk.
She was beautiful.
She was as faithful as she could be in a difficult place
I named my kitten after her!

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR

Sarai (meaning 'contentious') was Abraham's wife (Genesis 16:1), until God changed her name to 'Sarah' (meaning 'princess') . (Genesis 17:15)

Beautiful!

Thank you, Sunny! The first one in the book was Eve which makes sense! The next woman I will read about and reflect on is Sarah. So interesting and so much to learn!

You will enjoy it. I have done several studies on Women of the Bible and it seems I learn something new every time.

I have not yet read the Bible all the way through but am working on it. I therefore do not know all the different women to choose from! I was given a book from a friend when she learned I had re-committed to the Lord and it is called "Women of the Bible - 52 Stories for Prayer and Reflection" by Ann Spangler. This question reminded me of the book and I will be reading it to learn more! Thank you!

Mine is Martha's sister, Mary. It seems she wasn't too keen on housework either...hehe...but she loved to sit at the feet of our Lord and listen and learn from Him. That is where I wish to be. (And I am not the good housewife...sigh! Wish I were.)

God will make a way, where there seems to be no way...

Lydia was a poor outsider and possibly even a slave. She was a Gentile who chose to follow God, despite the fact that Jewish Law forbid her conversion. It is even suggested that she was referred to in Philipians 1:5 as "because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day". Lydia was a women after God's own heart. She was also a woman of prayer and I loved that. Acts 16:13-15.
