What is a Strong Woman?

July 12,2012

A strong woman is one with a mind of her own, gifted with smarts and common sense. Otherwise, she would simply be stubborn and obstinate, a shrew, a termagant.
A strong woman sees life for what it is, and will deal with it on the terms she has chosen. She respects her own person and understands her worth, and looks out for herself and the people she cares about.
She tends to be successful, because she sets goals and works to achieve them. A strong woman will control her desires and feelings, especially is she knows that there's a dead end ahead.
Strong women from out-spoken and in-your-face to quiet but steely of resolve, to permutations in between. One characteristic that I've noticed strong women share is the understanding that knowledge and wisdom are important tools. So they take education seriously, because it represents independence, the ability to earn their own keep, and it opens up different options in their lives.
It's no wonder that strong women aren't too trusting, because they know only too well about human frailty and betrayal. So they tend to listen to words with a grain of salt. Men need to earn their respect and trust with their actions. And in every woman, as in every man, lies the wish to be loved truly. Good old-fashioned respect is indispensable in a positive relationship with a woman, whether personal or professional, romantic or platonic, whatever it may be.
As you would wish to be respected, then should you extend respect. Especially with a strong woman. Why? Well, because she is strong, so you don't want to face the consequences. That, of course, is tongue-in-cheek.

I've never believed that men are stronger than women or vice versa, because each gender is made and wired differently. There is just no apples-to-apples comparison. That's why we partner with and support each other. Its the best arrangement. And if a woman is strong, why then, celebrate and rejoice in her strength.

Above all, a strong woman is the one who fears GOD, having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and constantly talking to Him through prayer. Who reads the Bible as her daily bread and guidance. A woman who lives in godly, modest and contented life. And foresee Heaven as her wonderful home.

Are you a strong woman??

PROVERBS 31:30 Charm is deceitful, beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised!

Living Life to the Fullest
