• “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

Why Was I Created a Woman? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/01/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why were you created as a woman?

“Uhh . . . to bring home the bacon?!” (laughter)

“It was just chance, I guess.”

“So I could turn some heads!”

Nancy: Do you know that the Bible has a lot to say about why women were created?

“The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him’” (Gen. 2:18).

Nancy: Are you willing to sacrifice your own ambitions to fulfill your role as a helper to your husband?

“For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man” (1 Cor. 11:8-9).

Nancy: Is your life helping and blessing the men around you?

“The woman is the glory of man” (1 Cor. 11:7).

Nancy: Why were you created as a woman? As you read God’s Word, ask Him to show you His purpose for your life. Then ask Him to help you fulfill that purpose.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

Verse of the Day

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? — Mark 8:36 (NKJV)
