Have you ever wonder why you were born as a woman instead of a man? Was there a moment when you feel that being a woman is worthless, insignificant and of no value? Or lesser may be?
At one point or another, we had this idea that life would be better if we were born in the opposite gender – we’re stronger in body and tougher with our emotions.
But why, seriously?
As a kick-off to my series this month of July with regards to woman empowerment, I would like to share to you the beautiful article below which illustrates God’s thoughts on why He created a woman. Though not biblical in detail and the author is unknown, the letter shows how the “delicate and fragile being” makes a difference in the life of everyone as meticulously designed by our Inventor. 🙂
When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils. But you, woman, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into man because your nostrils are too delicate. I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you.
Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity. From one bone I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects man’s life. I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.
Around this one bone I shaped you. I modeled you. I created you perfectly and beautifully. Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yet delicate and fragile. You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart. His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life. The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart.
Support man as the rib cage supports the body. You were not taken from his feet, to be under him, nor were you taken from his head, to be above him. You were taken from his side, to stand beside him and be held close to his side. You are my perfect angel. You are my beautiful little girl. You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and my eyes fill when I see the virtue in your heart. Your eyes, don’t change them. Your lips, how lovely when they part in prayer. Your nose, so perfect in form. Your hands so gentle to touch. I’ve caressed your face in your deepest sleep. I’ve held your heart close to mine. Of all that lives and breathes, you are the most like me.
Adam walked with me in the cool of the day and yet he was lonely. He could not see me or touch me. He could only feel me. So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with me, I fashioned in you: my holiness, my strength, my purity, my love, my protection and support.
You are special because you are the extension of me. Man represents my image; woman, my emotions. Together, you represent the totality of God.
So man, treat woman well. Love her, respect her, for she is fragile. In hurting her, you hurt her Maker . What you do to her, you do to Him. In crushing her, you only damage your own heart, the heart of your Father and the heart of her Father.
Woman, support man. In humility, show him the power of emotion your Maker has given you. In gentle quietness, show your strength. In love, show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.
In addition, I came across to this statement in my Facebook feeds. I don’t exactly know why but I really feel the need to include this one. Men, please read carefully. 🙂
