WOMANHOOD IS GOD'S PLAN


As a  friend of mine  said,  women are  made to feel so guilty for being women-   wanting  to marry,  stay   home  and  keep  house  and  mother  our children!   We  have  nothing to  thank  the  feminist movement for. .. our identity as women  has  been  trampled  on  and  we who  wish to stay at  home  have had  that dream sullied by strident women who have penis envy!

We women are created to nurture. It is in our nature to pick up a dolly and embrace her from the time we can grasp her and bring her to our chest and lips... it is entirely natural for us to offer that dolly sustenance from a toy bottle or even our breast, in imitation of our mothers feeding younger siblings...

How many of us have received a cup of tea from tiny teacups, sipping it slowly to delight our little hostesses who are still too young to be entrusted with real teapots and teacups?  Or watched the toddler girl trying to tuck her baby into her tiny dolly's pram, covering its head completely and far too young to really tuck her in? -yet her tenderness and concern is charming to watch...

Now the feminists try to tell us that we are responsible for training our daughters to become servile, and meek and weak, forcing them into a life of subservience that thwarts their potential both personally and financially.  It is easy to see that the majority of these feminists have not mothered sons who will toddle up to a dolly and proceed to poke at her eyes and twist her joints and disrobe her in an attempt to see how she works... his interest is one of inquisitiveness.... he too is doing what comes naturally to him. Working things out in a practical way...

Feminists have been instrumental in promoting contraception and abortion on demand.  They have stolen a lot of women's dreams of being mothers and have often lied to them about consequences that they say are  detrimental to them- mostly career achievements that in the end leave them with empty arms and ashes in their mouth. 

Even the married woman is convinced that her desire to be a mother is misplaced, especially if her desire is for a large family, and sadly even in some churches, this is seen to be an ambition that is frowned upon.  Yet God Himself has placed the desire to bear children and to bring children up, in our hearts.  Yet many feel guilty that they have these desires.... desires which are God given and good.

What God considers of great importance, creating a happy home for the raising of children unto Him, with the blessing of marriage and a committed father, is being destroyed by feminists who are often self-proclaimed lesbian man-haters... women who see marriage as a male invention of tyranny and control, and pregnancy as the undesirable biological entrapment of their gender...

From an early age a little girl will often be fascinated by brides and all the trimmings of a wedding, and again this is natural.  Yet feminists have now managed to influence girls to delay getting married or to cohabit without expecting or even wanting to be married, and again we find the women of today who secretly long to be married feeling guilty for desiring something that really is their birthright as women.  Feminism has taken away that which is precious to our identity as women- being a wife and enjoying the security and esteem that being married brings to a woman who loves her man...

Whilst some feminists did marry and have children, most divorced as their feminist ways weren't conducive to a happy marriage.  Still others cohabited but remained voluntarily childless... many took lesbian lovers.. 

Now not everyone is called to be married and mothers, but these feminist women have so trampled on our natural identity as women that young women and girls are feeling guilty for being women!  They are so confused with what they want in life that they are not only guilty that they want marriage, home and children  but that they are also afraid.  They are often forced to excel at school and university in order to provide for themselves, and are often in the position of finding out that even though they do now want marriage and motherhood, that they have left their run too late.  

Thanks to feminism making women guilty and afraid of their womanhood, many women who in the natural scheme of things, should already be wives and mothers, are doomed to remain single.  Or, hearing the biological clock  ticking, they find their only option to at least become mothers limited to a one night stand or artificial insemination.... hardly ideal for the foundation of a new family...

I know this is true because I have an acquaintance who has fallen for the feminists' lies and who now has found herself in exactly that position.... we are waiting to see how she approaches being childless, which incidentally happened to Germaine Greer after she discovered she did in fact want a child but was unable to have one....

All this feminist clap-trap has done nothing for womankind but heap coals of fire on young women's heads. What should be a natural God-given course of life for a woman has been thwarted and defiled... Countless women have actually become victims of feminists' lies and are destined to live out lonely sad lives... lives rich in worldly possessions but poor in those things of eternal value.

I am sorry for the young women today who feel guilty for being a woman.... I pray that they will come to realise that they are victims of feminist women who tried to liberate them from the good things God had for them, but who instead bound them up in chains of regret and longings that they will have to endure for the rest of their lonely lives...

Please ladies, don't let feminists make you feel guilty for being a woman...

  2. I want to pray for the feminists. I feel nothing but pity knowing their fateful demise if they don't turn to our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ & cry out to be saved. Let's show them love & pray for them, all the while rejecting their twisted viewpoint of womanhood. Love & prayers, in Jesus,Cynthia

    1. You are quite right, Cynthia. I think I was so fed up with the sad consequences of their rhetoric that I lost sight of that. Although I did feel compassion for them when I reflected on the emptiness of their lifes' work.... such a waste of their energy and drive! Thanks for sharing tea with me today! Blessings!

    1. Kristen, I know that a lot of women who have tried the feminists' way often get tired of the rat race and break out of the career and earning path! I am not sure if they completely break out of the feministic brain washing though. Not unless they become Christian and the Saviour washes the mud of feminism out of their eyes, with the cleansing of His Word... Another lovely cuppa shared with friends.. so delightful... thank you! Blessings!

  5. I am reminded of the quote by MARGARET D. NADAULD:
    The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.
    I couldn't say it better!
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful post on NOBH!

  6. Oh Glenys,

    Thank you for sharing this post! It is so true...I used to be one before I gave my heart to Jesus Christ. He makes all things new when we surrender to Him! Thanks for sharing this link at The Alabaster Jar!

    1. Thanks Jolene. Only God can wash away the mud of feminism with the cleansing water of the Word... it's wonderful that He did that for you... a great testimony! It's sad that feminists miss out on the joy that surrendering to God's plan for womankind brings... as my new blogging friend rightly said to me, we must pray for the feminists... Blessings and thanks for sharing a cuppa with me today!

  8. I never really had a chance to explore feminism...I have been married since I was 18. Now that our sons are grown I enjoy working alongside my husband in ministry on the mission field here in Belize. Thank you for sharing this thought provoking post!

  10. Our culture tries to tell us that we can do it all--be everything to everyone. And we wonder why we end up stressed and unhappy. Making choices is not easy, but the joy that comes from following God's plan for our life is amazing.

  12. Amen! The first pic looks just like my daughter and her dolly. She gets it. I hope I never squelch that desire in her to be a good mama and all that God desires her to be. Thanks for linking up to Titus 2 Tuesday on Cornerstone Confessions. Hope to see you again this week.

    1. I loved that pic too! If you are supportive of motherhood and femininity, I am sure your little daughter will love being a woman! :D I used to watch my little daughters and later on my granddaughters, playing with their dollies and being feminine! Some of them were/are quite the miniature diva! LOL thanks for sharing tea today! Blessings!

  13. I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage/family and a career.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Wiola, God and society expect a man to work outside the home in order to provide for his family. In fact unless he is unemployed or ill as is the case with my husband, God expects him to do just that. In fact, He says that if the man does not provide for his family, that even if he is a Christian, he is worse than as an unbeliever! It is the man's primary objective to have a career. Marriage and family are a close second...Combining marriage/family and home is a woman's responsibility. There are times when a man will have to balance these things... if his wife is unwell for example or pregnant, and he will have to go on a rapid growth curve and perhaps ask for advice. It is not unheard of. God's plan for mankind is different for womankind. Thanks for sharing a cuppa with me today. Blessings!

  15. This post makes me sad. I was really looking forward to reading when I saw the title of your link on Naptime Review. I was mentally raising my fist in the air thinking "Thats Right! We should not have to feel guilty for being a woman!" And then the post turned out to be horrendously anti-feminist and what felt to me anti-woman. I will cherish the day that I become a mother. My heart yearns for that day. Until then I thank God for the opportunity that I received to go to college, receive an excellent education among men and become a social worker.

    1. Myranda Su, I am sorry that my post was not what you expected. There is nothing wrong with being educated... we need social workers and so forth. However, it would be in your future child's best interest if you looked after it fully later on.... most feminists opt to leave their children in child care and so miss the many important but sadly fleeting milestones that would have been a joy and privilege seeing firsthand for themselves.

      It doesn't bother me that much that your feathers were ruffled about my post being anti-feminism. That is not to say that I hate feminists per se... just what feminism has done to damage womankind and the family unit...

      I am concerned that you view my posts as being anti-woman. Nothing could be further from the truth. I expend a great deal of my limited energy in encouraging women in not only their high calling as wives and mothers but also to uplift them as homemakers, something that the world and possibly yourself, are denigrating into something subservient and menial.

      I speak out about domestic violence and abortion which HURT women, and I have bared my soul in posts describing my horrendous experiences in my first 25 year physically abusive marriage. All in an effort to protect WOMEN. I myself have seen the anguish of beaten women and have been grateful for domestic violence shelters many times...

      You speak as if you despise me and have labeled me as a misogynist, yet far from hating womankind, I applaud them and think that the majority of them are doing a wonderful job of balancing marriage, motherhood and home. I therefore invite you to read a few more of my posts under the relevant sections in the sidebar to get to know me before you judge me.

      God calls us to be full time wives and mothers and keepers of our home because He sees it of great value. We are working for that which is eternal, not temporal. I do not despise feminists, many do not know Christ and therefore have not tasted of the good things that God has in store for us.... My prayer is that you take a second look at what Christ has to offer us as women.... it really is a precious and amazing path for us. Blessings and thanks for sharing a cuppa with me today!

  16. I have been extremely blessed to live out my dream of being a stay-at-home mom. I know not everyone desires it or has that opportunity, but I had both and I thank God for it.

    2. It is such a tonic to read your blog. Especially in arguing against the un Godly influence of feminist ideology which goes against all the natural instincts of most women and by promoting abortion and contraception actively promotes the murder of innocent children, promiscuity and a continuous assault on traditional feminine virtues. Susanne

    3. Totally agree with you, Susanne. I believe the world would be a better place if women were allowed to be women and children were seen as blessings, not nuisances..to be fit in with our hectic lifestyle... if at all. Thanks so much for encouraging me today. Blessings!

  18. Definitely - as a Catholic, well more as a Christian I believe very firmly that we should leave 'family planning' in the hands of God. Thankfully I believe that more and more Christian women are coming to see that artificial contraception is a sin, goes very directly against God's design for us as women, turns women into sex objects and forms part of a culture of sin leading through pornography, masturbation, promiscuity and adultery to abortion and divorce.

  19. Yes ironically its endless demands to try and eliminate the natural process of motherhood through contraception and abortion has debased womanhood rather than 'liberating' anyone. The obsession with having a career and wanting to compete with men in every sphere has belittled women who want to stay at home to look after their husband, children and home. And the rejection of purity, modesty and feminine clothing has increasingly caused body image problems for young girls. S
