A WOMAN IN THE WILL OF GOD
BY TULLA PRIESSLER
…longs more time to be all alone with her Bible and her Lord;
…is learning to ask, “How, Lord?”, instead of, “Why, Lord?”;
…seems preoccupied at times, for she is trying to get answers for her earthly dilemmas from a heavenly source;
…is not driven by her fears, but by her faith;
…tells her troubles, yes, but first to the Master;
…may have a peculiar peace about her in the midst of turmoil;
…cries often, but dries her tears with renewed determination;
…has eyes that see clearer when they’re closed and ears that hear better when it is quiet;
…is losing her taste for vanity;
…doesn’t cringe when she hears the words “submit” or “obey” for she knows they are directional signs straight from God;
…has well learned to say, “I was wrong; I am sorry”;
…makes others feel very welcome in her presence;
…is wholly surrendered to her Lord, even her attire, her ha*, her face, and her speech, saying, “Yes, my Lord”;
…fears God, yet is not afraid of Him;
…knows how to fight and wrestle in the Spirit, and she knows the secret of worshipping God before the victory as well as after the victory;
…anxiously awaits the trumpet to sound, yet prays that God will wait as she thinks of the lost;
…has learned that less is more, and to be exalted, she must first humble herself;
…has a song to sing like no one else;
…is not fenced in by the restrictions of the society she lives in; for she is free, free to soar in the presence of God, and free to be in God’s perfect will.
