A Cowgirl Should Know…


I found this several years ago (I think from Lynz), and stumbled across it in my notes the other day. I still like it, and thought I would share.

 

Five Things a Cowgirl Should Know (or any girl:)

 

How to look like a girl.
How to act like a lady.
How to think like a man.
How to work like a dog.
How to live like a Christian.

You Should Know:
How to look like a girl. God chose to make you a girl when he created you. From the beginning you were different. That look of difference envelopes your complete being and radiates all about you. The clothes you wear don’t matter, if you know you are female. Men agree, so does God. 1 Timothy 2:9. . . “that women adorn themselves in modest apparel.”

You Should Know:
How to act like a lady. A lady is, as a lady does. Actions speak louder than words. Some women talk unlady like, even walk like men. Rough speech and a manly stride are not acceptable for women. Men know you are a lady by the way you act. So does God. Romans 12:1-2 “…That ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God … and be not conformed to this world.”

You Should Know:
How to think like a man. God gave you a mind, and knowledge is a great gift. Show people have many skills and abilities. They learn how to use them well. Competition between men and women is alright. But you can win or lose like a lady. Men agree, so does God. 2 Timothy 1:7 . . .”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

You Should Know:
How to work like a dog. Man may work from sun to sun but women’s work is never done. A woman does so much for her family, sometimes it’s unnoticed, even taken for granted. But our families love us for all the work we do. So does God:
Proverbs 31:13 through 27 . . .
“She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands . . She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not the bread of idleness.”

You Should Know:
How to live like a Christian. Christian means Christ-like. Christ died for our sins. So we must die, to self and be born again of the Spirit. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Everyone has sinned) Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (Salvation can’t be worked for or bought, it’s a gift). Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shall be saved.”
