The 5 Women Chosen By God

By Jean Gasho

Unveiled

(This is dedicated to all women who have been abused and betrayed by the men who controlled their future.)

She was abused and used, and yearned for justice

She was a fighter and a woman of courage

She wanted to protect what was rightfully hers

She took a risk and claimed her destiny

Betrayed by the men who controlled her future

She fought for her right to believe in a loving God

By her bravery she preserved the Tribe of Judah

Allow me somebody, to reintroduce

A woman of courage who never gave up

Tamar

 

Unashamed

(This is dedicated to all women with past mistakes who think their history has power to shape their future)

She was like Rapunzel, waiting for her escape

Up in a tower on city walls of Jericho, she sold her body

She was a strong willed woman, who believed her redemption was nigh

It only took one day, the day she had been waiting for

Two Hebrew spies touched her heart

And she professed her faith in an unseen God

She moved the heart of God,

So much she is a hero of faith in Hebrews 11

Allow me somebody, to reintroduce

A woman of great faith

Rahab

 

 

Unshaken

(This is dedicated to all women who give up everything to follow their faith, expecting nothing in return)

She was a woman of Moab, a foreigner

She gave up her home, her family, her future

To love a woman who had given her a husband

Your people shall be my people, your God my God

Her worth was far above rubies

Better to her mother in law than 10 sons

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing

But a woman who fears the Lord she shall be praised

She gave up everything expecting nothing

And God honoured her

Allow me somebody, to reintroduce

A woman of virtue

Ruth

Unspoken

(This is dedicated to all women who have made that one mistake that will mar their reputation for the rest of their lives)

She made a mistake that cost her reputation

She was an adulteress, and she deserved to be stoned to death

A woman who was never meant to wear royal robes

But her beauty stirred the passion of a King

Her pain moved the heart of God

She became the beloved wife of the King

The mother of the wisest man who ever lived

Her son honoured her and gave her a throne

Allow me somebody to reintroduce

A woman of unmerited grace

Bathsheba

 

 

Unafraid

(This is dedicated to all women who have dreams that seems impossible, to achieve ,who are waiting for that special moment when the impossible will became a reality)

She was a young woman who yearned for the living God

Her soul magnified the Lord

And she rejoiced in God her Saviour

She watched and waited for the Messiah

Little did she know the prophet Isaiah had spoken about her

Unafraid to bear the stigma of pregnancy outside of wedlock

She boldly trusted in what God had chosen for her

All eternity had been waiting for this one moment

And God chose her

Allow me somebody to reintroduce

A woman after God’s own heart

Mary

 

These are five ordinary woman chosen by God

The only women to be mentioned in Mathew’s genealogy of Christ

Each woman is an object lesson about the working of Devine Grace

Five unlikely women who changed eternity

Allow me somebody to reintroduce

Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, Mary

The five women in the lineage of Grace
