A Nameless Woman
So many women in the bible we hear;
Like mother of Jesus and Elizabeth too,
Praying to God with no fear;
Trusting him to guide them through.
Lydia,Priscilla and Ruth we know;
Vashti and Esther queens on high.
Stories shared to help us grow;
Wonderful examples for us to apply.
I heard a lesson the other day;
Nameless women no one knew.
They worshiped God the right way;
But their names were hidden from view.
Made me think what I do;
Am I serving God not man,
Or looking for praise for all to view.
To get glory here is not his plan.
A Nameless woman for God to see;
Using my talents from above
Is all I really want to be,
Filled with kindness and God's love.
Ladies let's strive to be a light,
Shining with our names not known;
Quietly serving out of sight
Just planting the seed to be sown.

Thank you, sweet sister, for this lovely reminder!
