Since I’ve started blogging Godsy Girl, I’ve gotten a few emails about the term and what it really means. Essentially, Godsy Girl is a new blog for today’s Christian woman. It features encouraging articles and insights written by me – Teri Worten Brooks.
Godsy Girl is a term the Lord gave me a few years ago. Before the WWJD movement, I’d ask myself “What would a Godsy Girl do?” during life’s temptations. The name kind of stuck with me. Similarly, it must have hit a “nerve” with other women because I’ve been getting emails from Godsy Girls all across the country! I never expected this much interest! Holla, Godsy Girls, Holla!
A Little Definition
Essentially, a Godsy Girl is a Christian woman [of any age] consumed with becoming just like Christ according to I John 2:6. She strives to walk in love, patience and kindness; but she’s no pushover. She knows her identity in Christ and doesn’t settle for foolishness – just as Jesus didn’t.
She doesn’t need a lot of attention. She enjoys compliments, but doesn’t need them or seek them. She’s secure in her skin and finds joy in walking out her destiny and pleasing her God. She’s not jealous of others or worried about the future because she believes Ps 16:5. For me, the original Godsy Girl (OGG) in my life was my grandmother, Mother Ethel Mills.
Do know: she knows she’s not perfect or sinless in herself, but she wants to perfect (“complete, mend, restore, strengthen”) what is missing in the Body of Christ as directed in 2Corinthians 13:11. I love that the Amplified Bible also adds being “what you ought to be” to the definition. That’s Godsy at it’s best!
Godsy Girl and Ministry
A Godsy Girl finds creative ways to utilize her spiritual gifts in ministry, service and excellence. Her treasure is her spiritual growth and drawing others to Jesus Christ.
It’s also important to note that I am not a pastor, preacher or evangelist. Just a Christian wife and mom eager to be a blessing and see what the “end is gonna be”. Grow with me!
