Proverbs 18:22 AMP
He who finds a true wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.
Womanhood like manhood is not a biological status, it is a mental accomplishment. However, we shall be restricted to womanhood here in the next couple of days(weeks).
Any reasonable mind will advise you to shun the thought of marriage until you attain the height called manhood or womanhood. They call it MATURITY. However, most people think being a woman is got to do with how long you have stayed on this earth. Please, trash any mentality that limits womanhood to just age and physiological maturity… It is unhealthy!
I have seen grandmothers who are just aged girls or old females, I have also met ladies in their teenage who effortlessly operate in the realm of womanhood. A little confusing? Yeah, just patiently follow my trail of thoughts

I personally believe that many marriages do not enjoy the favour of God and other goodies that come with marriage because of this misconception. I hope this piece opens someone’s eyes.
If you gained admission into a college like University of Benin, you can not be too excited until you have successfully completed your registration and screening exercise ( it can be tedious sometimes ) .
After a successful registration, you will be given an eligibility slip which certifies you a student of the institution, this gives you access to enjoy every privilege you are entitled to(as a student) . During the registration process, they cross-check your claims and confirm the veracity of all your documents just to ensure that you merit to own the school Identity card . I think same goes for marriage. Until you develop a woman traits and attributes, it would be impossible to enjoy the favour and goodness that comes with marriage.
Sadly most of the marriages do not get validated because they fail heaven’s screening. People may called you a great man but inside, you are a toddler, you may even assume you are a real woman even when reality calls you a beautiful little girl.
Remember, God doesn’t see or judge the same way humans do. God doesn’t look at countenance, or on the height of your stature, he doesn’t care about your age or bank account. He told Samuel “..for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart”.
Nobody is born a woman, it is a matter of sacrifice and self investment .
Dear sister, stop disturbing heaven’s gate with your constant prayer about Mr RIGHT, invest that time to unveil the woman within you. Be an asset to the person that will eventually spend his lifetime with you. Let him be lucky indeed.
We will be sharing more about the traits of a real woman in the next few posts.
