Proverbs 31 Woman

Proverbs 31
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

God laid it on my heart about becoming the kind of woman these scriptures talks about. There was always something that kept me lagging behind. I would get tied up in the business or something and say to myself I'll fold the clothes later. lol That don't work. Things start piling up and before I knew it was plain overwhelming. I prayed about it and studied hard on it. God showed me what a proverbs 31 woman really is. Its not facebook, chatting with friends all day, playing apps or watching a movie. Its about being a wonderful wife, mother, homemaker and person. How are we as women going to accomplish the goals God has for us if  we're couch potatoes? We can't. We have to be willing to put our selfishness aside and think about others for a change. In the long run we benefit too. We do need to rest and take time for ourselves but God and others should come first. How would your finances be if you started saving money on groceries and other things? Everybody loves to save money but doing it is a different thing. Starting tomorrow we will look at each and every verse on the proverbs 31 woman. You don't have to be a married woman to be proverbs 31. Send me a comment below or contact me on the contact page if you plan on joining me in this journey.  

Lots of Love in Christ,
