Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman in One Month – Week 2


Week 2

Day 8: Read Proverbs Chapter 8.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her.

Do you rise up early enough to give everyone a nutritious breakfast before they leave the house? Breakfast should be the most important meal of the day.  There are numerous health studies showing the health benefits to those who start their day with a good breakfast.  It can be as simple as a bowl of cereal or oatmeal, and milk or juice, but it’s important to give your family a good healthy start to their day.  Pop Tarts and doughnuts just don’t cut it, girls.  We should make the effort to do better than that for our family’s well being.  Ask God to help you get to bed on time in order to be fresh and rested in the morning.  Maybe you should cut off that TV a little sooner.  And take it out of the bedroom, for God’s sake! You may face some resistance from your husband here. If so, give it to God in prayer.  Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 9: Read Proverbs Chapter 9.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her. She looks at a piece of land and buys it, and from her profits she plants a garden.

Do you own a piece of land and have you planted a garden to provide healthy food for you family? If you own a home and have some land, you should plant a garden to give your family more healthy foods.  If you are a renter, then you should consider trying to buy even a small piece of land.  A mobile home on a piece of land of your own is better than an apartment that is not yours, and you should buy some land if you can afford to at all. If you’re a renter, you can still plant a pot garden. It can be as simple as a pot of dirt with some lettuce and cherry tomatoes for salads if that’s all you can afford.  Ask God to help you find an affordable piece of land or give you wisdom to understand what else you can do in the area of ownership verses renting. Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 10: Read Proverbs Chapter 10.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her. She looks at a piece of land and buys it, and from her profits she plants a garden. She makes herself strong and strengthens her arms with her work.

Do you exercise regularly either at work or at home.  If you don’t exercise your body at work, then you should get exercise in some other way.  If you do a lot of hard physical work like farming, then you may not need more physical exercise, but if you sit at a computer all day, then you need to exercise regularly at some other time. Walking, biking, and swimming are good exercises and are the least stressful on your body.  Running and Jumping on a mini trampoline are good too, but may be more injurious to you.  Find some form of physical fitness exercise and do it at least three or four times a week.  Three times a week will maintain your weight and four or more will reduce your weight. Ask God to help you get on a regular exercise program and stick to it.  

Day 11: Read Proverbs Chapter 11.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her. She looks at a piece of land and buys it, and from her profits she plants a garden. She makes herself strong and strengthens her arms with her work. She knows that what she sells is good, and often she stays up late into the night.

Do you know that what you do is good and work long hours when necessary?  If your work is not good for you and others, do you need to change your employment?  Is it worth staying up late to do? Is God leading you away from your line of work?  God sometimes leads us to new ways of thinking and sometimes that may lead us to new lines of work if we find that what we are doing is not good for us, our families, and others.  Do you work in a Casino, bar, or other establishment, which encourages ungodly living?  Does your work take too much time away from your family? Then maybe you should look for work elsewhere.  Ask God to help you find employment that helps and not hinders others if you are faced with a situation like these.  Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 12: Read Proverbs Chapter 12.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her. She looks at a piece of land and buys it, and from her profits she plants a garden. She makes herself strong and strengthens her arms with her work. She knows that what she sells is good, and often she stays up late into the night. She reaches for the tools she works with and takes her work in her hands.

What are your tools and are you ready for work? Are you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually ready for work? What do you have that you can use to earn a living?  What talents and attributes do you have that could work for you?  We must be rested, focused, and emotionally stable to be good workers.  If we do not get enough rest, or are distracted by other things, or are emotionally distraught, we cannot be good workers.  If our spiritual life is in need of attention, we won’t be ready for work in any other area of our lives either.  Think about what assets, attributes, and talents you have that may benefit you financially and capitalize on them.  Ask God to help you find a way to use them to provide for your family.  Some good work at home opportunities are Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Avon, and Celebrate Home (Home Interior).  I highly suggest if you try one of these, that you have a party first to see if it’s a fit for you and help you pay for your starter kit.  It’s not a good idea to go into debt to get your kit like I did and risk not being able to pay for it. Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 13: Read Proverbs Chapter 13.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her. She looks at a piece of land and buys it, and from her profits she plants a garden. She makes herself strong and strengthens her arms with her work. She knows that what she sells is good, and often she stays up late into the night. She reaches for the tools she works with and takes her work in her hands. She gives to the poor and reaches out to those in need.

Do you give regularly to those who are less fortunate than you are? There is always someone in more need than we are.  If you don’t know of anyone personally, then give to a church or other Christian organization that will help the poor.  If you do know someone personally, I believe you will be blessed more by personally giving to them, and making a connection with them that may lead to a more enriched relationship in the future.  Usually both parties are blessed more when it’s personal. I know when times are hard it feels too tough to give to others, but God’s word says that we’ll be blessed with the same measure we give to others.  The more we give, the more we are blessed. Ask God who you should bless and how? Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 14: Read Proverbs Chapter 14.

Memorize: Who can find an honorable wife?  She is worth far more than anything money can buy. Her husband can trust her with all of his heart. He won’t lose anything for which he’s worked hard. She does good and not evil to him every day of her life. She looks for meat and produce and works willingly with her hands.  She is like a buyer who gets her food from far away places. She also gets up while it’s still dark to feed her family and gives some to those who work for her. She looks at a piece of land and buys it, and from her profits she plants a garden. She makes herself strong and strengthens her arms with her work. She knows that what she sells is good, and often she stays up late into the night. She reaches for the tools she works with and takes her work in her hands. She gives to the poor and reaches out to those in need.

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderful children and three grandkids, who I am very proud of. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. My ministry is geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community, and that I have been called to the homeland mission field of North America. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
