Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman in One Month – Week 4

Day 22: Read Proverbs Chapter 22.

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. She is not afraid of winter for her family, who are all well clothed. She chooses the best clothes for herself, which is of the finest and richest materials. Others respect her husband, and he sits with those who are well known. She makes things and sells them, and supplies the stores with her products to sell. She is dressed with strength and honor and she will celebrate in the years to come. She speaks with wisdom, and her words are ruled by kindness. 

She watches over the ways of her family and is not lazy.

Do you watch over your family carefully and work hard to provide for them?  Do you spend time doing unimportant things? What steals your time from your family?  Are you on the internet too much?  Do you watch too much TV?  Do you play video games too much?  Are there any other activities that keep you from doing what’s important for your family?  When things keep us from doing what’s important, it’s usually an addiction of some sort.  If you are addicted to an activity that disrupts your family life, then you need to seek God out and ask Him to help you get free from it.  God’s word teaches that we should not let anything have control over us.  Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 23: Read Proverbs Chapter 23.

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. She is not afraid of winter for her family, who are all well clothed. She chooses the best clothes for herself, which is of the finest and richest materials. Others respect her husband, and he sits with those who are well known. She makes things and sells them, and supplies the stores with her products to sell. She is dressed with strength and honor and she will celebrate in the years to come. She speaks with wisdom, and her words are ruled by kindness. 

She watches over the ways of her family and is not lazy. Her children will come and bless her with their praises, and her husband also praises her.

 

Are you praiseworthy?  Even if they don’t praise you now, they generally will in the long run, if you’ve earned their praise.  It may seem like an eternity before you hear their praises for you, but after a while, you likely will.  Trust God and you will.  After many years of heartache and abuse, my husband is finally beginning to see my worth.  And I believe it will have been worth the wait.  Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 24: Read Proverbs Chapter 24.

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 chooses the best clothes for herself, which is of the finest and richest materials. Others respect her husband, and he sits with those who are well known. She makes things and sells them, and supplies the stores with her products to sell. She is dressed with strength and honor and she will celebrate in the years to come. She speaks with wisdom, and her words are ruled by kindness. 

She watches over the ways of her family and is not lazy. Her children will come and bless her with their praises, and her husband also praises her. Many women have done well, but you do better than them all.

Have you tried to be the best woman you can be, or have you settled with just being ordinary?  God does extraordinary things with ordinary people.  Even if you feel very ordinary, you can do your very best to serve God and others. Deborah, Ruth, Rahab, Esther, Mary, Elisabeth, and others were very ordinary women, who God used in miraculous ways.  Ask God what you can do to be your very best and be willing to be used by God, no matter what he asks of you.  You won’t be used by God, nor be blessed by God, without humble and faithful obedience.  Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 25: Read Proverbs Chapter 25.

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 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. She is not afraid of winter for her family, who are all well clothed. She chooses the best clothes for herself, which is of the finest and richest materials. Others respect her husband, and he sits with those who are well known. She makes things and sells them, and supplies the stores with her products to sell. She is dressed with strength and honor and she will celebrate in the years to come. She speaks with wisdom, and her words are ruled by kindness. 

She watches over the ways of her family and is not lazy. Her children will come and bless her with their praises, and her husband also praises her. Many women have done well, but you do better than them all. Good manners are deceitful and beauty passes quickly, but a woman who respects God will be praised.

Do you respect God and put God first in your heart?  What you look like and how you act will only be made better by your dedication to God.  When we have peace with God, everything about us virtually glows.  People will want what you have and will want to know how to get it.  This can be a ministry opportunity in the making.  Ask God to take away any forms of false worship from you and help you to put Him first and foremost in your heart.  Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook. 

Day 26: Read Proverbs Chapter 26.

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 chooses the best clothes for herself, which is of the finest and richest materials. Others respect her husband, and he sits with those who are well known. She makes things and sells them, and supplies the stores with her products to sell. She is dressed with strength and honor and she will celebrate in the years to come. She speaks with wisdom, and her words are ruled by kindness. 

She watches over the ways of her family and is not lazy. Her children will come and bless her with their praises, and her husband also praises her. Many women have done well, but you do better than them all. Good manners are deceitful and beauty passes quickly, but a woman who respects God will be praised. Give her what she has earned by her actions and let her own works bring her the praise of others.

What have you worked hard for?  Has your work earned the praise of others?  We shouldn’t simply work for the praise of others, but when our work is praiseworthy, it speaks for itself and others will eventually praise us for it.  Sometimes it may seem we get no thanks for our efforts, but if we work hard and persevere we will eventually get the praise we deserve, if not in this world, then in the next.  We must believe that God is and that God rewards those who diligently seek Him. Write your thoughts on this down in your notebook.

I am a mother of eight wonderful children and five grandkids, of whom I am very proud. 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. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily 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 around the world. 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.
