Practical Ways You Can Become A Proverbs 31 Woman!



Oh the infamous woman of proverbs chapter 31.  You know the one... that woman that makes you feel horrible and nothing but a failure!  I read Proverbs 31, once again, the other day... and instead I was totally encouraged by this woman of God.  I noticed the joy and peace and total freedom this chapter exudes.  I mean, it's almost dripping with joy!

Instead of reading this chapter and walking away feeling like a reject, why not strive to make practical changes in your own life that would make YOU such a woman of God!  It's really not that hard.  

It never said that this lady was perfect or never had an off day, but that her life could be described in such a way because of her character and walk with the Lord.  Which one of these could you start working on this week?

15. She's not lazy.
{There is a difference between taking time to relax and living a life of relaxation.}

16. She's a giver not a taker.

{Physical exercise will help your mind stay sharp.  Think on things that are true and holy.}

24. She works hard to keep her walk with the Lord thriving.
 {Stay in God's Word daily.  Meditate upon His truths.}

25. She sees that her time and efforts are profitable and doesn't waste.
{Don't say yes to everything.  Seek to say yes to that which is profitable and will have an eternal weight and reward.}

26. She gives to the poor and reaches out to the needy.
 {How can you give to the poor?  Seek to give as a family.}

27. She is a planner and is prepared for any season.
 {Take inventory of household goods and plan for the next season.}

28. She is dignified.
{Act in a way that is honorable and respectful.}

{Never talk bad about your husband, only good.}

30. She is happy and hopeful.
{Don't take life so seriously.  Laugh a lot.}

  5. LOVE this!! :) I really don't much like Proverbs 31 nor any Mother's Day sermon about children rising up and calling their mothers blessed because I have this silly fear that I don't measure up ... I love your PRACTICAL take on this - and perhaps I can let go of some of my high expectations!! :)
