We Are Proverbs 31 Women
Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. She is like merchant ships, she brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, and a portion for her maidservants. She considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, and strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good, and her lamp does not go out by night. She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle. She extends her hand to the poor, yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household is clothed with scarlet. She makes tapestry for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies sashes for the merchants. Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many daughters have done well, but you excel them all. Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but A WOMAN WHO FEARS THE LORD, SHE SHALL BE PRAISED, give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates ( Proverbs 31: 10-31 NKJV).
Time To Move On My Dear
If you do not understand this. Pray to God for His understanding of His Word. Also, it is good to read it over and over again to fully understand.
Have you ever been hurt by love? I have. I realized that it was something in me that was attracting the wrong type of men. Maybe it's because I was trying to fit in and be like every other common woman (Prov. 7). Years ago, I had to learn the hard way that men will not do anything to me that I do not allow. For example, when a guy you like touches you on the first date. He is not the one because he is letting you know what is really on his mind. I want to pour my heart out to this new lost generation. Understand that you will always be tested to see if you really want what you desire in your heart. We say we want a good man, but are we a good woman? If you want men to respect you, then respect yourself. Trust, I am not perfect and I am learning myself. The devil has planted in your mind that you are not enough, but that is a lie! So what if you had a past. Do not allow your sins to run you into a sea of guilt. Ask God to forgive you of your past and learn from your past mistakes with relationships or just lust friendships, move on and become the woman that God wants you to be. I hope that this can be helpful to women out there that truly want to be happy.
