There is nothing I desire more than to cultivate in my life the qualities of the Proverbs 31 woman. To do my husband good, to work with my hands, to provide nourishing food for my family, to reach out my hands to the needy, to fear the Lord...
She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands.
She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household.
She considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard.
She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Without a doubt I have far, far to go, and, of course, it's not all about what we produce with our hands, but I love to keep my hands busy and productive. I love using and improving the gifts the Lord has given me to bless my family and others. And I appreciate and thank the special friends the Lord has brought into my life who inspire me to godliness, to quietness, and to being still. :)
Above all, I am thankful to the Lord who is my strength:
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. ~Psalm 28:7
