Day 5: Admit it. You’re Amazing!
“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
Recap over the entire week:
We have been studying, meditating, and breaking down Proverbs 31:10-12.
10 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
In a nutshell, a virtuous woman is a woman who fears the Lord. After all a God fearing man needs a God fearing woman and vice versa. In order to rectify order within the household, there has to be a unified front. The children have to see an example in order to one day lead their own household.
A virtuous woman is not vain nor lacking in beauty, the beauty simply shines from the inside out. Her every thought is whether her actions are pleasing to God. Of course we all fall short of his divine glory but as long as we do our very best to correct our errors with a simple repentance, all will be right in his eyes.
As women we always feel the need to compare or ride the line of envy when surrounded by other women. It’s a natural instinct to want this or want that, mainly because we don’t have it. The moral of that story is, we never really know what all the next had to go through to get what we thought was nice. That is a lesson for another day.
All in all, be courageous enough to seek the answers to the questions about faith. Stand tall when you walk into a room and even taller when you are alone. Never be ashamed of the struggle or what some may view as failures. Remember everybody has a little stank on them, no one person is perfect besides Jesus. He died for our sins. His blood ran to wash us clean from the stain of the world.
With so much going on in the world, the least we can do is lift our spouses up in prayer. Pray for the blood to cover our family, friends, and their surroundings with the protection to see them through all the traps set before them. Pray for the sick, shut in, lost, homeless, hungry, weary, wounded, and bound. Pray for our children, those that have direct access to our children, and the world that we may leave behind.
Lord knows, some of the ones that have sworn to protect and serve are doing more harm than good. Regardless of those misguided individuals, there is no logical explanation for cold blooded murder. Ambushing innocent folks because they look like the guilty. After all, isn’t that the reasoning for the guilty to commit their crimes to begin with. Racial profiling is simply categorizing one group of people in one box whether they are living foul or not, right?
Stand your ground and license to carry are not one sided or at least it isn’t supposed to be. Somehow it still seems to only be legal for certain people. Sadly a clear understanding as to what is allowed and what is not has become fuzzier as the years go by.
My apologies if today’s lesson turned into more of a rant than teaching. We will reconvene on Monday, if it is the Lord’s will.
Stay prayed up! Please pray for me and I will do the same for you.
