Proverbs 31 Project (Day 24)

Day 24: Remember This is Supposed to be Fun!

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” -Isaiah 61:10

We are almost there don’t give up!

Day 13: Love Yourself Like God Does!

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” – Galatians 5:25

Mountain of the Month

By now you all are probably second guessing this Proverbs 31 challenge. I know the original plan is to go through this for the 31 days of July but I really think it is possible to start at any time. Although it would be nice to go through these challenges with all your lovely ladies, sometime it is hard for every one to get on one accord. If you are going through some serious struggles to stay task with me, bless your soul. LOL…

Today we are adding yet another, thing to do on our ‘to do list.’ ORGANIZE!!!

I am the Queen of disorganization or in my work area – cluttering things up. I say that to say this, I hate disorganization in an organization. Does that make sense? When it comes to a group or business trying to obtain a goal, it drives me bat-spit (ha-ha didn’t cuss) crazy to run around in circles. When it comes to my work area, my truck, closet, drawers, etc., I am too lax. Instead of getting right on it, I will let it drive me crazy with annoyance and then handle it.

The goal is to attack all that bothers you now in the clutter department NOW! Easier said than done, I know honey you don’t have to tell me. This is the hardest next to the ’10’ compliments a day challenge that I ever had to complete. Procrastination is my middle name.

The main purpose of this Proverbs project is for self-improvement. If thought we were great and without fault we wouldn’t be participating, right?

The plan is to make a daily plan. Whenever you do your study time or quiet reflection with God, add this chore to your list. Not saying you have to write down every tedious moment of your day but write down the major projects. Watch how it cuts out confusion in your life. Instead of feeling like a hamster who keeps running, only to pass out at night and realize that you missed a few things that may have been extremely important, follow the list.

Although we can hold superwoman qualities at times, we are only human. It is human nature to forget some things and it has nothing to do with age. My 16 y/o will forget his boxers if he didn’t feel the cool breeze, just keeping it pimping.

This is the year to end procrastination and excuses. If it is something that you desire to do and have been putting it off for so long, make the list on how to get it done. Once the list is completed, start working towards completing the goal. We all live busy lives but are we too busy to better ourselves so we may be a blessing to others.

Proverbs 12:24 states, “The hand of the diligent will rule, while the slothful will be put to forced labor.”

That simply says, when you are diligent, you don’t have work piled around you. If you are slothful and lazy, you sink into a huge magnitude of labor.

Our prayer focus should be on guidance, patience, time management, and lowering our stress levels. Releasing our anxieties and decreasing our worries, while organizing our thoughts. Give thanks for the strength that is to come to deal with the lists we create.

Pray for me and I will return the favor.

Much Love,

Kanika

Day 12: 120 Original Traits!

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman fears the Lord is to be praised.” -Proverbs 31:30

Reflection, meditation, and challenge announcements…

Reflect over Proverbs 31:13-14

A virtuous woman is not lazy nor slothful. We as women must aim hiring than simply existing. Although the goal is to treat our significant others, spouses, soul-mates as if they are the head of the house, we cannot forget our role is just as important. How can we expect the men to lead if we are not open to being lead? If this is a God-fearing man, then there is no way he will lead us astray. Once we open our minds to the bigger picture and see past the common definition of some words, we will realize most of us have been doing the exact thing we argue about. We just hate the stigma of the meaning ‘lead, head, cater.’

Meditate over the meaning of the word ‘bride’ of Christ. Meditate over how you envision the woman of God. Remember the virtuous woman description was given by a woman, a mother who only wanted what was best for her son. A God-fearing man who only wanted to live for and serve God. What’s the harm in lending that man an ear, a sound opinion free of malice, a home cooked meal, and a drama free home?

The point of the ‘Husband box’ is to add the things you desire in your relationship. Here’s your chance to prepare, meditate, and pray for guidance in the matters of the heart.

The next challenge to add to our already growing list of compliments, RECIPES!!! As most of you know, I love trying out new stuff. Things that I didn’t even think was possible of cooking without culinary skills. Better yet, I was just plain ole too lazy to try. Honesty is the best policy… 🙂

The goal is to try one, (1), new recipe a week. Either you can pick the same day every week or rotate that bad boy however you see fit. All I suggest is plan ahead what day you want to try something new and stick to the plan. Research your recipes either on the internet, cooking shows, or my personal favorite Pinterest. FYI, P.E.W. Ministry has a pinterest page. Yes ma’am, press ham-I will admit I am a Pinterest addict. https://www.pinterest.com/pewministry/

Alright Monday marks the start of week three and I can hardly wait. I have begun to anticipate the monologue that comes with this project. In these trying times where we all stand in the need of prayer, I am going to leave you all with one.

Heavenly and gracious father, we come to you to give you thanks for blessing us beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you for protecting us, guiding us, and leading us in the direction you have designed for us to go. We praise and magnify your glorious name. Father God, despite all that is going on in this world we thank you for protecting our family and our households. Although we fall short of your glory every day, we pray that you continue to lead us down the path of righteousness. We give you thanksgiving with humble hearts that you have not giving up on us just yet and we are allowed to see another day. Please continue to touch our youth, spouses, finances, mind, body, and souls with your powerful hands. In Jesus Christ name we pray, Amen and Thank God!

Pray for me and I will pray for you.

Much Love,

Kanika
