Living on Love and Cents , My Slice of Sanity, One + One = Four and Flutterbys And Frogs have joined together to bring you Women in the Word Fellowship on Wednesday”. I hope you will join us! Once a week we will share about our time in the word and have you share your time “in the word” as well. There is a linky at the end of each post. You do NOT have to post a devotion, scripture or anything unless you want. If you have words of encouragement or a devotion post to link up that would be awesome! If you are a “Woman in the Word” and would like to find other Christian Bloggers –link up! Please grab the button to spread the word about our fellowship! I am looking forward to our fellowship! I hope we can all encourage one another each week!
Now for my weekly “Women in the Word” time!
My GOAL is to be a Proverbs 31 woman! As a mom we all have such an amazing responsibility! We wear so many hats! God expects alot from us as women. And in the end he will reward us for all these things! I have copied a section of Proverbs 31 below. It is so powerful! WOW -sometimes I forget home important our “job” as a mother and wife is! Take a moment to read this. I hope that it is an encouragement to you today! He has made us very special and blessed us richly with gifts! Are you a Proverbs 31 woman? Together we can strive to be this amazing woman of God! ~ Heather
A Wife of Noble Character
10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.
16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night.
19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm[c] clothes.
22 She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.
28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
Each week we will spotlight someone who linked to an uplifting scripture/devo/ thoughts etc. from the previous week. Please let me know if you are a new follower! I am excited to find new christian blogging moms!
