Proverbs 31, Acts 13:1-25
I know I’m late to comment. I just want to share that one mothers day i used some of these verses to make a photo scrapbook for my mom. I always struggled to connect emotionally with her. But reviewing photos of clothes she sewed, blankets she knitted, big holiday dinners which took all day to cook- exchange students she welcomed… the book was very meaningful for both of us! If you know a Proverbs 31 woman- consider ways to honor and encourage her- especially if it is your own mom.
“She is clothed in strength and dignity and laughs at the time to come… her children will rise up and call her blessed.” My favorite verse.
Yes, yes, YES!!!
“give her of the fruit of her hands,
& let her works praise her in the gates”
– I love that he finishes the entire chapter with this. i feel as if it sums the entire chapter up perfectly. he is basically saying “the kind of fruit a woman’s life produces shows you what kind of woman she is!”
it reminds me that as women we just need to be aware of the kind of fruit we are producing. I want to be the type of woman that will make my coworkers proud, my future husband proud, my future kids proud, my friends proud, my parents proud, my sister proud, etc. I need to pay attention to the type of fruit I am producing. as long as I am focusing on Christ, He will produce good fruit in my life. it’s not about focusing on the fruit, it’s about focusing on the God who feeds my soul so that I can produce His fruit. it’s about what I let feed my soul. I can’t control the fruit, I can only control what I choose to feed my soul. Amen!
Great post, Jill, I agree!!
“I can’t control the fruit, I can only control what I choose to feed my soul” — YES AND AMEN, JILL!!
I could not have said it better myself.
I have to agree with Caitlin H, my life has lead me different ways and I’m struggling to be a women at work, home and off with the children. I want so badly to be the wife my son’s father needs.
It’s amazing when you are going through something, and you read the bible. The answers or guidance is right there!
As a new christian, wife, and mother, I am so happy that this was the reading on the day I finally decided to start this study. It is exactly what I needed. What a blessing!
Welcome Caitlin!! That’s great timing, isn’t it??
