Today is day 2 of studying Proverbs 31 now verses 15-18. If you haven't checked out the site I'm following along with it is HERE. What I got from this passage is that this woman is an extremely hard worker. She works hard for her family and for her home. Not only is she always making sure that the chores are done, food is made, cleaning is done but she is also looking for ways to improve and profit for her family! She is a very smart woman! She is smart in her investments and manages her money well. Not only that but she is patient with the process of it as well. Something that Courtney from women living well mentions in her post is to NOT be discouraged. This was not an overnight event but rather a lifetime of doing, a lifestyle. So when we feel like breaking down because we've been up all night tending to a sweet baby and than your toddler decides to wake up way too early, don't feel discouraged. Ask God for grace and for strength. ;) He will guide us.
Courtney reminds us in her post that seasons of life change, so whatever you are going through, is just a season. What seems like "forever" will pass .So I'll be honest that right now, it's difficult for me to juggle my time with a two month old and a two year old and cooking, cleaning and wanting to get a breath of fresh air with daily activities. She mentions that it is important to be home and do what we have to do to maintain our home. I constantly try and do too much in one day with being out and about, and when I finally make it back home and nothing is done, I get even more frustrated. So I know I need to embrace being home more often and doing my work for not only my family but for God as well.
I'm not going to lie, when on Women Living Well, they mentioned the word Diligence a couple times, I had to look it up. I know what it means to be a hard worker but a woman of diligence is not only hard working but also consistent with her hard work, and that is something to strive for. I want my lamp to never go out, and always be thinking of ways I can better the home and our situation for our family.
So my prayer for this night is for God to please give me the strength and patience I need for everyday. I want to be this virtuous and diligent woman He intends for me to be . I pray that I am given the wisdom to manage our finances well and be able to invest and profit in a way that is his will for me and my family.
