Proverbs 31:27-31



I read this one, studied it, and man it is on point! Sometimes there's days where I read something out

of the Bible and it is just what I need to read/hear. All week I have been feeling kind of down to be

honest. Our situation isn't great, but we are moving along. I am very much so a "get out of the house,

everyday " type of person and when I can't because money doesn't allow, or the car doesn't work,  I

just get down. I have been feeling down all week and weekend and all I've been doing it feels like is

housework. Cleaning, cooking and tending the babies, all for it to look like it did before I did

anything, an hour after. It can be discouraging, but reading this has really brought me back up and

reminded me that I am doing a good job. I am right where I need to be for my family.


27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
3Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
All of these verses are key! This one for me is a little bit harder to break down, after reading the way Courtney of womenlivingwell.org did. Basically, the Proverbs 31 woman does all that she must to maintain her family, her home and herself and even the poor and needy. She does it all with a giving heart and we see in verse 28 that :Hey children arise and call her blessed; her husband also and he praises her;

I know that I LOVE getting compliments from my husband! It feels amazing when he says I'm doing 

a good job or I'm a great mom. That makes it all worth it to me. Him praising/complimenting me is 

kind of a nudge on the shoulder saying "Good Job". and that is exactly how God wants it to be in 

our home. It sure doesn't come easy, and it's not every day that I feel this way but man it's nice when 

it happens. ;) 

Verse 30 : Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be 

praised. 

In a world that is all about how you look and dress and cosmetic surgery and what not, it's pretty hard to stand out. This verse describes that the Proverbs 31 woman has so much more to offer than just her beauty and that is because she is a Daughter of God. She Fears the Lord and that makes her more valuable than any beauty or charm ever will. That is who I strive to be. That should be our role model, not worldly beauty. 

I've really enjoyed getting to study this chapter of Proverbs and journaling through my blog has helped keep me accountable and motivated to keep up with the readings. I hope that if you read this, you too enjoyed it and learned a few things like I did. Be sure to watch the video as Courtney gives a more in depth look into these verses. Thank you for reading and be sure to join on the right column to see more posts.;)
