Well, I've been doing a little soul searching this morning; good for Sundays. I was trying to figure out where my life seemed to be headed. In what direction shall I go? There are so many! I don't hide it here, this is something I'd be in constant conversation about with my Lord. But I think that since a "blog" is categorically defined as a "web log" that I should try to hash some of this stuff out right here.
Unfortunately I cannot divulge all that is going on in my life at the moment....it's like one of those things...if I told you I'd have to hunt you down and kill you....not really....but you know what I mean. I do however have a lot on my plate at the moment....I don't think that will end any time soon. The best part? Well, it's all pretty good stuff!
Having too many good things is actually a problem. Which good thing to persue? Which good thing to cut out? You can see where this is going....Well, in all those conversations I was talking about...I remembered a friend of mine told me to study Proverbs 31..."Hymn to a good wife." If you haven't read the MESSAGE version of vs. 10-31 of Proverbs 31....then I suggest you do. It is absolutely freeing to me! Even if you are NOT a Christian...you would have to be hard pressed not to find some helpfull information there.
It is so refreshing to me to know that God doesn't expect us women to be retiring, servile, and entirely domestic. He wants us to be strong, dignified, and accomplished. We are manufacturers, importers, managers, realtors, farmers, seamstresses, upholsterers, and merchants! Many of which I am! YAY!!!
However...we need to keep our priorities straight with our families and homes as well. We also need to show compassion for those in need and who are hungry. We cannot achieve all that is listed in Proverbs 31....that is not the point. It is more to show you a guide...a way to channel yourself into service for Him. Are you game? What kind of Proverbs 31 woman are you? I'd love to hear your comments on this one! I can't wait to hear from you!!!
