good & useful {day 31}

So, Proverbs 31 is {mostly} all about that woman... you know the one. 
 ~"The Proverbs 31 Woman"~

She is often tossed out as an unattainable super-woman. 

She is labeled as a product of her time ... not something today's woman could ever hope to become.

I have studied these verses quite a bit... though I am not finished. I have written about 14 verses and have 7 to go.

While I do understand that Solomon's mother {Bathsheba!} is giving him advice on the type of wife he should seek, I also believe that even 
~"The Proverbs 31 Woman"~
                           was not
~"The Proverbs 31 Woman"~
 from the very beginning... 

She struggled and learned. 

She desired to be good and useful.

She was an immature girl with dreams. 

She was a young married lady with lessons to learn. 

She was a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend. 

She was a sinner waiting on a Savior to be born. 

She had struggles. 

She knew hardship. 

But what set her apart... 
was her heart.


  1. Love this way of looking at a Proverbs 31 woman. I often feel intimidated by the kind of woman that is described in that passage. Love to look at the fact that she was learning along the way.. just like us!

    1. thank you for stopping by again! so glad this thinking could encourage you! i think that realizing that no one can just automatically know how and do all those things at once... puts the whole passage in a different perspective. and i have enjoyed looking at it that way! :) still daunting, but not overwhelming.


I am so glad you stopped by!
Thank you for taking time to say HI or share a thought. It's nice to know someone is out there {smiles}, and comments are always appreciated.
