Strength and Dignity

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

"She is clothed with strength and dignity, 
and she laughs without fear of the future. 
When she speaks, her words are wise and she gives 
instruction with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness." 
(Proverbs 31:25-27)

Father, I long to grow in the beauty and courage of the Proverbs 31 woman. Give me the confidence that comes from trusting you, so that I may release all my worries and fears into your capable hands. I pray that you grant me wisdom and discernment so I never speak unkind words to those around me. Help me to be diligent in caring for my home and my family. I long to exhibit your strength and your dignity as I offer all that I do to you. In Jesus' precious name, Amen.

  7. I love the imagery in this line: "and she laughs at the days to come." Knowing that God is faithful to work in us and through us for His glory, we can trust Him to grant this desire.
