The Woman I WANT to be, But How???

The Woman Who Fears her LORD
Proverbs 31:10 ~31
10 An excellent wife who can find?  She is far more precious than jewels.
 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. 13 She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. 14 She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong. 18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night. 19 She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle. 20 She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes bed coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.

I'm thinking so much on this passage these days, and I feel like she was such a " Super Woman." but I'm praying that the Lord would give me His wisdom on how to be even a bit of what she was,. and how I can help our Little girl become a Proverbs 31 woman as she grows up too!
Would you pray with Me about how the Lord would grow us as woman more into His image and more like the Proverbs 31 Woman that I know that He desires us to be.
With the many readers out there I know we're each in different seasons of life.
Maybe your not married,  Your children are little and need lots of " Loving " or maybe their just about grown, or even maybe their out the door and have families of there own to care for. Your job as a Woman is NEVER done. you can always look for younger ladies that need your love and encouragement. to become that Proverbs 31 Woman!

I look forward to what the Lord is going to do this year in our lives for HIS glory!!!
