You are as badass as the proverbs 31 woman. Don’t feel pressured by her, feel challenged by her to raise to some real deal standards on life. You know, you got all that it takes already in you. You already are that woman. Or are standing or will be standing next to a gorgeous one as her. Let’s be intentional shall we and let’s look at what a boss of a woman you are.
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
You are far more worth than rubies. You have fine qualities and skills. And he will or has found you, that gorgeous man of yours, trust me. You are precious beyond. Don’t ever forget that love. If people aren’t willing to pay far more than rubies for you then wave them bye-bye. Isn’t it gorgeous when we get proposed he has done all this work to find a gorgeous ring with this diamond or ruby, cause he knows you are far more worth than it. And he is very aware of the cost of the ring he just gave you, but you are more than worth it to him. And that is it, love, if he is not willing to pay that price, putting a ring on your finger, real diamonds or not, don’t give him the place of calling you his woman. He doesn’t have the balls to be your man. So don’t give in.
Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
He trusts in her, I mean you might not always trust yourself, cause you are so hard on yourself. But babe you can trust yourself, others can trust you. He is lacking nothing, cause she is lacking nothing. You aren’t lacking anything love. Don’t believe when someone tries to be blaa blaa you are not good enough in this and that. And you should change this and that. No. You are lacking nothing. And thaa man has to have full confidence in you. Spur you on in all your fine qualities and skills. Every strong woman needs a strong man behind her. And don’t go all feminist on me. We need strong fathers and strong husbands.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
You choose what is right, even at times you doubt your ability to choose what is right in all the decisions thrown at you, but you know. You know what is the best option for you, even when that is not the easy option. You know what is right for the peeps around you. Deep down you know. Listen to your heart love, and stay in tune with the One. Be intentional all the days of your life.
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
Oh hey, fashionista. Choosing gorgeous fabrics. She isn’t afraid to make delight with her palms of her hands. I love how hands kind of look like palms. With her palms she worships Jesus. With her palms, she is rooted and fruitful in lush waters. With her palms, she works hard and makes magic. Don’t you love that wool is from sheep, Jesus the lamb and the 99 sheep he leaves to get the one. You are going to clothe people. Clothe people with truth. Clothe people with life. Clothe people with safety. Clothe people with love.
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
You are like a ship, not afraid to leave the shore and going into unfamiliar territories. You dive into the deep, and bring new into existence. She is like a merchant ship, not like a war ship. She brings the goodies, not the hatred and the wounded. She brings food to the table. She gives you something to enrich your life with. She feeds you, she raises you up instead of tearing you down. Just like you babe, you aren’t here to tear peeps down, you are here to raise them up. You bring bread to the table. You bring Jesus to the table. You bring Heaven on earth. You aren’t afraid to go into the rough waters. You aren’t afraid of the unfamiliar. Cause you know you see Jesus there. You know you see life happening there.
She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.
She arises early. She got things to do. She has a whole scala of people she is responsible for. Her family. Her friends. Her workers. She is not only building up her life, but for all the ones around her as well. Girl, you impact all the lives around you! She gives them, gives them, to eat so they can be strong, they can have life, they can grow. Providing life for the ones she loves. You are a spring of life, love. You are a boss lady, you have impact.
She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
Your girl boss buys a field. She buys it with the money from the fruit of her hands. Those rooted palms with which she worships Jesus and makes gorgeous pieces. Probs the most gorgeous royal garments. She picks out a field perfect to build a vineyard on. She plants with him a vineyard. A vineyard where they probably press the richest of wine. Through your hard works, Jesus blood is shown, love. Through your entrepreneurship and leadership, Jesus love for us is shown. Yes by being a girl boss you show Jesus. You are changing the world, love.
She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
Oh hey, fit girl. She girds her waist in strength, she strengthens her arms resolute. She probs put strength on her waist with a belt or a band. She put her boldness on to strengthen her core. She strengthened her arms, so she could be badass and work hard. Get yourself strong, love. So you can stand up and do your thing.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.
Her good profit and gain don’t stop at night, her lamp doesn’t go out at night. She still sees the light in the nighttime. She even has profit in the dark moments, she still sees the light in dark moments. Keep your lights on love, don’t wander in the dark. You live from overflow. You are prosperous. You are wealthy. You have a mindset of wealth. Keep your light on, keep Jesus on.
In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
She is turning wool into thread. She is turning the wool and flax she carefully chose out into strong thread. I imagine it to be like the three cords that aren’t easy to break. You thread people together. You thread dreams together. You thread families together.
Yes love, you are a girl boss, a fit girl, a gorgeous mom, a relationship goals wifey! You are it all, it is all inside of you. No striving, just being. Stay tuned for part 2.
Lots of love,
