She Is The Proverbial Kind Of Girl

September 2, 2017

It was late. My baby was asleep and the husband was studying. But I needed to sweat. If only for 20-minutes. So I walked to the gym under big clouds and rain drops. And pondered my hearts desires.

Ideas only dream chasers and makers have. 

Work from home and care for my divinely given abode. But a tinge of guilt rolled over me. You can’t do both. Impossible. How dare you even want to!

I began to question the season I was in. And where God has lead me. A subtle “read Proverbs 31…” entered my spirit.

Proverbs 31


She very much wants to work with her hands. v13

She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants. v15

She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. v16

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. v17

She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. v22

She makes linen garments and sells them and supplies the merchants with sashes. v24

She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. v27


The Proverbial Kind Of Girl


She works. In and outside of her home. Wakes while it is still night, makes food for her family and servants. Servants! She had help. She creates, sells, buys and plants. She harvests in season. A smart business savvy woman, she is also physically strong and takes care of her body. Her bed has coverings, she sleeps. And knows the importance of rest. Her style is appropriate and put together. She utilizes her talents to care for other people and provide for her home. She fears the Lord. She loves her husband and her children. She takes care of her home.

The Proverbs 31 woman is not lazy.

These highlighted truths lit up my heart. Pouring confidence into my soul. I want to be she.

We can be she. The Proverbial kind of girl.
