As the saying goes thank God in advance. I am very hopeful for this year and know that God is going to make some great and wonderful changes in my life. I was browsing through my Facebook feed and noticed a status from a page that I liked over 2 and half years ago. As I was sitting there reading it I realized I didn’t just like that page, but 2 other similiar pages as well. These pages are for encouraging Godly marriages. I was just amazed to believe that after many years of having negative views on marriage my views had went from negative to positive. I realize that at the moment that when those negative views were embedded in my head at the age of 3-4 years old, God was already blessing my future marriage. Through these pages and prayer God is developing and molding into the Godly woman and future wife that He has created me to be. I’m just so hopeful now and just thank God for what He has in store for me and my future. Gotta thank Him in advance!
(Proverbs 31:10-31) 10 Whocan find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry 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,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over 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 daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
