The Virtuous Woman


When I got married at age 18, everything was so different for me. I didn't know how I was supposed to be a good wife. My life gave a big turn; all I remember was trying to be a good wife for the first 2 years of my marriage. I didn't know where to begin. I struggled for a while asking myself, “how can I be a good wife?'. One day I was reading one of my favorite books from the bible the book of Proverbs. I was reading chapter 30 just about to finish when I started reading chapter 31. The Lord truly spoke to me that day. The answer to a question I was looking for was finally before my eyes!! God is so good, he truly speaks to us through he's word. This is what Proverbs chapter 31:10-31 says:


 10 Who[b] can find a virtuous[c] 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.

For all the christian moms and even for the moms that are not christian, in order to be a good wife, mom, daughter, friend and ect.. One has to primarily fear the Lord. If you become fearful of the Lord you will be a virtuous woman. The word of God is so perfect and sweeter than honey. In verse 30 it says that if you fear the Lord you will be praised. What exactly does this means, you may be asking yourself. Well, when you learn to fear the Lord you will do everything with love, care, and passion. You will not have to brag about how good you cook, or how well you maintain your home spotless, because your own work and effort will speak for itself, and your own family will say what a great woman. 

If you haven’t accepted The Lord Jesus Christ in your heart, and confessed your sins to him, than there is no way you can fear him.

If you want to accept Jesus Christ in your heart, say this prayer.
Heavenly Father, I come before you asking you for forgiveness of all my sins, I asked you to please cleanse me with the blood of Jesus Christ. I ask you to please come into my heart and reign in my life. I ask you please accept me as your child and that you write my name in the book of life (say your name). Mark me with the promise of the Holy Spirit. Change my mind, my heart, and my soul. In the name of Jesus Christ AMEN!

If you have done this prayer, CONGRATULATIONS!! You are now a son/daughter of God read the bible and live a Godly life. I advice you to find a Christian church that believes in the divine trinity.
