There is no doubt our society has hit an all-time high with doing; doing this, doing that, doing whatever. It didn’t hurt that the feminist movement aided in turning people into materialized robots. Give mothers and their adult daughters a longer to-do list than they already have.

Women should assert themselves aggressively and powerfully avoiding any natural instincts of being a “woman.”  Women’s lib decided listening, being open hearted to the hurting or exercising passivity at any length should be denounced.

Proverbs 31 is the design God gave to us womenfolk.  The key is balance.

God gave women the ability to listen well, receive others in need and honor God in everything they accomplish whether that is staying at home or working outside of the home according to his will.

He wants us to be the shoulder for others to cry on, enjoy the love and blessings that come with a family and use her wisdom as God leads in the world market.  God never told us not to work outside of the home but when our family, husband and/or children suffer at the hands of one who chooses to place it first, it should be addressed. But, he also never told us to go to the extreme where we end up “burned out” or exhausted.

When we allow God to lead us, give us direction and bring out in us the talents he has placed in us, he will provide whatever we need.

He has given Godly women the ability to hold positions in his church to further his gospel.  With the need in the world as it is, church work can be infinite.  Even then and maybe more so in this extension of liberty we need to set examples of stability and steadiness.  It is all too easy to get caught up in the activities of the giver instead of spending time alone with him.

Having had the opportunities to do all of the above, I can tell you success is not found behind a desk, filling up a large apartment complex with renters, or delivering lunches to office complexes. While these are achievements in their own right, there is no satisfaction like a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

The victory lies within his presence opening up a world most people never find.  Within that domain are the secrets and solutions to all of the questions, requests and essentials we need to do whatever he created us to do.  That can and should lead us to the vocation(s) he has trained us to accomplish.proverbs 31

Finally, the Proverbs 31 woman reminds me of the “gal” who has found and lives in the center of God’s will.

And that my readers produces winners.

  1. The following comment was sent to me via email through linkedin by a woman named Thelma Moore.

    I welcome all comments and appreciate that Ms. Moore took the time to read my post and respond.

    “You really have no respect for the women who’ve gone before. Who won you the right to vote. Who proved that women’s brains weren’t too small to handle stress or complex problems. That was the logic for not “allowing” women to go to engineering or medical schools. By that logic football players would be much smarter than little nerds. You are entitled to your opinion, but you should show some respect.”

  2. Thank you Cathy, for another wonderful message. Christ-centered, heart-centered. God bless you.

    • Tahlitha, Thank you. All but one person has agreed with me as this person disguised herself. I enjoyed writing these and God led me through it. I am so glad you are back!

      • Thanks for the encouragement Cathy, your blog, among others truly reach for and touch at the heart of Jesus’ message to us all.

        It’s a pleasure to read your blog with a deeper hope in Christ, the Word.

  3. Reblogged this on Tricia's Journal Jots Blog and commented:
    My favorite sentence in this blog post is, “…there is no satisfaction like a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.” To this I say a hearty “Amen!”
