Be The Woman Your Man Needs

Word-Filled Wednesday: Proverbs 31:29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Today’s verse is absolutely my favorite verse from the Proverbs 31 passage! We are on the home stretch of our Proverbs 31 woman series – with just 3 weeks left to go! For the last 21 weeks we have seen the Proverbs 31 woman pour her life out for her family – from caring for her husband, children, servants and to even caring for the poor. We’ve watched her rise early, stay up late, plant a vineyard, sew her own clothes, her family’s clothing, the tapestries […]

Now we come to verse 21 which is all about preparation! “When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all […]

I Am the Donkey

I am taking a break this week from our Proverbs 31 series to focus on the message of Easter. Next week I will return to this series. Word Filled Wednesday:I Corinthians 3:5-7 “What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe – as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So, neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who makes things grow.” As I reflected this past Sunday on John 12:13, Palm Sunday […]

Word Filled Wednesday: Proverbs 31:20 “She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.” NKJV It’s week 12 of our Proverbs 31 series and I’m loving it!!!

Is the Proverbs 31 Woman For Real?

Have you ever wondered – who is this nameless, perfect woman that Solomon writes about in Proverbs 31? Is she for real? The answer is “no” and “yes”. Let me explain.

She went through the alphabet one letter at a time giving him attributes that he was to seek out in his future wife. Using the alphabet in this manner made it easier for her son to remember […]

Word Filled Wednesday: Job

My mom’s brother, who lives in Colorado, sent me this photo in an email along with this message: “An elk calved it’s baby right by our front door yesterday!! How cool it was. After about 6 hours the mother came back and the baby was up and walking and ran out to greet “mom”. Way cool to see!!” Can you believe an elk had her baby right by their front door? That stuff just doesn’t happen in Ohio!! This photo immediately made me think of Job. At the end of the book of Job, God speaks to him out of […]
