A four letter word.

A four letter word.  A teeny tiny four letter word.  Fear.

I found this photo I took years ago just recently.  The find came at the perfect time.  So appropriate for this week.  We just completed week 4 of the Good Morning Girls bible study.

Wow…4 weeks.

These 4 weeks went by so quickly that I can hardly believe it. Week one brought a ton of emotions.  I was nervous that I wouldn’t have any time at all to even complete this now I’m looking forward to it on a daily basis. I’m finishing it before anything else, early in the morning before my kids are up.  Something I’ve wanted to do for a while. This study helped me make that happen!

This little word tries to hold me back. A small four letter word.  Fear.

It didn’t hold me back from this. I’m looking forward to even more adventures now that I’m staring fear in the face and walking the other way.

Ladder to growth.

Am I extraordinary? Am I a woman of character? Am I a priceless jewel to my husband?

Midway through the second week of the learning about the Proverbs 31 woman and this woman is so far up on a pedestal I may never reach but I’m creeping up on her.  I’m on rung two of this journey and learning that this woman is astounding!  Will I ever be so noble, so rare?   Many of us already ‘know’ about the Proverbs 31 woman. By that I mean we’ve probably heard of her but have we studied intently about her to promote change within?  To be completely transparent, I honestly have not.

I am loving every minute this study. I’m struggling less and less to find the time during my already busy day to make this happen.  I’m making the time! It’s true that when you truly have the desire you find the time.  The deeper we delve into learning about her the more I want to know, the more more questions I have.  Creating a hunger for the Word with a group of Godly women is something I have craved for a while now.

Are you craving too? Are you looking to work on yourself, change your life? Are you looking to become a better wife, daughter, sister, mom, friend?

It is not too late to get started. It’s a 3-month journey up this ladder and we’re only at rung number two.

If you are reading this and feeling a nudge or feeling a little sick to your stomach after reading this it’s not heartburn from breakfast. It’s God saying He’s ready for you!!

Here we go…my first attempt!

Studying Proverbs 31 : 7-9 yesterday really got me thinking.  Thankless Thursday was a post about thankless jobs that we as wives and mothers do every day. Yes these things need to be done. Yes these things are usually something we don’t love. Who loves cleaning the fridge? Who really loves cleaning a toilet?  I admit that I love having these things clean but the act of cleaning them doesn’t excite me at all.

Proverbs 31 : 7-9  Open your mouth for the dumb (unable to speak for themselves) for the rights of all who are left desolate and hopeless.  Open your mouth, judge righteously and administer justice for the poor and needy.

This two verses prompted a great discussion within our study group. What do the verses mean? How are they applicable in our lives? We spoke about those in our lives that genuinely need us to speak for them.  Who are these people? The homeless, the weak, our children, the lost?

As you meditate on these verses please leave a comment. I would love to hear another perspective on these verses.  Needless to say talking about some of the things I do daily that I wish someone would thank me for made me realize I should be thankful for having those things. Hello humble pie!  I am thankful I have a toilet to clean, a yard to tend to and dirty diapers to change. No these aren’t glamorous by any means but they are part of the life I love.
