Does the mention of the P 31 woman make you shake in your boots, wondering if you can ever measure up to those high standards?
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.
28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
Those two little verses say so much! They speak volumes in terms of all we would like to give to our families. And for those of us women that have been called into ministry we take this mandate even more to heart, trying to balance it all effectively and with some finesse.
In my case lately I have been under a very taxing trial and this has added baggage on to my already carefully sectioned task plate.
But the one point I return to over and over is the fact that GOD is in charge so it’s up to HIM to make sure it all works out for my good and the fact that I understand that I am not called to manage task ultra effectively but instead I’m asked by GOD to be mindful and intentional in everything HE allows me to touch.
The Savior once reminded me of the fact that there is nothing, no task or deadline that is more important than my attitude.
With this fact carefully kept in focus I am able to bring a standard to each task that I attend and everyday moments with my family can be made into celebration/ focal points of seeking the Divine and Sacred ( Jesus Christ) more clearly!
Application Point of Focus: The natural enemies to sacred moments being clearly defined, experienced, perceived and celebrated is to be intensely focused on self, rushed and wallowing in the spirit of impatience. These are the areas in which asking for God‘s direct intervention in the form of revelation will open up new avenues of growth so that the energy that is being used in the frustration cycle can be released to live more richly and fully in the moment.
Power Verse: Psalm 90:14
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all of our days.
Dear God, I pray You would cleanse my heart of all that is not of You. Pour out Your Spirit afresh in my life and wash away all negative attitudes and feelings. Renew my soul so that it is steadfast and strong. Purify my heart pouring into me Your purity and holiness. Align my thoughts with Yours so that the mind of Christ is clearly manifest in me. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me so that I can become the whole person You made me to be.
In the matchless name of Jesus Christ we pray… Amen!
