Praise of a Good Woman
10 Who can find a virtuous woman?
For her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil
all the days of her life.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
30 Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works reveal her
As Christian women we are all aware of the above Scripture.
And we all desire to walk in the above perfection, no matter how PAINFUL....
And we walk around day after day wearing a mask of what or who, we are suppose to be. .
Mechanically we talk, laugh and perform at the right times, and none are aware of the gnawing grief behind the facade.
Is this you I am talking about?
At times, it has been me.
I have just returned from a wonderful Ladies Retreat..
A special time, a time preserved under the Heavens.
A time of leaving our homes and families behind so that we could take time to re-freshen our weary souls.
The teaching focus was on WOUNDS !
The Emotional, Mental and Spiritual WOUNDS of life.
As humans we all respond to kindness and understanding.
Sharing, talking and listening to each other, are all inspirational gifts of healing. Knowing someone understands and cares takes away the isolation of suffering in silence.
Our leader, an American lass gave her own testimony. It touched all present in various ways.
She spoke of applying the Armour of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) each morning in preparation for the daily assault from satan, to ward off, his fiery darts.
I used to do this. And will begin again!
You know, " we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers in high places." Ephesians 2:12
Everyone has a story, you the reader, have yours. Don't suffer alone. Find a counsellor and talk about it.
Jesus is the lover of your soul He cares.... just turn to Him in prayer. He is that close.
Together we share, Vickie, Crystal Mary, Daniella (my daughter)
