A Capable, Intelligent, and Virtuous Woman...

  • "considers a [new] field before she buys or accepts it [expanding prudently and not courting neglect of her present duties by assuming other duties]; with her savings [of time and strength] she plants fruitful vines in her vineyard." -Prov. 31:16 (Amplified)
  • "She tastes and sees that her gain from work [with and for God] is good; her lamp does not go out, but burns continually through the night [of trouble, privation, or sorrow, warning away fear, doubt, and distrust]." -Prov. 31:18 (Amplified) - She is consistent, firm

These two verses were just really powerful for me this morning; reminding me to consistently take care of my responsibilities, carefully consider before adding additional responsibilites, and to recline into the Holy Spirit so that I can consistently stand firm and strong.
