Ah, yes. That part of the Bible that describes the ideal woman — lol. None of us wives truly enjoy this passage, for we always fall short. The best we can hope for is to grow closer to this ideal, year by year. Sometimes I feel like I have grown by leaps and bounds… and other days (or other moments) I feel STUCK, unable to GROW forward, and disappointed in my progress. Still, as long as we are WILLING to let Jesus heal us and remake us in His image, bit by bit, we will all grow forward. In our faith and faithfulness we are destined to become more and more pleasing to God. I pray for all the women who read this little prayer blog. I pray for your HEART, your MIND, and your SPIRIT. May you find that PEACE that surpasses all our human understanding. May you develop strength in your spirit that allows you to stand strong against all adversity, being founded on the Rock that is Christ. May you stop looking for your OWN value, and instead realize that your TRUE value lies in what HE is creating within you, for His glory. Amen.
