The woman is the bedrock of society we all know that women are powerful, women are multi-taskers and women are able to do so much. Women carry a lot on their minds on a daily basis as well as wear many different hats.
Can women have it all? There are two general camps on this matter of having it all, it is either a definite yes or an empathic no.
I personally do not think the woman referred to in Proverbs 31 would have been mentioned if all her qualities were not attainable. Remember the bible is not a story book or fairytale it is real, it is the truth and it is for us to be encouraged. So lets look at all the realities of the P31 woman and see yourself in her.
What does Proverbs 31 say about you?
You are a capable, intelligent and virtuous woman.
You are more precious than jewels and your value is far above rubies or pearls.
You have the heart of your husband, he has confidence in you and he trusts you completely. You are his comforter and his encourager, and do him good all the days of your life.
