There are a lot of things in my life that I don’t like, and they all start with me.
I am not happy with my commitment to my relationship with God
I do not feel as though I am engaged enough with my children.
I don’t like my attitude most day and most of that comes from the unnecessary stress I place on myself trying to reach a perfect I know i can never truly reach.
Many times I feel as though I am letting my family down by not being what I feel I should be.
I have spent the past couple of months praying over this and reading my Bible and other books. Proverbs 31:10-31 has become an inspiration to me, but the woman depicted in Proverbs 31 looked so daunting to try to imitate .
Then I found a book ……
I finished reading this book and thought, ‘I should do something like that’. And as I continue to pray over how I have been feeling I’m thinking that is exactly what I need to do. I need to look at the virtues of a Proverbs 31 woman and try to change the things in my life that I am not happy with.
I want to be a better wife, a better mother, a healthier woman, a stronger woman, a happy woman. I know that doing this will please God, and being in the will of God will always make me feel better because no matter what life is like, there is always a peace that comes with being in the will of God.
So, here is where I stand… over the next 10 months I am going to focus on a single virtue each month (though I will continue with the one from the month before). I know I will not be perfect, but any progress in bettering myself is my ultimate goal.
I may not do them in the order listed, but I will eventually get to them all.
Let’s see where God takes me!
