Proverbs 31 Woman-Bible Study

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

I cannot even begin to tell you how blessed I have been in the past 3 days by our Bible study. When I first became interested in this study I knew I wanted to be able to do it with other Christian ladies.  I created a group inviting about 7 or 8 friends & family to be apart of it.  The response was so great that I decided to invite more ladies to join us and now our group is up to 23.  In just these 3 days, the Lord has used all of the women in our group to open my eyes up to things that I wouldn't have seen without each of them.  They have humbled me, prayed for me, and encouraged me by their words.  I'm honored to be the group leader.


Thus far in our study we have read Proverbs 31:1-6.  Proverbs 31 are the words from King Lemuel's mother advising him on how to be a good king & giving him the characteristics of a godly wife.  Verses 1-9 focus on warning Lemuel of the many temptations & sins he will face as a king--loose women & alcohol. And then it goes into what he should do to be a man & king of honor.  Lemuel's mother is preparing him to be a husband suitable for the Proverbs 31 woman and a godly man.  These first 6 verses have really spoken to me about the type of wife, mother & woman I should be-diligently praying for my daughter & husband.  Offering godly advice & being an example to Emma & our future children, and preparing them to be wife/husband & mother/father one day.

Next week we will dive in to the characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman, and I cannot wait to see what God reveals to me in these scriptures.  Please pray for me as I lead this wonderful group of women in our study, and that God changes hearts & lives throughout it, mine included.
