The Proverbs 31 Woman

As a single woman, who identifies as a Christian, I have heard of the Proverbs 31 woman many times. However, I must admit she intimidates me, challenges me, and angers me all in the same breath. I will admit that I do not know much about her, having not given myself over to her study, as she is not one many pastors or teachers prefer to focus on. No, mostly they reference her, typically on Mother’s Day or when they want to uphold the Biblical standards of what a woman should be, but often is not, based upon their judgements.

This month, I plan to journey through what it means to be a Proverbs 31 woman…that is single. I plan to search within and understand what God seeks to develop and grow in me as laid out in His word. My goal is to share this journey with those of you who read this blog.
If you have studied or delved into Proverbs 31 for any length of time, what struck you the hardest as a woman?

  1. Sara, wow!! I think this is an awesome idea. I really like to study this chapter too. One of my favorite verses in the chapter is verse 12, "She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life." THe word "all" is the word that sticks out to me. It doesn't just mean she brings her husband good after she's married to him or even after she meets him but ALL the days her life. Meaning the days before…these days of being a single woman. Everyday of my life even the days before I meet or know my husband I should be striving to bring him good. It's a challenge and a hard one. Thanks, Sara , for this reminder to study God's word on how to be a Godly, single woman!

  2. Jenn,Thank you for your openness and awesome revealing of verse 12. You are an encouragement and blessing! Please continue to provide your insights into this study, as I know you are a wise woman in His Word.
