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?
