Are You Virtuous

 Am I a Virtuous Woman?


"Who can find a virtuous woman?"

Proverbs 31:10




Virtuous- having or showing high moral standards; chaste

Proverbs is so full of wisdom and guidance but my favorite chapter is hands down 31!
I love the hear about this wonderful yet mysterious woman we all know as the Proverbs 31 Woman.
She has no name, only beautiful godly characteristics.
She is strong, courageous, and diligent.
She is creative, dutiful, and resourceful.
She is intimidating, scary, and unattainable...or is she?

Let me say this- in a world where every advertisement promises you fast, quick, easy, this will be the complete opposite. This will require hard work, time, and discipline.

As you spend time gazing into God's Word, the light of His truth brightens your motivation to live your life for His glory.

You cannot get the finer things in life without a little investment. That truth rings loudest and truest  when it comes to the finer things in the spirit. God does not work on our fast time table, He does not answer all of our prayers quickly, and living for Him is certainly NOT easy. There is nothing microwavable about God!

Becoming like the Proverbs 31 Woman will take grit and determination. She is not unattainable and any one of us ladies can become like her. God would not put something in His Word that we could not attain. That would just be heartless and cruel.

Here are some tips in creating virtue:

Cultivate the desire- you have to want it. You can't just say you want to be of good character, you need to pray for it. You don't just get good character, you have to ask for it!! Ask God to create a desire in your heart to become more like Him.

Give it time- don't be to hard on yourself.  Nothing great ever happens overnight. Noah did not build the ark overnight, Moses was not able to lead the children of Israel out of slavery overnight, and God Himself did not create the world overnight!
  • Time reading God's Word- Making daily scripture reading is not only a good way to learn good character, it is essential to producing the foundation for the building blocks of becoming a Proverbs 31 woman. As you spend time gazing into God's Word, the light of His truth brightens your motivation to live your life for His glory.
  • Time memorizing scriptures- This right here is the hardest part for me. But its helps when you are in a place of your life when you needs those words to bring living waters into your storm of drought and famine. When you memorize the Word you are also fulfilling the Word!!
  • Time with other Godly women- Women need encouragement and fellowship with other women who are going through the same things you are. You cant go at this alone, no one can. Life is not meant for you to spend alone. Producing virtue and character is tough, and an example is always nice. When you get down and think you can't do it anymore, those friends are always there to pick you right back up.
 I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You - Psalm 119:9




It's time to rise up and declare that we are going to have a high moral standard in a world where there is no moral standard. I know it's hard, but we have to fight for the things that are important. Our daughters need to see us living a life of integrity, our granddaughters need us to pave the way, our sisters in Christ need to see that we are not afraid of living a holy life pleasing to God. Let us challenge the behaviors of this world but shining bright in a dark world.
