Day 19 ~ Honor



PHOTO CREDIT

Proverbs 31:25  Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

Yoga pants, t-shirt and a ponytail. Yep, that's how I'm clothed most days. Somehow I see the Proverbs 31 woman looking a lot different than me. She's put together with every hair in place, a light touch of make up and a pretty blouse without coffee stains or spit-up shoulders. But maybe the descriptions of her have much more to do with her attitude than her dress. Her beauty within spills over and radiates to create an outward beauty. 


She stands tall but is humble. She is majestic in her simpleness. 


She is strong in her convictions and isn't afraid of hard labor but her hands are gentle and she cries with those who are in need. 


She is dignified but not proud. 


She is gracious, full of integrity, kind, giving....ah, the list goes on! I think that all these characteristics are simply proof that she is a daughter of the King as she shines HIS majesty!


Oh, Lord, help me to start each day by clothing myself with you. May I be filled with strength and honor not so that I can look all "put together" (even in my yoga pants) but so that you alone may be glorified.

  1. This is such a great post, and fantastic reminder that we must rely on Him to help us clothe ourselves as the Proverbs 31 woman does. Some days it is so hard to resemble her, but His mercies are new every morning and I am beyond thankful for that. Thank you for posting.

  2. Absolutely beautiful words. I think about Colossians and the wardrobe described there - all heart-garments. Thank you for the reminder today!
