Her Worth Is Far Above Rubies

     Virtuous – having or showing high moral standards

     God created and designed men and women, and had specific expectations for us both. In a culture where finding a virtuous woman is a dime a dozen I really wanted to look and focus in on what exactly a virtuous woman is in God’s eyes. I want to be everything God created me to be and Proverbs 31:10-31 gives us the epitome of a virtuous woman. Here are a few key verses that give us a distinct picture;

Proverbs 31:10
Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;

So he will have no lack of gain.

12 She does him good and not evil

All the days of her life.

20 She extends her hand to the poor,

Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.

25 Strength and honor are her clothing;

She shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,

And on her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She watches over the ways of her household,

And does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;

Her husband also, and he praises her:

29 “Many daughters have done well,

But you excel them all.”

30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,

But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

     This woman who is described in Proverbs 31 is a wife that entrusts her husband with no reservations, she treats him generously and with love at all times.  No spitefulness is ever in her words or mind.  She wakes early and is eager to get started with the days work, she knows that her job in the household is important and is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.  She is eager and quick to help those that are in need, always facing tomorrow with a smile, no worry and no fear.  When she speaks, it is something worthwhile and something kind.  She does not gossip because she is too busy keeping her family productive.  Her children love and respect her and they become leaders, her husband sings her praises.

     1 Corinthians 1:4-6, “Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives.” (The Message)

     This is the type of wife I want to be when I am married, the type of woman I want to be now.  I want to do all things with joy and be the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman. I want this type of marriage, where I trust and respect my husband and where he sees me joyful and gentle, so he sings my praises and loves me endlessly.  This is the way that God created men and women to live together in harmony, the way one generation of women raises up the next.  When we as women can come together and be who God created us to be, I truly think men will step up to the plate and be the gentlemen and leaders that God created them to be.  Let us have higher standards for ourselves and those women around us, that we do not sit around and gossip but that we glorify God in all that we do, that we are so lost in Him that whomever we marry has to find God to find our heart.  Let us have the light of God shine so brightly through us, that those that know us, see us and wonder what is different.  I stand on the promises that God has made me and I will strive to become the woman He has created me to be.

     Virtuous women.  May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.

     Titus 2:1-6, “Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance. Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior.” (The Message)

     His word is truth. We are so Greatly Blessed, Highly Favored, and Deeply Loved.

    If any women, or men, can help me in my fight to restore my and Priscilla’s hearts and minds together again, I am open to suggestions. We both pursue the same path to honor GOD, and we are completely compatible and truly in love. But somehow, her family has convinced her that i am no good for her. The same thing happened in her last engagement, and i told her if that ever were to happen with me and her, i would fight for her. That is what im doing. I love my Princess Priscilla. I named a star in the Orion constellation Princess Priscilla after her and in reflection of our true love. My email is [email protected] and my phone number is 7707573416.

      Hi Nick, I can see that this turn in your relationship is really troubling to you. And that’s understandable when you have given a relationship all you got. One thing is for sure we are unable to control others regardless of how much we love them. After you have shared your concerns with her and prayed about it, simply trust God leaving the results up to Him. Can you release your expectations of this relationship to God? Can you believe that He will guide you as to what (if anything) to do next?

      Love with understanding, not judgment. I know you have more heart than giving up this easily. You know I am a good man, you know that. And you told me you loved me more times than I can count, as did I. We were promised to get married, and already called each other husband and wife in love. You said you would always fight for me, and never leave me or give up or run. But you’re not fighting, you’re giving in to what you think is the easy way out. As Jimmy Stewart said in Mr. Smith goes to Washington, “you fight harder for the lost causes than for any other”. You know I have a good heart, and I’m fighting for you, where some people might say its a lost cause. But I believe in you and us. We had true love, you just started listening to the wrong influence. Fight for me. I know you love me, even the last time we talked, you kept saying it over and over. And you know that I am a man that wants to be honorable to GOD. So how did you end up so deep in judgement? The wrong influence. Listen to your heart, before you tell me goodbye, and fight for me. Fight for me baby. Fight for us. I love you my Princess.

      Priscilla, I brought this very verse up to you. How I knew you were the one. And also Psalm 15:4 with it. Do you think promises and oaths are just empty? Our love was true, and honors GOD. But you have forgotten yourself, especially what proverbs 31:10-31 says. I love you. And you promised to love me for the rest of our lives. Does your word mean nothing and hold no honor? Listen to your heart and you will find the right answer. Don’t let the wrong influence change you from the good person you can be.
