Who can find a virtuous wife?

Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12

This scripture has always been one that I keep in my heart, hoping that someday I can be that woman. Even when I was a young teenager, I read about the proverbs 31 woman and wanted to do everything I could to become that woman. As I look back on our nearly 3 years of marriage I see some times I was that woman, but far too often I am not. I can be selfish and thoughtless. I can be overly emotional, the opposite of a strong support a man needs. I have been praying, reading and seeking God on how I can become a better wife. I feel like I try so hard and then I fail. I find that I get so disappointed in myself so easily it seems. I am so thankful to have a loving, forgiving and encouraging husband. Neither of us are perfect… but God has brought us together to support each other, especially in our times of weakness. I’m thankful he gives us his grace… his empowerment… to be the spouses that we are supposed to be. As the scripture above says… I want to be the one the heart of my husband safely trusts. I desire to do him good all the days of our lives. Some days I will fail…. but I am thankful that God gives us a new start every day! Today I am thankful that I can serve my husband by raising up a Godly daughter… by managing our household… and by praying for him.

Have a great day!!
