Once again, it’s time for Five Minute Friday. What’s that, you ask? Five Minute Friday is a fun social blogging adventure. Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker choses one word, and we, the FMFParty, get five minutes to write, unedited, on that one word. Want to join us? Head on over to the FMF page at Lisa-Jo’s site!
Five Minute Friday (6) SHE
My first thought…SHE can’t be serious?!?!?! THAT’s the word???? Alrighty then.
SHE can be anyone in the Bible. There are so many women of the Bible that God uses to be our role models. Probably the most popular (at least in my studies) is the Proverbs 31 Woman. Unnamed…yet SHE.
SHE is who we want to be. Who we model ourselves after. She keeps her family well fed, well clothes, warm. healthy…and they love her endlessly for it. She is worth far more than rubies.
So often, I see laziness around me. Women saying to just rest in God….but I see it differently. I see God calling us not to rest, but to be SHE. Proverbs 31 never says she watches TV and rests and lets her husband care for the kids. The Proverbs 31 Woman is diligent…intentional…and fulfilled on all levels. This is the woman I want to be.
