Wholeness from Proverbs 31 (pt. 2)

On Monday, Brenda shared about Proverbs 31 and how connected our body, mind and spirit are and how the scriptures in Proverbs 31 reveal that. Today, we encourage you to take a look at Proverbs 31 (verses 10-31) yourself (see below)! 
As you read, consider:
What part(s) of my three-part being are these scriptures referring to?
What changes can I make today to encourage growth in one of these areas? 
What is the promise laid out in these scriptures that I can stand on in order to grow?  
10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?

She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

13 She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night.

19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm[c] clothes.

22 She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.

28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.

    Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
Be encouraged, dear one, that Proverbs 31 is not a standard to try and achieve, but a promise to lean on. You are GRACED to be everything He has called you to be! There is GRACE to do everything He has called you to do.
And by faith, we stand on this Word to walk in all of it.
We love you dearly, sisters.
