As a virtuous woman your body, is the Temple of the Holy Spirit and you are responsible for taking care of it. Scripture References: (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:16-18).
A Christian woman’s body belongs to the Lord, is a member of Christ, and is the Holy Spirit’s temple. If Christ is in you, you will treat your body as if it is His temple. You will have enough respect for yourself and the Lord, that you won’t allow anything or anyone to defame your body. Having that respect shows that you are responsible and will allow God to work through you as He desires.
As The Proverbs 31 Woman you must strive to obtain your strength on a daily basis. Not just any strength, but your spiritual, mental and physical strengths.
Being tired can affect your life, spiritually, mentally and physically; you are not as sharp and can be easily deceived. Tiredness can also affect your prayer life, your best witnessing to others, and your walk in the Fruit of the Spirit. Scripture reference: (Galatians 5:22-23). As you walk with the Spirit in control, these fruits grow every day, until one day you look around and they are all active in your life.
Proverbs 31:15, speaks to how you should prepare to obtain spiritual strength. Your day should start, by reading God’s word, praying, praising and worshipping.
You are not to be a sleepy-head. You should go to bed early so you can start your day early. Doing this will help you to better prepare, for school, or work.
For your mental strength, you will not only read the word of God, but you will meditate throughout the day. As a Proverbs 31 Woman, in addition to the bible, you should have an interest in reading positive books, (Personal and Self Development), to keep your mind positive.
I would like to think, that you are abreast of what goes on around you, in knowing what goes on around you, will help give you the opportunity to communicate intelligently and effectively with anyone.
Now let’s help to prepare you to obtain physical strength, getting the proper exercise is a start, or you can gain this strength through your passions (spiritual gifts).
In addition, when it comes to physical exercise you can accomplish it in many different ways: walking dancing, doing aerobics, playing a sport (tennis, golf, etc.), or riding your bicycle. You may choose do exercise alone or may choose to work out with someone. Have Fun!
Imagine, if your spiritual, mental and physical strengths are in check, your life will be less stressful, more confident, and you will have relief from daily tensions. Hence, you will be motivated to accomplish more and most importantly, you will enjoy and have the sense of peace with everything you set out to do.
Let’s be like the Proverbs 31 Woman and Just Go For It!
