My search for online Bible studies brought me to OBS P31. I then read Proverbs 31 and I sooooo wanted to be that virtuous woman. I immediately signed up for the Bible Study with OBS P31 and it has been an amazing journey thus far. This is my third study and in ‘Limitless Life by Derwin L. Gray’ we are tasked in chapter nine to create our Life Vision and I went back to read the Proverbs 31. This drove me to base my Life Vision on the virtuous woman represented in Proverbs 31. My heart desires to be like the woman described in these bible verses. She is clothed with such an amazing strength and dignity that I want to follow suit and live my life in the same manner. We have five questions that need answering to make this Life Vision come alive. So here I go…diving head first into these questions…:-)
Question 1 : How do you want to be seen in 10 years?
To be seen as a woman that loves the Lord completely, fully and without reserve!
To be seen as a God fearing woman. One whose WORDS and ACTIONS display this.
Question 2 : What do you want to be known for in 10 years?
To be loved and adored by both my husband and children. To be known as a woman of worth that strove tirelessly for the Lord in my household and for His Kingdom. To be known as a woman who did this with complete dedication and no complaints. To be a woman who put a wholesome meal on the table and had time for both my husband and children when they arrived home from their places of education and work. To be a woman that did not have idle hands but worked hard to bring in an income and then used that income to help maintain the running of our home and to help others.
She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
– Proverbs 31:13-18
Question 3 : What do you want your family to be like?
A close knitted family, who loves the Lord and each other and have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. A family that attend church, bible studies and other areas of ministry which allow us to be enriched by the Word of God… and then leading lives that clearly depict these attributes. A family without secrets, having honest open conversations so that we can support each other through trials. A family that brings everything to God in prayer. And when our family enlarges due to the people we bring into our lives via partners chosen and friends, that they are godly ones.
Question 4 : What makes your heart sing (from a sacred vocation perspective)?
To be a prayer warrior…I’ve seen the blessings and miracles flow from the hand of God so many times when you pray without ceasing and put complete faith in God to deliver. I love bringing others to the throne room of mercy and grace!
To be an encourager…to help build them up and bring a smile to their faces.
To lead a Women’s Ministry here in Nuremberg. I have already started one here…we are friends, a pretty dynamic group as we come from different countries. There is no formal running women’s ministry at our church and this is the reason for me wanting to embark on such a venture.
Question 5 : Who in your life will tell you the truth about yourself?
– My husband
– My sister
