Its incredibly hard to have the endeavors of becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman brand while living in the era of the Kardashians, Roses and the countless reality stars who are glorified. What does your brand say about you? I hear and see so many women misuse the term “Proverbs 31 Woman.” The real definition of a Proverbs 31 Woman is the spiritual cloth of honor and strength she wears. This is a woman I fight to be daily. It’s a process in becoming this woman it definitely doesn’t happen over night. This woman has been made and broken into perfection.
This woman has gone through the ringer in order to gain much honor and strength. Like with any reward a great sacrifice was given. The Proverbs 31 Woman is the one who walks with purpose with every intention of meeting her destiny. She understands that her worth and calling in the spirit that prepares her naturally. Every step is ordered by God so she cannot fail. She has favor with God and man so every decision is ordained to work for her good. This miraculous woman doesn’t break but bends. On the contrary, she only bends when she is bowing before her King because honor and humility goes hand and hand. Her beauty is a walking testimony. Her voice carries wisdom. She welcomes you with an inviting smile and a contagious laugh. She speaks kindly because her words hold POWER that has been granted to her.
As you can see its not easy being this woman consistently. This is a woman that walks by faith and not by sight. She can’t grow faint nor weary because to much is at stake. If she quits someone who is waiting for her quits too. She understands that this life she is living isn’t just about her but about the others counting on her to step into grace so they can do their part. Let’s be frank now. Proverbs 31:25-31 says,
“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
This brand is rarely the goal. Looking the part is half the battle but actually living the brand is winning the war. I’ve heard so many young girls say, “Being a Proverbs 31 Woman means you look old and covered up.” I beg to differ. You can be trendy, stylish and that fashionista while still standing on the morals and values of a Proverbs 31 Woman. That brand alone holds major weight. You don’t have to show it all to get it all. This woman dresses effortlessly and her confidence is recognized. The way you carry yourself naturally is only a glimpse of what is going on spiritually. Your Proverbs 31 Woman brand should beat you to the door before you enter. That reputation should precede you.
