The Proverbs 31 Wife: The Secret Journal

New year. New neighborhood. New city. New season. The Royal Family just moved to their new home, The Windsor Palace Tower. And in the midst of unpacking, sorting and decluttering; the Queen found her old, shabby diary.

June 6, 2010

“I’ve been thinking lately if, yes, am I ready?” +

I was 21 years old then. “…Young, still young according to the world’s standards to settle down and heed the call of being a wife.” + King and I were time zones apart; we weren’t engaged yet, but I knew, I just knew precisely where our relationship was heading – MARRIAGE! (Yes, relationships should have clarity!) It was exactly a year before we got married and it was the day I knew I was ready.

Hope Unveiled

How did I exactly arrive to that conclusion? I secretly took a challenge to look at Proverbs 31 in a fresh angle and see how the so-called “Proverbs 31 Wife” lived her life for God and her family. I had questions, sure. But, I was certain (and still am) that “God has a plan, and He will put me where I will bloom and be effective in what I will do.” +

So today, I’m just wondering, maybe there’s a reason why this 7-year-old journal appeared from nowhere. Maybe there are some young women out there who were like me, and are already thinking about settling down and building a family early. Or maybe some women who might be simply at their crossroads. Or maybe I just need to be reminded again. But whatever it is, my hope is that you and I will be able to know ourselves and God better through my 21-year-old thoughts.

JOIN ME in the next 4 weeks as I attempt to revisit my journey, and uncover truths and revelations that I’m sure are still applicable today. I hope that this series will lead to a year, an entire lifetime, of change, and “prepare me (and you) for a greater gain and help us become that blooming Proverbs 31 Wife (or woman) of Noble Character.” +

I’m just wondering. What is one important reminder/lesson that you can write today that you want your future self to read again and again? Comment them below and you might bag a “Count Your Blessings Prayer Journal” at the end of the series. (Indulge us, please)
