Hey Sis, let's talk about the Proverbs 31 woman

"Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her toungue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but you excellest them all. Favour is decietful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth Yahawah, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates."-Proverbs 31:25-31

Lots of our Hebrew woman call themselves a Proverbs 31 woman. They say this in order to uplift themselves and also tell other Sisters to also emmulate the Proverbs 31 woman.  Yet the BIGGEST thing that I see and hear from other women, especially on social media, is how they want their husbands to help them, especially with household chores.  I saw it again this morning and i'm just shaking my head. 

Sis, can you truly call yourself a Proverbs 31 woman if you're not able to do basic household chores?

Before you answer that, let's go back and reread the chapter. It's acutally a description by Lemuel's mother, who gave this description to her son on what type of woman that he should marry. Break it down even further, she mentions how the Proverbs 31 woman not only runs her household (this woman had staff to direct and children to raise) but she also had work OUTSIDE her home. So not only did she work outside the home, but she wasn't asking her husband for assistance. Her husband was praising her because she kept everything running and had a nice home for their family. 

I say all this to say...Stop complaining about your job! "You weren't expecting that!" . But I'm serious...if you're feeling overwhelmed...take a breather. Reevaluate. Then start again. You're going to do this multiple times before you get it right. If you're truly that Proverbs 31 woman, it's your job to figure the small stuff out. Of course with heavy lifting things, your husband and the Most High are there to contribute. But ladies, stop bothering your husbands about little things like household chores. Remember, we're not part of the world, which means you don't subscribe to what other worldly women are having their husbands do. That's their business. We're about nation building and following the blueprint the Most High established for us. 

Now if you and your husband have an agreement and he does That's an agreeement between you and your spouse. But if the agreement was for you to work in the home..and your husband is providing..exactly what is the issue?  Think about it.

Have a great day Sis! You got this!
