Visiting My Dear Friend

perfect-woman.jpgI decided to visit a good friend of mine. We have one of those relationships that didn’t begin as a natural fit. You know the kind. You’re sort of forced together because of the gospel but if left to your own preference you would probably never be friends. Part of the reason for our rough beginning was the fact that she seemed so perfect. In comparing myself with her I was always frustrated by how inferior I am to her. Just the mention of her name induced an internal, “ugh, not her again…”  But by God’s grace, as I got to know her something changed. Rather than feel intimidated, frustrated, and even at times put off by her excellence, I began to see how compellingly beautiful she truly is. I began to want to be like her. Maybe you’ve met her. She is my dear friend, the Proverbs 31 woman.

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss is in the middle of a series about the Proverbs 31 woman. She issued a challenge: 31 days with Proverbs 31. I am taking the challenge. I am beginning with verse ten rather than verse one, but I want to revisit my old friend and learn from her once again. My plan is to read and meditate on one verse per day praying that God will inspire me afresh to pursue the beauty of biblical womanhood as it is described in this precious passage of scripture.

 

As a sort of accountability for me, and as time permits, I will try to post about what I’m learning as I read this verse by verse. I hope it will be a discussion via comment box.

 

What do you think of my friend?
