She is clothed in strength and dignity; and laughs without fear of the future.
Carry yourself with the strength and power that comes from the Lord. Strength to make decisions in your life that honor God. Live each day with integrity and righteousness knowing that God will supply all your needs until you rejoice with Jesus for all eternity.
All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy. The way to a happy heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder. Be grateful for the little things that God can use to fill your heart with joy.
The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Choosing your friends is a big deal because whether you know it or not you become like the people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who encourage you and make a positive impact in your life. Your friends should inspire and motivate you to do good and be a better person. Choose your friends wisely and be a good friend too.
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Let’s make an effort to encourage the people around us, our friends and family, especially our spouse and our children. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing yet it is so valuable. Let’s build each other up with loving and kind words that promote hope and courage and help us believe in ourselves when we feel overwhelmed. One kind word can change someone’s entire day.
Feeling joy in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems. Focus on the good things and be grateful for them to find joy in your life. It’s not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy. Give thanks to the Lord for in his presence is fullness of joy.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.” Those are the times you have to accept that you will not understand everything God is doing and you just have to trust that everything God does is done out of love for us.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Even if you are physically beautiful on the outside, if you have an ugly heart and a bad attitude it makes your whole being ugly. True beauty lies in the transformation God makes in your life. See yourself the way God sees you, perfect in his sight. (Hebrews 10:14).
