The "Proverbs 31 Woman" appears to be a bundle of energy. Where does she get it all...and can she send me some? She maintains her health insofar as she is able: she gets enough sleep, and eats food that will fuel her body. She knows (or can discover) what her purpose is, and does it willingly. Fulfilling one's purpose gives energy; fighting one's purpose drains energy.
...I believe God loves us regardless of our age, gender, eye color, skin color, level of education, etc etc etc. I believe as long as we are fulfilling our purpose, we are not 'eating the bread of idleness'. Let's face it. It's a big world with a lot that needs to be done. The world needs people with energy of mind, body and soul.
This is basically word for word from my original Blogging from A to Z post from April ... with a little creative editing. I've been working at collecting the posts and making them into an e-book to giveaway. This week I've hit a bit of a snag.
I wanted to add some quotes for each quality, in addition to any Proverbs 31 verses that happen to fit. A large quantity of the quotes for "altruism" are really quite negative - anything and everything from blanket questioning people's motives to saying the world would not survive if people kept practicing altruism. So, I've had a little funk for a couple of days and now I'm picking up the pieces and getting on with it.
Anyway, I talk a lot about purpose in the #8sunday lines. How do/did you know when you find/have found your purpose?
